This is my recipe for jambalaya, it is not traditional, but my family loves it and hopefully yours will too!
1 small onion diced
2 stalks celery diced
1 bell pepper diced
2 garlic cloves diced
2 tblsp. butter
1 ham steak cut into small cubes
1 28oz can diced tomatoes
10 1/2 oz beef broth
1 cup brown rice
1 cup water
1 teas sugar
1 teas dried thyme
1 teas chili powder
1/4 teas pepper
4 cheddarwurst sausages sliced

Make It:
In a large pot, saute onion, celery, green pepper, and garlic in butter until tender. Add next nine ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for an hour, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender. Add sausages cover and cook another ten minutes or until sausages are heated through. Enjoy!


8- 10 apples we have had fuji the last two weeks so thats what I used but you can use any kind that is sweet.

Make It:
Put enough water in bottom of big pot to cover about 3 inches. Place steamer basket in pot. Bring to a boil. Core and quarter all the apples. Once water is boiling put apples in steamer basket, reduce heat and steam until apples are tender, about 30 minutes. Remove apples from heat and let cool. Put half the apples in the blender with some of the steaming water, blend until smooth. Add the rest of the apples and more water if needed, blend until smooth. Enjoy!
