Thanksgiving is a major holiday for many of us; a time to count one's blessings, get together with family and friends, eat too much, then fall asleep while watching the football game. YES!
Now ol' mon Caj isn't going to tell you how to cook a turkey, you can find more than you'll ever want to know at:
But he will give you a couple of great side dishes, and an alternative recipe if you don't like turkey--Patty's Cajun Seafood Gumbo. No, if you want to know how to make Cajun Fried Turkey you'll have to look in Cajun Clark's Cookbook: One Inch From the Top--The Only Way to Cook! http://www.cajunclarks.com
Okay, let's do it to it. Enjoy!
Green Beans, Caj's Mother's Original Recipe
BAKE at 350°F 'til hot.
Green Beans as Interpreted by Caj
MIX green beans, soup and 1/2 of onion rings. POUR into baking dish. TOP with balance of onion rings. BAKE at 350°F until hot.
Candied Louisiana Yams
Aunt Pet, from whom this recipe came, was a fixture and known for good Southern cooking in her neck of the woods.
PEEL yams, CUT in serving size pieces. PLACE in buttered 9x12x2 baking dish. MIX sugar, flour, salt and spices. SPRINKLE over yams, DOT with butter, and DRIZZLE on orange juice. TOP with lemon slices. BAKE at 400°F for 1 hour, or until yams are tender and thick syrup has formed. BASTE 2 or 3 times during.

This next recipe is for you folks who want something different on Turkey Day, any day for that matter:
Patti's Seafood Gumbo
Not only is Patti a true genteel Southern Lady she's known for her expertise when it comes to cooking Cajun.
In large magnalite soup pot heat oil. Add flour and make a dark brown roux. Add white onion and garlic. Sauté' 'til tender. Stir constantly on low heat. (Season your shrimp in bowl on the side.) Add shrimp--stir in well. Add water (10 cups or so). Simmer this for 30 minutes. Add oysters and crabmeat. Simmer another 30 minutes. Add parsley (to taste) and green onions along with this. If too thick, add more water. Cook more. Serve over rice--add "filet" when you serve in bowl.
