As the delightful Victoria Abbott/Mary Jane Maffini mentioned last Sat. in her post, our annual writer's retreat is also a bit of a foodie feast time. We pair up and take turns preparing the main meal.
Keeping with the seafood (I should say sensational!) theme set by MJ with that sensational sambuca shrimp appetizer, I decided to do a very simple grilled trout along with one of my favorite veggies, okra which I stir fried, also a simple recipe for a very hot summer's day.
We'll start with the okra.
Remember, this was meant to be an easy meal so the final dish was a container of store bought potato salad.
Friends always make any mealtime and good time!
I'm still so pumped about my new series, that I'm doing another random draw for a copy of Toasting Up Trouble! Just leave a comment about your annual summer friends or family fling!
