We've been lucky. And spoiled. (and reveling in it!)
Our weather this autumn has been glorious! It was almost 70 degrees on Monday and the daytime temperatures for the last month have been in the mid 60's. We've had little rain, very little wind, which we usually have a lot of in this area, and one sunny day after another.
Alas, all good things must come to an end.
It appears that winter has arrived. Today is dark and cloudy and windy. We need all the heaters on in the house and my fingers are freezing while I type this post.
The meteo shows a bit of sun tomorrow morning, then rain, rain and more rain until Saturday.
So, what to make for dinner?
Well, I have more of that no-knead bread dough ready to bake and I think some jambalaya would be perfect for a cold, windy night like tonight. I usually make Cajun-style jambalaya with chicken and smoked sausage (which replaces andouille, which I've never seen here). Tonight I'm going to try a "red" jambalaya, made with tomatoes, which is often called New Orleans Creole-style jambalaya. It is also made with onion, bell peppers, celery, ham, shrimp and the all-important cayenne pepper.
I'll post the recipe tomorrow.
