Fat Tuesday

Fat Tuesday... it's all about the Moon Pies and beads.
This is the end of Mardi Gras season in the south~ everywhere I guess. No where is it celebrated like it is on the the gulf coast. NOLA they throw the beads in Mobile they are known for their moon pies... you can hear people calling.

"Throw me sum moon pie!"
In the past I have posted a recipe for a quick and easy King Cake, complete with a baby inside. Tonight we party...
Y'all enjoy~ tomorrow Lent begins!

Yikes! It's Ash Wednesday already?

I love the beads - and the Moon Pie too!

I knew about the beads, but not about the Moon Pies, well I know about Moon Pies, but not that they are thrown at Mardi Gras. My former principal used to order a king's cake from New Orleans for us, our new principal does not feel that connection. Let the good times roll, or at least when Lent is over.
