I took yesterday off from work to cook. That was the sole purpose of my day and I was in heaven. I’ve shared often that my work family loves to eat. In fact, everyone either loves to eat or loves to cook (or both). Which makes for some great special occasion spreads. Today we celebrated Mardi Gras with a giant pot of Chili Gumbo and a platter of Mardi Gras Wings. It was a good day.
