Changing topics, Doodle asked that we make tomatoes and okra. It actually turned out pretty good for not really having a recipe. We used the okra out of the garden, some chicken sausage and canned tomatoes from Doodles mom. (YUM) A couple of the okra had gotten way too big and were chewy, but I am learning when is the optimal time to pick them. I still think they are gross to touch, all snotty and slimy... I digress.
After adding the tomatoes, we let it simmer until it thickened.
We made rice to go along with it, I was very pleased with how it turned out and so easy!
Finally, the deck is still a work in progress, the deck boards are on, minus two, I will get some pictures this weekend and hope to go shopping for patio furniture as well.
