Gumbo Round Up....2:41 PM
Here in the South, when it starts cooling off, all the pots come out. No more humid and sweaty summers swatting 'squitos and box fans, we gear up for soup and stew season.
It is still somewhat hot down here, but occasionally we get a cool breeze and witness a few leaves falling to the ground. That is more than enough reason for us to get ready for fall and winter and start gearing our pots up for warm gooey, soupey, stewey goodness.
One of our staples at my house during the cooler months, is gumbo. It is a cajun dish with a roux base and loaded with okra, tomatoes, shrimp, chicken and sausage.
It is not the easiest dish to photograph, but oh it is so comforting. We usually serve with some saltine crackers and with some rice.
Here are some that have caught my eye on the internet. Hopefully, I will photograph some this fall and share my mom's recipe for it with you. Until then, consider adding this to your fall and winter meal rotation.
