Summer- Delightful Recipe!

I have a friend north of Dixie who always laughs when I tell her that we had fried okra for dinner! Well, it fried, pickled, or truly gold from the summer garden. Add a squash casserole, speckled butter beans, hot peppers, onions, and corn bread to the table. There you have my favorite meal of the season. All ingredients must be fresh from the garden though!!! Summer delightful...summer delicious! (Photo from Flicker)
