  • Hi Marsha, I saw your Gumbo Potato Salad recipe. It looks very good and it is similar to the way I make potato salad. I expected to see okra in your recipe since the word …gumbo…means …okra. Then I saw the connection of dropping a healthy spoon of potato salad into my bowl of gumbo. Great idea, never heard that before but perhaps I have led too sheltered a life? ?.
    Now I see that you live in Northeast Texas and so do I. I live in Anna, which is just North of McKinney. Please tell me where you live. I hope you are having a good week. ?

    • Hi Wanda, Thank you for stopping by. We live in Sulphur Springs, so I guess we’re neighbors! The potato salad is alot like what I make, too. Years ago I lived in Gulfport, Miss. The neighbor ladies gave me all kinds of Cajun/New Orleans recipes and this was among them. I tried it and it really does taste great! Stop by again when you get a chance.
