    Beth - Zatarain's is a good package mix. look here

    Scratch recipe - here I was born in Shreveport and I use Zatarain's, Wal-mart's or Tony Chachere's mixes. Much easier and tastes good.

    Ingredients

    2 cups enriched rice
    4 cups chicken stock
    4 cloves minced garlic
    1 1/2 cups diced white onion
    1 cup diced green bell pepper
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    Salt and pepper
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/4 pound pork sausage meat
    1/4 pound ground beef
    1/2 pound chicken giblets
    1 bunch green onions, chopped

    Directions

    In colander, rinse rice several times until water runs clear. Place rice in pot and add chicken stock. Bring to a boil then cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Do not overcook.

    Saute garlic, onions and bell peppers in vegetable oil until soft for about 15 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, thyme, bay leaf and cayenne and add to rice. Cook sausage and ground beef together in sautepan and add to rice.

    In separate pot place giblets, cover with water and simmer for 30 minutes with green onions, salt and pepper. Let cool enough to chop into small dice then add to rice mixture. Mix rice well and let simmer on lowest heat for an additional 30 minutes, stirring continuously, until flavors meld.

    It was 100F here in NE Ohio today, so I whipped up a couple of Romain salads topped with grilled chicken tenders (made from boning out chicken breasts) cooked in my ribbed cast iron pan. Used Marzetti's Sweet & Sour dressing to finish.

    I have been progressing in learning to BBQ and I want to tackle a whole brisket on Monday for a party we are having at work. One of my coworkers is on gluten free diet so I need to watch rubs and marinades etc that I use. Any suggestions??

    I made 4 dozen potato/cheese/bacon pierogies as a side to go with a pile of pulled pork for dinner. They ain't pretty, but they were tasty.

    Do what 45nut said, buy the Zatarain's! Total time in the kitchen, 20mins.

    Try some of the other box dinners Zatarain's has, my favorite is the Spicy Jambalaya Mix. But the wife won't eat it so we buy the regular, and I add some Louisiana hot sauce to mine. The Red Beans, and rice, is another hit! http://www.zatarains.com/Products/Jambalaya.aspx

    OK Shooter and JLA. Critique time. Trying my first brisket so I opted for a half brisket as well as some boneless pork ribs. 225 for 7 hrs for the brisket I think and of course less for ribs. Still gotta get some of Shooters rub to try.

    Sesame Pork stir fry with veggies & honey-pineapple sauce. Veggie fried rice to compliment.
