Then, send Little Girl (with hubby) out to the garden to get tomatoes.
Chop up the tomatoes (about a pint’s worth), add them to the pot, and realize you needed to get a bigger pot.
Get a bigger pot, then add one chopped onion, 1/4 stick of butter (Big Mommy’s official recipe calls for “Oleo” — is that margarine???), 2 tablespoons sugar (you can use a little less and it’ll be fine), salt and pepper to taste. Cook over medium heat until okra is tender. Ouila!
And there you have it, folks. More to come from the recipe file of Big Mommy’s greats, so stay tuned!
