THIS FAT OLD LADY’S WHAT I’M NOT COOKING TUESDAY – SURPRISE

I subscribe to a few recipe email sites.  They send me recipes, I look at them, and if I think they look yummy and/or worth the time and effort, I type them into my (unreasonably large) recipe database.

What you don’t want to see as an e-mail header –

SOUTHERN SURPRISE SOUP

Um. 

So now, I want/need to know – what’s the surprise.

Or do I?

Possum? Squirrel? Road Kill?

What could it be?

I open the e-mail, and it turns out the real name of the recipe is Southern Vegetable Soup.  Not as click-baitable or alarming as Southern Surprise Soup.

Then I look at the photo – and there’s the surprise, as far as I’m concerned, and it’s nasty.

Okra.

Okra floating in a sea of red and other more edible vegetables.

You should know that okra translates to “snot with seeds”.

Surprise, indeed.
