Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Cookbook Book Club, Issue II, Volume IX, CAJUN!

Rhonda hosted the September Cookbook Book Club

And her theme was


Let the Good Times Roll!!

And roll we did!
Cookies not for our gathering but rather for the Chamber coffee held that morning
How appropriate!


We had great food
And as always, the Potluck Gods smiled on us . . . 
No duplicates!


Angela's Andouille sausage

Donna's Fried Green Tomatoes with Shrinp and Remolade


Angela's Hush Puppies
(Our Angela is an overachiever -- she brought two dishes!)

(The hostess provides and she made two smaller ones since Cajun food is just so darn good!)

Rhonda's Shrimp and Grits

Rhonda's Pastalaya
(Jambalaya with pasta instead of rice)


Rita's Cajun vegetable medley

My Cajun rice pilaf
(couldn't be simpler)

Liz's Cajun vegetable salad

Michelle's Cajun Potato Salad
(recipe received from a lady at a gathering of Cajun's in Louisianna)


Michelle's Cracker Pudding
(Also eaten at that same gathering -- it was most unusual and reminded all of us of a coconut cream pie)
(Michelle's was not an overachiever this evening -- she brought a guest and so brought another dish!)

We all enjoyed our Cajun evening.
It was good food and spicy but nothing too spicy.
We wore our beads and laughed and talked until really late!

This has been a good adventure -- the Cookbook Book Club
And we're eager for the next chapter!
