We love kielbasa around here. Do you ever use it? I love how it flavors the whole dish! I know that traditional gumbo calls for okra but the only way we eat okra here in the SFFS house, is fried. So I left it out of this recipe. But...it was so good anyway. You gotta try this! You gotta!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
