Well that is the question that Chuck asked me over dinner this evening. When he asked I immediately had visions of the seedy and slimy center of the two inch vegetable that is so popular in Louisiana gumbo dishes. But rather than saying anything about that; I just said is was a vegetable. He said he KNEW that. Good enough.
But could I really tell him what he ordered to have with his dinner? No, I couldn't. He has already made it clear that he hates tomatoes. They have that gooey stuff and all those seeds.
No, he can't eat tomatoes.
He said he also cannot eat cucumbers for the same reason.
So when they delivered the fried okra, I said nothing.
To say I was shocked when he said the okra was good, would be an understatement. I just keep learning about his tastes.
Oh, by the way...I DO NOT eat okra!
