My King Cake is in the oven and the ingredients for Jambalaya are on the counter. Looks like I'll be spending more time in the kitchen today than in the sewing room but that is OK...it is only Fat Tuesday one day a year.
Beaded fire hydrant!
Fat Tuesday is the last day of Madi Gra and the last day to celebrate before Lent. Mainly Madi Gra is celebrated in the Gulf area (primarily New Orleans area) but in the past decade or so it has spread across most of the south. Both my husband and I love Jazz music and Cajun cooking so we adopted the holiday as well.
