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.
