Bring on the jambalaya!

Hi everybody, Josh The Pilot here! I think Mary Beth is starting a monthly habit of making me a bachelor for a week. Last month she had the Great Stack, and this month she has gone to Ohio for a much needed five day nephew-fix. Please congratulate Mary Beth on summoning up the courage to drive, all by herself, from Virginia to Ohio, despite the pouring rain all along her route. Carah The BFFE was supposed to go along, but had to cancel at the last minute. However, MB would not let that (or me) stop her from seeing her two favorite little guys.

I'll miss my bride, but this means I get to eat all the spicy foods I can't have when she's around. Yesterday I picked up some jambalaya mix at the grocery store, and I plan to eat it almost every day she's gone. Very few positive things resulted from my time in Louisiana, but I did learn about jambalaya.

Pass the onions!

Indeed a corageous woman. I hate driving with rain at night.

Some day, somehow Josh my man, I will have to instruct you into the wonders of http://www.funnybear.com/img/pozole.jpg" rel="nofollow">Pozole and http://www.oscarslapaz.com/images/BARBECUE%20GOAT.jpg" rel="nofollow">Birria. If you like spicy food, you'll like this.

We have a simmilar dish to Jambalaya, it's called http://baristanet.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/05/17/bohemiasoup_2.jpg" rel="nofollow">Caldo Michi. I do believe there's a connection between the level of spice in a regional cuisine, and the emotional intensity of that region's people —the spicier the food, the more passionate the people ;-)

...And yes, it's no wonder DIABETES is the #1 cause of death here in Mexico!
