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

 

 

Zatarain's Gumbo Pasta Shrimp Sausage 008
It was one foggy morning out this morning! Looking out the window you could barely see our next door neighbor’s house. Went to Kroger this morning as the fog was breaking to pick up some items for tonight’s dinner and back home. Was able to get some yard work done before it got to hot and humid. It’s a pain trying to get stuff done in a wheelchair or motorized cart, but you have to do what you have to do to get things done. Then later I went and picked my Dad’s Birthday Cake up for his Birthday party tomorrow at the rehab center. He’ll be 93! I was watching a Cooking Show last night and they were making Gumbo and it looked too good! So for dinner tonight I made some Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo w/ Cornbread Ears.

I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base. First time used this with the Pasta instead of Rice. 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 Extra Large Shrimp and simmered another 10 minutes. Said and done the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turned out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Pasta, makes one nice hearty and delicious 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 Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
