Each item listed was featured in a dish when I returned home this afternoon from Conroe's Saturday am Market. Okra was my favorite vegetable to create with because the result was Chicken Sausage Gumbo;
I started by sauteing bulk Breakfast sausage, adding in chopped up pieces of Bell pepper and Tomato ends. Covered with water and meat first Chicken base. Brought to a boil and added in 1/2 inch Okra, Celery and cubed Chicken breast. Seasoned with ground Black pepper, and Gumbo File. When I retrieved a chunk of Chicken and it was cooked I shared my creation with the Wife. The braided herbed bread was sliced, buttered and used for dipping into the Gumbo. This dish will probably be taken to family group bible study tomorrow night.
The other dish on the agenda tonight was Fresh Green beans cleaned and sauteed in maple Bacon with Turkey stock added after sauteing was done. The Bake potatoes were peeled 1/2 inch diced and boiled with Salt and Black pepper. All this was then tossed together for one of the Wife's favorite meals. You could hear the umm and ahh's along with other Lip smacking noises as she polished two bowls.. Mission Accomplished !!
