Right now, I'm in the midst of a cooking project. I'm making chicken sausage gumbo. I've poached chicken, made a quick broth, chopped veggies, browned sausage, stirred up a good roux and set the gumbo to simmer for an hour or so. There are few things I enjoy more than making food, and I'm grateful for the time to do it this morning. I'm also thankful for the sweet memories I associate with the smell and taste of gumbo: especially holidays in Louisiana with my Memaw.
