Since it's so cold here, I was thinking of comfort food. Stew? Soup? What? I'm going to go with some Zatarain's Gumbo, and put sausage in it. To do it up right, I'll make some cornbread. I make it using coarse ground cornmeal--my Mom always used that, and anything else doesn't taste good to me. I make it in my iron skillet that belonged to my Grandma. Somehow that makes it better. :)
I'm off next Tuesday, and since it's Fat Tuesday, I was thinking I might need to do some genuine New Orleans food, from scratch. I'm leaning towards jambalaya. Mmm!
Hey...Fat Tuesday and Super Tuesday are on the same day! Coincidence? I don't think so!
Holy moley. I just heard on the news that the high in Grand Forks, North Dakota was 13 below today. I lived there for 5 years, and sometimes I wonder how I managed to survive that kind of weather. Apparently I was younger and more resilient then, but I think I'd just implode if I had to deal with that kind of extreme weather now!
