Today is my "reading day" so I plan food that takes little preparation. In this case there is some leftover cassoulet that I turned into soup. We'll go into town to knock down a couple in honor of the occaision and come home to soup and bread. Although we aren't religious, with the exception of our birthdays, we'll try to be healthier for at least those 40 days.

Fat Tuesday never heard of it before. Is it celebrated in IN or IL? Above all what the heck is it a day to eat anything and everything fatty?

Fat Tuesday is the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, which is the beginning of Lent.

Fat Tuesday is the last chance for people to have a good time and to use up perishables such as butter, lard and other fats before they have to sacrifice for Lent.

Also referred to as "Mardi Gras" (French for 'fat tuesday'), which most Americans are familiar with.
