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.
