Monster,

When you come to visit me .. I will have the boyfriend fry up a batch just for you, so you can eat to your hearts content !! Well... you may have to share a piece or 2 with my little dog so he won't sit there staring at you with his big brown, pity poor me eyes. ~LOL~But the BF makes THE best fried okra that I have ever had. Not greasy and soggy like in so many restaraunts... heck, I have even been known to eat it cold in the morning it is so good.

Monster.. no worry, I know that it wasn't about you. I just wanted to give you more incentive to come and see your Uncle... and of course... ME!!! ~LOL~

Lilly,
The BF finds okra that is about as long as his fingers... or about 2 to 3 inches long and slices it about 1/3 inch.. and it has to be crunchy when he slices it, or he throws it away. Then he coats it in corn meal with seasonings of salt, pepper and a little season salt and onion powder mixed in. He heats the oil to just boiling when he puts in the first batch (using a deep fryer with a diameter of about 18 inches layered about 2 deep). When it has finished frying, he puts it out in a single layer on about 5 paper towels to drain the oil off. When he is done deep frying it, he heats up a large cast iron skillet (I won't cook in anything but cast iron) with a light coating of pam on it.. just enough to keep the okra from sticking and then cooks it about 5 more minutes over a very low heat. This really makes it crispy. If your like most people.. you don't like soggy okra. Although I will eat pickled okra as well.

For all of the rest of you... I never even thought about the fact that I was an injured worker. Even with the previous injury to my hand. I've never let that stop me from working and doing what I wanted. I hadn't even been aware that there was a contest... was just doing my job and doing what I enjoyed. I love talking with all the different people every day. It's just to bad that the management at Avis isn't as good as their customers.
