My Supper

I picked the first okra, tomatoes and summer squash from my garden tonight. You would think I'd make a nice healthy dish out of this combination....






Heck no... I opted for my favorites...


I fried the okra.....



And ate the tomato like an apple with a bit of salt. :)


It was sooooo tasty!

YD, I agree! :)

That's the way I like to eat a tomato...right out of the garden with a bit of salt. lol It's soooo tasty! :)

cowgirl said...

Mrs JP, I had planned on frying the squash too, but when I finished frying the okra I knew there was no way I could eat all of that! lol
I decided to save the squash for today. :)

Hey OTT, I couldn't agree with you more.
How are things in your area? Hope you are having a nice summer so far. :)

Hi Becky!

Okra smokra! ... Hmmmmmmmm Anyway, it's a love it or hate it food. Guess where I stand?? :)) Fried up like that, it sure does look good though. When I was a kid, we ate tomato's exactly like that ~ Straight out the garden with a salt shaker. Good stuff !!

Got 4 ears of corn and 8 chicken thighs, that have been marinading in Zesty Italian dressing for 4 hours, on the grill as I type :)

lol Bill, I take it you're not an okra fan. lol I love it fried and pickled...but usually leave it out of my gumbo.

Sounds like you will be eating well tonight! :)

Thats the only way to do it Jeanie. Healthy is boring, lol. I've never tried okra before, but it sure does look interesting.My tomatoe plants ar'nt growing any tomatoes yet, but some of the plants are looking pretty good. Hopefully soon I will be sprinkling a little salt on my own tomatoes.

cowgirl said...

lol I agree Mark. I have been waiting a long time for these veggies to ripen. Figured I'd at least eat the first batch my favorite way. :)
Glad to hear your tomato plants are doing well!
I still can't believe you've never tried brisket...and now okra. Don't listen to Bill...it's good stuff. lol
