Happy All Saints Day! We hope you had a safe Halloween and were able to survive Superstorm Sandy these past few days. Here in Pittsburgh we’ve only had a slow, cold, drizzle of rain. But we really don’t have the right to complain, there are a lot of folks who are worse off; we hope everyone stayed safe and sound!
Anyway, we’ve been relying a lot lately on our slow cooker since it cuts down on our dinner making time and also can make large amounts of food at a time (perfect for leftovers). One recipe we’ve been wanting to make for awhile now is a Jambalaya, luckily we found a recipe for one that cooks in the crock-pot! Hope you enjoy the Louisiana cuisine!
Slow Cooker Jambalaya
The closest thing we have to authentic Louisiana cooking is the Popeye’s opening up on campus.
