thanks Casey for the soups and tips. im also looking into some other stuff such as this etouffee you speak of. never heard of it. haha
@ others. thanks for the suggestions fro wines and stuff. I will try and look for them here and see if i can find the cheaper ones. I know i can get a bottle for about 8$ but if i could find cheaper that would be nice. Also, i do have cooking wines but they are super salty. Are cooking wines anything to shout about?
