Football and cooler temps are all we need to call it
My husband was born and raised in Arkansas so he is not much into Cajun Cookin'
Our Son Jesse sure is!
One black cast iron pot is all you need.
Here in the deep south it's a tradition to start your marriage off right.
One black pot is always given at a bridal shower.
If you are lucky you may just score the entire set.
Jesse starts off by cutting up a large white onion.
Then a good helping of green onions and a clove of fresh garlic.
Boneless chicken breast.
One pack of sausage or andouille.
Back in the day....
Cajun cooking was just what you had on hand.
When times were hard and food was slim you made gumbo!
Seafood, pork,chicken,dove...pretty much whatever you could get your hands on at the time.
After you have all of your ingredients together just throw em in a pot of water.
We use a real roux cooked on the stove but to make it easier you can use this too.
It's just as good and super fast.
Stir a few spoonfulls in and bring it to a boil.
It will start to darken and fill your home with the best smell ever!
Ohhh my goodness this is soooo good!
We eat it over rice and have a loaf of french bread close by.
A potato salad is a must as well ;)
Cajun cooking at it's finest sha' !
