Beignets - Breakfast of Champions: A Dainty Mess

I know, everyone thinks their version of breakfast is the champion, but trust me, in New Orleans, Beignets with Café au Lait really is. You pick the beignet up with two fingers and stick you pinky finger out when you eat. Then the powdered sugar inevitable ends up everywhere - It's a real Dainty Mess. We enjoy Morning Call in City Park while we are in Mid-City and Cafe du Monde while in the French Quarter. (btw, they make a great mid-day snake and a great mid-night snack as well).
