Fat Tuesday

Post by Hovannes » Mon Feb 20, 2012 10:35 am

How's your Mardi Gras festivities planning coming along?
I'd like to do something to mark Fat Tursday but i'm not sure what. Maybe BBQ steaks? Dancing around the block with an umbrella while Jr beats his drum has kind of a Chestertonian whimsy to it. Tempting.

I'm planning on big ol' ribeye steaks, a bottle of good wine (TBD), and a cigar and scotch afterward. Unfortunately, Ash Wednesday mass starts at 6:30 AM, so I can't stay out too late.

Cigarson has suggested that we fast from bacon for Lent.

Red beans and rice, with sausage and cornbread ... normally a Monday meal, particularly for New Orleans, but we're having it tonite for fat tuesday. I couldn't help but think of Lush this evening ... hope he's not stuck working in the ER there.

What? No pancakes?

BF and I had pancakes and bacon and ham for supper last night.

Goodbye chocolate. All chocolate... gave it up for Lent.

Unlike 2009. The year I gave up my PIPE for Lent.

I enjoyed a dozen hot garlic wings, a side of fries, and a couple of beers. Also, had some ice cream before.

Giving up fried foods, alcohol, and eating after dinner. My more tangible goal is to lose 32 pounds during lent. True goal is to lead a more healthy lifestyle.

red beans and rice again, I think, for the wife and I. But I'm definitely going to try to locate and bring home some Paczki.

I've got some Cajun red beans in the fridge already.

I think we'll make some jambalaya.

With my waistline, every Tuesday is "Fat Tuesday."

Although I've lost 35lbs since last June.

I made Jambalaya with red beans, hot sausage and shrimp. I even impressed my kids with it! :D
Tomorrow I usher at the 8:00 AM (I hope my blue blazer will still fit! :oops: )

Okay.... the Mardi Gras Jambalaya kicks!

http://americanfood.about.com/od/southe ... a.htm?rd=1

Doubled it: Modified thus:

Stuck with one pound of shrimps. Added one pound of chicken breasts, sliced into strips.

Can't get genuine andouille sausage, but my butcher Fred makes the most awesome Cajun brats, ever.

Doubled recipe calls for 4 tbs of paprika. But grocery-store paprika is little more than food coloring. I used 2-1/2 tbs of authentic smoked Spanish paprika from Penzey's Spices. That was plenty!

I used long-grain white rice, because I didn't have any brown rice.

It went very well with every beer I had in the house.
