1 cup cornmeal
salt and pepper to taste

Slice okra in to ½ to 1 inch sections. Place 1 cup flour and buttermilk in separate bowls and combine remaining cup of flour with cornmeal in a third bowl. Season each bowl with salt and pepper to taste. Dip okra in flour, then buttermilk and then in the cornmeal mixture. Fry in 350* oil until done (2-3 minutes).

Serve with salsa or make an easy dipping sauce with ½ cup mayo, ½ cup BBQ sauce and ½ pickle relish. This is yummy dip for both fried squash and fried okra.

1 bottle sesame seeds
1 pkg. (40) Keebler grasshopper cookies

1 pkg. Shredded coconut meat
1 small bottle liquid green food coloring
1 double can shoestring potatoes
40 cupcake papers

For each “hamburger” cookie, stack like a sandwich:
Buns = 2 vanilla wafers (optional: brush one with egg white & sprinkle with sesame seeds, then bake like meringue)
Ketchup = red icing
Hamburger = 1 keebler grasshopper cookie
Mustard = yellow icing
Lettuce = shredded coconut tinted green (place shredded coconut into gallon size ziploc bag along with a few drops
of liquid green food coloring, close, then squish around to distribute the coloring.) Need abt. 1 tablespoon per “hamburger.”

To serve: Place each “hamburger” in a cupcake paper with 1 or 2 tablespoons of shoestring potatoes (french fries).
