What is up y'all!
So how is everyone getting FAT today?! I'm a fail. I did not have any Cajun or Creole food today. :(
Anywho, what is everyone giving up for Lent? I will give up the one thing I give up every year. I am giving up Lent for Lent. I mean, my birthday is ALWAYS during Lent. No fun!
Here's a better question: what are you EATING for Mardi Gras? Jambalaya? Gator? Right now, I wish I was having gumbo from Brenda's French Soul Food. *sigh*
Right now as I am typing this, there is a dope block party going on in the Fillmore. Or should I say "Feel-mo?" I work 5 minutes away from there and I feel like such a wretched fail for not joining on the fun! I am so excited for the Fillmore. So many new restos opening in that area this year! Looking forward to Hapa Ramen setting up shop!
One place Keat and I checked out over there earlier this year is Gussie's on Fillmore and Eddy. Lemme just say, it's LEGIT! Mac n' cheese, collards, corn bread, candied yams. Yum! I know for sure they are having a special for tonight's festivities, so if you're in the area, check it. Oh I must not forget: they have RED VELVET WAFFLES. Keat had the original waffles and after the meal, he said, "F (the other well-known chicken and waffle spot)!"
Have a great one y'all and let the good times roll! I, on the other hand, will be in bed. Haha, goodnight y'all!
