I haven’t made any resolutions this year, enjoying being newly retired and feeling like a bum with income. Doug heard that phrase recently from another retired guy....it fits the bill :-).I have some reading goals, maybe try the family history research again and hoping we can travel more.
This year I’d like to hook up with more online cooking events so I’ll start by sharing a Jambalaya for I Heart Cooking Club. I saw a Jamie Oliver recipe for it and just adapted it to our tastes.
This is a variation of a Jamie Oliver recipe I found online HERE.
My version is to cook sausage and then set aside. Add chicken thighs and cook about 5 minutes each side, then remove. Now sauté onion, garlic, bell pepper until softened. Tip in a cup and a half of long grain rice and stir through. Add a little more than 3 cups of chicken broth and stir. Add a can of chopped tomatoes with the juice. Nestle the sausage and chicken into the rice mixture.
Cover your Dutch oven and simmer on a low heat, stirring occasionally so the rice doesn’t stick. After 15 minutes toss some cut okra in the pot. Oh, I also used oregano, 2 bay leaves, smoked paprika & Old Bay.
