Fat Tuesday is only a week away and I can’t help but think that there needs to be a little Cajun action going on to celebrate it. And perhaps a few beads, because what would a Mardi Gras celebration be without beads. Just try not to do anything too embarrassing to get them. Remember, there are cameras everywhere nowadays, which means showing your bits is a seriously bad idea that will come back to haunt you.
I’m sure many of you are familiar with my addiction to Legion of Spice’s Bayou Black & Black n’ Bluesy Rub & Seasonings. After testing many other Cajun blends over the years, I can honestly say that these blends are real winners and the only ones I now allow in my kitchen. They have all the flavor you want in a Cajun seasoning, without all of the salt. Added bonus, ten percent of the profits from each sale are used to feed the hungry.
So folks, grab some Cajun seasoning, a big ol’ slice of king cake, and deck yourself out in as much yellow, purple, and green as your closet can handle. You know me, I’m a sucker for just about any holiday, especially if it means putting on a costume. And in this case, I think beads definitely count as a costume. Oh, and don’t forget, if you do grab a slice of that king cake, make sure not to swallow the baby. That’s bad luck, not to mention ill-advised.
