While I am sitting here writing this post I can see the changing of the seasons. I know it is still hot, but the trees behind our house are beginning to turn from a crisp green to a golden-yellow. I love this part of the year, but I do hate to leave behind all the wonderful produce that the summer brings such as fresh sweet corn, squash, eggplant, watermelon, and two of my favorites okra and tomatoes. While I am a lover of okra simmered in water ( I know you either love it or hate it) I grew up eating fried okra ,too. Not the deep fat fried kind that comes with more crust than okra. We’re talking pan-fried in a little oil and butter after coating the okra with cornmeal. YUM!
