Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo with Rice w/ Cornbread Ears

 

Zatarains Gumbo and Rice 002

 

Oh another bout of snow and another bout of the Phantom Pains throughout the night, I’d rather deal with the snow instead of Phantom Pains! We got another 2-3 inches over the night, this one was a powdery snow unlike the last one which was a wet and heavier snow. Dealt with the phantom pains throughout the night again last night, not real bad ones just enough to annoy me! One of the neighbors had brought my morning paper up and laid it by the door for me, thank you! Brewed a cup of hot Green Tea, Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I had some Turkey Chili leftover from dinner the other night and made a Chili and Cheese Omlett with some toast for breakfast, and a good start to the day! For dinner tonight it was Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo with Rice w/ Cornbread Ears.

 

Zatarains Gumbo and Rice 001

 

I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix with Rice for the Gumbo base. I think I had used this once before. Very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. I just boiled the stock that was in the packet, Jalapeno Slices, sliced Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage, and a few shakes of the Frank’s Red Hot Sauce for 15 minutes. Then I added the Extra Large Shrimp and simmered another 10 minutes. Said and done the Gumbo is ready! It turned out fantastic! Nice flavor and plenty of Rice, makes a nice hearty dinner. I also made some Cornbread Ears. It’s normal baked Cornbread but in a cast iron baking mold in the shape of Ears of Corn. I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding.

Gumbo is a savory Cajun or Creole stew served with or over rice. Just add one pound of seafood (shrimp, crabs, or crawfish) or meat (chicken and sausage are very popular) for nine cups of delicious gumbo in about 30 minutes with one pot preparation.

 

Directions
Easy Stove Top: Gumbo can be prepared with your choice of 1 pound of chicken (pre-cooked), smoked sausage or seafood cut into bite-size pieces. 1. In a 3 quart saucepan, combine 6 cups water, meat and Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix. Stir and bring to a boil. 2. Stir, reduce heat, cover and simmer over Low heat for 25 minutes. For Seafood Gumbo: Combine 6 cups water and Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix, bring to a boil. Add seafood after 10 minutes of cooking time, return to boil and cook 15 minutes.

Microwave: 1. In a 3 quart microwave-safe bowl, combine 6 cups of cold water and Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix. 2. For Chicken or Sausage Gumbo: Add 1 pound meat, cover and cook on High for 30 minutes (cook time may differ on the power of the microwave oven.), stirring occasionally. For Seafood Gumbo: Cover and cook on High for 20 minutes (cook time may differ on the power of the microwave oven.). 3. Let stand covered for 5 minutes before serving. Serving Suggestions: Sausage and chicken make an excellent, popular gumbo. Seafood gumbo is best with shrimp, oysters and crab. Okra, corn or celery make excellent vegetable additions.
