This week, the Saturday Soup is all about me eating this soup. Often. As many times as I can in the span of a couple days. It’s the Seafood Gumbo at Herby K’s in Shreveport, Louisiana. We’re here for the wedding of two really wonderful people…and we’re also the official wedding photographers. It’s a fun trip that’s made that much more special by the fact that I get to have a couple bowls of this gumbo. With some rice dumped in. And some crusty french bread on the side. And a big frosty draft beer. ‘Cuz that’s what you do here. It’s what *I* do here. Lots of people eat the signature sandwich called The Shrimp Buster. John T. Edge said it’s one of the 100 Southern Foods you should eat before you die. I’d add this gumbo to the list, too.
The week started off with an early morning message on Twitter from Keiko letting me know that this little ol’ site was mentioned as one of the 50 Best Food Websites by The Independent. What the what!? Holy wow. I was floored…and flattered. Seriously. To be in the same group as Elise and Katie and Keiko and a whole mess of awesome websites – pretty incredible. Thanks to those that thought to include me!
Since I’m off eating my weight in Louisiana gumbo and letting someone make soup for me for a change, I thought I’d include some links I’m loving right now – wonderful summer soups I can’t wait to try when I get back:
