I wanted pork chops, my husband wanted burgers....sorry no pics on the egg (this heat wave gives me the vapors and I didn't take time to snap photos today) :blush:

I've got watermelon chilling in the fridge for dessert! Love summertime. :kiss:

My chop (and our new favorite side dish - fresh corn, ernyin, mater, and okra)...

    As always a great looking cook Elizabeth, Your chop looks wonderful but I opted for burgers myself. It's been a long time since my last burger. :)

    Easy, easy, almost too easy. 8 ears fresh corn, 1 1/2 or 2 sweet onions (I like Texas 1015 and Vidalia), 2 fresh tomatoes, and as much fresh okra as you like.

    I have egged the corn on the cob and find that I like the smokey flavor, but I also prepare it without egging. Slice/cream the corn, chop the onions, chop the tomatoes, and cut the okra to your taste - I prefer 1/2 to 1" pieces...

    Melt 3 - 4 tablespoons unsalted butter in a skillet, add the corn and onions - saute until onions are translucent, add the tomatoes and okra and continue saute until cooked to your taste. Add salt & pepper to taste. You can add water if necessary - or if you prefer cream that works too. (I don't often add cream, and really try to watch the salt, but every now and again if I'm taking the dish to work to to a friend, I add cream to give it a nice, rich kick).

    We really have come to enjoy this a lot - I'm planning to put some in the freezer this year, though I'm not sure how the okra will hold up.

    I'm really not a cook who frets a lot about amounts, etc. I just go with what tastes good to me, and every now and then I get lucky. I hope you enjoy this dish!
