Here is what it looked like -- before I ate it. Like many comfort foods, it is not "light" fare. I'm stuffed.

casey, I like those little okra nuggets. I've only seen them fried whole. Those look like they'd be fun to pop into the mouth.

Loved Shirley Temple! Another voice you either loved or hated. She always sounded mad at someone to me when she sang.

Those fried okra nuggets are also a Southern staple. You will find them on just about any meat-and-three menu down here. They would make a good snack food -- like popcorn shrimp, only okra.

Dinner was delicious!

As I was watching it, I thought she looked mad, too

CG and GG....I agree. She was probably told to look 'ferocious' when she sang about all those animals she ate in that particular song ....but I'd bet that she would have much rather been playing with her little friends and being a normal child, instead of having all those singing, acting, and dancing lessons. Sad, really. She did retire from acting at an early age, I don't think she was even out of her teens yet.

I watched "The Good Ship Lollypop" video on youtube before I posted the "Animal Crackers" one , and it was actually kind of creepy, IMO. It would never fly in this day and age.

Interesting story... maybe.

I photographed the last car she owned for an auction company. I think it sold for around 15K. It was a beige Mercedes 300E station wagon. It was bland, and it probably only got 15K because it was hers. It was a piece of crap. I had to drive it, and it quit running. It was summer, in Las Vegas. I had to sit and sweat while I waited for a tow.

So, I drove Shirley Temple's last car. That and 3-bucks will get me a cup of coffee.
