I love crawfish boudin.  I have never seen nor heard of shrimp boudin.  Make your own you say, that sounds very interesting.

Making untraditional comfort food. What do you do when it gets cold outside lots of us will make a big old pot of gumbo to heat up Them Bones. We just got a instant pot that pressure Cooks so tonight we broker in.

I'm no Emerald but I do all right. Down here in the South we got wild boar that we get quite a bit of a nuisance to a lot of land owners down here can we grabbed a bag of that mixed up some dat cajun spice put that down in that pressure cooker about 35 minutes.

Then we diced up some onion added some rice pressure cook. about another 20 minutes. Now here come the secret we took some sweet peas and some carrots and cut up figs added that for another 10 minutes and I'm telling you what you got some eating there bam.

You got that Cajun spice with that Roux gravy so now you got that spicy side and that sweet side unique and different. Figs are more than fresh eating and canning now you can also use them to cook

For cold weather around my house we have gumbo or chili(deer if we have some) or tamales or arroz con mole.  It all depends on how much time we have.  Honestly I have being craving mole...

I have only ever had Turkey boudin from Thanksgiving leftovers.  If anyone has a shrimp or crawfish boudin recipe and wants to post it in the recipe section of this forum, I'd love to see it.   Then I will have to make it!!!

I did something similar, I subbed in smoked turkey legs for chicken.  It wasn't as bit a hit as I expected.  Back to chicken next time.

Southern living does have its advantages I enjoy walking out and pulling a fresh banana off my trees or fresh orange, grapefruit but also one of the advantages are what we call second crop fresh produce.

I just finished a head of cauliflower the other day and will be cook me up some broccoli tonight. Tomorrow we're going to have us some cooked cabbage fresh new potatoes and of course red bean and rice.

We have fresh produce year-round and usually we have fresh tomatoes part of these we grow in a greenhouse along with the herbs and spices this with the combination of fresh seafood I'm telling you what Dat eat healthy live long and don't forget about the greens.
