Happy Mardi Gras

It’s Fat Tuesday, Sassafras’s favorite holiday! To celebrate we had Tofu Jambalaya from Fat Free Vegan and okra. I probably should have drained the tofu a little more, but the flavors of the dish were great.

I attempted to make hand grenades, but this recipe was just awful. I watered it down with some ginger ale so we could drink it. It wasn’t like being at the Tropical Isle, but that’s probably a good thing.

And finally, king cake! It’s not Mardi Gras without one. I made a cream cheese filled king cake this year and this recipe from PETA is pretty good, but it was hard to tell when the cake is done. I baked it longer than the stated 20 minutes, but it probably should have stayed in a little longer.
