Quick and easy jambalaya - makes 2-3 servings
Cut up and brown one chicken breast and one andouille sausage, set aside.
Cut up and fry until starting to brown:
4 small sweet bell peppers or 1 regular size

you'll also need half a can of diced tomatoes, quick microwave rice and the following spices
1/2 tbsp of garlic powder, bay leaves, thyme

Zooey's Nursery

I love how this turned out! My mom made the curtains and bedskirt, the butterflies and pictures above her crib are from Etsy, and everything else is either gifted or repurposed!
