Fat Tuesday Is Coming: Here's How to Celebrate Mardi Gras at Home! by Holly Budde
Mardi Gras is the traditional parade before the season of Lent. The end of Mardi Gras is commonly known as "Fat Tuesday" because the next day begins Lent: 40 days of sacrifices before Easter – and it’s common to give up something for Lent. Once I gave up beer; once I gave up candy. And the hardest? My Diet Coke addiction! But Fat Tuesday is always a party. Want some quick ideas to participate? Here are a few:
- Make gumbo, shrimp, crab cakes, desserts, dips and snacks.
- Decorate a table with purple, gold and green beads and Mardi Gras masks!
- In the south, no Fat Tuesday is complete without a king cake (recipe coming!). Hide the baby in the cake and whoever gets that piece brings next year’s cake.
It can be a fun day for the whole family!
