What's cooking tonight?

I am making Creole with turkey sausage and chicken.   I can also use up a lot of the peppers from my garden in it.  I had a great recipe, but it was on here from years ago and I can't find it anymore since our search stopped working.   Yet another frustration/roadblock.   If the new recipe I found from another site is good, I'll share it here.

My husband texted me and asked me to make macaroni/tuna salad for him to take to lunch.  His plant is so hot he said he just about threw up at the thought of heating something up to eat for lunch.  So, I stopped by the store to pick up some frozen peas and made that for him to take to work... I saved out some of the tuna and made me a sandwich and he ate the macaroni salad when it was finished even though it was neither cold nor hot... just lukewarm.  I did taste it to make sure it was okay and decided to take some out for me to bring for lunch today too!  Innocent

So, Tracy - what is Creole?  Just curious if it is the way you cooked the sausage, a rice dish or something else?

Creole is a tomato based dish with smoked sausage, chicken, shrimp, etc. and rice.   You can get it in a Zatarain's box mix, but I prefer to make my own.

This is mine last night.   It's blurry looking because there was steam coming off of it.

I used 2 chicken breasts and a package of turkey sausage.

I looked at the recipe I modeled mine from, and recreated my tweaked version, posting it here.   I have great culinary advice in it like "onion will make it gross."

Mmm... they both look good... but of course, home made is always better! 

Oh... and I am thinking I'll take my chances with the onions.... Cool
