Teased us a bit last night, but finally produced this morning. Been raining steady for a couple of hours. Man, did we need it!

My dinner for one last night. Chuckeye with just-cut okra and tomatoes. Shoulda used cherry or grape maters, but didn't have them. Grilled them lightly and removed while the okra finished.

    Beautiful food, Mike. And glad to see the tots are still a regular feature.

    How's everything going? Any chance we'll see you at Eggtoberfest?

    Good looking meal. Don't think I've seen grilled okra before.

  • Hey, Buddy! Great news on the bride! She's a lucky gal. No chance at the Fest. BTW, naturally, the steak was TRexed! ;)

  • Barry:
    Saw this recipe yesterday in an old Southern Living. Salt and pepper, and oil. Pretty tasty.

  • Forget the okra, send us some rain !!!!

    Good looking grub, and I really like what I can see of your Austin Stone patio/kitchen area. We're having our garage rebuilt and I'm planning for the outdoor kitchen. Do you have pictures that show more of your area? (our house front is Austin Stone).

  • Looks great Mike. Rain makes steak taste better too.

    Here's our steaks last night:

    Wowwwwwwwww Mike, I'm impressed great cook & pics
  • Very nice Mike

    We had a contractor's rain this morning

    Nice little downpour from about 6:00 to 6:30 to knock the dust down :)
  • I liked it, but then again, I like okra period. Boiled, fried, raw, pickled.....I'm kinda the BubbaGump of okra. :laugh:
  • Got over 2" this go-around. It was great. Still sprinkling.
  • Was that just for you and Judy? Having birthdays can make you hungry, I guess. :woohoo:
  • Thanks, Bud.

    I like it fried and pickeled. Never tried it raw and don't care for it boiled. Think I'll try it on the grill. Thanks

  • Thanks, My Friend. Just trying to emulate you. ;)
  • Great way to start the day. Good weekend to you, Frank.
  • gee, I might even try the okra that way :P

    nice looking cook

    you DO need to post more, Mr. Lawn Ranger, sir B)
  • Oh Man that looks good.. Never tried Okra before. We don't get much of it (that looks worth eating) in grocery stores here. Like to try it sometime.
  • Thanks, Girl! Been busy, busy, busy!
  • Do it! If I could send you some fried okra, you'd be hooked for life.

  • LR, that looks delicious! :)

    Now send some rain our way. We were supposed to get some showers this morning, but it missed us.

    Just love the pics!
  • I'll work on it....Just for you.
