Crab Cakes, Okra

crab cakes and saute of okra, tomatoes, and bacon

I forget about crab cakes, which is too bad, given how easy they are to make and how delicious they are to eat. I was prompted to remember them by the okra I picked up—I just love crab and okra together. And I was prompted to pick up the okra, which I also tend to forget about, by the glut of very ripe cherry tomatoes I had sitting on the window sill (don’t refrigerate tomatoes, ever, it makes them mealy), I just love tomatoes and okra together (particularly sauteed with bacon and sweet onions).

I had a piece of leftover corn in the cooler, so that went in too, for a pretty succotash-like pan of sauteed vegetables, just perfect alongside a crispy crab cake.
