Up to My Old Tricks

Yesterday, I read a foodie article about rediscoving (and liking!) okra. The picture was so tantalizing that I stopped by the grocery store and bought some okra. Last night, for dinner, I pretty much made the sauteed okra as described in the article. Yummy. This morning, I had the other half of the okra left. I sauteed it, like I did the night before, but I over salted it just a hair. So, I mixed it with some chopped tomatoes and garnished it with parmesan. The flavors went well together, but I think the moisture in the tomatoes accentuated the residual moisture (aka slime) in the okra. I didn't mind so much, but guests might not enjoy it. I know my brother doesn't like that. So. Partial success on this one.
