WHAT’S ON YOUR PLATE THIS YEAR?
If I’m gonna cook for 20 people,
it will probably be gumbo.
I was on Pinterest the other day,
and cooking for me, it’s a struggle like I said.
So I typed in, this is so sad,
I typed in “Healthy Meals for One”,
how sad is that?!
We had a party of 12 probably, the other night.
I would say I smoked 3 racks of ribs,
a couple of pounds of chicken wings,
and we made this like, this German
potato salad, like a warm potato salad.
We made a wild rice & mushroom
with sausage, it was pretty good!
And it’s kind of a thing in our family, and in my culture,
growing up from Louisiana, if you can make gumbo,
then, you are marriage material, that’s one.
Second of all, if you can’t make gumbo,
you are kind of excommunicated from the community.
So, you better make a good gumbo.
I typed it in, because I was like
hey, I’m going to be living with a roommate really soon,
and I’m like, looking for meals to cook.
So, I love doing that, we even made some dinner the other night,
and I was like, “Lord please, help me in this area”.
I like to put sweet potatoes with my gumbo.
So I probably bake sweet potatoes
and then you just mix it all up whenever you’re eating it.
You put the gumbo over rice,
and then you dip your sweet potato in the gravy,
and it’s delicious!
