cajun vocabulary lesson

gradoux

pronounced, grah-doo, the term describes the crusty, almost burnt, part of a jambalaya that is stuck to the bottom of the giant cast iron pot that the jambalaya is cooked in. i personally do not prefer to eat the gradoux, but i have many many family members that do :)

with that said, i'm going to go and enjoy a large bowl of jambalaya (the non burnt part of the pot) and a little bit of sun before i go out and run some errands.

what are you guys doing this gorgeous spring monday?


bon appetit ma chere!
