We love having a family movie night. One of our favorites to watch is Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. As adults, we love it for the Cajun food. The kids love it for the humor sprinkled throughout.
Mark spent 2 years in the southern states, enjoying all the food they have to offer. From the delicious – Jambalaya, Gumbo, Hush Puppies, and Beignets – to the odder – Squirrels and Frog Legs – he’s tried it all. I refuse to make the latter ones, but the rest I enjoy almost as much as him, and so do the kids. Enjoy this recipe for an easy jambalaya that’s not too spicy for kids.
