Mardi Gras

I’m attending a community planning meeting this morning to help save programs at my child’s school. Then helping my parents move some stuff at the new house. Then? Then, Todd and I get to go to our friend Lucy’s Mardi Gras party. Lucy is a Mobile native and they have a party every year. This is our first chance to attend, so we are very excited. Anyone have a great Mardi Gras-themed appetizer or side dish recipe?

And in honor of Lucy’s Mobile Mardi Gras party, i thought I’d post a link to information on the Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center’s website about Mardi Gras in Mobile.

I could seriously spend two weeks straight going through all the awesome stuff digitized at The Library of Congress’ site.

    I don’t have a mardis gras app suggestion per se but in the spirit of a King Cake you should go get one of those little plastic babies and hide it in a 7 layer bean dip. And then make a crown so that whoever get the baby is pronouced –not king/queen of Mardis Gras–but King/queen Frjole. Crown, should match the theme of a frijole dip.

    Make a dirty rice – its really easy and totally yummy. Its just like fried rice but with sausage, ground beef ,pork, etc. And it’s cheapy cheap.
