Quiet mouth Trina...quiet mouth...

I teach Special Education and sometimes when our students eat various yummy foods they make sounds as they chew. So we (the paraprofessionals and I) sometimes say, "Quiet mouth...quiet mouth." Most of the time the students comply. Saying all that to say, last week I cooked the most tasty okra EVER!

As I ate the okra I caught myself making the same sounds as my students, "Hmmmmmm. Mmmmmmmmmm. Hmmmmmmmmmm. Mmmmmmmm." I literally told myself, "Quiet mouth Trina." What made my okra so magically delicious? Well for starters my my "cooked down" some farm fresh okra from Louisiana. Do not ask what "cooked down" means. AND my mom gave me a bag of fresh Gulf shrimp from Louisiana. The shrimp tasted so wonderfully fresh and delicious, and rather than shrink in size like most shrimp when you cook them, they stayed the same huge size.

So guess what I plan to prepare this week minus the fresh Gulf shrimp? You guessed it...O-O-Okra!
