Fat Tuesday here means that we have two countries tradtion mashed together.   In the UK  it is pancake day,  my husband disslike that type of pancake but do like the Swedish porkpancake, so we make those.  Here in Sweden  it is Semmeldagen, which mean we have a sweet roll  filled with a soft almond cream paste and whipped cream as  dessert.

  I love Crawfish, they look like mini Lobsters, don't they!

I love the chicory/coffee blend of cafe au lait.   Tongue Out

Had tons of King cake while working in NOLA after Katrina.  Someone brought one to the office trailer.  Then whoever gets the "baby" had to buy the next round, and it goes on and on for an entire month.  And of course beignet and cafe au lait on the very first day Cafe du Monde re-opened.

Have you ever been to New Orleans? Surprised

Yes.  I went there several times for work. 

Do you like Crawfish?  Tongue Out

Yup.  In fish boil.  One of the (very few) healthier food choices in NOLA.  Everything else seems to be smothered, deep fried, and/or full of sugar.
