Had a light Breakfast this morning and then on to my morning workout. Another beautiful Fall Day
out again. I was all caught up on everything so I had the cart out early riding around. About noon went over to see dad at the rehab center, he's doing so much better and eager to come home. He'll be released Friday! For dinner tonight a personal comfort food for me. I prepared Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo with Baked Rustic French Bread.
I have a lot of favorite meals but this one is near or at the top, love the combo of Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage. To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp (that I precooked before adding to the Gumbo), and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.
The Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix uses Pasta instead of Rice. Very easy to prepare, takes
