For those of you that may have missed Around the Kitchen Table a few weeks ago when I made my Tex-Mex Jambalaya  I finally got the blog post up!  It was truly delicious and fairly easy to make.
I hope you enjoy the recipe!

1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped red or green bell peppers
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup sliced okra (fresh or frozen)
1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
1 clove garlic chopped
2 cups white rice
4 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 tsp light chili powder
1 tsp cumin
Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste
olive oil as needed
1/2 lb chorizo
4 chicken thighs
4  jumbo raw shrimp in shell
2  petite lobster tails split  (optional)
1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

In a large skillet add olive oil, dredge chicken thighs in flour seasoned with sea salt and black pepper, then place chicken thighs into pan, saute on both sides for about 5 minutes on each side. 
While the chicken is browning add in chorizo and brown along with the chicken.
Remove chicken and chorizo from the pan and place on platter.  These items will be returned to the pan later in the process.
 If needed add a little more olive oil then the garlic, onions, peppers, and okra and saute for 2-3 minutes 
Add in rice and continue to saute for another few minutes
Add in tomatoes and corn and stir well, continue to cook for another 2 minutes.
Add chicken stock and spices, turn heat down to med low and allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes
After simmering stir mixture to make sure all of the ingredients are well blended, then add back the chicken thighs and chorizo.
At this time now add in your shrimp and lobster, cover and continue to simmer for 10-15 more minutes.

Make sure that the chicken is cooked fully and plate up this masterpiece family style with the rice as the base, placing all of the proteins carefully on the platter.   Sprinkle with fresh cilantro, serve and enjoy

Isn't it amazing what happens when you roast vegetables. What I mean is how incredibly sweet and "melt in the mouth" they become, even cauliflower, perhaps especially cauliflower. It's like eating vegetable candy. This is such an easy side dish, the roasted lemons become intensely lemony which compliments the sweetness of the cauliflower - happiness!

Roasted Cauliflower

1 head of cauliflower
1 lemon, quartered
3-4 cloves garlic - in their skins
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley


Heat the oven to 425 F

Break the cauliflower into florets.

Place the cauliflower, lemon and garlic on a baking tray, pour over a tablespoon or so of olive oil, sprinkle over the salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, dried oregano can cumin.

Mix well.

Place the baking tray in the oven and roast for 20 - 30 minutes until the cauliflower is tender but not mushy. Give the pan a shake a couple of times during the roasting period to ensure even cooking.

Remove form the oven, place on a serving platter, squeeze the garlic out of their skins and add to the platter, squeeze the roasted lemon juice over the cauliflower and sprinkle liberally with fresh parsley.

Join me and my co-host +Susan Serra this week for Around the Kitchen Table as I share one of my favorite Cajun style dishes Red Snapper with a Lime Margarita Sauce and a Fresh Fruit Salsa

Susan will be coming to us on location from the Sunny Florida Panhandle as I broadcast live from my kitchen in Kissimmee, Florida.   I can't believe we'll both be in the same state and still be separated by about 7 hours!

Stop by and cook along with me, or just save this show for later, but remember to Say Yes you will be attending to let us know you're enjoying the show and want to keep seeing them

2 ounces diced Pineapple
2 ounces diced Strawberries
2 ounces diced red onions
1 tablespoon of cilantro finely chopped  
pinch of sea salt

Mix Cajun seasoning with cracker meal and brown sugar

Remove fillets from the pan, and place in baking dish seasoned side up, and add a little water to the pan
Place baking dish in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes
Fruit Salsa

Lime Margarita Sauce
In a small saute pan, add 1 tbsp of butter and after it melts, add in brown sugar and blend well.
Add in lime juice and tequila, allow the alcohol in the tequila to burn off. Add in the last tbsp of butter and allow the mixture to thicken.
 Do not overheat the sauce will break,  wait until you are ready to serve the snapper before the final heating of the margarita sauce

+WordPress is becoming more of a PITA with every update :/  i've lost my ability to see any content in the visual editor, and its touch and go as to whether i can actually see content in the html editor.   

Forum help is not helpful either.  The stock answer seems to be "disable all plugins" or "ditch your themes".   This has routinely happened with EVERY SINGLE EFFING UPDATE recently!!!

FWIW this just wasted the better part of my day when all I wanted to do was 1) add 2 new pics to a (non-custom) gallery, and 2) add a couple of new listings of ingredients to an existing page of products :/
