While it is still fresh in my brain, I made gumbo yesterday, the little piece of paper I had to create it from has ingredients, nothing else. So to keep it in memory, and to share...


1/2 stick of butter
1/4 flour
Make a rue, get it really dark, like chocolate.

Add 2 cans of diced tomato, pints.

Add these...
Chop up small
1 cup onion
1 cup bell pepper
1 cup celery
Add diced potato if you like, maybe a couple small ones
Andouille sausage, sliced
Creole seasoning to taste, I added a good bit, maybe 3 tsp
Salt and pepper if you think it needs it

Simmer for about an hour, or all veggies are done
Add shrimp for the last 5 minutes

Time to eat!

These Cabobbs are easy and tasty. I tend to use uncooked shrimp, onion, peppers and pineapple. Alternate them on the stick, add your favorite bbq sauce. I like to take that cheap sweet baby rays and add honey and cayenne pepper. Enjoy


looks like I will be migrating to mewe, I will keep this open though and check in from time to time
