Okra– many people do not like this vegetable. It is slimy, weird texture, and well, hairy. Yeah it has a hairy skin on it. I think this is why we, Southerners, fry these babies up. It kinda covers up any “weird” textures you might get. It is a good solution, but I want MORE! I want everyone to LOVE okra. I want it to be like a brownie. Okay not the taste, but have the “like-ability” of brownies 🙂
Speaking of food… I had just a fabulous date tonight 🙂 David and I headed out to eat after I got home from my internship. I have been kicking (so has he) since 4:45am so we are both tired and full of some good food now. We ate at Epiphany Cafe. SO good! We had pork butter (it is AMAZING!!!) with bread. It was just so good I forgot to snap a picture… sorry 🙂
As an appetizer we had this:
I am going to dream about the rest of the menu… we didn’t leave room for dessert but we have made plans to go back for the corn flake creme brulee. And home made “smores.” And gnocchi. Need I mention more? Haha so good and can’t wait to go back! They are a farm-to-table kind of restaurant and the farm we are a CSA with (Snowsbend) supplies some of the food! So cool– speaking of harvest basket…
Week 16 Harvest Basket
Speaking of okra… here is what I did for a quick okra fix. I did sesame oil and Old Bay seasoning!
They turned out great… I now have a new bunch in the fridge that I want to stuff… with a quinoa mixture. Or bake them with a quinoa mixture like somehow make a batter with quinoa and then bake them that way. Who knows I will (promise!!) let ya know 🙂
I am whooped from the CF games this week! But it was awesome!! I have many goals this weekend to achieve— I am thinking I need to go ahead and finish The Help so I can focus on my studies, because with the bookmark now at the halfway point… well it is just one you don’t want to put down!
Be positive about your veggies.
And do some reading.
Have yourself a good weekend.
