Yesterday the most amazing thing happened. I was at work thinking about how nice it would be to have boudin for lunch. Being that I am in the “South”, I do not have access to this yummy dish. But wait!! I was curious to see if there was a store here in Charleston that possibly sold Louisiana products. I Googled “boudin in Charleston?” and wah la! I found a store that is only 5 minutes from my apartment called Cherie’s Specialty Meats and Fine Coffee.They sell everything that I’ve been craving! They have Savorie’s Roux, Tony’s, Zapp’s chips, Boudin, crawfish tails, Cajun Power, Community Coffee….and a whole bunch of other stuff that I can’t remember. On my way home from work I stopped at this fantastic little store and bought Zapp’s, boudin, and some roux. =)
Now that I had my very own jar of roux I had to figure out what I wanted to make. Gumbo was the first thing that came to mind, but after talking to my aunt and realizing that would take hours I settled on Jambalaya. I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but wow! The Jambalaya came out awesome! Keith loved it and said that he could eat it everyday! =) I am very happy to have found Cherie’s and cannot wait to make my next Cajun dish. Who would have thought that being domesticated would be so much fun?
