Shellfish and Okra Gumbo

Posted on

Sometimes I struggle with a good opening line.  Today my progress is impeded by a really good episode of General Hospital.


I learned a thing or two about gumbo.  One is that you should start with a really dark roux, which explains why I had to sit on a stool and stir this goop for 20 minutes.  Goop being the roux, of course.


I also learned that gumbo with herbs used to be served on Good Friday and contains at least seven greens for good luck.  Not pictured:  parsley and scallions.


I still want to know where the tomatoes are, though.


It’s a good thing I love okra.  Let’s just say that I got Jake’s share too after he pushed them all aside.


Lucky for him there was some sausage too.
