Wine Group

Please plan to join the next wine group event at the home of Fred and Deb Gatzke.  As usual, it’s a casual gathering.  Fred will be preparing his signature seafood gumbo! 

Suggested side dishes are offered below.  You should be able to locate recipes for any of these dishes on (simply search with the word “ Cajun” at the top of the site), or you may have your own “preferred” recipe website.  As an added “extra" for the evening, Deb and Fred will have their ping pong table available and Deb will be coordinating an April 1st Madness Tournament, and the winner will receive a prize.  Games will be played to a top score of 11 (rather than 21) to keep the games moving along.  If interested in being a part of this “Madness Tournament,” please email Deb directly at to be included on the tournament schedule.  If anyone is in need of a ping pong partner, Deb will match people up, or you may be partners with your spouse.  Bob Jackson travels with his own College Ping Pong Paddle, so beware!  

Side Dish Suggestions:

1) Cajun Andouille Sausage
2) Cajun Crab Dip
3) Mushrooms sautéed in bacon drippings
4) Broccoli and artichoke salad
5) Bean salad
6) Beet Salad
7) Cajun Cheese toast
