Who Ate My Armadillo?

Howdy ladies. It is Ruby Tuesday at Work of the Poet. So, I am joining in for the first time.

Last month I had the opportunity to visit Natchitoches, LA, for a tour of homes. One of those houses happened to be the home featured in the movie, Steel Magnolias. If you have not seen this flick, leave now and rent it....If you have seen the movie, you will remember the Red Velvet Armadillo Cake. This was the groom's cake created by "Weezer" for "Shelby's" wedding. Well....the fabulous owners of the Steel Magnolia house offered all of us on the tour a bit of nostalgia in the form of....you guessed it....Red Velvet Armadillo Cake. It was served in the garage right where it was served in the movie. It was delicious and comical all at the same time.

Thanks for stopping in to the mansion.
