We had a family baby shower this weekend and were trying to decide what to feed everyone after church. There were going to be 30 adults to feed. My son said he didn't want it to be a hassle so he bought a $100 worth of chopped beef at the famous TX BBQ place we have here. Well, during the suggesting of what to make I said "how about Jambalaya?" Well the mom to be wasn't really happy on that idea, but I thought I would make a batch for her to taste. It ended up that she didn't get a chance. It sat in my refridgerator for a couple of days. I decided to make some rice and add two pounds of shrimp and if they eat it, they eat it. OMG, they came inside to fix their plates and they went straight to the Jambalaya. I had throw away bowls to serve it in and they went on and on and on about how good it was. My greatest compliment came from my housekeeper who was born and raised in New Orleans. She said it was excellent. This is important for people just taking a taste. Everyone commented on this. When you take the first couple of bites you think it's not seasoned well. Then on that third bite it bites you back and don't know why but your tongue wakes up and your mind and tummy say OMG, this here is some mighty fine vittles. Then you can't get enough. I am so glad that it made enough for everyone to try it. Everyone did too because so much talk was going on about it and the delay to the taste buds. Thanks Colleen. Got anymore great recipes? I'm going look!!
