Cajun Gumbo, : Millie's Notes: With gumbo you can use any meat you want.The foundation of any great Gumbo is the Roux. One thing that is in every great gumbo is okra. It is the thickener for the dish. If you live where okra is hard to find just sub. with a corn starch slurry added right before you add the shrimp. Gumbo is traditionally served over rice. I know this is a long recipe, but it is so worth the time and effort!
Krautburgers-Annette's : Also known as Runza's or Bierock's. These ground beef and cabbage filled dough pockets are a highly popular in these 3 states. In Nebraska where I am from there is a restaurant called Runza and although they are famous, there is nothing better than a homemade krautburger.
