Although I did manage to make it a true Mardi Gras so far, with Bojangles’ for breakfast and my first Peeps of the season, for a snack, I thought I’d post a great family recipe, that’s a healthy one. I made this a couple of weeks ago, and it almost tasted as good as the one my mom used to make. I hope everyone enjoys their king cakes and cajun cuisines. The hubs, girls and I are headed to a pancake dinner party tonight, with live jazz music. Gras Heureux Mardi! I’d love to know what y’all are giving up or adding for Lent. Mine maybe exercising everyday, still haven’t committed to anything yet. We’ll see… I still have a day to decide!
- 2 cans reduced fat crescent rolls
- 8 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
- ½ cup light mayonnaise
- 1 pkg. Hidden Valley ranch dressing mix (small pack)
- 1½ cups broccoli florets, chopped
- 1½ cups cauliflower florets, chopped
- 1/2 cup 2% cheddar cheese, grated
On another note, our gas here may be $4 soon! It’s insane! The hubs used to drive an hour and a half to work and then back everyday, with his old job, a couple of years ago. Thankfully, he now works close to home. I can’t even imagine the cost of his travel for work, if he were still with the old one!

This looks incredibly delicious! I love love love broccoli so I think I'm going to have to try this!
I love that pizza! We make it all the time. If you get lazy and don't want too cut up the veggies, we use the broccoli slaw alot on top and it tastes great! It saves so much time, that is how I made it for Sterling's birthday and it was a big hit!
I love pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. I am giving up sweets in all forms.

Happy Fat Tuesday to y'all! It was a big day here in Mobile!
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
That looks so good! And I love that it's a veggie recipe because they are hard to come by 🙂
I'm giving up cheese….and there is nothing better than wine and cheese together! It's going to be a long 40 days without cheeseburger happy meals (my guilty indulgence) Haha!
