Okra Anyone???

Who would have thought that this California turned Georgia girl would ever like Okra...why in the world would anyone like that weird slimy looking veg from the south??? Thats what I always thought and from talking with some friends I'm not the only one.  But I'm serious when I tell you I have found a new love and can't stop eating the "slimy stuff".  Haha!!  Although don't worry when you cook it like this there is no slime

Once again Fresh Harvest has introduced me to a new seasonal veggie in my weekly basket and given me the little nug in the right direction on the proper fixins of this interesting looking veggie.  If any of you bake your broccoli in the oven this is basically the same exact process of drizzling with olive oil, sprinkling with salt and pepper and baking until done.  Oh so good!

Here's what you'll want to get and do...

Watermelon Cucumber Salad

If I haven't mentioned the amazing Farmers Market delivered to your doorstep service...shame on me.    Fresh Harvest is by far the best company I have come across in Atlanta to not only provide the most amazing hand picked LOCAL seasonal fruits and veggies but to deliver it directly to your doorstep in their reusable "baskets".  They pack it all perfectly in plastic storage bins on ice blocks so that if it arrives before you get home no worries.  You can also add items easily by customizing your basket with things like local Georgia cows milk (yep the kind with the cream on top...nothing better), lemons, bananas, pickled okra...and the list goes on.  I love the element of surprise to see what the picks of the week are and how it is teaching me to know what grows naturally at different times of the year.
