Sweet Georgia Brown Okra Gumbo Recipe?

I just ate at SGB and picked up some of their okra gumbo for my sister. I didn't try it but she has RAVED about it! However, she says it tasted tart....like it had been made with PICKLED okra or made with vinegar. It also had bell peppers in it. Has anyone tried it? Does anyone have a similar recipe? Or maybe the NAME of this dish, in case my looking for okra gumbo isn't working because it is actually something else? Thanks for the help!

Whats are some Favorite/Specialty items you buy at Central Market and Whole Foods?

I love their pomegranate italian soda....buy it in the 6-pack section. Also, their power punch antioxidant muffins are the BEST!

Oops....talking about CM

I am heading, once again, to visit my Dad in Texarkana in a few weeks and I always wonder if there are places along that I30 route that I should be checking out! Like in Greenville, Sulphur Springs, Mount Pleasant, or Texarkana itself? Any thoughts? Thanks!

Oh thank you.....I'm new to boards and I got to thinking later that I should've looked for it first. Thank you...and haven't ever heard the term "supertasters" before.

Foodies with extra-perceptive taste sense?

I've recently completed a personality test that came back and said my senses were more heightened than most. That coincided with friends having recently mentioned that "I seemed to taste more flavors" than they did. Do you find that to be the case? I'm 50 years old and never heard it before. But now that I think about it....it fits so much of my food affection!

Ooooh....we had the cottage cheese with pineapple or pears....never heard of the thousand island part....but that sounds yummy! Love a little tang with the sweet!

We also loved a pineapple slice with a dollop of miracle whip and then topped with grated cheddar cheese....makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

Eggrolls with saucy vegetables inside

When I was in college in Shawnee, OK, we used to eat at a chinese restaurant named Mandarin Gardens. They had egg rolls that were so big they would cut them into 3 sections on their buffet. The outsides were brown and crispy but their insides weren't dry....they had a flavorful sauce on the vegetables. The only eggrolls I've ever found since then are dry inside. Does anyone know of a restaurant in the Dallas area that might make the other kind? The restaurant in OK has been closed for many years.

I was eating at the German Restaurant at Epcot and they had a great parsnip and carrot slaw in a vinegar dressing. I tried to find a good copy of the recipe after I got back but couldn't. I had never had parsnips before but I really liked it!

I was at an older ladies' luncheon a few years back and one of them had made tomato aspic. It was fabulous! I've been copying aspic recipes ever since but haven't made any yet.

Wild Sand Plums?

My friend makes plum jelly every year but has lost her source of wild sand plums. Does anyone know of any place in the dallas area (I would drive 1/2 an hour or so) that sells them? I appreciate your help.
