Yummy things are ready to harvest…
Because we only had 4, we grilled the okra. And, then we had to fight over them. *drool* I love me some fried okra, but it is really good grilled. The only other way I like okra is in okra rice. Okay, so that’s a lie. I also like it in a gumbo. I do not like it stewed with tomatoes.
We also had to take care of a small garden emergency. Because the ground up here is so saturated, all of our tomato cages had fallen over under the weight of the fruiting vines. It was a mess. We had to stake up all of the cages. This would have been no big deal, except the mandibles with wings had a field day with my ankles. Despite the bug spray. I probably have West Nile now. Thanks garden.
Aly’s Okra Rice
- sliced okra
- rice cooked in chicken broth
- cooked bacon, crumbled (reserve the bacon fat)
Heat up a little of your bacon fat in a skillet and saute your okra in that. Stir the okra into the rice and cook it in the oven At 350 in a casserole dish for 15-20 minutes. Stir in your crumbled bacon.
I think I got that right. Aly is my sister. Hopefully she’ll chime in if I screwed it up.
