  1. Absolutely yes to all these dishes, especially the fried okra!

  2. Never tried okra fried like that πŸ™‚ Since I’ve never been a big fan of it (but slowly warming up to it) – I should give it a go as I was planning on making some stew w/ the okra I have tonight!

  3. The fried okra looks very good and I’ve always wanted to try fried green tomatoes. Nice spread,…not for the faint hearted πŸ™‚

  4. I really need to get around to trying fried green tomatoes.
