Video: Louisiana Chef Makes Crawfish Etouffee

From Denny: This video is great for demonstrating how to make a roux fast and furious on the stove. If you are unfamiliar with how to make a roux then this video will prove useful. Making a roux to the desired color of choice is all about preference. New Orleans uses a very dark roux the color of milk chocolate, sometimes darker. In Baton Rouge we go for a lighter roux about the color of caramel candy.

The traditional roux most people know is what you use for a cream sauce - but you don't take it to the darker stages before adding water, milk or cream. A traditional roux is where you heat a pan, add butter or oil, then add flour until well dissolved, then adding the liquid quickly. The key to a good roux in Louisiana cooking, besides the color which adds a richer roasted flavor since you are basically pan roasting the flour, is to cook the roux and liquid for at least 30 minutes to cook out the flour flavor and glue like texture. That's when the dish gets to shine as awesome flavor, playing up the spices.

Since this is a local food video, and the local media doesn't usually keep embedded videos available past one year, I've included some recipes for crawfish etouffee and smothered crawfish (about the same thing).

Smothering your food sounds a bit psychopath to people outside the American South but it's a favorite of the slow food mindset in country Cajun cooking. What are some of the essentials for this smothering technique? You have to bring on board The Holy Trinity of diced onions, bell pepper and celery - along with some salt, pepper and garlic powder.

The smothering technique is also used for meat dishes like pan fried pork chops that are then covered and cooked with a small amount of liquid and veggies, creating a gravy. Basically, it's a kind of braising. First you sear the meat, then add the onions, bell pepper and celery, then the flour. When you add the flour this way you get a lighter brown roux. Add your liquid of choice and you don't have to worry about getting lumps in your gravy. Just cover and slow cook for a while until desired tenderness. Easy as can be!

It's one of those low maintenance dishes you can ignore for 30 minutes to an hour or keep on low heat until ready to serve. These kinds of slow food smothered dishes work well for busy households where everyone is on the go with different schedules but want a home cooked meal ready and waiting with ease. In the South we even smother potatoes and other vegetables besides meat dishes.

Chef Joe Caton, of Louisiana Lagniappe restaurant in Baton Rouge, serves up a classic Louisiana crawfish etouffee. He only offers this dish when the crawfish are in season and fresh. Be sure to visit Louisiana during crawfish season which lasts through May! The rest of the year you will only find the crawfish tails frozen.

If you don't have access to crawfish in your area then consider using shrimp, oysters or a meaty fish as any of those choices are equally wonderful!

Those Funny Mothers Day Quotes and Trivia

From Denny: Check out the sampling from one of many funny posts just in time to enjoy for Mothers Day! From the latest Mothers Day cartoons to funny facts about Mothers Day traditions around the world to funny quotes from mothers and about mothering to laugh out loud "how you know you are a mother when..."






Check this out on the way to facts about Mothers Day:

So when do they think the first celebrations of a Mother's Day were honored? As with so many traditions it goes back to ancient Greece where that culture celebrated the Mother of the Gods, Rhea. Their version of the perfect mother received gifts of cakes made with the sweetest honey, lovely flowers and drinks at dawn. Sounds pretty good to me. Make my drink a Margarita on the rocks with Silver Patron Tequila - though I'm not so sure alcoholic drinks were on that Mother's Day menu. :)

Well, we all know you can't talk "ancient" without bringing up the ancient Egyptians into the conversation. They honored the glorious goddess Isis because she was celebrated as the Mother of the Pharaohs - and we all know it's good PR to talk good about the government when getting your head cut off is at stake.

Speaking of an ancient culture, the Chinese are rather sentimental about how they celebrate motherhood. The tradition with them is that their family name often begins with the character for the word "mother." It's the way they like to honor their ancestral mothers who brought their line into this world.





You Know You Are Really A Mom When...

* You want to take out a contract on the kid who broke your child's favorite toy and made them cry.

