Fat Tuesday!

Fat Tuesday
Today is Fat Tuesday! It surprises me how many people don’t even know what that means. Mardi gras is French for Fat Tuesday, referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten (Lent) season, which begins on Ash Wednesday. My daughter-in-law and I have been making a point of eating healthier lately. She has been working out in the evenings, me not so much. I asked her the other day what we were going to give up for lent. I was thinking of fast food. I’m sure she would kill me to have to go that long without a quick meal plan for the kids. (I’m sure they wouldn’t be too fond of me either!) I will know by the end of today since tomorrow starts the fast!
