I have posted pictures of our Saturday feed. It turned out as usual, great time, too much food (take some home), and everyone showed up. We will do it again in 364 days. The first picture is of our dog, Emma, part German Short Hair Pointer and half English Spaniel. She is 2 1/2 years old and weighs 30 pounds. Fourth picture from the top,on the right, is my wife, Maria, talking to her Aunt.

Mike, when you cross that proverbial line, you better be able to defend it or there can be extremely dire consequences. And I believe that is what transpiered with Limbaugh. He must be having a hard time taking that shoe out of his mouth.
We used Mrs. Whitfields sweet potato pie recipe. She was from Savannah Georgia, one of my favortie towns to go chill out and do very little: write, drink, eat, walk, read, and talk to good folks. The pies came out to perfection. My wife's contribution to the tonight's celebration is to be commended. Since I have a friend that does not eat red meat,I seasoned the red beans with smoked turkey. Now that they are done, I sauteeed garlic added some tomatoes, let it reduce to intesify the flavors, added some Worchestersire sauce to the beans and let them slowly simmer for about an hour. Four loaves of ciabbata bread will round out the main meal. This is on heck of a celebration.
Lots of work, but everything is looking good. I will have pictures that I will load on this page next week. I am working on the roux at the moment. It is right before noon. People will begin to show up around 5:00 P.M.
I am slicing and dicing veggies today to make it easier tomorrow. I have 5 lbs. of cleaned shrimp and 3 lbs. of lump crab meat, 3 lbs.of boneless chicken breasts, and 2 lbs. of hot links. This is going to be a memorable Saturday.
@Pat B. Thanks so much for the wealth of information you have posted. It certainly gives me a deeper perspective and appreciation for gumbo and I will research out as I am curious and want to know more about gumbo yaya.
Today on election day Santorum has flooded Michigan with robocalls to democrats to vote for him to beat out Romney. I do take exception to this tactic. It is not in the spirit of having voters cast their ballots for what candidates stand for. It really casts a dark shadow on the sponsor of strategies that to me are underhanded, underminding the electoral process, and truly reflects desperation..

I urge all of you posting comments to respect all points of view and please no personal attacks on others. I have appreciated the dialogue on my blog and appreciate the interest it has generated. Let's keep the dialogue civil and show some restraint.
Re: rollingstone. Thanks for your cynical comments. It affirms the fact that people like you do exist and allows the rest of us to maintain sanity and allow for a civil discourse on what is best for America.
