A few weeks ago when my friends and I went to the seafood market in Kemah, I bought some andouille sausage to make gumbo, but the people at the market told me they had no filé to sell me because there was a shortage due to the pandemic. Seriously, y’all? A shortage of filé? I suppose lots of people are staying home and making gumbo, but still…
Today my MegaFriends came by bearing the gift of filé. I’m so happy!!! I will order everything I need for a good gumbo in my next Instacart delivery. The weather’s chilly, so it’s the perfect time. Gumbo for Christmas!
Also, I finally unpacked all the moving boxes!
