Food is an important part of celebrations throughout the world, regardless of culture. The next several days have many celebrations so we’ve been sorting through recipes to share with you that you and your family might prepare together to recognize these traditional festivities.
The Chinese New Year begins on February 10 – The Year of the Snake. Kung Pao Chicken with Noodles is one of our favorite chicken recipes and seems perfect for a Sunday meal with your family. The peppers create some lovely heat and the crunch of the peanuts really makes the dish. Another recipe with some heat from crushed red pepper is Chicken with Cashews, my favorite ingredient in this recipe is the fragrant fresh Ginger!
Just because we’re not in New Orleans doesn’t mean we don’t love the food and festivities of Mardi Gras! Our favorite restaurant is Commander’s Palace and the House Salad with Creole Mayonnaise Dressing is a staple at many of our special occasions at home, we call it “Bacon Salad”. The homemade croutons in this recipe are irresistible when they come out of the oven. Our Muffuletta Sandwich recipe is another recipe that reminds us of the wonderful cuisine of New Orleans.
Our tradition continues that on Ash Wednesday our Delis are preparing hot wonderful Fried Cod all day! Stop in and pick up this wonderful treat for a quick and easy meal for you and your family.
As we prepare for another huge weather system moving in, remember our Festival Express delivery team is just a click away, no matter the weather they are delivering groceries to your home or office!
