We celebrated Mardi Gras last night with some delicious homemade Jambalaya and cornbread. The girls and I all worked together in the kitchen while talking to my mom on the phone. It was so fun! This recipe is a new one for us, and it was delicious! I will link it down below. Peyton makes cornbread from a box, and it, too, was amazing. We use Fleischmann's Simply Homemade mix.
After dinner, we visited and talked about our Lenten plans and how we spend it is an individual decision between God and each of us. And then we had our version of King Cake. Peyton's Monkey Bread!
This is a photo from the archives. I plan to display this with some of our favorite Lenten books, but the box containing it evades me right now. I think I remember seeing it before the move. Or maybe after.
And this. Because Flynn will always be this age in my heart.
Have a cozy Wednesday, my friends!
Stay safe and warm.
We followed the recipe, except we added some extra rice, sausage, and broth. We also cut the cajun seasoning to one and a half tablespoons. It was the perfect amount of heat for us.
