What's for Dinner?

So…Barney and I are gonna do the soup thing. What better soup to make than a nice hearty low carb soup?? I know we will lose a ton of weight if we venture back into the low carb lifestyle. I am craving Jambalaya…so I’m gonna make a soup. found this at: Linda’s Low Carb Menus and Recipes
This looks OM NOM . 🙂  Linda has the greatest recipes!
Edited to add: I’m going to substitute Turkey Smoked sausage for Pork and Shrimp for the ham. I need to keep mindful of my blood pressure. 🙂


2-4 chicken breasts, cubed and coated with 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, diced, 2 1/2 ounces
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped, about 4 ounces
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoons onion powder
1 pound ham, cubed
1/2 pound smoked sausage, in bite-size pieces
15 ounce can diced tomatoes
2 14-ounce cans beef broth
3 cups water
1 chicken bouillon cube
Heat the butter in a large soup kettle; brown the chicken in the butter. Remove and set aside. Sauté the onion, celery, green pepper and garlic in the kettle until tender, adding a little oil if necessary. Add the ham and sausage; sauté a few minutes. Add all remaining ingredients except the chicken; bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 20 minutes. Add the chicken and heat through.
