I used the cookbook LaBelle Cuisine recipe “Geechee Geeche Ya Ya Gumbo on page 13-15 to reference to help me to prepare my gumbo for Valentine’s Day. I am late posting the pictures. Scan AllRecipes for a similar recipe for Gumbo or go to your local library to pick up the book or purchase. I omit file (gumbo) powder because I could not find it. I do like the photographs I snapped of the gumbo dish…the color pop in the photos and make the pictures edible. I especially enjoyed hanging out in the kitchen with my family…YUMMY! Good times….
Tip: This is one of those recipes that you must do all the prep first before you even think about cooking it. It helps if everyone in the family participates in the preparation…otherwise you will be stress by the time your finish. No one should be holding a remote control while one person does all the cooking. Everyone should be in the kitchen together. The preparation and cleaning up the kitchen if you don’t have a maid afterward is the most work. Get all the slicing and dicing out of the way than rinse all vegetables. Wash pots and pans, scrub down counters and load dishwasher if available. Wash small items by hand…keeps your fingers clean. Have fun while making gumbo in the kitchen joined by your love ones. Freeze in containers for later consumption.
Optional serve with rice
