Fat Tuesday

Seasoning Lent really helped us out today. It was one of those days when things just didn't go as planned. Luke didn't sleep well last night and after work today, I had to spend 3 hours getting a flat tire fixed. Typically, Carmen & I would use a day like this as an excuse to go out to eat, but we were both really looking forward to preparing tonight's meal so we stuck with it.

To celebrate Fat Tuesday, tonight's recipe was shrimp etouffee. I've never made etouffee before and was surprised how easy it was. It tasted great!

We also went ahead and prepared tomorrow's minestrone soup. We are not going to have much time tomorrow night because of prior commitments so we decided to have the meal ready. So far, it was the most involved recipe, but mostly because it required a lot of vegetables to be chopped. It's on the stove simmering now, and it smells delicious.
