Clean and peel the vegetables. Slice small. In my black skillet – brown tasso and seasoning mix – add vegetables and add little chicken stock. Cover and let cook down till soft. .

Tasso  ham -Though tasso may be eaten on its own, it is more often used as part of a flavor base for stews or braised vegetables. It is used in dishes ranging from pasta to crab cakes to soup and gravy. Appropriate to its roots, tasso is most often found in recipes of Creole origin, such as jambalaya.

National Oyster Day !

Today we celebrate – National Oyster Day!

OYSTERS Louisiana Oysters

Oysters are beloved throughout Louisiana, and rightfully so: the sweet, lightly briny flavor of Gulf oysters is unmatched by any found elsewhere in the U.S.

Oyster adorers have learned to love their soft chewy texture, as within it lies the oyster’s merrior—those flavor-defining characteristics that come from the waters where the oyster matured. The varieties of plankton the oyster eats, the type of water filtering through it—all of the elements of its environment are present in the oyster’s flavor, just as a wine reveals elements of its upbringing at first sip.

Once shucked, oysters are delicious served raw, fried, chargrilled, stewed, Rockefellered, Bienvilled and just about any other way you can imagine.

SEASONS

Louisiana oysters are largest during the cooler months, October through April. Oysters are available year-round in Louisiana, so you’ll never have to go without.

Watermelon & Cheese Snacks

How refreshing and easy .

home4tina

Here is an easy appetizer or mid-day snack for Watermelon Day. Cut  some watermelon into cubes. Then take whatever mild cheese you have and cut into cubes also. I used Swiss cheese but Baby Bel or Monterey Jack would also work. The next choice is what type of skewers to use. You can use the long bamboo or metal skewers. I used some small cocktail sword skewers for small bite size snacks.You will notice that I placed some extra watermelon cubes in the center of my plate since I had some extra watermelon cut.
