Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo w/ Sour Dough Mini Boule

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo 005
A fairly mild morning compared to what we’ve been having, about 26 with no wind. Warming up to rain they say, with freezing rain overnight. Did some house cleaning and a load of laundry for Mom while she was at Church. Settled in to watch the NFL Playoffs for the afternoon. For dinner tonight a real favorite of mine, Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo w/ Sour Dough Mini Boule.

 
To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, JohnsonvillShrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo 003e Andouille Sausage, and a bag of Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp. The Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix uses Pasta instead of Rice. Very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, sliced the Johnsonville Andouille Sausage into bite size pieces and added them to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce for 10-15 minutes. Then I added Extra Large Shrimp and simmered another 3-6 minutes. And 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. Enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too!

 

Waffle Bowl Sundae 003
I also baked the remaining Sour Dough Mini Boule to go with the Gumbo. For dessert later Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream in a Waffle Bowl topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Hot Fudge Chocolate Topping. Came across the Keebler Waffle Bowls at Kroger the other day. They’re Waffle Cones shaped into a bowl, you can eat the bowl as your eating the Ice Cream, love these!
