MEAT & OKRA… & MEETIN’ OPRAH!
(Because okra’s gross. But Oprah’s not. And if ANYONE can give this slimy, Cajun-cooked freak a TV-ready makeover, it’s Oprah. Here’s my killer idea for the world’s worst cooking show.)
It’s perfect for the FOOD NETWORK (or O.W.N. – not sure which). Maybe it’ll be one of those new-fangled shows that are simulcast on two channels at once! Okay, so the concept is simple- Every episode, a Southern lady would makes a dish that includes meat, and a mushy, slimy vegetable that creeps me out (aka OKRA). Then Oprah comes out and eats it. Come on- it writes itself! Seriously, I really do hate okra, unless it’s in a gumbo or something, but this recipe for Ground Beef Chili with Stir-Fried Okra actually looks pretty good, and is very healthy. This nice lady at biscuitsandsuch.com seems to like okra a lot, so maybe I should re-think…
…those slimy little sci-fi lookin’ green sumbitches! Aaaaaghhhhhh!!!!!
