CF129 - King Cake and Mardi Gras in New Orleans

We’re in the middle of Carnival season down here in New Orleans. Only one more week before the parades start to roll! Can’t wait! You may have never been to Mardi Gras. You may not even have pleasant thoughts when you think of Mardi Gras… Maybe the only thing you know about Mardi Gras is what you have seen on MTV and the news channels. For those folks bad news is good news, so they like to portray the seedier side of things. But that’s not what Mardi Gras is all about. Believe it or not, Mardi Gras is Catholic through and through. And on today’s show, were going to talk about the Catholic roots of Mardi Gras and the delicious tradition of the King Cake. Sarah Reinhard joins us with her Mary in the kitchen segment, and today Sarah reflects on finding Mary in the hunker-down days of winter and discovering the kitchen as the heart of her home. All this and more right here, at the Catholic Foodie, where food meets faith!

Feeding the Multitude... or just Your Neighbor - Part 1

Sunday's Mass readings were all about feeding and being fed. From Elisha's multiplying food and feeding 100 people in the Second Book of Kings to Jesus feeding the 5000 in the Gospel of John, we are reminded – as the Responsorial Psalm tells us – that "the hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs."Full show notes can be found at CatholicFoodie.com.

The last few days the Louisiana alligator has been in the media spotlight. Again. But this time it’s not because someone is screaming, “Choot ‘em! Choot ‘em!” Instead folks are screaming, “Cook ‘em! Cook ‘em!” On Fridays in Lent, that is.
