Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Momma contributed this recipe to her State Farm cookbook where she worked for her entire career. Definitely one of Momma and Daddy’s favorite dishes. Momma grew up growing and picking okra – she was always terrified of the okra worms! Daddy also grows okra currently which is such a treat.
