Every year on Fat Tuesday we enjoy a festive family supper of jambalaya and king cake. Fun family dinners are my jam and I love any old excuse to pull one off.
I use the same table decorations each year, storing them with my Valentine’s and St. Patrick’s Day stuff. I didn’t get started on my jambalaya until way too late in the afternoon. I wish I could blame it on mounds of homework or household chores. But really, it was snowing on and off all day and I just couldn’t get motivated to do anything useful. As such, I forgot to cook the chicken so we just went with ham and sausage this year. It was still delish!! Find the recipe >>> HERE <<<
Given my late start on the main course, it’s a good thing I picked up a king cake at the grocery store. One of these years I want to order a real one from NOLA. MMMMM…. bestie B’s mom sent us one every year to the ZTA house in college. Publix can’t really hold a candle to the real deal.
I’ve loved following along with bestie R on all of his Mardi Gras adventures and amazing decorations. He does it right. And I miss him SO much!
