    eman, I made this gumbo for the family last night and everyone loved it!!! My wife prepared the white rice and filled all of the bowls halfway with it, then, each person scooped the amount of gumbo that they wanted over the rice. After that, all I heard was praise! My parents even asked that I please invite them over the next time I make it. LOL! Thank you so much for posting this recipe up. It was my first-ever attempt at gumbo (which we love so much) and the last recipe I'll ever need for it!

    Just add extra chicken or sausage shrimp not critical to gumbo.
