NEW ORLEANS STEW

One of the most beautiful things I have seen and listened to during COVID-19 are the faces and sounds of the musicians of New Orleans. They come in every color, shape and size…they represent the United States of America, from ear to ear… www.lettersfromtheporch.com, a concert series supporting local musicians as they pay tribute to healthcare workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. As for this stew :-), it is a traditional New Orleans stew, lightened up on the amount of fat and sodium, but keep it hot with spicy heat!
