Gumbo time

When the weather is in the 40’s it’s

Gumbo time in Louisiana

My family is a big fan of gumbo but to tell the truth iam not a big fan! I know it’s hard to believe but it’s the truth.

Gumbo is fairly easy to make-most hardest thing to do is make a roux that needs to cook until dark brown. (Emeril says 2 beers) lol.

Then add trinty,garilc ,parsley,stock and meat.Season to taste. Let cook. Lisa
