25 Mardi Gras Food Favorites

Raise your hand if you love comfort food. *Raises hand* We love it around here so anytime we have an excuse to pull up a chair to a hearty bowl of something a little spicy and savory, we’re happy to do so. This time of year, we’re all about things like jambalaya, shrimp and grits and beignets as we celebrate the spirit of Mardi Gras.
