with Captain Kangaroo
Well, I did make the gumbo. We had one sad little boneless chicken thigh that I diced and cooked. Then I added some diced ham and some diced kielbasi sausage plus about a dozen precooked shrimp diced. I chopped some bell pepper and celery to add to the pot. Since I have an allergy to onion, I don't keep any on hand. I did have some salsa that Ella purchased the other day, so I added a glop of that. Hey, it can't BE gumbo with out the trinity of pepper, celery and onion. I had a can of whole peeled tomatoes that I also added. No okra so I used a rue to thicken it. I over thickened it so I added a small can of V8 juice which I thickened with a quarter cup of rice.
It may not be Cajun or Creole, but it was pretty good eating.
