This simple, yet quite sophisticated potato salad is one of Delia’s creations, and as I trust her ability I didn’t actually test this recipe before I made it for a dinner party; I just knew it would be nice. And of course it was. One can always trust Delia.
The only change I made was to cut down a bit on the shallots, as chopping onions really makes me cry. I think I gave up after having chopped eight shallots for double the amount of potatoes below.

At times I get the most peculiar cravings. I guess it ties in with my way of eating; regardless of what it is I eat for pleasure, not just fuel. And most of the time my cravings are a combination of things my body needs and my favourite foods. Typical cravings are usually something with avocado, anything with burrata and sometimes proper comfort food. Often cheese of some kind, and sometimes fish.
One beautiful summer’s day in Norfolk my body screamed for barbecued chicken. The sticky, charred kind. Maybe I needed protein but whenever I crave something fairly healthy I always try to give my body what it wants.
As we were in Norfolk and had access to a barbecue it was also much easier to make this happen, than if we’d been in London, so I went all in. I threw together a homemade barbecue sauce and marinated the…

Today’s Menu: Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread
For Breakfast on this morning I Fried 3 Fresh Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, as always! Mostly sunny and a high of 93 degrees. But with the high humidity the heat index makes it feel like 98-100 degrees. I got some yard work done early before it was too hot. Went to Kroger for Mom later to pick up a prescription. So for Dinner tonight I’m preparing Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.
To prepare it; I first prepared the…

I wanted to check where you could easily buy pork lard or if it is something you might have a hard time finding. You know that I love finding ingredients that I think must be difficult to find and that are not; so I shopped pork lard this morning and found it online available at Walmart as Pork Fat (have never noticed that, but they also have pork lard), and also at stores called Crowd Cow, iHerb, Web Restaurant Store (all online) and Amazon. I also found it at another online shop named Farm Food, so I decided to include the link to it for that shop, since the shop seemed rather attractive. Not that the other shops weren’t attractive, I decided to feature Farm Food as my favorite. (I have also included Farm Food as a shop link on my sidebar links as of today: September 14, 2019.) Notably, Armor Lard is available almost anywhere and still another suggestion might be to check your local grocer’s delivery of it through Instacart if you’re not interested in putting it in your regular shopping line up. (Some people don’t like to break their ordinary lists to buy special goods at the store; I totally understand.)
However, I have to note, this delicious gumbo can also be made with vegetable oil or regular lard, yes. But we’ve covered all the bases all the same.
Y’ALL. I can’t even begin to describe just how delicious (and simple) this recipe was. From the minute I walked in the door tonight, my mouth was watering! But enough about how delicious it was… let’s get down to business.
half or whole link of andouille sausage (depends on how much you like) *alternative: don’t use it if you want to make it vegetarian!
2 cans of small red beans (I used Goya brand)
1 can of red kidney beans (Goya brand again)
2 cans of chicken broth *alternative: use veggie stock to make it vegetarian!
1 small diced onion (minced is a great alternative if you don’t want chunks)
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon of tabasco sauce
2 bay leaves
a heap of Tony Chachere’s (channel your inner Cajun)
a few dashes of oregano and garlic salt
a dash or two…
