Mardi Gras Round-Up

By Weliketocook @welike2cook
Mardi Gras Round-UpMany people do not know that the term Mardi Gras actually means “Fat Tuesday.” Fat Tuesday is the last day of the Carnival season that begins January 6th which is the twelfth day after Christmas, (yes, like in the song). Fat Tuesday is the last opportunity to celebrate before Lent which begins on Ash Wednesday. This pre-Lenten carnival has Roman Catholic origins and is celebrated in New Orleans, as well as Brazil, France, Germany.
Here is our collection of Cajun and Creole dishes worthy of celebrating!
  • King Cake
  • Red Bean Gumbo
  • Pot Roast Po’Boys
  • Red Beans and Rice
  • Crawfish Etouffee
  • Shrimp with Creole Sauce
  • Blackened Salmon
  • Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya
  • Pecan Pralines
  • Creole Calas
  • Bananas Foster

Laissez les bon temps roulez!
