Krackers “n” Ketchup For Dinner

My dinner companion didn’t seem very impressed when I said “Crackers and catsup!” to his query about tonight’s dinner. I sometimes make crackers from scratch and boy are they good! But today has had many other projects filling it so no homemade crackers, we succumbed to store bought. I reminded him he hadn’t tried the catsup I made a couple weeks ago and suggested we  put it on the dinner table.

“What in the world will we eat it with ?” he asked. Well, just about anything I thought.

I sliced today’s cucumbers into a beautiful black ceramic bowl my friend Pat made, added a big dollop of sour cream, salt and pepper, celery seed and a touch of red pepper flakes and set it aside.

A jar of lemon basil pesto was thawing and the edamame dip had been created earlier. I washed and dried and sliced the okra and a handful of stray green beans, cracked a couple fresh eggs and mixed a mess of cornmeal and flour together. The okra and green beans received the egg and flour to be fried in a hot wok of oil.

I opened a can of pork and beans to kind of round out the meal and asked if he would like a slab of cheese. No cheese tonight.

Dinner was soon ready, the main course crackers and catsup! It had been my first attempt at catsup and I had cooked it down a little long I think and it turned out thick, sweet and rich, almost like a chutney. Delicious on crackers! Almost good enough to put on ice cream! The edamame dip was made with some of the soy bean harvest, my garlic, cilantro and sour cream.
