Fat Tuesday!!...OH BOY does this mean I can EAT and not feel Guilty???



Happy 'FAT TUESDAY' ...I just love that title... just seems to absolve all my eating guilt...at least for one day!! Mardi Gras ...ahhhhh a wonderful fun celebration (wish I was there right now...and could stay through the whole celebration) GREAT Food, Great Libations, Fun People...and enough Color and visuals to last a lifetime. I LOVE New Orleans.
Any who... I just thought in honor of Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday (Love that name) ...it might be fun to post a couple of pics of necklaces that I made for Richard and myself when we were invited to a big Mardi Gras Party one year... I had so much fun making these....Richard sculpted the Chicken Foot...you would swear it was real, in loving memory of our Pet Chicken 'Hen-Retta'...both necklaces contain 'goodies' I have collected or made over the years ...strong medicine for me I figured... everything has a meaning and memory for Richard and or Me. Anyway, they hang on my studio wall all year...but I wear them this time of the year for a few days...freaks people out at the super market...
All of a sudden I have this MAD DESIRE for a beniet and a cafe au lait...
Happy Fat Tuesday (still lovin that name)
Later,
Jodi

Oh, I love Mardi Gras and I love your necklaces! What a great idea!! I especially love the one with the chicken foot. That's really funny about the people at the supermarket.

Happy Fat Tuesday to you too,
Jamie

So for us I suppose it is Fat Tuesday, all that Batter to make the pancakes which we eat with lots of Sugar sprinkled over the top with a Squeeze of Lemon.. Mmmmm

Shrove Tuesday! Wow that is interesting Debbie...I love learning new things...ESPECIALLY when it pertains to PANCAKES...YUM YUM YUM!!! Lemon and sugar sounds heavenly...as a kid we use to put butter jam and a sprinkle of powder sugar...never had syrup.

Happy Shrove Tuesday
