Jambalaya & Baked Banana French Toast
Charla taught me how to make Jambalaya based on her recipe (which I’m sure she adapted from somewhere but I'm still giving her all the kudos :).
2 Tb. olive oil
8 oz. sausage (I usually get turkey andouille)
~ 8 oz. chicken, cooked
1 large onion
3-5 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. parsley, dried or fresh
1 1/2 c. boiling chicken stock
1 1/2 c. white rice
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. hot sauce
1 14 oz. can tomatoes
1 green bell pepper
2 Tb. white wine
Also, the basics of doing this meal project, such as cooking chicken and sausage was really useful. I also learned how to appropriately cut vegetables and chicken and it’s these basic cooking skills that are really necessary to learn.
As always I had a fun time and the food turned out really delicious! Success! Next time I would cut down the quantity being made since Ansell and I ate jambalaya basically everyday for 5 days straight.
Baked Banana French Toast
|Before being baked|
I am a huge breakfast fan and my latent cooking skills always shine when I do breakfast. I found this amazing recipe from Bakerella’s awesome website and couldn’t wait to try it! I wasn’t disappointed!
This is a fairly simple breakfast food that has a few things that make it a favorite:
* It is in a contained baking tray which makes it
o -Easy cooking and cleaning
o -Reduces possible burning
o -All pieces were warm when we ate since it was all cooked together
|After the oven time|
*It involves bananas. I love bananas baked in breakfast stuff.
*It needs to chill so it’s perfect for making the night before.
*Look how photogenic it is!
This is such a winner! Will definitely make it again!
