Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday! Although we are not Catholics, every year my husband gives up something for Lent. Usually he goes crazy on whatever it is the weekend and few days up through Fat Tuesday. Sometimes its booze, chocolate, TV etc. Last year we tried to give up swearing and put money in a jar everytime we did. We ended up with about 40bucks...thats pretty bad. Sam said it's the hardest thing he has ever tried to give up. Well, he has been sick with migraines for the past 4 days and was unable to have his pre-lent blowout.
I've been looking on the interweb for recipes for a "king Cake". It's a sweet bread cake and you hide a tiny doll in it before you cook it and whoever gets the "king" is supposed to be lucky I guess. Sounds like fun! I'll post tomorrow and tell what Sam has decided to give up......
should be interesting.
