Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Andouille Sausage w/ Grandma Maud’s Premium Black Beans and Rice and Cornbread

Grandma Mauds Black Bean Rice 012

It’s been a cool and cloudy day out today. I took Mom and Dad over to a med Center Store, dad needed a new walker and a couple of items and back home. Been sort of a long day. My best friend, who’s more like a brother to me, is awaiting the results of blood work. It looks as though he may have Cancer. I’m hoping and praying for the best, we’ve been through a lot together. For dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp and Andouille Sausage w/ Grandma Maud’s Premium Black Beans and Rice and Cornbread.

Shrimp, Andouille Sausage, and Red Beans and Rice – You know it has to be one of those lip smacking delicious dishes! I had a bag of Grandma Maud’s Premium Black Beans and Rice Bean Meal in the pantry and as I was looking around for something for dinner that just sounded right! I also used a bag of Kroger Jumbo Shrimp and Johnsonville Andouille Sausage. I started by slicing the Andouille Sausage into 1″ slices. Then in a medium skillet I cooked the Sausage till it was browned on both sides and sat aside till a bit later. As my Sausage was getting done I boiled some water for my Shrimp. I didn’t boil the Shrimp until it was time to add to the Black Beans and Rice.

To prepare the Black Beans and Rice just boil your water, add your mix, boil and simmer for about 30 minutes and your done, stirring often. After 20 minutes of cook time I added the Andouille Sausage, then after 25 minutes of cook time I added my Shrimp. Oh the aroma, that alone makes your mouth water! To serve it I used a bowl, sprinkled some Cilantro on it and a few shakes of the Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Then Enjoy! So, So, Good. I love the Grandma Products, so easily prepared and just flat-out delicious. Not to mention the addition of the Shrimp and Sausage. I also made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.
