You done good.
I always use okra in gumbo... don't care for the flavor of file’ powder.

Always a hit when I make it in camp in Grand Isle. Also doesn't hurt to have unlimited access to gulf shrimp at $2.00 a pound.

I could get foundered on a few bowls of that. We finally got some of the Conecuh sausage around here. Man that is some good stuff.

Looks fantastic!

Huge fan of gumbo.

Sounds like the fellas destroyed the batch with "extreme prejudice."
