Quick and Easy Cajun Rice Dressing

"I love rice dressing (aka "dirty rice"), but don't always have the time it takes to make from scratch. This is a pretty good substitute! Very tasty, for so little effort. It only takes 5 minutes of prep time! It's a great side dish for roast chicken or barbecue. Freezes beautifully."

I'm a passionate cook from Louisiana. I've lived all over the world, but have returned to the state and I'm currently residing in Covington, just north of New Orleans. Of course, my favorite food is Southern-style, especially the Cajun food of SW Louisiana. I have two favorite cookbooks that are so well-worn and dog-eared, they're almost unreadable. "Talk About Good", the Jr. League Cookbook of Lafayette, LA, and "Pirate's Pantry", the Jr. League Cookbook of Lake Charles, LA. Both are extraordinary. If I had a month off with no responsibilities, I'd take my husband and animal babies down to our camp in Grand Isle, LA. It's on the Gulf coast with a beautiful sea breeze and great fishing. When we're there, we fish for speckled trout and redfish and catch dozens of crabs off of the wharf. At night, we gather on the deck and fry fish and boil crabs with corn, new potatoes and whole pods of garlic. All of this accompanied by fun cocktails. The only thing that could improve this scenario, is if there was a Sunday afternoon Saints game on. I'm a HUGE, long-time fan. Ah, sheer bliss....
