Let's get one thing straight. I could not care less about who wins the Super Bowl this year. The Southern Girl in me, though, has me to root for the New Orleans Saints, the southern team in the tie-up.
In honor of my friends and family with ties to New Orleans, I shall be cheffing up a pot of gumbo for Sunday's showdown and will serve it with a side of Hurricanes. I think I'm an OK gumbo chef but Mr TBS says I'm being too self-critical. I only make it a couple of times a year but when I do, it's most always a therapeutic experience. Here's my gumbo recipe. The only variation are that I opt out of the okra and use shrimp or chicken stock in the absence of a turkey carcass.
I made the recipe a couple of Thanksgivings ago and it's been a mainstay since. I usually have most everything on hand to make it and try to keep the pot under $40 (which can sometimes be a challenge)
What will YOU serve on Super Bowl Sunday? Will you watch the game?
