Fat Tuesday: RT's

Josh and I have a tradition (two years running) of celebrating Fat Tuesday at our favorite Cajun Restaurant...RT's. Their food is legit...authentic, tasty, and incredible! 

They also play jazz and all of the waiters dress up. You feel like you are smack dab in the middle of the French Quarter and right on Bourbon Street. 
LOVES IT!

This year we celebrated with our friends Michael and Amber, and we DID NOT skimp on the food. 
Shrimp & Crawfish Beignets,  Oysters Rockefeller, Shellfish in Parchment, and Crawfish Etouffee
*Not Pictured Creole Caesar Salad
We had great time drinking, eating and laughing...but were SO SO SO stuffed. However leaving without dessert would be blasphemous...so we all ordered several to go!

I spent the rest of the night eating pie in bed while watching the State of the Union.
Decorations at RT's and the best Chocolate Chess Pie ever...even better because it was eaten in bed.
All in all it was a fabulous Fat Tuesday!
Thank you Amber and Michael for making it even better!

Did you do anything fun for Fat Tuesday?

Did you watch the SOTU? What did you think?
I watched, kind of fell asleep because I was so full, and then woke back up for Senator Rubio's rebuttal. I thought he did excellent...even if he got a bit parched!

What are you giving up for Lent?
I am giving up eating out. Hence why I went cray cray on the food last night. I have to bring my lunch everyday and cannot eat out at restaurants either. The only time that it is ok is if I am traveling which only happens once in the Lenten season. 

Happy Ash Wednesday!
