Excel Roundup 20140922

If you love Jambalaya, you’ll appreciate the Excel Jambalaya Calculator that Jay Crush has worked on for several years. He just released version 7.0, and you can read about the calculator, and get the file download link, in Judy Walker’s article in the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

I downloaded the file, and you can see a screen shot below. Now, if 150 people drop by for dinner, I’ll be able to cook up a giant batch! Please call ahead, to let me know if you’d like a full plate, or just an 8 oz bowl.
