By Kelsey Banfield |

jambalayaFat Tuesday is tomorrow. This is a special day set aside for feasting on rich, fatty foods before the beginning of Lent. There is all sorts of interesting history behind the holiday. I have never been to Mardi Gras or officially celebrated Fat Tuesday, but I have eaten the food featured on this particular food holiday several times. I love anything that is cooked with butter and cream so, in a way, Fat Tuesday is right up my alley. We have tons of great Fat Tuesday recipes here at The Family Kitchen. All of these things can be made in the comfort of your own kitchen and don’t require any truly complicated cooking techniques!

    I made an awesome lighter version of Jambalaya yesterday for my Fat Tuesday blog post today! It’s Weight Watcher friendly but still has all the heat and savory spice too it. Andouille Sausage and Shrimp too! DELICIOUS!
