Chicken Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya!
A Note from The Future: This blog entry was written in 2009, almost 2 years before it played a big role in our tornado recovery experience. To read about that, click here!
I LOVE jambalaya! Actually, ever since a trip to New Orleans back in 2005, I have a particular affection for most cajun and creole food in general. It's always full of flavor, and very, VERY satisfying!
This recipe makes a ton of Chicken Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya. With flavoring the stock as I do, and with all of the chopping involved, it is a bit more labor intensive than the average dinner recipe. I like making a huge batch of this on a weekend, then pretty much living on it for a week or two - it makes GREAT leftovers! It freezes fairly well, but never lasts long enough to make it to the freezer.

| On the afternoon of May 22, 2011, North Minneapolis was devastated by a tornado. Twisted recounts the Porters' first 11 months, post disaster. Rebuilding their house, working around the challenges presented by inadequate insurance coverage. Frustration at repeated bouts of incompetence and greed from their city officials. Dealing with issues such as loss of control, logistics, change, and over-stimulation, as an autistic woman.
Subjects covered include: Opportunistic "Vultures", gawkers, new friendships, a bizarre gingerbread house, unique decisions made with the rebuild - including an internet-famous kitchen backsplash, "Tornado Claus", contractor drama, water balloons, DIY design and work, music, sensory overload, and details on how to cook jambalaya for almost 300 people, in the parking lot of a funeral home... should you ever find yourself in the position to do so.
