The other day I mentioned I was going to make Jambalaya for dinner. My friend Jen emailed and said she had never heard of it before. So, I thought I would share a picture and a link if you would like more information about it's origins.
Even though I start with a box, I still consider it "homemade". The box consists of the rice and spices ... I add the meat ... hamburger, smoked sausage and shrimp. I also add another box of black beans and rice. It just gives it a little more "umpph". And I also add a can of Fire Roasted tomatos.
Follow the directions and it cooks all together. Jambalaya is a one bowl rice dish ... it's yummy ... and hearty. It can also be spicy. That's why we do not have it very often because it's a bit too spicy for Griffin.
Mmmmmmmm ... yummy! The version I make is probably more of the creole style because I make mine with tomatos. There is also a cajun style that's more brown than red. Make sure to click on this link to find out more if you are interested.
And dinner is served ... it is so, so good!!
