My old neighbor called. She is an older cajun lady, who our family just adores! Her daughter just got married, and they had a reception full of good old cajun food. She is giving me the leftovers b/c she and her husband will never eat it all, and she knew I would appreciate it. She was the one who taught us how to make gumbo in the first place. I made dh stop by and pick up some flowers for her as a thank you. SOOOO good to hear from her again (and we are not unhappy about the authentic cajun food either.) Don't you just love good neighbors? We really miss them. Cindyc.
