I love each season of the year for so many reasons, but one of the primo reasons that I love summer here in the south is all of the delish fresh veggies! We have a terrific local farmers market and C really enjoys going there once or twice a week. It seems that he is the one in town on the days the market is open, so I am pretty much at his mercy to bring home veggies that I will then cook! He likes fried okra, while I am a huge fan of okra cooked up with some mustard seed, cumin seed, coriander, onion and sliced tomatoes. I've heard folks say that okra is slimey, but even this Yankee doesn't find the okra in this recipe to be slimey. MMMMM: I love it! So, here it is sauteeing up in some olive oil with a Vidalia onion:
and here I've added the spices, some water and the Roma tomato slices. I like to let it simmer, covered, for a while.
We're also having grilled eggplant that I've marinated in olive oil and Balsamic vinegar.........and a small Prime Rib! We are cleaning out the freezer and will no longer buy any meat that is not GRASS FED! I am seriously thinking about going vegetarian, but I'm not sure that that is a promise I can keep!
I haven't shown you any pics of Barker lately, so I thought I'd slip this one in. The longer he is part of our 'pack', the more we love him...........he will be seven in October, which I find so difficult to believe!
Hope you've had a great day!!
