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

 

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo 007

 

 

Beautiful day out today, started off cloudy but the sun came out and about 52 degrees. Went to Meijer early this morning, they had some good sales going on. I loaded up on Jennie – O Turkey Products and Seafood. I also grabbed a Tide Liquid Detergent for Mom and noticed something, the amount of Detergent in the bottle. It used to contain 100 ounces, now it’s 92 ounces. Same bottle size, same price, but less for your money! Just another Product disappearing act. For dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo w/ Cornbread Ears.

I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base. It uses Pasta instead of Rice. Very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. I just boiled the stock that was in the packet,sliced Johnsonville Andouille Sausage and a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce for 10-15 minutes. Then I added Extra Large Shrimp and simmered another 5-10 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 easily prepared hearty and delicious dish.

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 few Honeycrisp Apple Slices and a Dole Mini Banana.
