I never knew that Campbell's Chicken Gumbo soup has okra in it (never had orca...hehe) until I was an adult. I loved that soup as a child - haven't had it in dogs' years, but I think I would still like it.
candle - if you like beans, cornbread, fried taters, you'll be fine. Ramps aren't universally eaten throughout WV, although most folk who live in the hollers like 'em. There was nothing my dad liked better than beans and cornbread. If mom fixed fried taters too, he was one happy fella. (and the leftover cornbread was used for dessert...pour syrup on it and he loved it).
Yep, it does. I love it! I had never heard of Orca until I married my hubby.
I love all of those things, HC. We eat them now. I also love collard greens. When I taught in the inner city, the black women would bring them in for International Culture Day. They also serve them in many places in Cleveland. I would frequent these places with the teachers for lunch when we had meetings for this and that. Lots of nutrients in collard greens. You just made me so hungry when you said cornbread with syrup on it. Yum!
