If you do this, egg wash and then roll in crushed Ritz crackers. I could eat the arse out of those things.

Decided to do one. But since I am doing jambalaya too I dont want to do a regular chicken and andouille. I havent seen many recipes on here for seafood gumbo, atleast there arent any in the td cookbook

Def have some boudin on hand Ronnies smoked is the best in BR. Make a bunch of small crawfish pies, always a big hit and easy to eat.

Seafood gumbo is tricky. You need a good strong stock. It must be served pretty quickly or the seafood will overcook. It doesn't "hold" well. If you're going to serve it right away , it will work.

Since you're sort of doing a "taste of Louisiana foods", I think the chicken and sausage gumbo will be fine. You could do a seafood meat jamba mix.

If you want to do a green dish, you could make a mess of collard greens.

Cleaning them is a lot of work.. if you want frozen that are already cleaned and chopped, Southside Produce on Perkins has them frozen and boxed.

I was afraid chicken and andouille gumbo and jambalaya would be too much of the same. Maybe I will change it to pork and andouille jambalaya instead.

It won't be.. It's good to keep the flavors consistent so you're not all over the map.. Remember pork is rich and has alot of fat.. I'd use chicken with the jambalaya so your presentation isn't "porked-out".

Decided on jambalaya, white beans, gumbo, crawfish cardinale, pulled pork sliders with coleslaw, crawfish and Andouille cheesecake, hogshead cheese, grilled sausage with mustard, and boudin eggrolls and a few other dips by a friend. Should be an interesting few days of prep.
