Last night I saw how the other side has been living. I went out (gasp) on a weeknight (gasp) to see a few bands play. I danced. I even drank a few beers. And I got home after midnight. I have to say, it was fun. But I’m fine with returning to my normal routine of early bedtimes and early rises.
So thank goodness I decided to honor my ladies’ holiday. I also decided to honor Fat Tuesday, heading to one of my faves, Bon Temps Creole Cafe for breakfast and eating as much as I possibly could. Tonight we’ll have vegan gumbo for dinner. I love Mardi Gras! And I’m not even Catholic, which makes it even better because I don’t have to give anything up for Lent come Wednesday.
Lastly, fried green tomatoes may just be my favorite things in the world. Especially when they’re served with red beans, grits, and a poached egg.
