Cajun Cooking

Last night the Boy made jambalaya. Being from Louisiana most times that cooks he winds making some type of Cajun food. Normally it's red beans and rice or jambalaya. Although he has also made gumbo before. And I'm still waiting for the day when he makes me etouffee! But as I said, last night it was jambalaya

Normally he makes it he just adds spicy sausage and tasso as the meats. He used Manda brand sausage, which as far as I know, is only found in Louisiana. And tasso can be described as like Cajun type of sausage. We happened to have some leftover chicken, so that went in as well. That's the thing about Cajun food, you can pretty much throw whatever you want into the pot.

The picture I showed above is just my bowl (I'm sorry for the quality of the picture, my camera most not have been liking me when I was taking it). The picture below is the whole pot even after we've each served ourselves a bowl.
It's hard to tell, but there is A LOT of jambalaya in that pot. We both wound up having seconds, but even so there are a ridiculous amount of leftovers now in the fridge. Probably enough for two maybe even three more meals for each of us! I know what I'll be eating for dinner! And I'm planning on coming home on my lunch break tomorrow to have another bowl. Clearly he hasn't quite figured out how to cook for only two people. But it is definitely nice not having to worry about making dinner myself tonight!

P.S. I think the bottom 3 on Idol tonight will be Megan, Anoop and Scoot. And I think Anoop will go home. And I'm really hoping Megan doesn't!


  1. John is supposed to make me dinner soon, and I think I might ask for jambalaya!! It looks so yummy!!:)

  2. I HEART Cajun food. And thanks for the sweet comment before!!

    Hope you're having a fabulous week!

  3. My boyfriend LOVES jambalaya. He orders it almost everytime we go out to eat, I'm not as big of a fan of spicy food though.
