Myth of the One-Pot Meal

The winter solstice officially introduces the length of nights and shortness of days.  Translation: cold nights, cold days.  The one pot meal -a fusion of flavors, proteins, vegetables and herbs- is the simplest, quickest approach to warming up the self or family for winter.  This is not so true in the Stanford household, long-time family-friends of mine.  Theresa Stanford allowed me into the kitchen one night for uncensored access to her family gumbo preparation.  She didn't relinquish the recipe- some things have got to stay secret; only these few images of that process remain, besides the joy my stomach got from consuming it the next day.

Some warmth in the process of cooking.Sausage is actually first baked in the oven, then drained of grease. Makes for cleaner taste. And the pot buildup on the side signals beautiful flavor marriage.

Speaks for itselfAlmost there.Potato salad is an indelible accompaniment for this gumbo
