Okrie-Dokie

Mmm! Mama brought me a half of a bushel of okra and a half of a bushel of tomatoes from Mr. Avery Holland's little carport produce stand yesterday.


I have been trying to decide if I want to freeze the okra or can it with the tomatoes. During washing and cutting the okra, I realized that I hadn't had anything to eat all day and it was 2:00 PM.


So--you KNOW I had to fry me some of the okra for lunch. Lil R and I really enjoyed it and it made me miss my mammaw's cookin'! That chick could fry her some okrie anyday and it'd always be gone. I still thank God for her everytime I break out my cast iron frying pan that she bought me a long time ago! Doesn't this make your mouth water?

A LOT of cutting went into this!

Now...what am I gonna do with all THESE?

Have a wonderful day!

At first I thought, "Oh, that beautiful cast iron skillet," and then I thought, "Oh, that beautiful okra," but then I thought, "Oh my goodness those tomatoes!" Don't you just LOVE summer? I'm posting tomorrow about fresh veggies too, caramelized green beans!
