Supper begins around 5:30 (see below for more)
Bring your palm branches or crosses you saved from last year's Palm Sunday to burn - it's how we make the ashes for Ash Wednesday!
The day before the penitential season of Lent, when many fast or abstain from certain rich foods or alcohol as a discipline, Shrove Tuesday was traditionally the time when you cleaned out all the rich foods from your kitchen like butter and sweet things, and made a feast. Pancakes are a traditional Shrove Tuesday supper, and we'll have 'em! But we also like the way of celebrating what's known as Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) in New Orleans, so we'll also have jambalaya for those who want another kind of rich (& spicy) food.
