Ya dang tootin' I eat boiled okra! Also, steamed, pickled, fried, and frittered okra. There ain't nuthin' better in this whole world than a mess of fresh butterbeans cooked with ham hock, with fresh okra laid over them to steam in the last few minutes of cooking. DURNNN BOY! It'll make ya hurt yo self!
Snot rockets is also good chopped up with some fresh 'maters and onion, an' stewed till it's tender. Had that for lunch today.

Yup, if its on the table I can eat it.
Fried is better tho, and have you ever eaten any gumbo with some good cajun sausage and shrimp in it? Thats another good use for okra too.
Caution.... first time amatures may not be able to handle the spice tho.

I'm a damyankee from Maine, but while I was playing Sailor, I was stationed in Florida for 5 years and South Carolina for 3, so I had plenty of chances to try Southern Cuisine.

Don't like grits. No combination of condiments will make them edible as far as I'm concerned. Same with hush puppies. Never tried boiled okra, but I LOVE breaded and fryed okra! YUM! Biscuits and sausage gravy is another delicacy, but I dasn't eat it anymore, my doctor would have a conniption fit. They know some stuff about fixin' fish down theah too! Cornbread and black-eyed peas with chopped onions is a meal in itself.

Dang, now I went and drooled all over my keyboard...

Dear F-14
Screw the doctor. Do you want to live forever? You got to die from something, sometime. I say " Enjoy those biscuits and gravy. Lay off the guilt and the worry, that's what'll kill you. Have a beer with it too.

durn right i eat boiled or fried okra. sometimes have it with a big serving of grits. boiled okra is best cause it just slides down. gives me a supper idea. boiled okra with tomatoes and grits for dessert.

That give me and ideer too Hay.

I think I'll bile up some gumbo.

I had some of them boiled okra already today.

I'll check what all is in the fridge. I may even make some slumgully.

I heard them yanks talking about slumgullion the other day on here and it aint nothing like slumgully. It's whole different animal.

I think Fawteen got spiled to them blackeyes.

I like them blackeyes with onion in um with some good fresh cracklin cornbred and ice cold buttermilk or even iced tea is fine.

It just amazes me that some folks aint cultured enuff to enjoy the finer foods.

How can anything beat a thick steak (fresh, not from town), singed on the outside and blood rare inside and fried tatters, bisquits, washed down with thick, hot boiled coffee. Only seasoned with salt and fresh butter on the bisquets.

Now this man knows how to fix a steak the right way instead of burnin all the flavor and tenderness out. I like mine smothered in sauteed mushrooms.

Hay, you an my hubby would get along fine. As for me, slap that cow on the butt and throw it on my plate still mooin'. *G* (But make my bacon extra crispy please!)

Yeah I like my steak just barely past still being able to walk around.

To me when you "well done" any meat cut but pork it's too done and don't have any flavor.
