Treating my man to a nice home cooked gumbo.
Ladies ,one thing to a mans heart is through his stomach.Not only does it shows your man that you appreciate him but that you also love him.
Now, I’m not saying that you have to be his mother or house maid. But, the majority of men, prefer a women that knows how to cook over a woman that doesn’t. Do you honestly believe, a man wants to be going out to restraunts or have take outs all the time? Sooner or later he will get tired of it. If not him, but his pockets.(unless he happens to be a baller)
If you don’t know how to cook,I suggest that you learn.
Gumbo: is a stew or soup that probably originated in southern Louisiana during the 18th century
Gumbo is often used as a metaphor for the mix of cultures that exist in southern Louisiana.The dish combines the culinary practices of French, Spanish, native tribes, and African slaves, as well as Italians and Germans.
This Gumbo receipe is so rich, and hearty, it will blow your mans,guests,friends or family brains out.
