It’s that time of year again!
Yes, the weather is warming up and I am preparing to throw my annual Gumbo Party!
What’s a Gumbo Party?
Well, a Gumbo Party is a party that I throw every year before it’s too hot to eat Gumbo.
Because Gumbo can be heavy and spicy I really enjoy eating it in cooler weather and my Gumbo Party is a way for me to say “goodbye” Gumbo, I’ll see you in the Winter!
Note: don’t get me wrong on my “goodbye” to Gumbo because if the mood really hits me, I will crank the air up high and make a Gumbo in 110 degree weather in the middle of this hot Las Vegas desert in the summertime.
Yep, I am guilty of doing that many times and then feeling hot and stuffed for days, lol!
Back to our party.
What does one need to have the ultimate Gumbo Party!
Secondly, you need potato salad.
Yes, potato salad.
I know that’s a lot of food but I just can’t have a Gumbo Party without a big batch of creamy potato salad.
And don’t forget garlic bread!
It goes with the potato salad, lol.
It’s impossible to have a real party with one dish that’s why I throw in a couple of more dishes, it’s a southern thang!
We have our gumbo, side dishes, and desserts which means it’s time to PARTY!
Make sure you have plenty of hot sauce for your party guest and loads of sweet tea.
