Today’s Menu: Leftovers-Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo

Egg White omelet w Buffalo Chili 002
Started my day off with an Egg Beater’s Egg White Omelet with my 3 Bean Buffalo Chili and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, oh and a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Love the flavor Frank’s adds to dishes. Got some laundry done and went to Kroger for Mom. For dinner tonight it was leftovers, I reheated the Shrimp and Andouile Sausage Pasta Gumbo.

 

 

 

 

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo 007

No way I was going to let the Gumbo leftovers go to waste! The Roux, Pasta, Shrimp, Andouille Sausage, and Spices combine to make some delicious leftovers. Just add the leftovers to a small sauce pan and reheated on medium low till heated through. It was every bit as good as it was the first time it was served. Love them leftovers! I’ve left the recipe and the original post for it below. For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Bread that I had baked earlier today.

 

 
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.

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.

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

Shrimp Andouille Sausage Jambalaya 009

 

 

 

It’s a beautiful Fall day out, sunny and a high in the 60’s. I got early this morning and went outside to see the Full Lunar Eclipse. It was perfect morning to see it, clear skies above. Many years ago, when I was working second shift, I was coming home in the wee hours and caught an Eclipse back then, so this morning was my second chance to see one. For dinner tonight it’s Leftovers, Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya.

 

 

 

Shrimp Andouille Sausage Jambalaya 005

Last night’s meal was just so delicious I wasn’t going to let the leftovers go to waste! So tonight I heated up last night’s meal of Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya. So here is the Recipe and Directions for Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya.
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! This makes one delicious Jambalaya Dish, even as a leftovermeal!. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Chocolate Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya and Baked California Sour 006

Heavy rain on and off all day and a high in the low 50’s. Got the cart out and did a little maintenance on it and cleaned it up a bit under the carport awning. Sure glad I invested in that, it gets me out and gets me to the lake if I want to go fishing, yard work and anything else I have to do outside. For dinner tonight it’s Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya and Baked California Sourdough Bread, one of my favorites!
