Jambalaya Party

We’ve been wanting to have these folks over for a while; we finally found a weekend when we could do it. Herb and Dianne; Jay and Mary Ann, and John and Karen joined us for dinner and a game of Mexican Train dominoes (which we learned at Dianne and Herb’s).

Jambalaya is one of the first recipes I made when I started cooking. It’s a crowd pleaser and fairly easy to prepare. If you are looking for something easy to start cooking; this is as good a place as any. It came from Recipezar and is now on food.com. My version is here.

Ingredients. That’s andouille sausage

Second set of ingredients ready for the pan. First set is the chicken

Andouille, and the holy trinity of cajun cooking  (onion, celery, and bell pepper) getting a sauté.

 You can see how easy this recipe is. You can prep everything ahead of time, leaving you time to have a clean kitchen when company comes over.

Hors d’ oeuvres.

Karen brought an apple cake with salted caramel topping

Dianne’s cornbread, jambalaya, and Mary Ann’s salad. A great dinner

 I suck at people pictures. The only semi-usable one is this of Jay, Dianne, and Herb

Jay, Dianne, and Herb

 John won at dominoes, there may be a rematch in the future.
