O.k., I should have posted this last week, but for those of you who are often winging dinner like me – maybe this will help!
I like to have themed dinners and celebrate the small holidays. I have never been to actual Mardi Gras, but my husband loves Cajun food (RIP our favorite Joe’s OK Bayou that went out of business) and it can be easy for a quick week night meal.
Zatarain’s and Tony Cachere’s make these rice mixes and you can add chicken or sausage to them. We also use Cajun spice on everything. We love it on our green vegetables, especially.
So, Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday and our Tuesdays are really busy. In fact, this Tuesday, one son won’t be home until 8:30. I will probably pack his dinner.
I’m doing jambalaya and turkey sausage, rolls, and a green vegetable.
For dessert, I’m faking a king cake with cinnamon rolls and dying the icing yellow, green, and purple. There will be no baby inside.
What do you think? Would your family eat this meal?
