    After a couple failed attempts A-58 finally got this Christmas card through to me. Thanks to the stellar postal service in Chicago who decided to send the letter back a couple times, this was received well into 2017. While not really a postcard for the WW2F/FPS, A-58 wanted the included recipe posted. Since the described dish entailed encased meats, the Charcuterie fetishist in me was obliged to share it with the good Rogues of the WWII Forums.

    The full cover.

    And the message.

    And of course the Red Beans and Rice with Sausage recipe.

    Bumping this one as I think it might have been overlooked by some. Thanks Bobby/A-58!

    I've never made it myself, but I've eaten it a few times. I do make the broth part, but my input stops there.

    And the Creole seasoning you should use to get the authentic taste is Tony's.

    Yep, Bobby. Wife also makes some of the best jambalaya around. We also eat grits and shrimp grillades, especially Christmas Eve.

    I'll have to loan you my pastalaya recipe then. I usually make it for Christmas Day dinner or special occasions since it costs a bit more to make than the usual recipes.

    Dang, I'm getting a bit hungry now with all this talking about groceries and such.
