    Is Katy devoid of humour or something?

    Katy, ahead of her time…Adam, well behind the times.

    “The dog?” The dog’s name is Gumbo, and Katy may just add him to this…

    Louisiana Gumbo

    For 4 servings
    2 table spoons butter
    1/3 cup chopped onion
    1/3 cup chopped green pepper
    1/3 cup chopped celery
    1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
    1/2 cup diced okra
    1 1/2 cups canned tomatoes
    1 cup chicken broth
    2/3 teaspoon salt
    1/3 teaspoon sugar
    Few grains pepper
    Small pinch thyme
    Small piece bay leaf
    1 cup, scant, uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1 cup, scant, oysters

    For the rice

    2 teaspoons butter
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/3 cups water
    1 1/3 cups packaged precooked rice

    Melt butter in a large skillet.
    Add onion, green pepper, celery, and garlic.
    Cook until vegetables are lightly browned.
    Add okra, tomatoes, broth, and the seasonings.
    Cover and simmer 30 minutes.
    After the mxture has simmered 30 minutes, add shrimp.
    Cook 5 minutes.
    Add oysters and continue cooking 1 minute, or only until edges of oysters curl slightly.

    Meanwhile, for the rice, add butter and salt to water.
    Bring to a boil.
    Stir in the rice.
    Let stand 5 minutes.
    Fluff with a fork and serve with the gumbo, either is separate bowls, or spoon gumbo over rice in soup plates.

    Note: Eight to 10 ounces raw shrimp in shell or 4 ounces frozen precooked shrimp make 1 cup of cooked shelled shrimp for this recipe.

    Notes from me:

    Precooked rice, think Uncle Ben’s. But why not just make rice?
    There’s an additional column in the original recipe for twelve servings too. It’s not a straight multiplication.

    She’s not in the mood for humour, her Fancy Fanny, er Francesca is missing.
