Mumbo Gumbo: A “Just Because” Gift

Mumbo Gumbo: A “Just Because” Gift


I got a “Just Because” gift right before Christmas and was conflicted about whether or not to open it right away. I asked the Glover Gardens group on Facebook, and 57% voted to open it.

So I did – I opened it! (Wouldn’t you??) It was a marvelous little gumbo bowl with a spoon.

White bowl that says Mumbo gumbo

I love it! This gift encompasses two things that delight me: gumbo and playfulness with words. Mumbo gumbo, indeed! That’s roux-ward worthy. 😁

The next thing I did? Fill it with chicken and sausage gumbo. (Wouldn’t you??)

This recipe is coming soon!

And folks, I’m happy to report that in making this batch of gumbo, I was finally able to document the recipe in a way that I *think* is shareable, that is, a way that isn’t mumbo jumbo and is repeatable by someone other than me. It’s coming soon!

I love my “Just Because” gift, and this post is the thank you note to its giver, Ms. WordsMaven (as she will be known here). Thank you!!!
