SSSHHHH!! Don't tell my hubby about these links!! Granted I have to point out the color of peanut butter, cocoa and such for him to know what I want, but it is working!!!!!! This thread reminds me that I need to make up some gumbo before I go away for a week, for him. Remember, he isn't allowed to use any pans outside of one little skillet!!!!! So it has to be re-heated in the microwave.

it's not quite gumbo season yet, but here are my 3 my biggest secrets...

1. make your roux with bacon grease, or with no grease at all.
2. make a good shrimp-based seafood stock that has simmered for hours.
3. make the gumbo a day ahead... the best gumbos have "rested" at least 12 hours before eating.

i'm totally off-track with this post... why oh why did you have to mention, "gumbo?"

Shunka, I would say you're mean, but, I do the same with my BIL. One skillet and one knife. If he uses my good knives and pots/pans, he's in a world of .... stuff!

LOL!! I know I am mean BJ but this man cracked one of my best cast iron skillets 20 years ago!!!! How he managed that, I have no idea as I was the one bringing home the bacon back then, lol. BC, I always use bacon grease or at the least real butter for the roux!!!! Same with the stock; I save all shells, etc just for this reason. I have never been to LA but have some friends that have tried my recipes (I just go by handfuls) and they have told me that I am so close to authentic that I must have lived in LA in a past life. That makes my day to hear that!! Especially seeing as how I am born and raised in AZ!!!!!! A co-worker of hubby's is from LA and he along with his wife love my GUMBO!!!! To me that means soooo much!!!

this was nothing compared to the fight over who made the best red beans & rice... they've been arguing about that since the day they met 40 yrs ago.
