Eating traditional gumbo after Mardi Gras festivities in Mamou, La.

Mardi Gras is one of those days that makes me miss my Louisiana family and friends so much more than normal.

I tried to give my south Louisiana native husband a taste of home with a Cajun dinner out last night. My sister and brother-in-law watched Miles so we could enjoy the special Mardi Gras menu at Franklin Street’s Lamasco Bar and Grill.

We had a great time and indulged in some really tasty food. I got a pound of boiled crawfish, Michael a shrimp Po’boy and we split an order of jambalaya.

Hope everyone has a great and safe Mardi Gras.
