Day 25

For day 25 (Thursday) I decided that it was Mardi Gras in July, so I made RED BEANS AND RICE!

Here are the winners of today's Freezer Game...
A nice half package of Andouille sausage and a frozen ham hock/pork shank.

I added red beans, onion, peppers, celery, garlic, bay leaf, water, cayenne and the above meat items and cooked it low and slow for hours until THIS resulted....
(the rice is hiding on the bottom of this bowl....I just skipped it for mine)

Luckily no one lost an eye with all the bead throwing that ensued!

I also made Beignets for dessert (with the Cafe Du Monde mix that Heather and Harry sent us!). Be sure to check out Salingers blog for details!

Laissez les bon temps roulez!


  1. Ooo...that looks delicious! AND you made homemade donuts for dessert? Your family eats like kings!

  2. Oh, and you're right...a career as a doctor is probally better than a chef...definatly more financially secure! And those cooking skills will DEFinaltly impress the ladies.

    When he's 35 and is allowed to date, of course.

  3. Oooh... will you come cook for me?
