I made a deep dish pizza the other night that was fantastic. A nice little taste of Chicago, for sure.

That's one thing that I've never been able to make well. Fortunatley, there is a Giordanno's a few miles from my house.

Between Giordano's and Lou Malnati's, I don't ever need to eat any other pizza. Leona's used to be edible, but their pizza sucks now.

I cooked a couple of rocks in the microwave this afternoon. Now I just gotta find some dumb redneck to sell them to.

I love cooking.

It's going to taste awesome unless you put in a wrong ingredient or too little/much of something. The only question is consistency, i.e., will you be eating it with a fork, spoon, or straw.

Yo, IR, baby, I can tell you what you'd find in Humbolt, and I can assure you they ain't looking for rocks!

This site may save your life. Or it could knock a couple of years off of it. Either way, it's going to get better.

I do prefer Giordno's, but the stuff I make is close enough for a lot less money.

This is the recipe for the best Jambalaya you will ever eat:



WHAT YOU NEED

olive oil
garlic
cajun spice mix
onion
green pepper
red pepper
celery
frozen okra..if you want it but don't have to
1 can of plum tomatoes

2 cans red kidney beans or more if you want this to stretch and feed more people or have more servings
brown rice

ground turkey
italian sausage
(COOK SAUSAGE BEFORE THROWING IN THE POT!!)

If you want....a few peices of chicken breast cooked ...can cook first in microwave (You could skip the chicken if you don't feel like bothering with it)

sometimes shrimp (If you want)

WHAT TO DO
1. cut up peppers and onions and garlic and celery..saute in olive oil for 5 - 7 min or until they are soft
2. sprinkle a generous amount of cajun seasoning ... you can always add more later while cooking if needed
3. add ground turkey and brown
4. add can of plum tomatoes
5. cut up cooked sausage and add to the pot
6. cut up cooked chicken and add to the pot (if you decided to use the chicken)
7. add okra if using it ( you can add the frozen okra right in)
8. add kidney beans
9. cook on a low temp for about 40 min...I am not sure how long I cook it...need to watch it and taste

10. In meantime cook rice....read instructions on package

Looks good. I'd give it a try it with Andouille instead of Italian sausage next time... unless you're a puss when it comes to spicy food.
