Ha ha, we are sure walking similar paths these days. I got home from the hospital early today but still don't want to cook, specially just for me.. I thought I would order a pizza from the restaurant two block down the road. DH used to be the pizza cook there and the house special is incredible!

As soon as I get home from work I'll make use of some hot Italian sausages I have left over from the other night. I'll probably grill them stovetop and make some sandwiches.

Last night we had a delicious impromptu "Jambalaya", utilizing a box of Zatarain's new "low sodium" Jambalaya rice mix, a package of sliced Jalapeno chicken sausages, some corn cut from the cobs of some leftover market corn we enjoyed the other day, & some lovely fresh organic baby green & burgundy okra from the farmers market. Green salad, of course!

Just rinsed it off, trimmed off the stem end, sliced it up, & tossed it into the Jambalaya about 10 minutes before end of cooking time. It was delicious & fresh-tasting. Cooked, but still firm. No slime - lol!

Shrimp in a white wine/garlic/butter sauce, with steamed asparagus and brown rice. Homemade blueberry swirl ice cream for dessert.

I think the key is that when I add sliced okra to other dishes, I always slice & add it no sooner than 10 minutes before end of cooking time. Stays in shape & doesn't seem to exude as much "juice".

Now if I'm "stewing" it, like with tomatoes, then I add it whole, in which case I do add it earlier in the cooking process.
