It's crumpet's world, we just live in it

Life with Baby Crumpet continue to be pure bliss (with the occasional lapse into pure rage, but more on that later). She is eating well, sleeping well and pooping really, really well. Oh boy can't wait for her to start eating solid food.

She travels especially well. Just 2 weeks old and already she has been to Alki Bakery, Coastal Kitchen, Five Spots, Blue C Sushi, Starbucks and Top Pot Donuts. She has inherited mom's penchant for sleeping with her mouth open and her dad's habit of kicking away blankets. She also likes to eat, REALLY likes to eat. Hmmmm......

Did I mention we like to eat too? Made our favorite gumbo dish last night:

Sautee chicken, sausage & bacon. Set aside.

Sautee garlic, shallots, okra, tomatoes, celery & bell peppers. Set aside.

Mix everything together, add file, joe's stuff, kosher salt, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, cracked pepper, bay leaf, rosemary, paprika and chicken stock. Add roux. Simmer for, well, as long as you like (can be days, the longer it cooks the better it will taste. Gumbo makes an excellent left-over dish)

Serve with steamed rice and cornichon.

Watched Shark Tales. It was OK. Really liked Jack Black and Robert di Niro as sharks. Will Smith was a very annoying fish (and robot, and Ali, and cop...)
