Summer Supper

Tonight, in honor of the recent solstice, we had a nice supper of summer veggies: Steamed broccoli, corn on the cob, sliced tomatoes, fried okra, and store-bought frozen rolls. Since I made such a stink about fried okra recently -- it is wrong to batter it, folks -- the right way to do it follows.

Fried okra, basically the White Trash Cookbook recipe. 1lb okra, washed and sliced about 1/4" thick, salted and peppered heavily; 1-1/2 cups corn meal; 1/3 cup oil in a hot skillet. Toss the okra in the corn meal in a paper sack or plastic bag or fruit jar or... Put the okra in the skillet and fry for 12-14 minutes, tossing occasionally. Drain on paper towels or on a paper sack. Serve hot.
