Election Day

After suffering through the countless malicious TV commercials defaming each and every political candidate, we’ve finally made it to Election Day. I hope you got to the polls to cast your vote. I look forward to hearing the outcome of the election, as well as not hearing any more negative ads campaigns.

As I undoubtedly watch the news coverage tonight, I’ll be enjoying a big bowl of Jambalaya for dinner. This hot dish is the ideal one-pot meal on a chilly and rainy night like tonight. With chicken, shrimp, and andouille chicken sausage, this Creole dish offers a surprise in every bite. Only a little chopping and stirring, and 20 minutes of simmering yields a complete meal.
