    1. Hi Nellie ,
      Quick and easy for the busy days ahead . Thanks for stopping by : )

  2. Hi Nee!!!
    Don't beat me with a wet noodle nut I would really love to make this yummy dish without Okra!!! It sure sounds good, Nee:) (oh ok, I'll add okra for Marion:)

    Thanks for sharing, Nee...
    Hope you're feeling better each day:)

    1. Hi Louise ,
      You can make it without the okra ... just don't tell Marion ....Oops !!! I forgot Marion makes her rounds of the blogs (Smiling) .

      I am feeling better each day .
      Thanks for stopping by dear friend :)

  3. Good evening Nee,
    Oh boy, I could use a bowl of this for sure. I love your recipe and the ingredients are fab! Always loved Okra, especially in a gumbo or even fried. I would cut back on the ground red pepper, but the rest is very tasty I am sure. I like the fact that you are serving it over rice. I also love when the rice soaks up the juices. It really tastes good. Hope that you are feeling better too! Thanks for sharing this one...Have a blessed weekend!

    1. Good evening Dottie ,
      You can also make this dish with the other white meat . I am fortunate that my kids love vegetables . As you know all my recipes you can add or subtract the ingredients to make it your own .
      Thank you for the kind wishes , I am feeling like my old self , but taking it easy and not rushing it .
      Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend ! Nee ;-D

  4. Dear Nee, That does look good. It is cold, real rainy (flooding) and very windy!! That looks like the warm comfort meal of winter.
    I hope you are feeling good.
    Blessings dear. Catherine xo
