Mardi Gras (post #71111)

Wow, Mardi Gras certainly did sneak up on me and while I have nothing planned for today I am inspired just at the thought, corny I know, but what a great excuse for a gumbo or etouffee among other things.   

I'll have to take a look at that Gumbo YaYa since that is what my grands call me, but I have an Acadian shrimp creole recipe that I have used for years that we love and just might fit the bill for a special dinner.

Anyone else have special plans to celebrate Mardi Gras?  After all it is just another excuse to cook or have a party.

I have never celebrated Mardi Gras.  When I saw the preview of the beignets I was very tempted, but I hate deep frying.   Your food ideas sound scrumptous.
