Cajun New Year's Day Buffet

If Christmas is over, can New Year's and Mardi Gras be far behind? I just love to ring in the New Year with a New Year's Day buffet, filled with sinfully delicious Cajun favorites. And of course, a batch of my Cajun Bloody Mary's for those guests who stayed out too late on New Year's Eve. Here are a few of the delights that I'll be serving my family and friends on my New Year's Day buffet. All scrumptious, cher, and out of this world! Bon appetit and Happy New Year!!!


 Easy Crab Stuffed Jalapenos

5 ounces cream cheese
3 ounces of grated sharp cheddar cheese
8 ounces lump crab meat
1 tsp. crushed garlic
1 green onion, chopped fine
juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt to taste
12 large jalapenos, seeded and cut in half
Blanche the jalapenos in a large pot of boiling water for about 30 seconds and plunge into ice water and drain.
Combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, crab meat,onions, salt, and lemon juice
in a medium sized bowl. Mix well.
Fill the jalapenos and bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
Hot, spicy and delicious.

Just strolling down Marguerite Boulevard and I notice your joint is only 100 yards away or is it 100 miles?
Could do with a large helping of everything ~ it looks delicious . . . . :)
