Fat Tuesday is almost upon us. In Detroit where I grew up it is known as Paczki Day, a day when many Polish filled donuts are consumed. But probably most of you equate Fat Tuesday with New Orleans and the tasty dishes they make there. Red Beans and Rice, Jambalaya, Etouffee, Gumbo, the list goes on. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! It almost passed me by until I happened to see something about it on the interwebs. “I’ve got to make something special for this!”, I exclaimed. So towards that end, I have already prepared my roux for my special Fat Tuesday recipe. The roux wasn’t made in the pressure cooker, but the main attraction will certainly be.
So check back this weekend to see how I plan on utilizing this chocolatey-looking concoction.
