My mom and I want to someday visit New Orleans during the Mardi gras, and it got me wondering about Jamabalaya. I wonder if Jambalaya from New Orleans (I think) is like the Paella from the Spanish culture. I don't know, but would like to try it all the same! The only thing I don't like about jambalaya is that is usually has seafood like paella, where I prefer chicken. I know jambalaya is also made with some type of rich sausage (I think), but am wondering if I can make my own jambalaya from going to the store myself and buying ingredients. I mean who wants to wait till they visit New Orleans, right? Have you ever made jambalaya?
