Just when I thought we might escape the summer without a scorching day in sight, the mercury climbed to over 90 yesterday. Honestly, as much as I tend to wilt in that kind of heat, I'm hardly at liberty to complain since it's the middle of August - just the time of year when you expect that kind of thing to happen.
We're getting super excited around here about visitors arriving tomorrow from the south. (Hmmm... maybe they're bringing the heat with them). I hear they're bringing loads of homegrown vegetables with them. Including okra! I never realized what a southern staple okra is and that I'd never be able to find it around here. I don't even see it frozen at the grocery store. Not that frozen okra could ever compare to the fresh stuff.
