happy mardi gras

March 8, 2011

In honor of Mardi Gras: A gumbo recipe.
I can just hear our grandmother [Mimmi] re-telling our family the infamous story of how her sweet husband told her he was bringing a friend home from work for dinner one night. Well, she didn’t have enough food so she marched into the backyard [with only one bullet], shot a squirrel, and served him right up on the dinner table.
So, who wants to try some?
