Last night, Cory, Bo, Betty and Connie (welcome back to Austin Connie!) dropped by my house to enjoy the jambalaya that I decided to cook. I split the batch into two before I added the meat because Bo doesn't really like the taste of water dwelling critters, and I wanted to put in some crawfish. So, the recipe that I used said to put the rice in raw in the last 25 minutes at medium low temperature but, even after nearly 40 minutes the rice was still a little crunchy. We ended up eating dinner a little later than I anticipated but, it turned out good (the non-mudbug batch was cooked completely, anyway).

I still have plenty left, so I'll probably be serving it this weekend when Cory and I brew again. Cory figured we should have a lighter beer to enjoy for the tasting party so we'll put together another 5 gallon batch on Saturday (probably around 1:30 or so). I don't have high hopes for Cory's Forgotten Ale. He pulled the cap off the

airlock and smelled the beer's outgassing and said "it smells like cleaning fluid". We'll see this weekend when we move the beer to the secondary fermenter.
