Laissez les bons temps rouler ~ Celebrate Mardi Gras wherever you are! 48 hour giveaway!!

We are getting ready for a Mardi Gras celebration at our house! I am doing a Zatarains House Party and cannot wait to share my famous shrimp Jambalaya and our Hurricanes with friends and family—

And for my readers for Mardi Gras, I get to share a giveaway of fantastic Zatarains boxed meals, spice blends and gravy mixes and a bunch of other tasty products I’m sure you will enjoy!!

In getting ready for my Fat Tuesday party, I have gotten some great ideas and had a lot of fun visiting the Zatarains Facebook Mardi Gras pages. You can get wonderful recipes, download big easy music, jazz up your profile picture and even watch Chef John Besh create fast, delicious recipes.

Did you know? A Big Easy Celebration: Perhaps contrary to popular belief, most of New Orleans’ Mardi Gras celebrations actually take place in the home, away from the revelry most commonly associated with the French Quarter. Centered around time-honored dishes that are both flavorful and easy to prepare, the food brings family and friends together.

Check out some of these ideas to hold a simple and fun Mardi Gras with your family!

  • Visit “Mardi Gras Central” at Facebook.com/Zatarains for Carnival recipes, music, live parade videos and to jazz up your profile pic! (Even get coupons!)
  • Host your own Mardi Gras party at home.
  • Extend the holiday with costumes, authentic desserts and the festive Carnival colors. How about some King Cake cupcakes??
