Karl’s Creole Gumbo II

Eilene is having friends over, so I needed something to feed hungry 20-somethings.

The basic difference between a gumbo and jambalaya is whether you pour the sauce over the rice or cook the rice in the sauce.

Karl’s Creole Chicken Gumbo

The kids are coming over this Sunday. Last week, Miriam and Chris requested gumbo with okra, a signature Louisiana dish. I used to live in Gretna, across the river from the Big Easy, so I became very fond of Louisiana cuisine.

Karl’s Filé Gumbo (Andouille, Chicken & Shrimp)

Miriam was working in Rome this week and she was coming back through Chicago. Needless to say, it took her two days to get back and she is exhausted. As a result, the kids are not coming over this Sunday for dinner. Instead of my usual feast, I will be making a gumbo, a Louisiana signature dish.
