Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo  w Cornbread Ears 008

Not much going on today. I had to take the car to the shop, needed new brakes. I got lucky though, only the front pads and rotors. Could have been worse I guess. Ran some virus checks and deleted some old files on the computer for most of the afternoon. For dinner tonight Leftovers! Reheated the Leftovers from last night’s dinner, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo.

 

 
No way I was going to let this leftover go to waste! This is one of my favorite dishes. It’s got Pasta, Shrimp, Smoked Turkey Sausage, and incredible flavor. As far as reheating it I just put the leftovers in a small sauce pan and reheated it on medium low, till heated through. The dish is every bit as good the second time around! Added a few shakes of the Frank’s Red Hot Sauce for a little heat. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. Below I’ve posted last night’s description of dinner that includes how to prepare the dish and the ingredients. Love those leftovers! For dessert later a SO Delicious Dairy Free Minis Vanilla Sandwiches.

 

 

Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo  w Cornbread Ears 003
I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base. 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 5 minutes. Said and done the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turned out fantastic! To serve I added a couple, well a few, shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce. Nice flavor, a little heat from the Hot Sauce, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Pasta, makes one nice hearty and delicious dinner.

a juggler of sorts, i am. my mind could explode of thoughts, at times. i don't have much talent in writing them beautifully but i can still write, if not for artistic purposes, then just so that i won't forget.
