    What a delicious looking bowl of jambalaya to come home to from the amazing adventure in the Yucatan with the girls! I am going to the store right now to get the ingredients…but I won’t find any shrimp to compare to Monahan’s Seafood Market’s shrimp! I will try my best to get all the ingredients here in sunny Southern California. Doug and I can eat it poolside tonight…he will probably take a dip before dinner. He had SCUM (Southern CA U? Mollusc) mtgs. down in San Diego all day
    today. He left at 6am to drive down there. He will love this dish tonight! Just want to thank you for always having something amazing for us to try! Love ya, LeAnn and Doug
