Bite of the Bumblebee

One of the generous restaurants who contributed dishes to World on the Square last Saturday was J. Gumbo’s, and one of the dishes they contributed was Bumblebee Stew. Also called Bumblebee Soup or Bumblebee Chowder, it’s called Bumblebee Whatever because it contains yellow corn and black beans. Here’s a video of how to make it. It’s very easy, and I might make it at home, except I won’t put as much hot stuff in it as J. Gumbo’s does. I also think they might put some sweet cream in theirs, because it looks creamy and tastes, you know, sweet. VERY good, though.

Just in case you don’t know, that song they’re playing during the video is Flight of the Bumblebee, written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. I have it as my ring tone.

And, just for fun, this:

WRITING PROMPT: What is your favorite piece of classical music? Any kind of music? Think of a dish that would represent it. Or your favorite bug, I don’t care.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
