See Ya in the Gumbo #78 {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.

Your Top 5 from Last Week:
Cauliflower with Potatoes
from Couscous & Consciousness 
   Last week, Sue shared the first Indian dish I ever tried.  Looks like others were interested in this dish as well.   
Cauliflower with Potatoes 1

Bacon and Tomato Spaghetti
from Learning the Ropes...One Recipe at a Time
Erika's easy pasta dish would make a nice weeknight meal.

Easy, Yummy French Toast Bake
from RV Life and Food
I'm going to tell you right now that big, fancy breakfast is something I have trouble with.  I am not a morning person.  Apparently, Terry feels the same way.  Her French Toast Bake is do-able for a sleepy head like me.
Zucchini Lasagna
from My Turn (for Us) 
Not only does Evelyn use zucchini in place of pasta in this lasagna, she uses grilled zucchini.

Green Vegetable Medley
from Soup Spice Everything Nice
Last week Denise shared what looks to me like the perfect Spring side dish.   

My pick of the week:
Chocolate Almond Pear Pudding Cake 
from The 21st Century Housewife
I found it difficult to chose a dish.  There were so many varied dishes shared last week.  In the end, moist, gooey chocolate cake was hard to pass up.  Plus, April's use of the word "squidgy" won me over.
