A quick and easy cajun meal ;)

During the week, schedules are hectic and life is just crazy.  With three kids at home and both my husband and I in law enforcement, things are never guaranteed to be scheduled.  We do our best to have a decent meal at dinner time.  I have recently come across these awesome products that make a “home cooked meal” a weekday possibility!

The Rhodes dinner rolls are favorites in my house and have been a favorite of mine ever since I was a kid.  I take them from the freezer in the morning and prepare them according to the package.  When I get home in the evening, they have risen and are ready to be baked.  I just add a couple of pats of Lite Butter to the top and bake as directed.

The Blue Runner products are awesome!  The jambalaya mix is definitely one of the best premade mixes.  I just added some baked chicken breasts (baked over the weekend prior) and some smoked sausage.  The red beans are a must, another favorite from childhood.  I still prefer  freshly cooked red beans, but this is as close as I am going to get.  I cook a big pot of red beans every so often and then freeze it in little containers.  Sadly the last of the beans have been used :(…lol  When using Blue Runner beans I add in half of an onion and some smoked sausage.

By Gracie’s request, I grilled some thinly sliced center cut pork chops with cajun seasonings on the George Foreman grill.  Now, who says we can’t do it all on a weeknight?

This meal defnitely made one little girl happy and full!

Bon Appetite!

  1. Omigawd, you’re killing me here! Living in the Middle East, I don’t have access to such things anymore. When I do find the imported American products I must pay double or even triple the cost back home in the US. This meal looks “fit to eat” as my Grandmother used to say! By the way, thanks for stopping by and liking my blog!

  2. I must agree and also say this is delicious looking! And I must say, Gracie is beautiful! Gotta love that smile!

    And when it comes to canned food, I must admit that I thoroughly enjoy Armour Canned Chili. Yup. My husband has introduced it to me and it truly tastes really close to my dad’s home made chili. But now I want to try those rolls!
