I love the stuff, specially the way my French grandma cooked it.
When I was little I used to sit in a chair in the kitchen and watch her cook.
It was torture!
The first thing she did was thinly cut onions, celery, parsley and garlic.
Then in that heavy black dutch oven she would heat a little lard and start sauteeing them.
Adding them one at a time the aroma got my taste buds drooling.
This was not fast food; it took and hour or so before it was finally ready to eat.
As I sat there smelling all the wonderful aromas my tummy would start grumbling and I would think it was never gonna be ready.
In those days we waited til dinner time (noon meal to those who eat dinner in the evening) to eat.
That meant we had to wait for my mom to walk home from work on her lunch hour;
then we sat down together and ate.
Believe me it was really hard on a little toddler to smell all that good food and have to WAIT!
Waiting is not a three or four year olds best quality.
It sure was wonderful when I finally got to eat it.
I'd love to have a plate full f her jambalaya now.
