So it has been a few days since the end of TB and I am okay...and then I saw this post...see below...and the overwhelming fact that there will be no more Eric Northman finally hit me! I will miss every character...but Eric will always hold a special place in my heart and I am going to miss my weekly dose of quips and sarcasm.
Last episode ever...unless I get my wish of a Pam spin-off! For the first episode of the season, before this blog, I made chocolate covered strawberries: See image below
And in the same fashion I made them again!
Yum! Plus I never feel too guilty eating them...strawberries are full of vitamins he he! Cooking from the True Blood cookbook was such a treat, so I am sure I will return to these yummy recipes and definitely try more of the drinks in the future.
After tonight, I am going to move toward my new Game of Thrones Cookbook!
Making this pie was so bittersweet....it marks the end of the True Blood story, which is both exciting and truly sad. The series has grow so much over the years and we got to see so much from/about each character's story....getting a bit choked up here...So let's raise our glasses!
To the true death!
Now let's make some pie....
This pie was super simple to make, just a few ingredients then into the oven. Savory and delicious!
To thank them (cast and crew) I am going to watch with appreciation for all the work that went into making True Blood...and eating some sweet pecan pie.
Bye Bye Bon Temps...........for now! Kisses and Love, Bunny
Watching the 2nd episode of True Blood right now...may have to finish this in the morning BUT I made Gumbo!
....Okay I am back. What an episode! No spoilers but the Ginger scene is worth watching again and again and again! The BEST!
Okay here are pics from my Gumbo Ya Ya, which I brought into work today. I think it will go just as fast as my Jambalaya did! This is another Lafayette (La La) recipe, that boy sure knows how to cook! he he
I started off combining the oil and flour to make a nice roux. You want to make sure it gets a little thicker and turns a darker brown color.
Kind of funny and terrifying, you will notice a picture below of my glass dutch oven/pot with the roux....well that was right before it apparently got to hot and literally exploded. I would have taken a picture if I wasn't so freaked out. My kitchen was covered with sauce and shards of glass. I regrouped with the help of Craig and proceeded to use an older blue pot. Geeeesh! I liked that glass though...so sad...at least it went out with a bang! LOL
Add the onion, bell pepper and celery...cook until soft. Then add about 10 cups of broth. Make sure to stir well and then add the chicken and bay leaves and thyme.
After the chicken has cooked for about 2 hours (please check to make sure), you can add in the green onion and parsley.
Try to remove the bay leaves but they can be hard to find. This is when you can add in the sausage and cook for another 30 mins on low heat.
Meanwhile cook up some rice to add to the dish, for serving.
Gumbo turned out great! Really delicious and filling.
I thought it would be too similar to the Jambalaya but it turned out to have a whole different taste, much more of a chicken soup. I really enjoyed it.
Doesn't Jack look amused...I think he is upset that I didn't let him taste-test.
There are only three episodes of True Blood left and I know I am going to cry.
This is going to be just like when LOST was over....I was a bit relieved but over all...just upset. I think I ended up loving every character...the same can be said of Blood.
So, I will be taking off this week (from making a dish) and instead tackling Gran's Pecan Pie for the last episode. Maybe a few more treats too, along the way. I am super excited to see what happens and how the writers/directors are going to leave it. I believe the last episode is titled "Thank You."
