Step #2 & Crockpot Jambalaya

Today was day 3 of the patio build. They guys are here by 8:05am (LOVE that they are here one time and ready to work... no kidding!!)  I greeted them with my barely awake wave.  Immediately D1 & D2 start entertaining them.  They bang on the sliding glass doors.... smile.... show off etc.  The funny thing is that the guys do it back... its like entertainment!!!

Well today they finished the second set of steps.  We are ELATED.  They look amazing.  They will probably have at least 2-3 more days before they are done.  The still have the walkway, the patio and the flowerbed edging to do.  Wanted to post a few more photos!

Working on the second set of steps

Laying the wire


The finished steps with lights... NEXT, the PATIO!

LOVE the lights!!
Tonight I made a friends recipe.....  I used turkey Sausage and I added over 3 cups of rice for a heartier meal that was less soupy.  It was AWESOME.  We just had to add salt (I didn't use any for the recipe) to taste.  Its definitely on 'the list' and SO easy!

Crockpot Jambalaya!

1 pack italian sausage, thawed  
28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 large onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
14oz can chicken broth
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp parsley
2 tsp cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp thyme
2 cups rice, cooked
All the ingredients added to the crockpot

About 7 hours later! Mmmmmmm!  

Put all ingredients in crockpot 6-7 hours on low.  Remove, slice and replace sausage.  Add 2 cups cooked rice and continue cooking 45 mins.
