Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo w/ Wheat Bread

 

 

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo 008
We had avoided the freezing rain they had predicted but about 8:00 this morning it started getting foggy and the fog mist started freezing on the roads. Did’t last long though, we ended up getting some rain later. Not having a lot of luck with my car. Just got it back from a small hose leak and now there’s a leak on the other side of the engine, guess it happens when the car has well over 140,000 miles on it. I need a new car or good used one, and SUV type so I can get my wheelchair in and out of the car easily by myself. But it costs money, which is tough to save when your on a fixed income. Anyway I had planned a new Chicken Dish for dinner but I failed to lay the Chicken out of the freezer to thaw in the fridge overnight. Good job Mark! But no problem because I have some incredible leftovers to reheat! Tonight it’s Leftover Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo w/ Wheat Bread.

 

 

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo 003

This is the post from last night’s dinner on how to prepare this dish. To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, Johnsonville 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 leftover for my dinner tonight! I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Frozen Greek Yogurt.

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.

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

 

 

 

Grandma Mauds Black Bean Rice 012
A beautiful crisp and sunny Fall morning and day here today! Spent the morning at the hospital to be with the family of my best friend. He underwent a Vascular Aneurysm surgery. A very risky surgery but he came through it in flying colors!! In fact the surgeon said it was perhaps the smoothest surgery of that type he ever did. So glad he’s like a brother to me. Came home and did a load of laundry and relaxed then. For dinner tonight it was leftover city for me! I reheated the Shrimp and Andouille Sausage w/ Grandma Maud’s Premium Black Beans and Rice.

 

 

 

 

 

It was a long morning at the hospital so thank goodness I some delicious leftover Shrimp and Andouille Sausage w/ Grandma Maud’s Premium Black Beans and Rice to reheat. I just put the leftovers in a sauce pan and reheated it on medium low. I left the original post below on how to make this dish.

 

 

 

Grandma Mauds Black Bean Rice 004

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! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya

 

 

Zatarains Jambalaya w Shrimp Andouie 011

As I finished a light Breakfast this morning, I did the dishes and began my morning workout. I always have the TV on when I’m exercising to make the time go quicker, big mistake this morning! I have the Cooking Channel on and the first show on is all about Donuts, Nooooo! I haven’t had many Donuts since I was diagnosed with Diabetes 2 several years ago. Back in the day now I could do a whole lot of damage to a dozen Donuts! But I avoid them now until today! Thank you Cooking Channel!!! Rather than fight it I went out and got a dozen for Mom and Dad and myself from Dunkin Donuts. Sticker Shock, Now it’s been a real long time since I purchased a dozen Donuts so I was amazed that a dozen costs $8.99 a dozen! I’m glad I don’t eat them anymore for that price. $8.99 for fried dough! Oh well I had 1 plain and 1 chocolate frosted and yearning was filled. Thanks again Cooking Channel! For dinner tonight it’s leftovers. I reheated the Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya.

 

 

 

Zatarains Jambalaya w Shrimp Andouie 001
You have to love leftovers, perhaps the easiest meal of all to prepare. When I prepared it I used Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Jambalaya Mix (Reduced Sodium) for my base for the Jambalaya. I use Zatarain’s Products whenever I can, love the flavor and seasoning of all their products. To prepare it I just followed the easy instructions on the box. Mixed 2 1/2 cups of Water and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and brought it to a boil. Added the Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix and my Johnsonville Andouille Smoked Sausage, I had sliced the Sausage into smaller pieces before adding. Returned it to a boil, and then reduced the heat to low. Covered and simmered for about 25 minutes till most of the moisture had been absorbed. With 10 minutes left I added my (Kroger Brand) Jumbo Shrimp, till fully cooked and turned pink. Removed it from the heat and let it rest for about 5 minutes before I served it. The Andouille Sausage and Jumbo Shrimp make a fantastic pairing with the Jambalaya Mix! I added a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to the mix also, nothing like a little heat to kick things up! The meal was good the second time around as it was the first! The Rice and all the Meat warmed up perfectly. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. This makes one delicious Jambalaya Dish. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

It’s been a dreary and humid day out today. Stopped at Kroger this morning and picked up a couple of items for dinner tonight and then stopped the Union Center Farmer’s Market. First time I’ve been over there in a couple of years, it’s almost doubled in size since I was there last. Returned home and just did some odds and ends around the house. For my dinner I prepared Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers: Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya

 

 

Shrimp Andouille Sausage Jambalaya 009
Warm and muggy out today, a lot of heavy rain over night. I read an article in the paper that was talking about how far behind the farmers were on their planting due to the extended Winter and wet Spring we’ve been having. Hope the delay doesn’t cause the prices to rise anymore than what they are. Spent the late afternoon running Mom and Dad to the doctor for their checkups. After all the running around I wanted something easy to prepare for dinner, so what better than the microwave and leftovers! I heated up the leftovers from last night’s dinner, Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya.

 

 

 
Heated it up and it was just as delicious as the first time! I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. Then for dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt. Below is the directions on how I made the Jambalaya yesterday.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Andouille Sausage JambalayaShrimp Andouille Sausage Jambalaya 009

 

 
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there! Heavy rain this morning, turned to a one sunny and muggy day out there. I had planned on grilling Steaks for Mom and Dad but they had made plans to meet some friends for dinner, so solo dinner again. For my dinner I prepared Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya.

 

 

 

Shrimp Andouille Sausage Jambalaya 005
I used Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Jambalaya Mix (Reduced Sodium) for my base for the Jambalaya. I use Zatarain’s Products whenever I can, love the flavor and seasoning of all their products. To prepare it I just followed the easy instructions on the box. Mixed 2 1/2 cups of Water and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and brought it to a boil. Added the Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix and my Johnsonville Andouille Smoked Sausage, I had sliced the Sausage into smaller pieces before adding. Returned it to a boil, and then reduced the heat to low. Covered and simmered for about 25 minutes till most of the moisture had been absorbed. With 10 minutes left I added my (Kroger Brand) Jumbo Shrimp, till fully cooked and turned pink. Removed it from the heat and let it rest for about 5 minutes before I served it. The Andouille Sausage and Jumbo Shrimp make a fantastic pairing with the Jambalaya Mix! I added a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to the mix also, nothing like a little heat to liven things up! This makes one delicious Jambalaya Dish. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
