Herbed Wings
DinnerLunchRecipesSides

Is there any bad time for wings? I didn’t think so. Chicken wings are good for lunch, a snack, a side dish, parties, or even a dinner. Heck, I’ll even eat some cold leftover chicken wings for breakfast. These herbed wings are a great alternative to the normal hot-sauce or

Pork chop with mustard sauce and okra
DinnerRecipes

In my part of the world, okra only shows up for a short period of time during the year, so I like to do what I can with it. It’s an interesting vegetable that’s beloved by the South, and slowly making it’s way (thankfully) throughout the rest of the U.S.
