my favourite homemade soup!

Potatoes
carrots
onions
corned beef

Chop and boil carrots onions and potatoes. Whilst thats is boiling get another pan and add two beef oxo cubes, two table spoons of flour and hot water and mix until a paste. Add this to the already cooked and strained carrots/potatoes and add more hot water . Then add your chopped corned beef and simmer and its absolutley wonderful for the cold weather!!!

Whats Gumbo?
Poor thing.... Bless your heart....

A typical gumbo contains one or more kinds of poultry, shellfish, and smoked pork. Poultry used is typically chicken, duck, or quail. Local shellfish such as the freshwater crawfish and crab and shrimp from the Gulf of Mexico are frequently used. Tasso and andouille provide a smoky flavor to the dish.
Gumbos can be broadly divided between the use of okra as a thickener, and recipes using filé powder in that role. Roux may be added to either, and nowadays it is quite common for roux to be the sole thickening agent itself. Mixing okra and filé is uncommon in Louisiana.
Another division in types of gumbo is between Creole and Cajun styles. Creole gumbos generally use a lighter (but still medium-brown) roux and may include tomatoes, while Cajun gumbos are made with a darker roux and never contain tomatoes.
