What's a good gumbo recipe?
I do not want a seafood gumbo, I'm don't like crab or lobster all that much I used to live down south and I miss southern food I'm 16 so I don't remember all the places
Where can I find a list of southern food?
I currently live in Maine so I can't get craw fish I'm literally 4 miles from the Canadian border
