It’s Fat Tuesday!!!

Pin It

I’m so ashamed.  I forgot Fat Tuesday.  How?  I have no clue!  I can honestly say that I’ve never slacked on an opportunity to eat cajun food.  We even went out for a cajun lunch on Saturday.  I’ve bought all of the ingredients.  Now I’ve got to figure out what to do with them!

Thanks to the Zatarians sale at Dillons last year, I think I’ve got a couple of boxes of gumbo mix and a box of red beans and rice as a backup. 

Right now, I’m scouring the internet for recipes and ideas. 

Christy Jordan over at Southern Plate has a yummy looking recipe for Dirty Rice (don’t like dirty rice?  Check her blog out anyways.. awesome!).

You should definitely read Ninja Princess’ experience– a northerner presenting a king cake to other northerners- with one southerner in the mix.  Disaster in the making!

Mama Belle has an awesome recipe for shortcut gumbo.  I LOVE her logic!!  I highly doubt that I can buy jarred roux here.  She has tons of other recipes- I love her Super Bowl foods post.

Now I’m off to do a google search for some other cajun recipes!  The Zatarains mix is sounding better and better.
