Cajun Night

We had another fun night Sunday with our Big Island International Cooking group and boy was the the Cajun theme going strong. Everyone was in a very festive mood with alot of hungry people ready to dive into all the delicious spicy cuisine.

But before everyone started on the buffet, we had an educational requirement for each gathering to do something in relation to the theme.  That night, we prepared and made spicy cajun sausages with pork, chicken along with various cajun spices and even some fruit added to the mix.

Feeding the sausage preparation into the casings and twisting the sausage to finish the ends.

You can't help but laugh at some of the funny moments when it comes to making sausages and shaping them into the various shapes and sizes - and that induces some large guffaws!

As you can see it takes a group collaborative to use the equipment and create the end product, lots of serious concentration going on here (no not really).

An of course more funny moments that make you want to laugh again...what is it about making sausages that put people in an endless, and humorous mindset?

Now thats some good looking sausages, don't you think?

Ah, finally enough with the joking and time for some serious eating, we have jambalaya, shrimp etoufee, dirty rice, lobster bisque, cajun eggplant and chicken casserole, shrimp creole, and too many other dishes to even try in one seating, let alone the different types of sausages made for the night.

Everyone find a spot - its time for some serious eating and no talking now!

Its always food made from scratch and what alot of fun it is to try to make something new and unexpected  with our cooking group.  Okay, its time for dessert, did I mention we have a whole table set up for desserts to....oh boy!
