I've picked up two or three recipe books on the recommendation of Mudcatters over the years - I don't think I have that one but I must look at the bookshelves, because I know I have at least one that features freezing. I just pulled one called Heaven's Banquet: The Maharishi Ayur-Veda Cookbook that a Mudcatter (all I remember is his name is Steve) talked about on a food thread because the author is his sister. It's a vegetarian book, and when I looked at it online I saw some very nice recipes, most of which are things that never would be cooked with meat anyway. (I'd much rather have recipes that are standards on their own than recipes that struggle to replace some "missing" ingredient like meat.)

The heat continues here; the humidity is what really knocks it out of the park. This morning when I went to pick another quart of okra my next door neighbor was out (I'd texted her yesterday with the offer of more okra) so I took the new stuff into the house and brought out a couple of bags of yesterday's pods (already washed and ready to go) and poured them into a flat box - she ended up taking all of them and is planning to do fried okra for her extended family for a dinner this weekend. Good use!
