Our menu plan this week features American/French cajun recipes from Louisiana. We like to call them Ragin’ Cajun recipes, because you can adjust the spicy level to your liking. Crank them up as fiery hot as you can stand or as mild as you need (for the kids)!

Dinner: Cajun Tamale Pie recipe. This cajun casserole is quick and easy to assemble and bakes in only 30 minutes.