* You consider finger paint to be a controlled substance.

* You mastered the art of placing food on a plate without anything touching.

* Your child insists that you read "Once upon a Potty" out loud in the lobby of the doctor's office and you do it.





My Mother Taught Me...

To Value A Job Well Done: If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.

Time Travel: If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!

Logic: Because I said so, that's why.

5 Easy Recipes 4 Chicken and Sausage Gumbo



Another version of Chicken and sausage gumbo by Southern Foodways Alliance @ flickr who compete in cook offs

From Denny: When shrimp and crawfish are not in season or too expensive then folks on the Gulf Coast turn to chicken and sausage to make their gumbos. There are as many variations of gumbo as there are people!

This recipe comes from our local newspaper writer, Corinne Cook, who has devised a short-cut on making the roux. She uses the bottled version made by Savoie that is called Savoie’s Old-Fashioned Dark Brown Roux. I've often sent this product out of state included in a Louisiana basket for gifts as it is great for novices who don't know how to make their own roux.

Let me know how you like this version of gumbo. I've included links to other variations of Chicken and Sausage Gumbo I've posted on this blog too, enjoy!





Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

From: Corinne Cook, local food writer for The Advocate newspaper

Serves: 8

Ingredients:

2 links Savoie’s original pork sausage
Water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 large chicken, cut into pieces
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Salt, pepper and cayenne pepper, to taste
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup chopped green onion tops
Cooked rice

Directions:

1. Chop sausage into 2- to 3-inch lengths. Cook in 1 cup water for 15 minutes to soften the sausage and remove some of the fat. Drain and set aside to cool slightly, then cut into about 1/2-inch slices or bite-size pieces.

2. In large heavy pot over medium-high heat, make a dark brown roux using flour and oil. Stir constantly until it turns the color of cocoa powder.

3. Add celery, bell pepper and onions to roux. Cook until vegetables are softened, stirring occasionally, as needed.

4. Add the chicken pieces to the pot along with the garlic and about 1/2 gallon water. Season to taste with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.

5. Cover and cook for 30 minutes over low heat. Stir in the reserved sausage and put the top back on the pot and continue cooking for another hour or until chicken is tender.

6. Add chopped parsley and green onion tops about 5 minutes before serving, while the gumbo is still hot. Serve over cooked rice.

NOTE: Corinne Cook said she actually used Savoie’s Old-Fashioned Dark Brown Roux when she made our pot of gumbo. “I can’t tell the difference in taste. If using the prepared roux, I sauté my vegetables first in a bit of oil, and if that’s too dry, I add a little water to it until they’re soft, then add the water, roux and chicken. Or, follow the recipe on jar, if necessary, but I use a little less than the amount of roux they call for,” Cook said.

Whats Happening in America This Week - Political Cartoons 24 Apr 2010

From Denny: In the interest of getting these pages to load faster for you I thought I'd try something different. You know about the traveling dinner concept? That's where you go to one person's house for the opening cocktail or appetizer, then travel on to another house for a salad, then somewhere else for the entree and finally the dessert.

Well, since I have such a love of the satire from clever political cartoonists lampooning our society, current culture and politics the weekly posts have gotten far too long. Fun but long. So, I thought I'd treat you to a traveling post among my various blogs to enjoy the flavors at each "house."

In this "house" post weapons seem to be the main theme: Iran working on becoming a nuclear state, concealed weapons carried by college students on campus and coffee drinkers into Starbucks coffee shops. It's no big surprise that NASA and the Air Force are preparing to weaponize space. More weapons loose on deck are the "nuclear option" of the Republican filibuster, the financial sledgehammer from Wall Street bankers and - leading up to celebration of Earth Day - planet Earth setting off the Icelandic volcano to scream its message of "Enough already with the fossil fuels, people!" Yeah, that Iceland volcano sure got the attention of the airline industry. It cost $200 million per day worldwide, wrecking a weak economy in Europe and America.

Check out what the cartoonists had to say about this week's news...

