See Ya in the Gumbo # 153 {potluck}

I'm running late today.  
Spent the weekend in New Orleans at Gretna Fest 
and eating roast beef po'boys.
I know.  
You feel so sorry for me.
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.
