The History of Fat Tuesday – #TuesdayFoodsday #TravelTuesday

I have had the fortunate opportunity of spending some quality time in New Orleans and have learned a great deal about their Mardi Gras customs.  Today we share them with you along with some of the history of the day.  If I were back in college I would have been celebrating Fasching in a nearby town that was settled by Germans, as that is their Mardi Gras.

Have a happy and safe Fat Tuesday!  Below are some links to Mardi Gras recipes:

Red Beans and Rice

King Cake

Beignets

And if you are in NOLA, stop by Montrel’s for some good food!
