This is some good stuff ya'll.

Creole okra

1 c finely chopped onion
1 c finely chopped green onions
1 c finely chopped bell peppers
1 lg can stewed tomatos (or a qt home canned maters)
1 sm can tomato sauce
2 T minced garlic (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder will work)
2 T Soy Sauce
1/2 c white cookin wine, or 1/8 c vinegar
1 lb sliced sausage or cubed ham
10 c okra cut 1/2 inch thick. (can use frozen okra)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 T Louisiana Hot Sauce
Couple of good dashes of Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning.

In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat and saute onions, green onions,and bell peppers until onions are clear. Stir in Tomatoes, tomato sauce, garlic, soy sauce, wine/vinegar and meat, cover and cook over medium heat until it comes to a boil, stirrin occasionally. Stir in okra, salt, seasonins, and reduce to low and simmer, covered, stirrin occasionally until okra is tender, about 45 minutes.
Serve as a side dish, or a main dish, with a pan of good ole southern cornbread fer soppin :D

The easy way to do dishes:
Set them on the floor untill the dog licks them clean then run them through the automatic dishwasher.


A lightly underfed dog will shine those dishes like new. :wink:

No need for the dishwasher then. Rinse and eat.

honestly.......clear liquids for 24-48 hours or until the symptoms subside!! that means "broth", tea, gatorade or powerade, jello....anything that is liquid at room temperature and that you can SEE THROUGH!! NO chunky juice (orange), No milk, NO cream soups!! Let your poor tummy heal, katrina and keep us posted! Hope you are feeling better soon!!!! :wink:

Veggie soup. Man that stuff will cure anything. Just use lots of tomatoes.

Good Whiskey, and lots of it. And no, don't drink the "chunky" stuff. :lol:

Nothing will break a fever and relieve the aches of a flu better than a hot whiskey:

couple shots of good whiskey in a cup
fill with hot water
Put in a spoonful or two or big squirt of honey
Stir- Drink- and after a couple go crawl under the covers and just sweat every bug you have out...Be cured when you wake up :wink:

Some add nutmeg or clove
or brown sugar
or lemon
