Ode to a Southern Meal

SO this past weekend my Mom went to a Farm Stand and bought the last of this seasons Okra and was kind enough to share it with me!!! YUMM! So I was thinking you know what lets do it big and include Fried Okra, Breaded chicken and then top that off with corn bread... yum yum The only thing missing was a pie of some sort!
So like I have posted this recipe many times where I breaded my chicken using the 3 step method, this time I used plain bread crumbs and added shredded Italian cheeses to the mix! They were great!
Then I washed my Okra and chopped it up. I added salt, pepper and cornmeal and tossed that around before throwing them in a med-high pan with EVOO! How long to cook them? I like mine brown (remember color = flavor) so I think I cooked mine for 15-20 min while the cornbread baked!
This meal was DELISH!!!! Man, I love me some home cooked Okra and every time I eat my chicken this way I am reminded why it is my favorite method!!! If you are wondering I topped my meal off with a sprinkle of my new "high end" Sea Salt from Williams Sonoma, something I have been lusting after for awhile now!
I like to make my cornbread in the muffin pan but Matt requests it this way in a round cake pan... and I love it anyway and it was the perfect trio for my Southern meal!
I eat my cornbread with dinner topped with Matt on the other hand eats his as dessert slathered in syrup and I think it is weird. Anyone else eat it like this?
Now it is almost 11am and I am starving after this post....I am off to eat another Turkey wrap filled with Black bean Relish from Tuesday!!

I love love love cornbread! I am with you I just eat it with a big glob of butter. Steven does not use syrup but he does use honey and it grosses me out! I tried it the other day and I just don't get it I thought it took away from the cornbread so much!
