I woke up to discover Ruru and Gigi eating some food that Ruru had made: normal Southern food including potatoes, fried okra, cornbread, and corn, you know the drill by now. I had some potatoes and then scurried out into the humidity of Alabama to go to work in an un-airconditioned store.
After I returned home from work, I took some of the okra, corn, and cornbread put it in a non-stick skillet, salted it well, and fried it all more heavily. Ruru didn’t brown the fried okra, and everything was cold by the time I got home anyway.
The result was uber-yum.
It’s amazing how simply cooking something a little longer can change the entire flavor, how adding a little salt can bring out all the flavor, and even more amazing that I bother eating corn at all.
Now, children, go and get ye your nosh on!
