2 pd
Andouille and Kielbasa sausages

Wash the potatoes real good, slice the potatoes in half

Take the sausage links and slice in 1 1/2 inch pieces.

In a stock pot enough water to cover all the ingredients.  Add the seasoning and bring water to a hard boil, then add the garlic cloves, bay leaf, potatoes, corn, Kielbasa, salt and pepper.  Simmer for an hour.

Add the corn and let boil for 10 minutes.
Finally add the shrimp and let boil for 3 minutes then drain all the liquid

 Pour drained ingredients onto newspaper.   Sprinkle with lemon juice (we completely forgot this step, ugh!!)  Serve with bread and butter

We spent a lovely evening at our daughter's house.  She invited us over for dinner on this Memorial Day.  She told us she was making Low Country Boil.  I had to google it, I never heard of it.  She sent me a picture of one she had pulled off the internet and WOW!!  My eyes bugged out and my mouth was already salivating.  It looked delicious!!  I couldn't wait.  After a morning full of yard work, hubby and I worked up an appetite and we were more than ready to eat when we got to her house.  The aroma was amazing and fortunately we didn't have to wait long when we got there, it was all ready to go.  Suffice to say, this will be a Memorial Day tradition from now on!

I pray you had a blessed Memorial Day
