See Ya in the Gumbo # 72 (potluck)

See ya in the gumbo!

My great grandpa said this 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.

Last week's features:

There is a tie for the most clicked link last week!
Creamy Tomato Basil Tortellini
from Learning the Ropes...One Recipe at a Time
I already bought what I need to make this later in the week.  Guess I wasn't alone in thinking Erika's pasta would be a winner. 

Avocado Bacon and Eggs
from Steak N Potatoes Kinda Gurl
Desi always has creative things to share.  It may be a new combination of flavors.  It may be a new way to package ingredients.  See for yourself.

Fried Prawns with Garlic and Fresh Basil
from Kitchen Flavours
Joyce explains that in Cantonese the word for prawns sounds like laughter.  She made this happy dish for Chinese New Year.  It looks so good, I'm sure I'll want it all year long.

Hot Doritos Bake Dish 
from Turnips 2 Tangerines 
Lynn rounds out the most-viewed links with a dish she whipped up for a potluck with things she had on hand.  Looks like a family-pleaser to me.   

My pick of the week:

Caramelized Banana Bread
from Hun...What's for Dinner?
Cindy's entry sounds like Bananas Foster in bread form.  And I like the sound of that.
