The first trip that I ever took as an adult was to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. It was something that I had always wanted to do. So, from high school when I started my first job as a babysitter, all through college and beyond, I saved every penny that I could. When I went, I didn’t want to do it on a budget, I wanted to do it the way that it should be done. I didn’t want money to be an object.
That’s why it took me so long to get the money together. When I finally arrived, it was everything that I had expected and so much more.
I stayed for the entire week in one of the nicest hotels, attended as many events as I could, and of course, took part in the traditional New Orleans cuisine. They had so many restaurants that served up some of the best foods.
One of my favorites was the jambalaya. I knew that I had to find out how to make that at home, and when I came across this recipe several years later on Group Recipes, I knew it was going to match up perfectly.
The first time I made it, I ate almost the whole pan myself!
