Tomorrow being Lundi Gras, I thought I’d make some jambalaya and cornbread for the office tomorrow. We have a nice kitchen, so why not?
I did the prep work tonight, and packed everything that doesn’t need refrigeration into a shopping bag, including utensils. The ‘holy trinity’, tomatoes, chicken, and garlic are in an insulated lunch bag, to which I’ll add the container of milk tomorrow, and the shrimp is in the freezer. The pot, cast-iron frying pan, and mixing bowl are on the counter. I’ll be doubling this recipe.
The only thing I’m disappointed about is the andouille. I usually use fresh, but you can’t get it here. (Pike Place Market is no longer convenient to the office.) I got some fully-cooked sausages from Trader Joe’s, which aren’t bad, but aren’t as hot as I’d like. Just as well, though. Most of the office doesn’t like things ‘too hot’.
