Happy Mardi Gras!

I spent about 7+ years living in Louisiana (out of the 10 years) and Ruston, Louisiana is home.
It is where my heart is, it is where my belly loves.
I learned a lot about myself and a lot about cooking when I lived in the great state of Louisiana.
Yes. The interstates may have pot holes and people may talk funny, but Louisiana is quite an awesome state. At graduate school, a good friend from South Louisiana saw all the Cajun dishes I was whipping up in my kitchen and gave me the nickname: "Asian Cajun."

And what respectable Asian Cajun wouldn't center tonight's supper around a Mardi Gras theme?

Cajun chicken and sausage linguine.
I "skinnified" this dish but saw I still have some sausage left, so I tossed it in there.

And King Cake.
Mardi Gras isn't complete without a King Cake. 
Not skinnified, but this will be the one and only King Cake I'll make this year.

I am going to go eat my yummy supper now and then hop on the treadmill to run a little later tonight.
Yeah, it is Fat Tuesday.
But let's not get too fat. :)

Happy Mardi Gras!
Laissez les bon temps rouler.(Let the good times roll).
