Happy Mardi Gras! Or…Shrove Tuesday! Or whatever else this day might be called wherever you’re from. Here where I live, people mean well, but they just don’t get it. Me, I’ve spent plenty enough time on the Gulf Coast as well as growing up religious that I not only get it, it’s a bigger holiday for me than Christmas. And since I also live in an area with a pretty sizable Polish population, I’ve also been eating paczkis for a couple of weeks. Trust me, they’re not just donuts, no matter what bakeries who have no familiarity with Polish food might say. This year I screwed up on planning my meals and I couldn’t get to the grocery store so instead of red beans and rice with andouille sausage, I’m having to settle for a box of Zatarain’s dirty rice, but we’ll manage. And tonight I go out, although I may be old enough I’ll just wear purple, green and gold and skip worrying about earning any beads. I own enough from past years.
