okra, cut up as you would to fry

corn meal, enough to coat okra

1/2 cup chopped onion...or the amount you want

1/2 cup chopped peppers, bell pepper/sweet banana pepper

corn cut off cob, frozen or canned will work

oil, enough to fry okra in

You may want to put this in a larger skillet. I cut up the okra to fry, coat with cornmeal, put in oil and cook till about half done, put in onion, pepper and corn, continue cooking to your satisfaction, we love this with fresh tomatoes, it makes a meal for us. I also put salt and black pepper on this while cooking.

Karen, what is needed is a "Hot Water Cookbook." Many people are challenged by cooking that requires any talent beyond heating water and opening a package, such as instant oatmeal or tea.

Oh, no, poor Karen! The rowdy boys have found your blog! Hang in there, girl! Maybe you can civilize the wild ones.

I began cooking at the age of 9 with my father and have always loved trying new recipes. Beware: I am fond of onions and peppers! I am diabetic so I do try to cook more healthy dishes these days. My door is always open to trying and sharing new recipes. Let's see what we can cook up with this blog!
