As promised, here are more pics from the Nyx Myx Masquerade Ball. First, let’s talk food.
Did you notice the hot pepper jelly vinaigrette mentioned for the salad. It was incredible, so I had to find a recipe for it. I found this recipe online and it was very good. I made it with Tabasco Hot Pepper Jelly and put it over butter lettuce with blue cheese and toasted pecans. Easy and yummy – I highly recommend this.
Okay, back to the ball. We were entertained by a mini parade by the St. Augustine Marching 100 that will be marching with our parade. They are fabulous and it is a really big deal for them to march with us. YAY, St. Aug’s! We were also wowed by the Siren’s of New Orleans who will also be joining us for the parade. I must say, it was really an amazing experience to be sitting in the ballroom when that incredible band marched in and then the Siren’s ran out to join them.
We also enjoyed the procession by our Krewe Captain, Julie Lea, Our “Goddess,” Lauren Thom and our board of directors and float captains.
It was just a wonderful evening and I am so glad to get to share it with you! Here are some other shots.
