This Tuesday, March 5, is Shrove Tuesday if you’re getting ready for Lent – famously known as Mardi Gras.
This celebration always features rich and decadent foods. That’s because people who observe Lent often forego foods they enjoy during the forty-day period leading up to Easter.
King Cakes, round yeast breads sprinkled with purple, green, and gold sugar, are a holiday mainstay. But local bakeries can sell out if you don’t order in advance.
