Jambalaya

Last night we had jambalaya at PawPaw & ZeeZee's per Aunt Laura & Uncle Eric's request
We cook our jambalaya outside over an open fire.
PawPaw lighting the fire

Smoke
Catching fire

Now it's going
Time to put on the dutch oven

Put the sausage in...we like alot of sausage, can't you tell :)
Uncle Eric was our cook
Luke helping put some more branches on the fire
Push it in
Taking the sausage out
We found a piece of chicken that ZeeZee forgot to cut
Cooking the chicken, pork and green onions
Stop! Picture time
Aunt Sara got braces this week...She looks like she's in high school now!
Especially in this picture...her hair almost looks blonde like it was in high school :)
Maybe she wanted to look younger since Adam is so young :)

Miriam drinking red Fanta...a treat at PawPaw & ZeeZee's
of course, she has all of her jewelry on
Back to cooking - Uncle Eric stirring the chicken, pork, and onions

Another photo op - Kids swinging
Levi swinging

Still cooking
Adding the sausage back in
Stir it up!
Add the water and bring it to a boil
Boiling - add the rice
Bring it back to a boil, put the lid on, and pull the fire out

Let's eat!
The only thing that's missing is Smell-o-vision has Rachel Ray calls it.
However, my camera strap still smells like it...LOL!

My family does "Pearlu" which is Chicken & Rice in a big black cauldron outside over an open fire, at family reunions!

What about the Shelby's? We used to get invited :( Rob was off working at the other house so we could have come. Looks like you had a good time.