Congress and their voting dilemmas:















Oh, NASA, Oh, NASA, where art thou?

Cool Earth Day Links, Message From Our Prez




From Denny: Since I've been getting bombarded with email about Earth Day - a lot of it worthy to visit - it deserved a post to pass along what people are doing to appreciate their planet.

There are news articles, children's activities and suggestions of how you can help in small ways every day. Make every day your Earth Day! :)








Earth Day, 40 Years Later: How Far Have We Come? - 20 Million Americans Joined in First Earth Day; Organizers Say 1 Billion Worldwide Taking Part Today





Letter from Vice President Joe Biden


Good afternoon,

We’ve been celebrating Earth Day for 40 years now, but the truth is that tomorrow may be the first one when we are truly able to say that we have started down the road to a real clean energy economy -- and a better world for our kids.

Today I am kicking off the Administration’s celebration of Earth Day in advance by announcing $452 million in Recovery Act “Retrofit Ramp-Up” awards. These awards will help make energy efficiency affordable for hundreds of thousands of homeowners and businesses, and are expected to create tens of thousands of jobs in the process.

And this is just a tiny sliver of what we’ve done. As the President’s point man on the Recovery Act, which included America’s biggest investment ever in clean energy, I’ve visited countless communities that have seen jobs come back through these kinds of initiatives.

You can learn more about all our efforts at WhiteHouse.gov/EarthDay, and also join Carol Browner, Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change, for a special online video chat tomorrow at 12:00PM EDT at WhiteHouse.gov.

Of course Earth Day is about more than just government action to protect our air, water and environment. Since the first Earth Day forty years ago countless Americans have taken action to make their local communities cleaner and healthier and to have a positive impact on our planet.

This year, President Obama is calling on all of us to pitch in and participate in the Earth Day of Service. On Serve.gov/EarthDay you can find thousands of Earth Day Service events in communities across the country.

Whether you pick up trash at a local park, plant trees, or clean up the river or stream in your hometown, there are plenty of ways to get involved. I hope you’ll join President Obama and me in celebrating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

Sincerely,

Joe Biden
Vice President of the United States





"As we continue to tackle our environmental challenges, it’s clear that change won’t come from Washington alone. It will come from Americans across the country who take steps in their own homes and their own communities to make that change happen."

- President Barack Obama

Outrageous Tea Party Tax Signs and the Perverted Fools That Carry Them

From Denny: This past week the Tea Party was out in full force doing their usual antics. Many thought they could spell and make awesome political statements most profound on their signs.

Yes, folks, these people were actually caught in public wielding these idiot signs no self-respecting orangutan would venture. I know animals at the zoo smarter than these people who claim to be human.

It's a sad day when America is reduced to this excuse for political discourse. But then again, humor blogs like mine are thrilled for the easy lob over the net they handed me for an hilarious post! After all, it's only fair: they mock liberals so it's our turn to mock them. And they made it so very easy because they really mocked themselves. And I have the photos to prove it:






Oh, look! A Fox "News" employee seen carrying booster signs for the Network of Fools:






And who died and made this guy God of the Universe? Like God really told him this. "Do ya think?" he could be cousin to TV televangelist Pat Hate Them All Robertson? Rather amazing just how much God gets misquoted - and always by the meanest people?






The very reason these people are so screwed up: they can't spell! And the news media is trying to convince us these guys are mostly college graduates??? Uh, they should get their money back from those lame colleges if that is true...






So, they are proud to be stupid, ignorant and suffering from a lack of curiosity to find out the truth and get their facts straight? These guys specialize in being contentious, not smart nor interested in solving the problems of the country they claim to love. Well, if they loved this country they would be more respectful to their President and their fellow Americans who are also represented by the same flag. You can't respect a symbol and not respect the very people who are that symbol. It's disingenuous. Republican political strategists: playing destructive games as usual.







