David is the master at making seafood soups, stews, and gumbos. It is always a nice treat to have his seafood stew! He made something similar here… DC Cajun Quinoa!
I never know the measurements or spices that go in this… maybe I can get him to write it down the next time. But I can tell you what was in the shopping cart for the stew when we went to the grocery store!
No we did not add basil– David cut me a BIG basil bouquet to celebrate my first day of teaching a college class! We trimmed the basil to fit in the vase and that “little” piece was cut off so he stuck it in my stew 😉
The basil smells AMAZING! And it adds a great pop of green to the table… before we know it all the trees will no longer be green… plants too! That is all part of the life cycle of plants… I think the fall leaves are gorgeous but I love my summer colors!
I love my basil… and it was a surprise when David brought this beautiful bunch in from the DC Garden! And no worries… Larry and his pent house survived with no damage while the cutting of the basil bouquet went down 😉 I think it opened the jungle up a little… open spaces are the rage in pent houses now, y’all didn’t know that? Haha and it will throw the birds off that might think we have tenants in there…
Back to the iced coffee and studying,
