Mama's Gumbo - Red River Revel 2013
By Karen Keane. Performed at the 2013 Red River Revel by John & Karen Keane in Shreveport, Louisiana.
If you make squirrel soup, be sure to take off the fur first. It's not good if the fur's left on. Lol
Hey Robin and thanks. You could definitely substitute just about anything that you want in gumbo. Funny that you say that, because we had some squirrels chew through our cable line recently. I threatened to make some squirrel soup. LOL Just kidding...sort of. LOL
Fine job, as always, you two! And I think it's cool when the drummer is proud of his wife. :)
A cooking question: If I were to make gumbo, could squirrel heads be substituted for seafood? We've got lots of squirrels around here. LOL! The question is purely hypothetical-- I love watching the squirrels.
Thanks so much Roy, we appreciate it.
Thanks for all of the kind comments...she done good.
Thanks Ken and Steve. This song was released on our first CD, Dulcimer Stories, but I didn't include the recipe. I don't think I would have any takers. LOLHey Steve, gumbo is a traditional Louisiana dish. You make a roux, kind of a thick gravy made with flour and oil, then you can add whatever ingredients you want. The most common types of gumbo in Louisiana usually include seafood. It is traditionally served over rice.
Cool! Although I'm not sure what Gumbo is
Is that one of those throw in whatever you got sort of dishes?
Great song, Karen! Well done, you two, as usual. Up here in Canada not many people even know what gumbo is.
I use to love gumbo and blackend this and that, but the old stomach won't allow it any more. If you put in on a CD, include Mama's receipe.
Hee, Hee Edward, but this Louisiana girl, ain't going nowhere. LOLHa, ha Steph...it might melt the fork. LOLLove you sweetie. It sounds so much better with the drum part. Thanks
I hope that it isn't in bad taste for the drummer to be proud of his wife!
Thanks Patty and Dusty. Hee Hee Patty, sadly there were no takers on the recipe.
What a rollickin' tune! Any one else hungry?
By the way, did anyone want you to write out the recipe for them?
You did good!!!
Thanks Stephanie and Carrie. It was a great audience and we had a wonderful day!
