Last Tuesday was Mardi Gras! My family, being Catholic and living in a former French colony, celebrated with homemade crepes filled with everything you could image! I mostly had chocopain (chocolate/peanut spread), but there was also cheese and ham, jam, and other things I didn’t really know but tasted good! These were all prepared in candlelight since the electricity was out. On top of that, there were fish filled pastries and little balls of fried dough we ate with onion sauce. It was quite a feast, and I definitely ate my weight in food that night.
Usually after dinner, the kids dress up in costumes (traditionally boys dress as girls and girls as boys), and run around the neighborhood, like Halloween. But since the power was out in the neighbor, we stayed in and I ended up just going to bed cuz I was so full.
