Every Day There's Something Worth Celebrating

Remember that song about the Twelve Days of Christmas? Today is the Twelfth Day. In the Catholic church it's known as the Feast of the Epiphany, the day that the Three Kings visited Jesus. The day is also the beginning of the Mardi Gras season, which continues through Fat Tuesday (the day before Lent starts).

Hubby Tony cooks dinner on Sundays. To tie his meal in with the Mardi Gras season, today he served roasted Cajun-spiced butternut squash on top of a bed of rice, and smothered everything with a gravy made with the trinity of onions, celery, and green bell pepper. The entree was accompanied by a Cajun cole slaw.

 Dessert was baked apples served with an almond butter dipping sauce.
