fat-ish tuesday

i haven't been to new orleans during mardi gras
it sort of turns me off
jazz fest
is about as rowdy as i like to get

however
take a storied town
combined with
permission to indulge
and you are
talking my language

today
my indulgences will be
beignets

chicken and sausage gumbo
and
pralines

wishing you good times today
and
for those of you whom
share the 
traditions and faith
this season brings
a mindful 
lent

  6. Mmmmm...my favorite way to experience another locale or culture -- through their cuisine! Everything looks fabulous, but I'm particularly excited about those pralines!

    Definitely sharing a link on FB!
