    Aside from the snack platters we picked up at Trader Joe's, we're having dark-roux gumbo (with chicken, tasso, andouille, and shrimp) that took hours to make. Over long grain rice. And cornbread, of course.

    What is the difference between gumbo and jambalaya? I use a recipe for jambalaya that has shrimp,chicken, and andouille in it. (along w/tomato,celery,onion, gn.pepper) served over rice. But the gumbos I've looked at pretty much have the same thing.

    Mrs. Dash - my best friend :-)

    I have high blood pressure, and my husband has recently begun to have elevated bp himself. I've been using Mrs. Dash instead of salt in a lot of recipes since I was diagnosed a few years ago, and I wonder how you use it, if you do.

    When I bake chicken or turkey, I add it to the cavity instead of salt, when I rotissarie chicken I smother it with Mrs. Dash, when I do chicken pies and some casseroles, ditto. I add it to plain rice. For quickie sides, we often use those Uncle Ben's 90-second rice packets, and I always add Mrs. Dash.

    My youngest son (the clown) asked me how to fix his favorite rice one day. Going through the directions I said, "First we mash it, then we tear it, then we nuke it, then we let Mrs. Dash do the rest!" He loves saying that with his "evil" voice. Bwahahahahaha!

    I'd love to hear of other ideas since it's a great way to reduce sodium in one's diet and add a lot of flavor! Thanks

    Mrs. Dash will never replace salt, IMO.

    Gumbo is a soupy dish served with rice and filet and jumbalaya is a rice mixture dish with a tomato base. They both can have the chicken and sausage but a lot of people use crab and other seafood in gumbo. I like shrimp in my jumbalaya.

    Yesterday, I learned that caloriewise, pork bacon and turkey bacon are equal at 70 calories/slice. I also learned that turkey bacon has a higher sodium count than pork bacon. Flavorwise, I think pork bacon beats the pants off turkey bacon. Later for the turkey bacon!

    I usually eat beef bacon, though. I do know that it has 35 calories/slice.
