Seafood Friday

Hello –  Friday – Hope you had a great week  ! It’s been quite this week after Mardi Gras ( Yes-we did survive) even school was closed for the week  Well it is a state Holiday !

But the End of Mardi Gras -begins the start of Lent. A time of repentance after the party leading till Easter. Because of this time of the year – many Catholics in South louisiana refrain from eating meat on Friday – So I’am sharing another Classic Recipe from  the recipe box – good at any time of year.
