Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I met my Grandma Crum when I was 6 years old. She was a great cook. When we would go see her in CA she would go to the chicken coop and grab a chicken, kill it, clean it, and cook it, for dinner for us. She served fried okra with dinner and I loved it! The last time I saw my grandma alive, ( she died soon after) was when Merisa was 1 yr old. And we had fried okra!
