Let's Make Gumbo



Happy Ash Wednesday. If you haven't had your Mardi Gras celebration yet this is the perfect dish to help make you feel like you are dining in the middle of the Big Easy. I can't begin to tell you about how incredible my 2 trips to New Orleans have been with my mom. Food. Fun. Entertainment and Yum.

I have lots of family in Louisiana so.... they taught me right the first time...is what they say when it comes to making Gumbo.

Don't shy away from this dish because you think it's too hard. I'm simplifying it here for you.

He Scared Me To Death



Friday I went to my dad's house to spend some time with him. He recently was put on insulin. This was his 3rd day and he had been dizzy. He asked me to stay with him because my step-mom isn't mobile and she couldn't get around. My hubby was home watching the workers at our farm. I kept telling him I will be home with dinner soon. I ran 4 hours late and dad was throwing up profusely. I got a hold of his doctor and got him better and against my better judgement went home. By then my hubby said he couldn't wait any longer and had a bowl of cereal. When I got home he was laying across the bed. When I got there he moved over and I turned out the lights and turned on the tv to relax. Next thing I know there was a HUGE bang. Wade had fallen to the floor. At first I started laughing and said did you fall out of bed. After a few minutes he didn't get up. I knew something was wrong. His face was drooping and he was holding his head.


Fast forward and a bunch of bargaining and furniture and things falling all over the house from him stumbling and falling off the back steps I got him in the car to the hospital. I could get him to the hospital faster than the ambulance could get to me.
