This is sooo good!!!

This is sooo good!!!

This is going to be the  last of tomatoes and okra for a while.  At least fresh!   The Alabama girl gave me this delicious recipe.  She and I taught together for 3 1/2 years.  She is a great teacher and a great cook.  I miss her terribly,but that is another story.  Anyway,  last year we had a potluck dinner and she brought this dish and I am going to share it with you.

I get fresh vegetables from the CSA in our area and had a pound of okra to work with.  If you do not have fresh okra frozen will work.
