Random Dinner

Since we are leaving for 4 full days, there were a few things we needed to use up so I changed our dinner plans a bit.

First on the list to use up: the okra that Vik gave us on Tuesday.

Okra fries was an obvious choice to me.


I tossed them in olive oil, sprinkled with roasting salt, baked at 400* for 20 minutes.

I had never had them before. I was expecting them to be crunchier? They were good. Just not what I expected.

Second on the list to use up: mushrooms.

I thought about making stuffed mushrooms but that was far too much effort. So I just baked them with the fries! I halved the (large) mushrooms, added 2 Tbls butter, a splash of white wine, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes. Baked them the same as the okra.


I felt like this was lacking something… anything. Surely I couldn’t just eat okra and mushrooms for dinner! So I opened up a can of kidney beans. 🙂


This plate was massive and over flowing. I knew I wouldn’t finish it and Jodus should be home at any time to work on the remains.


(Like how the lights are so effing bright you can’t tell where my plate ends and the counter begins? GR.)

I ate most of the mushrooms, about half the okra fries, about a third of the beans and I AM STUFFED. I don’t think I can put another thing in my mouth. (TWSS?)


Oh, and the sauce was BBQ + Tiger Sauce + Agave, microwaved for 15 sec. YUM.
