    Virginia Cherry Blossom's Note:

    Very simple, easy and delicious Gumbo. First gumbo I tried and we have made many times with family and friends. Recipe was originally given to us by another friend! Note: We normally make this on the more bland side and then keep a bottle of Tabasco sauce around to spice things up to our liking!

      DH and I made this today for lunch. It was easy to prepare, but we found it to be a little on the plain side. Extra hot pepper sauce helped a bit. I used red bell pepper instead of green, as that is what I had on hand. I also used leftover grilled chicken that had been coated in spice. Used a little extra shrimp and French thyme. Made for ZWT5.
