Fat Tuesday {Gumbo}

Yep, a week late. Actually Tuesday nights I am at my workout so we celebrated Fat Tuesday over the weekend.  On the menu, Prosecco hurricanes, crunchy baked shrimp, a cheese tray with my favorite stinky cheese (it’s good to have friends in cheesy places that know what you like), and finally sausage and chicken gumbo.  I leave the gumbo cooking to my husband, I stuck to the cocktails and appetizers.

Gumbo Dinner

Oh, I did help stir the roux, it take about 30 minutes so tag team stirring is helpful.  I love the nuttiness of the roux, it is worth all the effort.  This is the  gumbo recipe he prefers though to him it is merely a guideline.  This version had a light roux, low heat, smoked sausage, and chicken so tender it was like butta.  No two gumbos are ever the same in our house.

    That looks so good Jacky!! Our pasta sauces are never the same – depends on the tomatoes – sometimes I need to add carrots, or more tomato paste. Tony is actually making his pasta sauce today for dinner tonight so I can go to the gym after work! 😀
