Okra is one of the great hot weather plants. They love the heat, so it's plentiful in Texas. When I first started dating my husband, this is one of the first recipes she fixed for dinner. The rest of dinner included chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and cream gravy, and tossed salad with Miracle Whip dressing. That was 50 years ago!
