Food for the MEN of Football Season

I like Sunday televised football games because while the guys watch the game in the den, I get the kitchen all to myself to cook up something creative and delicious. Can you imagine that! I love hungry men who appreciate good food. Yesterday I made Shrimp and Sausage Gumbo and served it over organic white basmatic rice. This recipe is so easy, a bit on the spicy side, and man pleasing with it's shrimp, andouille sausage, and red peppers. So, ladies, send me an email and I'll send you the recipe.

Healthy food tip: High quality rice is good eaten in moderation and balanced with other healthy foods. Select white or even better, brown organic basmatic rice and cook it according to package instructions. (White basmati takes only 20 minutes to cook. Brown basmatic takes 40 minutes, but it's definitely worth the wait. It's low in fat, high in fiber - almost a perfect food and once you get use to it's wonderfully nutty taste, you'll find it becomes like a regular comfort food.)
