In A Pickle With Okra

image

I tried something a little different. Over the past few weeks I put up some pickles but this time I’m trying to make some pickled okra. I wasn’t sure of the recipe so I found one in an old cookbook. The recipe called for garlic, salt, dill weed, sugar and vinegar. I only had enough okra to do two jars so one is hot, I added pepper flakes and in the others just garlic and dill. Talk about smelling the kitchen up! Why didn’t I have enough okra to do more…because I love fried okra!

Thai Treasure!

I found a great little store close to work that sells everything Thai! Okay not everything but a few things I thought were pretty good finds. I have several teapots but none that I’m comfortable using for tea since they are old and have special meanings to me. This great family teapot was only 4 dollars! Yes its made in China, but if it breaks I can go back for another! I love looking through the spices and so many different vegetables and they even had oyster mushrooms that were fresh. If only I had a recipe! Next project will be to look for a recipe or ask for ideas at the shop.
