Looks like some nice cheese ravioli with some extra large gulf shrimp tonight!

I just haven't gotten hungry enough to start making it yet. :D

Sounds good. We had a roast with potatoes and carrots yesterday. I sent the leftovers home with my son.

Having family over tomorrow, so need to get going and make the dessert..,,how I'm getting out of making dinner. Besides, SR is a very good cook.

Interesting. I read an article on milling wheat. I really didn't know there were that many different kinds of wheat to choose from.

I prefer hard white Montana grown. Higher elevations produce a higher protein content.

Do you do it by making a roux or do you just add file powder? And do you put in okra! :D I love okra!

I use a frozen seasoning mix, okra and a store brand gumbo base powdered roux. I also cook gumbo crabs to make stock. 1 # Crawfish tails with the fat realy give the gumbo a great taste. My SIL cooks gumbo without okra; I won't eat it.

My stepson brought me some red beans and rice and I gave him some gumbo.

Have you done it the hard and messy way yet!? Its fun stirring a roux for 20 minutes and have it burn, throw away and start again! :D

It's so cold today and supposedly lots of snow headed this way, so I made some home made chili with ground round. It really hit the spot.

I have done it the hard way but as I have gotten older, the easier the better. I used a powered pre-packaged roux name Larry's this time. It was very dark. Think I will try Tony Chacheres next time with chicken & andouille sausage.
