Ina, that looks like a sponge sandwich!
Roasted Green Stuffed Bell Peppers and
Melted Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, on Toasted Bread Rounds, topped with Green Bell Pepper slices to look like Shamrocks
I'll just (very quietly) smuggle in some illicit poteen.
A curse on you Ina Okra is the best food to come from the garden
@Sheldon Scott , Pleaseeeeee remove your curse. I've had a couple of really bad years, and I'm counting on this year being worth at least smiling about.
Do you boil your okra for a long time. YUCK!!! My father liked it that way. Now I do like okra dredged in cornmeal and deep fried, or even pickled. YUMMY!!!
I first remember seeing okra as an unknown (to me) veggie in my Campbell's vegetable soup when I was a little girl. I spooned one out, and showed it to my mother, and she explained that it was called okra. I still had no clue what okra really looked like, since all I saw was a thin slice in the soup.
I never saw any other form of okra until I married Bobby a few years ago (well actually, almost 14 years ago, now). Since he is from Louisiana, he loves okra, and we used it when we had the cafe in Idaho.
Now, I really enjoy okra, and I put it in soups, spaghetti, and almost anything that has veggies in it. I saw that it can also be pickled, and have never tried that. I will eventually get a jar of that at the store, just so I can see what okra tastes like when it is pickled.
I fixed the curse so that it will be automatically removed when the first slimy pod of okra goes down your throat.
We boil, fry, pickle, put in soup, cook in a pot of peas, cook okra & tomatoes. Okra is good in lots of ways.
Since I mentioned the song earlier, I really ought to add my favourite version. This should get the dancing started...
Thank you @Sheldon Scott , I do love okra cooked in all those ways, but I'm sure you wouldn't just boil okra all by itself for a couple hours. The only thing my German father did was cut it up, and that just turned it into a slimy mess. I had to sit at the table all night a age six because I wouldn't eat that stuff.
@Yvonne Smith , I'm pretty sure you know how to pickle foods. Try putting the okra up in it's whole form, add some favorite peppers, and I like to add fresh cauliflower to it. Two or three with a little cheese and I'm full.
The plants are pretty. Ours grew between four and five feet tall, and they have beautiful yellow flowers. They remind me of sun flowers.
and Finger Sandwiches for all...
I've been overloading the alcohol a bit here, so let's have something a bit more sober. Barry's Tea is virtually Ireland's national drink (at least in a non-alcoholic sense) and a cup of that goes nicely with some Irish wheat bread. Wheat bread is slightly crumbly and biscuity in its texture. It goes well with just about anything. My first choice would be home made raspberry jam.
I will bring my camera and take pictures of everyone and everything. And I will bring this...
Gotta have green punch.
@Yvonne Smith , I remember that soup too! It was Campbell's Chicken Gumbo....
You were speaking of Mountain Dew?
Pretty cupcakes anyone?
I like the way the heart shaped candies together make a shamrock
I don't even know what this is but it looks good.
St. Patrick’s Day Parfait
Ice Cream Jello
I'd better see if I can get the creases out of this, then...
