So despite my lack of taste for okra, when I got a fresh bag of it from my mom, I figured now was the time to try it–my way, not fried in batter.
When I was younger, I wanted to get as far away from Gainesville as possible, but now, I realize just how much I love coming home.
Friday night, I met a couple girlfriends at Pure Taqueria in Inman Park. I’d been to the location in Woodstock once, but had never tasted the food.

A picture is worth a a thousand words, so I’ll spare you too many details and highlight only the good stuff.
