I don't celebrate Fat Tuesday but I have always wanted to go to Mardi Gras. I love a good party!

Nothing special for Fat Tuesday. I'm still recovering from indulging last Saturday-exercising more and eating fewer calories.

Fat Tuesday is the last day of Mardi Gras, Carnival, etc. It's the last day to party and really eat before Ash Wednesday and Lent begins tomorrow where you fast and reflect during the Lenten season until Easter.

Pancakes and (canadian) bacon sound good. I think that's another Fat Tuesday tradition.

I don't know about healthier. The salads (or other dishes to pass) are across the board so I'm pretty sure most of them are not healthy. And then they serve packis - jelly filled donuts which I do not like. I only take a little of this and a little of that, my plate's not too full and I don't make myself uncomfortable. Otherwise it's a long night of restlessness and nightmares.

You know, a salad supper sounds a lot healthier than pancakes....but, I'm sticking with the pancakes! I did at least get some canadian bacon to have instead of real bacon....

I don't really understand what Fat Tuesday represents...other than a big party. I guess I could google it and figure it out.

At my church the Women's Club hosts a Salad Buffet tonight. They cater beef sandwiches and chicken and broasted potatoes. Then everyone brings a salad for sharing, thus salad buffet. After dinner there's a raffle with lots of donated prizes. It's alot of fun and can be crazy.

I usually do pretty good on not overeating. And tomorrow is Ash Wednesday so hopefully it'll be a good week.
