Valet


One from the last time we were in Westport along the busy main street full of shops.  There are so many shops I want to explore next time I go back there.

It's been a very busy week here. I've recently discovered that the supermarket I work in now stocks frozen Okra. I've been trying to buy it here ever since I tried it in Fiji a few years ago, it makes a nice change from the average vegetables.  

Linking up with Weekend Reflections and the Weekend Roundup.

Okra is a popular vegetable in Greece either stewed with tomatoes and potatoes or stewed with chicken. Noty favourite vegetable. Enjoy yours

I love okra. The viscosity of it is charming

Try growing some. I got a variety to produce okra in south of UK this year (unheated greenhouse), you might manage a crop where you are. Try Kings seeds - they even have red ones!

I love the wide overhangs over the sidewalks. Some of the older towns near Tulsa have that it sure is handy in the summer sun or when it is raining.

Okra isn't my go-to veggie, but its health benefits are convincing me to include it more often in my meals.

Hugs and blessings, Amy

This does look like and interesting row of businesses for visiting some shopping there. Mrs. Jim is from Louisiana where okra is to them almost as potatoes are to me. I like seafood gumbo, some think it is a soup, okra is generally a part of that. But I don't like okra and take all mine out and give it to her. You are right on the gift situation, we are like that, presents to the kids. My "Dr. Jim" blog is a tongue in cheek posting, I tend to make it a little outlandish. Once in a while it has real info, like the one where to you get to if you did straight down. Right now I only post once a year to keep it alive.

Looks like a fun place to explore.

It's not often I get to Devonport on Auckland's North Shore as there are 2 ways to get there. One is by ferry from the opposite side...
