The Turning of the Spit

Is it hot in here, or is it just me? Ow, Ow, OW!


A Gumbo Public Service Announcement for everyone: I am about to get roasted! Former ambulance man and current bon vivant Eddie Bluelights at Clouds and Silvery Linings has cajoled me into lashing myself to the spit for his Sunday Roast feature. I fully give Eddie his props, because you know how difficult (if not impossible) it is to put gumbo on a stick...but he did, so there I will be! 

Please set your reminders, the Roast goes on the fire this Saturday, June 12th at 10 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time, which I believe is 6 a.m. Eastern time in the US. I think. Ah, Google it...time befuddles me, often.

This is a real treat for me, because have you seen the list of past Roastees? Some fine company, indeed. I was delighted and honored to be asked, and I hope you can drop in for some roasted gumbo!

In other news, it hit me today that my previous post HERE was my 400th post. How in the world did that happen? Whew!

  1. Roasted gumbo? Do you have to put a lot of corn starch into it?

  3. Can I bring my own marshmallows? Cause where there's fire I like a little toasted sugar.

  4. Here's some crushed garlic, rosemary and sea salt - rub yourself down real well. I'll be waiting with the carving knife.

  18. I just came from reading the blog that you wrote about your daughter's birth. I left a comment there...but I wanted you to know that you penned your love for her so well, that I didn't want the blog to end... Incredible... Simply beautifully written.
