My Mardi Gras Checklist

I’m not going to lie. Mardi Gras is not my favorite holiday. Growing up a block away from a parade route kind of ruined the magic - I’ve seen some strange things to say the least (most of which were on or near my front lawn)!

Plus I have a weird thing about giving people the right to hurl things at my head.

With that said, every Mardi Gras I do have a few “musts” in the food department. Here is a checklist I compiled this year. Without all of these things combined, it doesn’t quite feel like Mardi Gras.

A drive through daiquiri

Randazzo’s king cake

Boiled crawfish
I was lucky enough to have crawfish twice this week :-)

Abita Strawberry

Popeyes Fried Chicken

And something new I discovered this year: Blue Moon in a can
SO refreshing after drinking crappy Miller Lite all day!

I’m proud to say I accomplished my checklist this year. Happy Mardi Gras Yall!

  1. Blue Moon in a can? Jackpot! I need to find this!
    All of your Mardi Gras essentials make me miss Louisiana, and make me really hungry :)
