Food Philosophy: When is Gumbo not Gumbo?
« on: June 27, 2012, 06:05:32 pm »
Ok, so I had the idea to make chicken gumbo.  However, I know I don't have certain items.  At what point does gumbo become soup?

So, in order of importance (I feel):

No okra
No Andouille sausage
No celery for the Trinity

However, I do have File powder, and I can make a damn good roux.

Aaaaaand GO!

Okra is cow food, not people food.
"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre."

So if I add beef, then I'm adding okra by proxy.  Genius!

Without okra, I'm not sure it's gumbo. But it would still be delicious.

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
