Feb 02 - It's Fat Tuesday -- the last day of Mardi Gras!!! How did Mardi Gras happen so fast and I made no plans to celebrate!! We had to do something!!
Last year we had a little Mardi Gras celebration and Walt prepared Jambalaya! This year I decided to make Chicken Gumbo for the first time! Little did I realize it would be an All Day Project!! First I had to find a recipe I thought we could actually prepare! Settled on Paula Deen's recipe for Chicken Sausage Gumbo. Then we went to WinCo and bought all the ingredients.
Ken chopped all the vegetables while I cooked the chicken breast and sausage. We put it all together and cooked and stirred and cooked and stirred for several hours. Just before serving we added half a pound of cooked shrimp!
It was a quite Mardi Gras celebration, just the two of us, but we really enjoyed our Chicken Sausage Gumbo served over rice!! However, next time we will probably just buy a couple of cans of Campbell's Chicken Gumbo!! HA HA
