Gumbo on the run

Sounds good. And when you want to economize and make your own, do what I do: From Amazon (eligible for free shipping if you have Prime), get 12 boxes of the best gumbo base in the world, Zatarain's, for $22: http://www.amazon.com/Zatarains-Orleans-Style-G... I use a third of a pkg for two people and cut water accordingly; just add water, five or six boneless/skinless chicken thighs, 10 shrimp, sausage, and diced eggplant and tomatoes (I don't mess with okra, and believe me, you don't need to). Cheap. Cook some rice. You're good to go. These boxes can be stored and used over years, or have a big gumbo party and use more than one box per every few months. It's delicious. I bet lots of restaurants use this base.
