Archive for the ‘Vidalia onions’ Category

All of you guys know I am NOT a cook. However, I do enjoy making summer dinners. These are veggie meals with little or no meat. Rumor has it I do make good fried green tomatoes and fried okra, but on this meal I had to choose okra. Can’t have too much fried, you know!

I cut up 3 squash and sauteed them in butter with a cut up Vidalia onion. If y’all haven’t had a Vidalia onion before, then you are missing out. They are incredible! We eat them all through spring and summer till they quit selling them at the store. Make sure the label says Vidalia or you’re not getting the “real” thing.

My fried okra is just cut okra dipped in egg then in a mixture of salt and pepper and flour. I put it in a gallon Ziploc bag and do the hokey pokey and I shake it all about… then it is good and ready for frying. Ninja Man tries to get me to use peanut oil but it really affects the flavor so I just fry it in canola…

The cornbread is just mixed from cornmeal with a tad of sugar, cooked in a heavy skillet. Our skillet is old and seasoned, just right for cornbread.

Cut up a fresh tomato and more Vidalia onions, spread a cloth on the table on the porch, pour up some sweet tea and it is slap-your-momma good!! YUM!
