Long Ladies Fingers Or Okras From A Friend

After our morning walk at the recreational park, we drove to our friend's house to pass them something. And in return, they gave us some ladies fingers or okras harvested from their own plants. These ladies fingers were grown from the seeds that I had earlier passed to them. In return, I was blessed with these okras. Bless and be blessed!

I think its my turn to ask for some seeds from my friends.
 My home cooked dinner for that evening.
 I blanched the okras given by my friend.
I topped the blanched okras with sambal belacan or spicy prawn paste plus fried garlic and garlic oil.
 Steamed sweet sour grouper. The liquid from the steamed fish was very appetizing.
I steamed the last pork kidney sausage.
I do not eat this, so just for hubby.
 We shared this plate of white rice.

  7. I love the colorful wooden doors, they make a great decoration! And that one white cloud on the mountains, it really stands out! In case you do not hear from me for awhile, a big hurricane is coming and our entire state has been declared a disaster area ahead of time. We are not evacuating, will wait it out. Don't know what will happen, we may need to go to a shelter.

  13. Dear Nancy
    your food looks very appetizing.

    I have sown seeds in the spring. Unfortunately, one plant grew, but it did not have a single fruit.

    I love Okra but in my country you can buy it very sporadically.
    Hugs and greetings.

  15. I remember when I was a young child around eight, my date brought home a black & white TV and the screen was in a circle form. We were so excited and I got to watch a cartoon, Micky Mouse. I'm so amazed of what type of TV I have today, 70 inch and it's color. I guess things have changed today. See ya Nancy.

  16. I confess okra is about my least favorite vegetable - tied with brussels sprouts.

  21. Bless and be blessed indeed! I have not seen such long okras before. Usually even short ones at the supermarkets are already old.

    1. Usually it is the short ones that we get from the market. These long ones are very rare.
