    As first timers last year, we were amazed by this party! Please count us in: Coops (Peter) and Kalamazoo Gal (Celia). Peter will make Shrimp & Cheesy grits and I will make something sweet.

    Irisarbor,

    I was thinking of bringing a Sicilian style pizza? Would this be ok?

    Unless someone else has their heart set on making gumbo, I would like to make chicken and homemade andouille sausage gumbo.

    I'll bring a crawfish mousse, made with crawfish I caught personally in Boulder Junction, WI.

    I reckon I better stake my claim for Jambalaya before it gets took. I've got a new source for some great sausage I've been wanting to use in a recipe. First time I tasted it, I thought, "Hmm, this'd make some fine Jambalaya."

    And here we are.

    Mrs. Roadhouse will probably throw together some kind of dessert, but no promises yet.

    EDIT: Whoops, scratch all that! Didn't read your initial post carefully and just now see you're planning on doing the Jambalaya. Well, I did Collard Greens last year, so I guess it'll be Maque Choux (Cajun Corn) this year. I'll arm wrestle you for the Jambalaya honors for 2019.

    mmmm crabby patties
    :D

    I'm also going to call this house "FULL" since there are a few more musicians pending. Any others wanting to attend I'll be happy to add to a wait type list.
    Usually, some folks have plans that change.
