Every one has their own favorites and stories. Its just like smoking! There is isn't a wrong way just the way you are trying it today.

 

A couple more gumbos and you'll be telling stories too....... <chuckles> the more you hear the more you'll form your gumbo.

 

Personally I like a shrimp & okra or a chicken and okra gumbo, but I like okra. Course I like oysters and andouille, and crab, and sausage, and etc..... Man when you start making your andouille and sausage to your own taste just for jambalaya and gumbo, you just knock it out of the park!

 

Gumbo is like the old story of the traveling soldiers and the pot of rock soup.

 

Before you ask:

PS Captain Kangaroo told the story bestest!

Foam I think of it more as a stew,but whatever ya feel it is it is.All I can say is it is down right heart warming,comfort food.Thanks for the point I appreciate it

The first time my wife saw me put tater salad in my gumbo she thought I was crazy. That's the way it fought to eat it. Lol

You know I was in my 40's the first time I ever saw that done and believe me I had eaten a lot of gumbo all over the place. High School buddy told me about it while we were in Don's in Lafayette. I tried it and found I liked the way it breaks down in the gumbo with that creamy smooth texture and the you get a crunchy pickle or onion, I don't always have potato salad with my gumbo but I do enjoy it.

Hey Richie

 

Somehow I missed the plated shot.  Looks great--I love gumbo, especially seafood gumbo.   :points:

 

I totally agree with you about okra.  I tried it twice--once by me and once by a transplanted Texas boy.  Didn't like it much.
