Slimy, yet satisfying

Yesterday I cooked okra for the first time in my life. And my kids ate it! Amazing. Simply amazing. And I loved it. It was tasty and super-easy to cook. (I just put it in some water and brought the water to a boil. Boiled it for a couple minutes. Drained the water. Seasoned it with salt. And served it to my children.) I was a little worried that my kids would balk at the texture. (Okra is rather slimy.) But they thought it was cool. Now, we have a new go-to veggie in our repertoire.

And I think we'll plant some in our garden this summer. I bet home-grown okra is even better.

Wow. That's impressive! I've had fried okra many times, but boiled okra was too much of a slimefest for me the one and only time I made it! :)

Totally amazing! Who would ever think your little picky eaters would eat okra? They are true southerners!

If you like pickles, it is also awesome pickled. My sister and I did Dill a couple of years ago, and we LOVED how it turned out.
