I too love okra, but rarely get to have it battered and fried. For some reason, whenever it makes it into the house, I end up using it it gumbo. Like I did this evening.

I call this my loaded gumbo. I make 6 quarts with 2 lb shrimp, 1 lb andouille , 1 lb chicken breast, and 1 lb whatever white fleshed fish I have on hand. DW and I will have it for 2 nights, then portion and freeze the rest for quick meals when I don't have time or feel like spending time fixing dinner. Hard to find time to cook when you're retired 😉

At my local Costco.

My pockets aren't nearly deep enough..... has anyone else tasted this grade of beef to say if the price is justified?

I have been to a few fancy steak houses and while always tasty I still leave thinking did it really taste that much better than ones I cook.

My pockets are very deep, but relatively empty 😀 For any kind of beef to be worth $100/lb it would have to do a lot more for me (to me) than excite my taste buds. I've had a Costco card for a few years now and buy dog food, glucosamine tablets, dog food there. I haven't really found any other good deals there for the things I normally buy.

Glad I wasn't the only one who thought it was insane.

I also get my dog food from Costco. Don't have a ton of regulars that I get from their but shop it enough that I justify the card.

Don't know where you live ress, but there's an Oriental carry out near me called Hunan Express. I especially like their shrimp with lobster sauce! Love Chinese food!

Love me some Okra! Grew it in my garden a few years ago and it was delicious raw! Inspired me to beer batter some crappie!!

Where's the okra in that pic? I see beer battered crappie and French fries!

I made some homemade hamburger helper mac & cheese edition last night. I wasn't in the mood to spent a bunch of time in the kitchen and I had a pound of ground beef to use. It was surprisingly good, and easy. Just some beef, seasonings, water, beef base, cheese and mac. Tasted much better than the boxed kind (which I haven't had for over 30 years), and it was much less sodium.
