Today Is “Fat Tuesday”

Today is “Fat Tuesday” marking the end of Mardi Gras celebrations. Fat Tuesday gives us permission to chow down on rich and fatty foods before the fasting ritual of the Lenten season, which for us Catholics is Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday. So treat yourself to some goodies today because tomorrow we FAST (ha,ha) I give up sweets every year. It doesn’t help much in the weight department, but I’d like to think it does (ha,ha) Fat Tuesday is the only day of the year I can be myself (a little self deprecating humor)
