Cold Weather * Shrimp & Okra Gumbo

Good Morning! It’s about 45 degrees in Louisiana and all our Snow has melted. The only thing you can count on is the quick change of weather here. Next week will be back in the 7o’s . But for a little while it will fill like Winter. With all the joys of living in a house that’s a hundred years old & impossible to heat. We just bundle up and live with it.  Lisa
