See Ya in the Gumbo # 139 {potluck}

Ready for some gumbo?

My great grandpa said See ya in the gumbo! 
instead of "good-bye."
It means see ya out there in the mix.

Gumbo is a mix of various ingredients.  
And no two people make it the same way.
To "make a gumbo" means much more than cooking.  When someone says "I'm making a gumbo," it means family and friends are invited.

I invite you to join this POTLUCK PARTY every Sunday night.
Bring whatever mix of ingredients you'd like.

  2. Hi Michelle- Thanks for hosting and for featuring the Honey Balsamic carrots. They are really good and so happy your hubby liked them.
    My Gabe doesn't eat sweets and I have a gigantic sweet tooth, Whenever I make cookies he would have just one. Well, that didn't happen with the yogurt bars. He loved them! I finally found a dessert he likes!!!!! Hope your guys like them also.
    Have a great week and See Ya In The Gumbo next Sunday,

  15. Hi Michelle! Thanks for featuring my ice pops. We had a nice sunny weekend - they were great! This week I brought another summer staple: my homemade BBQ sauce.

  16. Michelle, thank you for the featuring - woohoo! Been under the weather since Sunday and woke up feeling better thismorning so now I feel better & happy!! I loved your photos and the gumbo actually looks quite good. I was on a tour boat trip in Louisianna a long time ago and they served gumbo that had everything they could find in their frig and freezer in it. Wasn't sure I would ever try it again but your recipe sounds really good. And I love that you choose not to mix just any old thing!!

  17. The Honey Balsamic Carrots honestly grabbed my attention. Congrats to all the great picks & all the yummy entries. Have a great week Michelle. x
