Randoms and a Recipe

This past weekend Curt and I hung out with Todd on Friday.  We went to eat at Edley's Barbecue in East Nashville (super cute area!) and then got some ice cream at a local place called the Pied Piper (also in East Nashville).  It was soo good!! Here is my outfit for the night...it was so cold out! I feel like Pinterest Told Me To.... :)

Saturday morning Curt and I cooked (okay Curt cooked) a tasty breakfast! We had sausage, eggs with tomato, pancakes, and mango! Yum!! Curt did an excellent job! Here is our smorgasbord!

I also read a magazine and found this...not the REAL Housewives but Housewives of Nashville. So excited to see what the rich do in our city, ha!

Starts February 24!!
Saturday night our friends got together and ate some Mexican food and then came back to our apartment to play games!

Josh seriously thinking about how to spell a word backwords, haha!
Tonight for dinner I tried a new recipe. I was in the mood for Jambalaya??? I have no idea why. I have never made it and haven't had it in a LONG time but I searched Pinterest, found a couple recipes that seemed pretty easy and combined them to make my own. It turned out to be great!!! A little too spicy, okay probably a lot too spicy but next time I make it I can totally fix that! Here is the recipe

Easy Jambalaya

1 green pepper
1 yellow pepepr
1 onion
2 cups cut up celery
2 tsp minced garlic
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can chicken broth
1 cup uncooked rice
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper (Next time totally doing a 1/4)
1 tsp tabasco sauce (Next time 1/2 tsp or less)
1 package turkey sausage
1 package cooked and deveined large shrimp

First saute the green pepper, yellow pepper, onion, garlic, and celery for about 7 minutes. Next add in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, uncooked rice, Cayenne pepper (add however much you want), and tabasco sauce (1 tsp was ALOT...). Stir together, cover, and simmer on medium heat for about 15 minutes. Stir halfway through. After 15 minutes the rice had soaked up all the juice so I added 2 cups of water. Then add the cut up turkey sausage and the shrimp. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until shrimp is pink. Stir frequently.  Let it sit about 5 minutes and serve it up.  It definitely feeds 4 adults!  So tasty, really easy, and not a lot of mess to clean up!
