Summer Feast


Honey Do and I shopped local this past weekend at the Farmer's Market.  We made a feast of fresh tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, corn, okra and yellow squash topped off with a sweet corn muffin.

I know...fried... but it was awesome!  We were full as a tick and happy!
I like to give my okra and eggplant a milk and egg bath then, I dredge them in self-rising cornmeal.  Fry in very hot oil and they don't absorb as much oil.  Season with salt.  If you can, fry outside in a cooker--- that way the smell, the heat and splatter is all outside.  Honey Dos are good for that. : )



"And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground--
everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so." 
Genesis 1:30 NIV Bible


  1. Looks SO delightful! I smiled when I saw your instagram picture...while we were nearby on the gulf coast! Sounds like you enjoyed it! There's not many summery things I love better than summer produce... YUM. {and thank you for the tips!}

    1. It was good! Hope y'all had a great visit! One day we'll have to meet up when you're over this way : )

  2. That looks great! I love okra, my friend's mom makes it when we visit her n Kentucky!

    1. I like it best fried. Usually this time of year, everyone is trying to give it away because they grow so much.
