Odds and ends

Saturday, August 01, 2020

Farm shares are done, but some items are available by order. We got South Carolina peaches, a big zucchini, grape tomatoes, and chives. There was a mixup with our order so we also got okra fresh from the field. I’m not fond of it, but graciously said thank you. I made fried okra the way my grandmother made it, and I have to say it was pretty good.

Husband and I went for a drive and saw a flock of roseate spoonbills and later, urban peacocks including a peahen with peachicks!

This was a much needed resty day so I have plenty to do tomorrow. Five more workweeks to go!

    How nice to have encountered those birds! Okra isn't very common out here in the west, but a friend from Alabama could make it edible, and in college, I met a man from Togo and he and his wife had me over for dinner. He served a stew with okra and it was delicious. Of course, I don't have the recipe. emoticon

    The only way I like okra is fried. I don't care for the texture of it cooked.

    Okra must be picked young or it gets woody. I only like it in gumbo, and even then, in small doses. emoticon

    When I was a newlywed, on our first visit my MIL asked DH if I liked fried okra. He told her it was my favorite. Not true but he wanted her to cook it anyway. It was my first taste and not my favorite but we've been eating it ever since. He has to do the frying, though. This year we didn't grow our own so I didn't have to eat it as often as other years.

    Sound like a great day. I have never had okra and would have no idea what to do with it, if I am right you can put it in soup. Am I right are way off. I didn't do a whole lot today. Did do a couple loads of laundry, and watched Denny, finish up with the leveling off where the barn stood. and did pick up a few little scraps of boards and concrete, that evaded the excavator. All that is left out there now is the excavator that Denny will come and pick up with his trailer, when ever. It's not in the road, so it can stay as long as necessary. It looks so great out there so nice and clean. Now we need a nice rain to help settle all the lose dirt.

    Hope you have a nice peaceful Sunday also.
