Subject: BS: Shrove Tuesday/ Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras
When I was a girl, Fat Tuesday was celebrated with a huge pancake and sausage breakfast - a last Hurrah before the season of Lent began. A cake decorated with colored sugar and a plastic baby baked inside was traditional. If you got the baby you had to bring the cake next year. I see Spaghetti Dinners being offered here in Maine - strange to me.

Anybody have a similar feast?

With the Saints winning the Super Bowl, I imagine New Orleans' Mardi Gras will be spectacular this year. A lot to celebrate as the city comes back to life.
