Well, not the first thing.

First you cut up everything. Andouille, okra, onions, celery and ham.

Then you cook the andouille

Then the ham

THEN make a roux. Which is not as dark as I usually make it. It was flipping hot and I didn't care to stir any longer

Add your trinity, though in my case it's a duo as I can't get the boy to eat peppers

Let that cook a min then slowly add some broth to your roux. Once mixed a bit I then add it to my bigger stock pot and the rest of the broth. I then add my okra. When that is almost done I add shrimp.

Cook a tetch more then serve with file over rice that your spouse was nice enough to steam for you. Meh, I didn't drain enough of the grease from the meat off so it's a touch greasy, but I certainly didn't care.

and we like bread with ours.

Earlier in the day, if you are a good woman such as myself, you ran out and picked fresh figs and made this for dessert, served with gingered whipped cream
