Ohhhh…if you know the mama at all, you know a few things:
1. I minored in French, so any excuse to use a French term or phrase is a happy occasion for me!
2. My family will use any excuse to throw a party!
3. The more glitter the better is my motto in life!
4. And I’m packing and moving this week and next! (Yikes!)
So, what do these 4 things have in common? Well…today is Mardi Gras (point 1), and I think we should celebrate (point 2) with the rest of New Orleans (point 3) but I’m swamped with moving, so I’m going to cheat and show you how to do it the easy way (point 4).
For dinner tonight, you should totally whip up a yummy batch of my Jambalaya. It will do New Orleans proud!
And for dessert…
Don’t you worry…the mama might be packing and boxing up stuff today but I’m wearing my purple sparkly eyeliner and a strand of beads. Nothing stops this gal from celebrating a holiday!
Happy Mardi Gras!
