Mardi Gras

9 Mar

Today is Ash Wednesday. That means yesterday was Fat Tuesday – Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras means a ton of food and King Cake. I was a lucky one and got to have both. And even better: I BAKED my own King Cake! But, I’m getting ahead of myself. First off was the Beth’s Bake.

Beth’s Bake is a creation from Boyfriend’s childhood friend’s mother. I know, it’s a long way out, but thank goodness for that friend’s mother! This dish is like lasagna with crescents instead of noodles. It’s so hearty and perfectly delicious. So, while we started cooking this for dinner, I got started prepping the King Cake.

I was really hesitant about how it was going to turn out since I don’t have the best luck with cakes in the first place. Second of all, I didn’t really have the proper tools. I fudged my way around the recipe and managed to produce a somewhat decent cake.

So, with a belly full of King Cake, I began seriously thinking about what I was going to give up/do for the better. I always try to think about it ahead of time so I don’t fall back on the usual “giving up dessert.” (I dislike giving up dessert because that really signifies the end of my meals!) So, here’s what I came up with: I’m going to give up swearing all together. For the better, I’m going to work on not saying God’s name in vain. I’ll let you know how it goes in 40 days. 🙂 Happy Ash Wednesday.
