Welcome back to Tickle My Tastebuds Tuesday!
If you’re new here then a warm welcome to you too! Here you’ll find a fun party with lots of recipes to check out and you’ll find something yummy to put on your dinner table tonight.
Today is “Fat Tuesday.” So the features are all about Mardi Gras.
New Orleans is on my bucket list of places to visit. Mardi Gras would be a fun even to attend some day. I found this on Wiki if you want to get a brief description of Fat Tuesday
Mardi Gras (/ˈmɑːrdi ˌɡrɑː/), or Fat Tuesday, refers to events of the Carnival celebration, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany (Three Kings Day) and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday (known as Shrove Tuesday). Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday“, reflecting the practice of the last night of eating rich, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season.
Mardi Gras, as a celebration of life before the more-somber occasion of Ash Wednesday, nearly always involves the use of masks and costumes by its participants. In New Orleans, for example, these often take the shape of fairies, animals, people from myths, or various Medieval costumes as well as clowns and Indians (Native Americans). However, many costumes today are simply elaborate creations of colored feathers and capes. Unlike Halloween costumery, Mardi Gras costumes are not usually associated with such things as zombies, mummies, bats, blood, and the like, though death may be a theme in some. The Venice tradition has brought golden masks into the usual round of costumes.
The delicious features below will get you ready for your own Fat Tuesday!
