  Monday Morning Mirth  

okra-8005

The crock pot festival continues here at Chez Chic! This weekend’s glorious cauldron was a gumbo-y hot mess, full of chicken, the creole holy trinity, one polish sausage link, tomatoes and what you see above…

At the grocery store, three clerks knew not its fame (nor cared) when I pleaded with them to find it. As I wandered about, a manager came to find me and showed me with great pride, a jar full of pickled ones, not good for what I was seeking but FABULOUS with Zapp’s Cajun Dill potato chips. I ended up finding these in the freezer section.

Name this vegetable, neglected and forlorn, scorned by many, loved by me — it cooked down into a fine flavorsome merge with the rest of the pot and added an nice thickening to the stew.

While you’re at it, name your favorite, but neglected vegetable…
