Slimy Goodness

I've had a bag of okra and some shrimp sitting in my freezer for a while! So, last week after my peds test, I pulled them out and made okra, tomatoes, and shrimp along with cornbread. Honestly, one of my favorite things about this is the sliminess of the okra! I know...I''m strange! It was very good and ended up hitting the spot the next day when I woke up with a sore throat. No escaping the germs when you're around sick kids all day! Anyway, this is a great way to get some antioxidants and, thus, is my entry to Cate's ARF Tuesday. Check out the other great recipes there. Okra, Tomatoes, and Shrimp (not so much a recipe as an idea!)
1/2 bag frozen, pre-cooked shrimp, thawed
1 bag cut okra, cooked and drained
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 tomato, diced
After cooking the okra and thawing the shrimp, put the tomatoes and shrimp in the pan with the okra. Then season with some salt and pepper. Enjoy with some rice and cornbread.

I'm trying to grow okra this year. I've heard there's nothing like a few pods fresh off the plant. We'll see...so far they don't seem to like our cool temps.

BTW, Happy belated blogiversary!

I like okra too. I don't think it grows so well in the Northwest. Your dish looks delicious.
