Anyway, I did manage to get to our neighborhood farmers market on Sunday to grab us some farm fresh goodness. We always buy the peaches they have (AMAZING), but this time around something else caught my eye. Grass-fed organic beef tamales (gluten free) and fresh grown okra. Two new items that I just had to try out.
So, dinner last night was easy as pie. Warm the tamales, cover in homemade salsa, slice some peaches, and steam the okra (seasoned). Was it good? No, it was GREAT! The flavors of the tamales blended so well and had a nice kick to it. They weren't greasy or heavy, just right! The peaches just melt in your mouth and the okra just makes my lips pucker up with joy (if that even makes sense). But the best was it all came from our hard working farmers! There is something special about eating the foods grown or handmade by your "neighbor." Its a feeling of support, hard work, and love that goes into it. Is that cheesy enough for you?
As I sit here now, I am kicking myself for not buying more okra. I could have pickled it!! At least we have some peaches left. Maybe some grilled peaches with fish tonight??? Sounds good to me.
Happy almost Wednesday!
Tropical Traditions kindly offered my blog to do a giveaway for the Coconut PB. You all game for that? If so, I'll post it this week.
