Yesterday, we celebrated Fat Tuesday with some Mardi Gras recipes and activities. It's the only day of the year that we toss the word "fat" around so carelessly. We usually go with "puffy", as in, I can't button my jeans today because I'm too puffy from the three Paczski and two slices of King Cake I ate yesterday.
We made these fun "Muffuletta Roll-Ups". I also made some with just ham and cream cheese that were a bit more kid-friendly. They were a big hit!
The girls and I colored Mardi Gras masks and pictures of bead necklaces. Aidan couldn't be convinced to join in. We found all kinds of great printables on Pinterest. You can find my Mardi Gras page here.
For dinner, we had Red Beans & Rice and our Muffuletta Roll-Ups, along with some "Alligator Juice" that was just light-colored juice mixed with green food coloring.
For dessert, we had our annual King Cake from Sunflour Bakehaus. They make awesome cakes and we get one every year! The baby popped up in Annalise's slice so she's looking forward to a year of good luck!
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
