|The container of leftover stew.|
The reviews indicated it was a little bland, which makes sense since there's barely any spices in it. I wanted to add some Cajun seasoning, but I forgot that when I organized the pantry to alphabetize my spices in my new spice rack (hand made Christmas gift from Husband Jeff) that I discovered the jar of the Cajun spice blend was cracked and I threw the whole thing away. So I followed this Simple Cajun Seasoning recipe to approximate the flavor I was looking for.
We had some leftover rice in the freezer from a recent Chinese takeout meal, so I reheated that in the microwave and we put the stew on top of the rice. Dinner was ready in less than 20 minutes. Well, I didn't time it, but close enough. The point is, it was quick. And Jeff and I thought it was great, a definite repeat.
