This Crescent City-inspired repast could be intimidating to seasoned cooks: jambalaya, gumbo, spicy Cajun vegetables, red beans and rice and cornbread for starters. However, Tiff IS a New Orleans resident after all and she arrived with strict instructions from the man in her life. When we arrived, the jambalaya was ready, the gumbo was simmering, the crab boil was rolling and a spinach salad was being tossed.
I appreciate any chance at some Cajun grub, so how grateful was I to dig into that terrific meal? It didn't even come back to bite me and derail the 5k the next day. While I'm speaking of gratitude, I'm also thankful for the take-home package of NOLA love including Tony Chachere's creole seasoning, gumbo file, spices with real sassafras, and boudin and andouille sausage from Tiffany. Can't wait to use it all!
In the meantime, thank you Kiko and Tiff aka Lucy and Ethel. Your Cajun was killer!
