    Wondering how people here are celebrating Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday
    tomorrow.

    Our dinner is going to be simple this year as Wednesday we are taking
    our female cat to the vets to track down what's causing heavy gasping
    breathing and my nerves are shot worrying about my beloved
    pet of 12 years.

    Our dinner will be Jambalaya made with traditional chicken & Andouille
    sausage.
    Dessert will be bakery bought King Cake.

    Ours will be a traditional Shrove Tuesday splurge on pancakes (or shroves,
    as my children called them when they were young) with -- what else -- crepes
    for dessert.

    We're not. I was raised Protestant (but now I'm an atheist), so it
    isn't part
    of my cultural tradition. Apart from taking today as an excuse to eat
    paczki, there isn't much happening here in Michigan.

    Besides, it's a work day. If it's not too windy tonight, I'll grill a
    steak--it's
    supposed to reach 32 F today. Steak, salad, some starch (bread or
    pasta with butter/basil/garlic). No dessert on week nights, although
    if I feel
    like it I might eat some fruit after supper.

    Since you reminded me, i think I'll use the pound of Rock Shrimp I got
    at Trader Joe's, and make a shrimp creole pasta. Salad alongside.
    Nothing special, but at least a nod to it. And i'll dig out some beads
    to use as napkin rings =)

    We're 'celebrating' it by eating left overs. LOL!!

    Mock Beef Wellingtons - ground beef, mushrooms, cabbage, etc.., baked in
    dough.

    I wanted a King cake, but alas we found none. I was too pooped to do
    anything in the kitchen tonight. We went to Molina's mexican joint.
    I had a shrimp dinner.

    I did see somebody with Mardi Gras beads, but she had her shirt on.
