My iPod came up with the greatest shuffle mix Wednesday night while I was cooking.
What was I making? Creole chicken and red beans and rice, but that’s not important. :)

Click here for a playlist I made on youtube (you can make sure play all is checked and open it in a new tab and keep on keepin’ on). The Kat Jones song isn’t on it because her song isn’t on youtube :(
Speaking of red beans and rice (were we?) I’m making another great Louisiana-style dish for Oscar night this Sunday! True Grit(s)! A collective groan would be appropriate here. Okay, that’s what I’m calling them on Sunday. The other 364 days I’ll call them by their proper name, Shrimp ‘n’ Grits. I’ll let you know how they go over, and if you wanna try it yourself, here’s the recipe on cookstr! I’m doubling it, nixing the jalapeños, and subbing in milk for heavy cream (probably).
If you were going to make a dish inspired by one of this year’s Oscar-nominated films, what would you make?
