This was a nice change...loved the addition of scallops and the cajun spices...but the hubby said he really just enjoys our old stand by...the basic oyster stew...he hates when I play with his favorites...but you never know when you can discover a new favorite...very tasty stew...made for "Bill Board" tag game...
