Mardi Gras Recipe Roundup

by Erin

Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday so let’s eat! Here’s a list of recipes to keep you satisfied all day long.

Most of you are super excited for another week to finally be over and are looking forward to the weekend. For me every day is the weekend so it’s just another day, in a good way. I actually do have weekend plans though, as I am going to see a play on Sunday with my parents called The Trip to Bountiful. It has received great reviews so I look forward to seeing it. Guess that means I will miss the Academy Awards… oh well.

One thing to look forward to once your weekend is over is Mardi Gras! Also known as the perfect excuse to drink on a weekday (along with Cinco de Mayo, July 4th, St. Patrick’s Day, life, etc.). After compiling this roundup it became evident that I need to work on my stock of Mardi Gras recipes. Only twelve fourteen!? Disgraceful (UPDATE on 2/19/2020 = now 21). Evidently my taste buds don’t celebrate this holiday as much as the others. At least the recipes I do have are keepers, and I’ll be posting at least one more by Tuesday.

One year ago: Perfect Potatoes Au Gratin

Two years ago: Homemade Almond Butter

Three years ago: Over Easy Breakfast Bagel Sandwich


Baked Peanut Butter Beignets with Chocolate-Coffee Sauce 5


Chicken & Sausage Gumbo 1



Voodoo Daiquiri 1

All of this food has me wishing we were going to be in New Orleans to actually join in the real celebrations. I went once when I was in middle school visiting a friend but didn’t get to experience the adult version haha. The only other time I have been to New Orleans was for our Honeymoon which happened to land on Southern Decadence!
