Daring Cooks-Gumbo-Challenge #4

Our May hostess, Denise of There’s a Newf in My Soup!, challenged The Daring Cooks to make Gumbo! She provided us with all the recipes we’d need from creole spices, homemade stock and Louisiana white rice, to Drew’s Chicken & Smoked Sausage Gumbo and Seafood Gumbo from My New Orleans: The Cookbook, by John Besh.

I was excited to see this month's challenge because it reminded me I had not made gumbo since I had returned from New Orleans last summer.  I've been making gumbo for years, so when I make it I almost go in to auto-pilot mode.  The gumbo is always a hit among friends and provides a few days of tasty lunches afterwards.  I especially enjoy now that I've been introduced to file powder. 

Below is a picture of my bowl of gumbo!  Enjoy!
