This ceramic bowl is precious to me. In 2000 while at the Dollar Store I saw this large bowl as part of a set. I purchased 8 each, dinner plates, lunch, pasta bowls and large soup bowls. You will be seeing them soon! What a bargin!
1In a heavy Dutch over, heat oil. Add the flour and stir and cook until the mixture darkens to a brown color, about the shade of peanut butter. Add the celery, onion, green bell pepper and garlic and saute until tender.
2Whisk in chicken stock, add the ketchup, chopped tomato, and okra. Let simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. About 10 minutes before serving time add cooked chicken, crabmeat, shrimp and the can seafood. Add lemon juice, hot sauce and worcestershire.
