• Slow Cooker Jambalaya

    When you have a house full of people and no motivation to cook, this is your dish.  A bit of chopping, throw in a few spices and you’re done!  Have some hot rice close by and some bowls and your guests can serve themselves.  This is my go-to dish when my husband has a bunch of his friends over.  If you don’t use andouille sausage, you’ll need the cayenne pepper, but andouille is spicy enough for us, so I leave it out.  I’ve also found it tastes best when cooked on low.
