GOOD YIELD

Monday, August 27th, 2007

The 11 pounds of okra turned out quite well. We ate 2 cups at supper and the cook put 12 cups (6 packs) in the freezer. The 15 pounds that was purchased today has not been touched in anyway to prepare it for freezing. It probably will not be tomorrow either as I will be working 10-7.  I may get them rinsed and the ends removed after I get home, but no promises.  Okra keeps well and I am glad. I told the guy at the market that I wanted another 15 pounds on Thursday and 1/2 bushel of butter beans.

DH is having a procedure Friday and I have to drive him home afterwards, so I will be off all day. That should give me time to get the vegetables that I pick up Thursday prepared for the freezer.

DON’T KNOW

Monday, August 27th, 2007

What the problem is, but I definitely do not feel good.  I am very tired.  I feel like I did before I had the radiation treatment.  This is not good.  I will be going to bed shortly.  Hopefully I feel bad because I have not eaten correctly today–too much sugar.  I am very thirsty so that is probably the problem.

SLOW

Monday, August 27th, 2007

In a previous post I told you folks that I was not a fast worker. To see how slow I do work, I timed myself last night preparing the 11 pounds of okra for cooking. Please keep in mind that I do a good job and the job is thorough, I never rush thru a job just so that I can say it is done. It is done correctly or not at all. This is what I did to prepare the okra, rinsed it, cut off the stem and blossom ends, then after that was all done, I cut each pod in wheels. Wheels is a phrase my mom used, for those that do not know, each pod is cut into little circle pieces. Bottom center of picture shows wheels.

The okra has been cooked and the cook will bag it for the freezer after supper tonight. Of course, she will prepare some of it to go with the potato salad, roast and rice and gravy that is on the menu for tonight’s supper.

The poor cook will never learn, she stopped by the farmer’s market and purchased another 15 pounds to prepare for freezing.
