Happy Fat Tuesday! There is so much to this holiday that I just love, and with the lovely pandemic going on it’s a little hard to go out and celebrate it right? I had all these plans to decorate at home, have some little DIY’s to do like make masks, coloring sheets, queen for a day, etc. My husband got called in for overtime, it snowed a lot, and the kiddo had a snow day, so that threw all the cooking plans out the window. But we still sort of celebrated!
For dinner, cajun chicken and cornbread is what was on the menu. Hadley is more on the picky side so she had her own little meal. I looked up Fat Tuesday meal ideas, and here’s one I wanted to try. I had some other things in mind to make, but decided to minimize the amount of food for just myself while my husband worked.
The cajun chicken was so good! I’ll link the recipe down below, but I omitted a lot. Basically I just added the seasonings, and left out the peppers, and the cheese only because I didn’t have provolone. And I haven’t had cornbread in such a long time, it was delicious!
Attempting to make a king cake for the first time was a bit tricky. First of all, I do not own a bundt cake pan which was a little hard. So I used a regular nine inch cake pan, and put a tiny glass jar in the center. It actually worked pretty well! The recipe I made was keto friendly so it called for almond flour instead of regular flour which always makes cake like things a little different. For being only 3 carbs a slice, it wasn’t that bad! For the hidden baby, we used a mini lego man!
I secretly love this holiday, and happy to do a little something to celebrate! What are your favorite Fat Tuesday things to do?
