Back on the home range

Sweet spouse Linda said, as she walked in this evening, "The house smells like New Orleans." No wonder this marriage is in its 28th year.

And yes, we'd spent a couple hours this afternoon making roux, sauteeing mirepoix and very slowly blending it into a gumbo that has slowly simmered down to something resembling what we've been eating for the past 5 days in New Orleans. This was my dinner tonight as Linda was out with a friend. The gumbo will be on tomorrow night's menu with Alaskan cod and a salad of cherry tomatoes...
