The real secret to making this, is to crank up some Cajun tunes, sharpen your knives and get out the iron cookware. I had a ball doing this on this rainy day!! I've always hated gumbo because of the okra factor, so I was thrilled to find this recipe. Loved making the roux, it was just fun to cook something that is more or less an art form. (The article about it on this website was a huge help!) Only place I deviated was the shrimp, and only because this was my first attempt and if I botched it, I didn't want to be out chicken, sausage AND shrimp. Next time there will be shrimp, and there WILL be a next time. And it will be a side dish at our shrimp boil party this summer.
