In anticipation of my break I thought I'd throw a party (of course) and there is another reason too - next Wednesday is the beginning of Lent. I'm not Catholic but I do participate. For the 46 days of Lent I give up alcohol, commit to good clean eating, and a serious workout schedule. That leaves me the next 5 days to eat, drink and be merry before getting down to business!
Let's call this a Mardi Gras party!
I know we don't hear this kind of theme often in the land of blogs, but what I'd like to see this weekend and up until Tuesday at midnight is your most fattening calorie ridden favorites, deliciously decadent desserts, deep fried delights, and let's not forget the cocktail recipes too. Bring on your old recipes and new ones, no rules here. Go ahead and make a cake with a plastic baby inside too if you'd like. Party on people!
