All okra dinner, Sullivan's Island, SC  
I was invited to an all okra dinner on Sullivan's Island this evening. The challenge made everyone very creative!
Two versions of okra pilau, okra soup, okra rellenos with hot pepper cheese, roasted okra, okra succotash, pickled okra, okra slaw, okra oatmeal cookies and okra ice cream and bonus fresh trout. 
I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with an okra oatmeal cookie recipe but that got topped by okra ice cream. 
Who knew? Everything was delicious.

We each brought a dish. My contribution were the cookies. They were good oatmeal cookies with green in them. You couldn't really taste the okra but I got points for creativity!

Joan, all that I can say about an okra fest is : Yark! or maybe Ewwww! ;)

A long, long time ago the cooks at Med U would make okra & tomatoes with fresh produce. Lord have mercy! You had to go down and line up early on those days to be sure you got a bowl. It was wonderful.
