Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya #SundaySupper

Before now the most I knew about Fat Tuesday was that the place to be was New Orleans and it included one heck of a party with great food and lots of booze!  I had never bothered to learn more about it but at the same time I knew that someday I wanted to be a part of it.  It looks like such a good time!  So, I did what any good blogger would do when needing to learn more about a subject and I googled it!  A very brief summary?  It’s the last hurrah before giving up that favorite food or drink before the lenten season.  I’m sure most if not all, of you already knew that but it was interesting to me so I thought I would share it with you.. just in case.  I’m not so great at giving up things, especially when it has to do with food and those who do have my utmost respect.

Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya - Yours And Mine Are Ours

This week for #SundaySupper we’re celebrating with Fat Sunday and I’m sharing with you a delicious traditional New Orleans Favorite!  Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya!

  1. Yum, yum, yum! Tammy, this Jambalaya looks so good!! I wish I could have a taste!!! sigh!

  2. What a perfect Fat Tuesday dinner!!! If my MIL wasn’t visiting, I’d give this one a shot for our celebration…or maybe I could make it very mild and just spice up my bowl :)

    • Thank you, Liz! I think you would definitely have to use a different type of sausage to make it mild. I haven’t cooked with andouille prior to this and I was surprised by how spicy it was. Of course we loved it but I could see how some might not.

  3. Your jambalaya looks amazing…and quite healthy in my book. I won’t be giving this up for lent!

  4. Haha, I never knew the reason for Mardi Gras, either…sort of sounds like a NYE resolution, hehe. I love jambalaya!

    • Yay Nichole! We’re kindred spirits :) I felt like such a moron when I realized I had no clue of the meaning of Mardi Gras but now I don’t feel so bad. After reading my post my husband said he never knew either so we’re not alone. LOL

  5. Hell yeah!
