After spending much of the morning in the garden planting my second summer garden, it only seemed fitting to have a dinner from the garden.
Okra is the only veggy harvested today. Thankfully, I still have quite a few butternut squash in my root cellar, aka cardboard box in the closet. No root cellars in florida, thought I sure wish I had one.
On the menu was okra, butternut squash and meatloaf.
My favorite way to have butternut squash is cut in half, with a little salt and butter, then baked. I sliced the okra tossed it in a little salt and flour, coated it with egg, and then tossed it in Panko breadcrumbs. Then it was fried. Took the healthy out of it but it sure was delicious.
