The radishes were so fresh when I shopped today their leaves were perky. The baguette was hot from the oven when I plucked it from the basket. With good butter and salt at home, I couldn't resist. Such a tasty treat for so little work.

Fire grilled burger Pattie, no cheese, no bun, with dill pickle slices, and sliced sweet onion. Ketchup was the condiment.

I made bruschetta with fresh tomato. I took all the seeds and gel out and sliced it into strips. I grabbed some fresh basil leaves off of one of my basil plants. I toasted some slices of wholegrain baguette and rubbed them with garlic. I topped the bruschetta with some shaved Parmigiano Regiano. I almost forgot the EVOO. I took one bite and noticed they weren't quite right. I got the EVOO and splashed some on and it was perfect. It was odd that I didn't notice the EVOO when it was there and I was paying attention, but I sure noticed when it was missing. I planned on taking pictures, but, once again, I was too eager to get to eating to remember.

As with everyday routine, my today's snack also had a piece of egg, a cup of coffee, toast, some nuts, and bananas.

Some usual leftovers, and tomatoes, as always, but he only cooking I did today was about 5 days worth of okra (I'm getting more each day now, when I go out and pick the pods that are large enough). I come in and put them in a qt bag in the fridge, and yesterday, I had to either start a new bag, or cook what I had, so I made a simple snack with it. It's a dry curry, por sabzi, to which I added some nam prik pao, which is just some garlic, shallots, and hot peppers, caramelized in oil. This version is compatible with many cuisines. The original recipe has chopped cilantro, which is also good.

Okra Sabzi

3 c cleaned okra, cut into 3/4" pieces
2 tb oil
1 tsp whole cumin seeds
1/4 tsp asafoetida
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Kashmiri or mild Numex chili powder
1 1/2 tsp coriander/cumin powder
2 tb chopped cilantro
salt to taste

Heat oil in large NS skillet on medium heat, and add cumin and asafoetida. Add until sizzling, and add okra, and cook about 8 min, stirring frequently. When browned some, add the remaining spices and cilantro (or nam prik pao, noted above), and cook another 2 minutes, stirring most of the time. Serve hot, with salt sprinkled on - needs less salt on surface, like this.

We had Jamaican style patties as a late snack. They were yummy.

Since we behaved ourselves last night, tonight we splurged. I made floats with orange pop and vanilla ice cream. Tastes like a creamsicle.

Here's a snack I had today, the recipe I got from a guy on another forum. The original recipe called for baking 15 minutes @400°, then tossing, and baking 10-12 minutes longer, but I didn't want to be firing up my oven in this weather, so I heated up my pizza stone in my grill! And last night, I started the dough for a batch of rye bread, to bake in the grill, since I'd be heating it up.

It is super easy, since I had some red curry paste in the freezer.

4 c okra, cut into 3/4-1" pieces
1 1/2 tb oil
1 tsp minced ginger
2 tsp Thai red curry paste
salt to taste

Preheat oven or grill to 400°. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and mix thoroughly, to coat the okra. Spread out in a shallow 10x15 pan, and bake/grill 15 min, then stir, to turn over as much as possible. Bake another 10-12 min, until well browned. Taste for salt - will depend what's in the curry paste, what it needs. Serve immediately.
