Some of you who may have read my post yesterday will know that I indulged in Lundi Gras … or Fat Monday … a pre-party / opportunity to stuff my face in the day leading up to Mardi Gras … or Fat Tuesday.
A two-day binge-o-thon as it were.
Something to help me get through the self-promised losing weight effort set to start … coincidentally … with Lent tomorrow.
Counter-productive, you say? Well, there’s that.
This is similar to Shrove Tuesday … aka Pancake Tuesday.
Do you notice a recurring theme here?
And no, I have not had pancakes … yet.
In the manner of all things Mardi Gras Mask, I will say that I have been utilizing them since last summer when this Happy Holly Project began.
Although to be honest … other than the faux peacock feather … for some reason I am reminded of an antacid commercial.
But I digress.
Although I’ve never been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans … beads, parades, LSU colors, krewes, and Kelly Clarkson notwithstanding … I can certainly celebrate Fat Tuesday in my own way.
I have no King Cake here. Living alone, I would get the baby inside anyway … so what’s the point?
So far I have consumed some Lox and Bagels … a small bottle of Sparkling Grape Juice (it was so cute when I saw it the other day) … Cappucchino … some Twizzlers … some Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries (with liquid centers, of course) … and a few other things that were left over in the refrigerator.
And that’s just today.
The jury is still out on the popcorn.
I guess I should save something for the watching of the State of the Union Address tonight.
They say it’s not over till the fat lady sings …
I’m not even humming yet …
