A little chilly out there this morning, about 22 degrees! It was supposed to warm up to above 50 degrees but I don’t think it ever reached 50 with cool breeze blowing all day. Went to walmart I needed a new Hair Trimmer, the old one finally died after about 15 years. Picked a small Jennie – O Turkey, about 1.79 lbs, for easter that I’ll prepare for Easter. For dinner tonight, a Jennie – O Fully Cooked Hardwood Smoked Turkey Kielbasa along with Red Beans and Rice.

I can only find the Jennie – O Fully Cooked Hardwood Smoked Turkey Kielbasa at Target. So last time i was there I picked up a couple of packages of it. To start I prepared the Red Beans and Rice. I used the Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice. Easy way to have some excellent Red Beans and Rice, plus it’s Reduced Sodium. If you love Red Beans and Rice you’ll love this! To prepare; In a 2 quart saucepan, combine 2 3/4 cups water, 2 tablespoons olive oil or margarine and Zatarain’s Black Beans and Rice. Stir well and bring to boil. Stir, reduce heat, cover and simmer over Low heat for 25 minutes. As the Red Beans and Rice is cooking I cut the Turkey Kiebasa in ½-inch slices. With about 12 minutes of cooking time left for the Beans and Rice I added it the mix. Continued cooking another 13 minutes or so and served. One good combination, Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice and the Jennie – O Fully Cooked Hardwood Smoked Turkey Kielbasa. The flavor of Kiebasa paired with red beans and Rice is perfect, I did add a couple of shakes or so of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
