I’m Not Sandra Lee but I can do Semi-Homemade, too!


While I don’t do a lot of the decorating and over the top with the Semi Homemade the way Sandra Lee from Foodnetwork does, but I do like to draw from lots of ideas I see on many of these programs.

Today, while shopping for a few groceries I watched as the fresh, hot Gumbo was transferred from the cooking pot to the serving bowl.  Oh my, it was calling my name the second I saw it being poured.  Great color, veggies and loaded with a variety of seafood and some sausage.  I decided to get a Large, I’d say 16 oz., right thereabout, to take home.  When Jonathan gets home from school he’s usually pretty hungry, so I put a pot of brown rice on to cook, then placed the gumbo in my middle serving bowl of my favorite set, and when the rice was ready I combined it.  Yes, it was a hit!  The minute he got home up came that aluminum foil and out came a bowl and spoon.  As they say on the commercial ~ VICTORY!!!

So here’s my Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade dish.

See my pretty golden color bowl?  I love it, oh yeah, a Walmart special from a few years ago.  Large one is a butterscotch color and small one is an avocado color, with inside of each of them a light creamy color.  I use them a lot.
