Not bad a bad looking Gumbo there! You made the right choice by passing on the okra. If you don't nail it just right, the okra will give it a "slimy" texture and ruin a good gumbo for sure. As a natural born "Coonass" I have eaten my share of gumbo over the years, I still don't see the big deal about the okra, I personally think it takes away from the flavor.

Cheater note: You can buy "Roux in a Jar" (order online for all you fellas not in the south) and use that, making a proper roux is an art form and a burnt one will stink up the entire house something serious
When I do chickens in the winter time, I cook an extra one, just for a gumbo! C'est Si Bon
