We had us a nice little feast on Fat Tuesday and I even decorated a little
I had a recipe that I was following and while I liked the ingredients and decided to make it based on that...after I started to cook I completely changed it around. That's just how I roll.
Mix 2 teaspoons chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper and I threw in about 1/2 teaspoon of blackening seasoning too! mix that up and use as a dry rub on the chicken then toss on the grill.
Now go inside and mix together 1 can of black beans, a heaping cup or so of frozen corn and 1 cup of salsa
Just warm that up
We also had some of this rice cookin' up on the stove
Time to eat!
it was yum!
And it wouldn't be Fat Tuesday without one of these
I got my lovely little King Cake at Central Market. It cracks me up that they can't bury the baby Jesus in the cake for fear of someone eating him and choking and suing them. Crazy!!! Now it just looks like the baby Jesus is about to drown in a sea of purple sprinkles. Poor little "8 pound 6 oz baby Jesus" (name that movie)
So hubster and I each had a piece then I made him take it to work with him on Wednesday. Sharing the love and saving my backside. heee heee It was pretty tasty, just a few too many sprinkles on top.
In other news, I was selected to Host a DiGiorno pizza & Hoops House Party
