I've missed you guys! Things have been so hectic around here, I've barely had time to read, much less answer anything!

I have been LOOKING for a good jambalaya recipe, and this one will be eaten at our house - probably tomorrow, since Lance is working tonight! Thanks!

Thank you Karen! I have some ham left from Easter, and we all love Lousiana food. This is going to be great!
