Alton Brown says you don't need to stinking Okra.


But he DOES offer some less slimy uses for it.

Yeah, I know how it's pronounced. I didn't feel like looking up the special ascii table to enter the correct code for it.

Wal Mart didn't have Andouille. Nobody in the meat or deli areas even knew what I was talking about. I was running too short on time to stop in Meijer. If anyone in the area has it, it will be them. We don't have Kroger near here.

Walmart did have a nice looking cured sausage that I might try if I can't get the real stuff.

On a positive note, I woke up early feeling crappy with a headache and couldn't go back to sleep so I got up and decided to try my hand at making homemade biscuits from scratch. I've tried a few times when I was younger and they never turned out right, but this time they were great!

I had Beans and biscuits just like when I used to stay at my friends house. His family didn't have much money and were from the south. Dried beans slow cooked with ham. Just need to tweak the spices. It doesn't take much to fill you up on those!

Kind of reminds me what a Dominican friend of mine told me about comfort food and growing up. "I know what its like to be broke. I'm not giong to lie. But I never knew what it was like to be poor."

Mm, ch-okra. A coworker brings me fresh picked little ones that are great brushed with oil and grilled whole. Even my kids will eat them.
