Laissez les bons temps rouler!
(Let the good times roll)
Mardi Gras, also called Shrove Tuesday,or Fat of the Epiphany (Three King’s Day) and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”, reflecting the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. From Wikipedia.com
I’ve never made it to New Orleans for a Mardi Gras (yet) but I try to celebrate it in spirit. I try to find s restaurant that serves Po’ Boys and Red Beans & Rice.
This is one holiday that is fun to celebrate. One of these years, I will make it there. Until then… I’ll make sure to celebrate here in Texas.
