Gumbo = LOVE

"Its in the Kitchen where the warmth of the shared memories, laughter, and life create a recipe that spans the generations"

  There once was a sweet little family who wanted to make a big pot of homemade Gumbo. Mama and kids wanted to surprise Dad when he got home from a long day at work with his favorite meal. The weather was finally cooler outside and school was out for a holiday....
They got out their favorite cook book and got to cooking...

Little Teller took over the celery chopping 

And Harrison was put in charge of the french bread.

Lots of nibbling went on :) and an amazing Roux was created!

Mama Katie sure can cook! And knows any self respecting gumbo can only be made in a black iron pot.

Teller approved! 
The kids had a blast and memories were made while in the kitchen together
Even Baby Sims got to help! 

Dad was surely going to be impressed!
 Gumbo = Love

The End.

Big thank you to The May Family for modeling and to photographer Heather Land for this fun (and authentic!) photo shoot in our new Seafood Gumbo tees. 

When I think of Gumbo, a whirlwind of memories pop into my head. Some great ones like Gumbo at a wedding and some sad ones, like dropping off Gumbo for a grieving family. I only make Gumbo from scratch and it normally takes a few hours. If I have ever made you gumbo, please know that it was made out of love with Every. Single. Chop of onion, bell pepper, garlic and celery. I read this quote by author Molly Harper earlier and made me think of the South and Gumbo....
"Wait until you meet my family. At Thanksgiving, we kill everything we can find, put it into a pot, and call it "holiday gumbo"

The Hunt for Big Chuck.....

There once was a very cool Mama and a very hip little girl. They loved to go on adventures together.

The mom was a free spirit and the little one was her mini me.

One weekend, they picked up two brothers along the way
and went hunting for Big Chuck.
 There were rumors that he was hiding in the woods in West Monroe, LA. Would they find him??

They searched high and low. One of the boys even found a foot print that they thought could of been Big Chucks...
Through this journey, a sweet little friendship unfolded.

She thinks she might like him.

Although Big Chuck wasn't found that day, it was a day they would never forget.

The End.
