Are you getting ready to revel in the flavor of Mardi Gras?

If you can’t actually be in New Orleans for Fat Tuesday, then the next best thing is to eat and party as if you are!

All you need for that are some spectacular Cajun, Creole, and Southern Comfort food, good friends - and a great party dress that you could win in our SheSpeaks Mardi Gras Giveaway!* 

To enter, just tell us in the comments below what kind of festive dishes you'll be cooking to celebrate!

Will it be any of these traditional favorites? Or are you trying some new recipes?

 Beignets    Big Easy Gumbo
 Shrinp Boil    Bananas Foster
 Louisiana Crepes    Muffalettas
 Jambalaya with Shrimp and Andouille Sausage    Calas Rice Fritters

And now for the Prize!
Our lucky winners will be able to choose anything from a party dress to a gown with the help of a $50 e-card from Rent the Runway! They'll receive the dress they order plus a free back-up size for a four or eight day rental period. After the party, simply mail the dress back in its pre-paid envelope.