Have you noticed what is wrong with this photo? This racist doesn't have a "Kick me, I'm too stupid to read and find out the facts" sign pinned to his shirt so he can find his way home.







Last time I checked Jesus Christ said, "Do not resent or hold back the taxes you owe to your government: Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's."






This nurse has been working waaaay too many hours:






Ah, the Cult of the Brainwashed:






Uh, yeah, lady, your Republican Party is the government group that paid for all those pole dances at the strip club with your donations - while Democratic Speaker Pelosi was home, fully clothed, minding her own business and watching over her grand kids. Hmmm... "Do ya think?" we have a morality divide going on?






More from the Cult of the Brainwashed who believed the lies Sarah Palin told them about the health care bill contained Death Panels for the government to kill your grandparents. "Do ya think?" they could bother to actually read the health care bill to realize there were no Death Panels whatsoever in the new health care bill just passed? Did they flunk Reading Comprehension and Critical Thinking 101?






A vulgar pun on the word "dictator." These guys must have dementia. Last time I checked elections vote in a President. Dictators use military coups to take over governments. These guys are just angry they don't get to be the dictators. They are angry because no one takes them seriously any more. They make selfish decisions that only benefit a few wallets and then wonder why no one listens to their madman ravings.






Let me see if I get this right: "Obama wants to take away our guns." Let's try this again, folks. Obama gets a flunking grade from those groups who do want to take guns out of the hands of crazy fools like these Tea Party wing nuts. Yet another lie believed by the Non-Thinkers. It really makes you wonder if we should start making people pass IQ tests before allowing them into the voting booth for the next election. That ought to give them something to howl about for sure.

All this recent polls and news coverage garbage that the average Tea Party person is college educated is more stupidity from the media wanting to use the Tea Party for their outrageous wing nut image to promote news viewership. How can anyone graduate college without good reading comprehension? Come on; try again, oh, marketing gurus.







Starbucks was offended when people wearing guns came into their coffee shops and banned them. There was a big fury over it. So, this guy thinks he's funny and does not have to respect the business owners' rules. He can just make up the rules as he goes along and everyone is expected to obey him because he's the one wearing the gun. Think again, wing nut. Point that gun at me and I'll take that as an invitation to take it away from you - and I ain't talking about making new gun laws either.







More from the Cult of the Brainwashed of lying "facts" probably cut and pasted off of the Fox "News" site or other domestic terrorist militia sites. This sign is such an idiot thinking statement there is nothing to do but spit on it for its inane inaccuracies:







Oh, look at this zoo of pretend Christians. The reason Republicans so hate Speaker Nancy Pelosi is because she was tough enough to get almost 300 bills passed in the House, turning the screamer Republicans on their ears. Notice how the Republicans use poisonous character assassination politics to further their agendas to regain political power. These people and their toxic followers always turn on fellow Americans, don't care about fellow Americans, issue death threats against fellow Americans and deny respect to other fellow Americans but demand respect for themselves. What's wrong with this picture? Answer: a lot!







More from the Sarah Palin Fan Club of Fools. Hmmm... so where were these "concerned citizens about America's debt" when George Bush was in office for eight long years? He took a country in the black to a country owing trillions of dollars in only a year of his "stewardship." Why were these same Tea Party people not riled up and angry about Bush and Cheney spending their tax dollars recklessly? Somehow, all this rhetoric about hating taxes is just a smoke screen for wanting someone to abuse, hate and use for their personal punching bags like typical abusers.







The Lying Liars and the Liars Who Love Them = Tea Party and Republican Party:






Woman, if you are a domestic goddess then it must be the Goddess of Meanness and Stupidity, one for each gun barrel:







Can you imagine walking around wearing such a ridiculous sweatshirt emblazoned with a Sarah Palin saying? Another member of the Cult of the Brainwashed:






Straight from the hating racist hearts who are actually speaking the truth about themselves. Clever they are not. These days the Ku Klux Klan (KKK for hip short) is parading around without their white hoods:
