    Grandpa Harry's Note:

    --A New Orleans specialty. What starts off as a wonderful creme of chicken soup, ends up as a fantastic gumbo with the addition of rice, creole seasonings, ham, and a touch of white wine!

      OMG! Elegant with panache! Came together quickly with precooked rice & chicken poached in stock. Good thing b/c we were chilled after surf fishing until dusk. Used Frank's Hot Sauce augmented with Tobasco Habanero & a blend of thyme, garlic powder, paprika & Lowry's seasoned salt for the creole seasoning. Used 1/2 the butter, flour & milk but soup thickened nicely. Definately will make again for guests but this pot is ours! Thank you Grandpa Harry for a "something special" recipe that is a keeper! edit - next time I will serve the soup "the first time" before adding the roux then make up 1/4 recipe of the roux for "the second serving" that way getting 2 texturally very diifernet & yum soups out of 1 batch.
