Seventies Soulchild: I cook it from the Zatarain's box! lol

deannie: bbenn I did not get a chance to me you

AYWalton: Gumbo is the same as most of the stews that I make all the time. But I might change up the ingredients---lamb or beef, okra, vegetables, and serve with either rice or a finger foot starch--fufu---anything works for that.

Seventies Soulchild: I was referencing Jolof Rice

keli1: Selma, how are you doing?

bbenn: ohh k. Zatarain8)

Seventies Soulchild: Its amazing how so many latin foods are really African in origins.

bbenn: AYwalton - sounds good.

Selma: Pretty good keli..did you get snow

bbenn: Gumbo has gotten so expensive to make.

AYWalton: but I use a mixture of spices---red pepper --that is contant, garlic, nutmeg, cloves, tumeric, and more. Depends on what flavor I want to bring out. Of course pepper is basic, then take it from there.

msD: My family only eats Camellia beans

keli1: hi 70s, and Selma, no snow, just rain! but there are 5k out of power, near me

AYWalton: Plus I might mix turkey, chicken, fish--shrimp whatever.

AYWalton: I will buy raw peanuts and roast them.
