Thanks, Mrs. Snark! The market was this morning and thankfully everything we took we sold except one pint of okra and DH wants me to boil that for him for dinner tonight. He plans to make drunk chicken to go with it and I have some yellow crookneck squash and vidalia onions I plan to stew down.
For anyone that doesn't know what drunk chicken is, you take a whole chicken and the chicken rack that is designed to hold a beer can, and you fit the chicken over the rack and the beer can fits into the rear end which has been opened up pretty wide anyway to take the insides out. You put it on the grill or in the oven or smoker and let it cook pretty slow. It tastes magnificent. I plan to put some garlic and fresh rosemary on the outside of the chicken for some extra flavor. Some people like to put apple juice in the can instead of beer and that makes a great tasting flavor also. I have done OK today. I could only get down 1/2 of my MRC vanilla shake with 5 strawberries in it because I got so hot at the market and just didn't think I could keep it down. I did drink 2 bottles of ice cold water. When I got home, I ate a handful of Scuppernong grapes and some leftover browned ground venison and tomatoes and okra with another bottle of water. It was very tasty. I am too drained to do much else this afternoon, but I hope DH and I can plant some lettuce, cilantro, squash and peppermint swiss chard when it cools off later this evening.
