7 Things to Serve wth Seafood Gumbo

Recipes inspired from the characters of HBO's Treme series.

#7 includes a video with real cooks preparing a recipe from the cookbook inspired by fictional characters in the HBO series Treme´.

In the blogging world of writers, I’ve spotted a trend. Or maybe it’s a gimmick. Or perhaps a mantra.  Simply put — number it and they will read. Last week I viewed 10 Things to Consider When Revising Your Novel, 7 Ways to Build Writing Confidence, 10 Commandments of Successful Blogging, 4 Ways to Make Your Reader Stop and Stare, and 5 Tips for Going on an Online Book Tour (no need to pack for that trip).

My favorite is 7 Secret Weapons to Make You a Better Novelist — obviously these are no longer secrets.

Since the number seven seems to be the blogger’s favorite number, it must hold some listing magic. Here goes —

7 Things to Serve with Seafood Gumbo (with cool links)

  1. Rice – fluffy white China Doll grown and packaged in Alabama and prepared in a rice cooker.
  2. Chopped little green onions – the magical garnish I often forget to take out of the refrigerator because I’m so exhausted when I finally sit down. They’re not leeks or shallots, but really scallions.
  3. Crusty French baguette, sliced and baked with a topping of melted butter and Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
  4. File´ – there’s plenty on the market, unless you live in Kansas where my vegetarian son says it’s scarce. There are some unique flavorings offered, though, at these meat and specialty markets in Kansas
  5. Tabasco – from the magical isle of Avery in Louisiana
  6. Lemon IceBox Pie made with Eagle Brand condensed milk – sweet, tangy, and cold – the perfect palate finale unless you have time to make
  7.  New Orleans Pralines from a recipe inspired by characters in HBO’s Treme series and made in the microwave

I hope you’ve enjoyed the links and returned for the end, because the #1 thing every blogger should do is keep the reader interested and on the site. Thanks for reading.
