Veggie Tales

I'm not a vegetarian, but I do love veggies.
Hubby brought home more tomatoes yesterday.
This will be my lunch today.

Baked Parmesan Tomatoes

We shopped for fresh vegetables at a couple of fresh produce 
stands near our house over the weekend.
We were shocked by the high prices.  
I wanted to buy black berries to make a cobbler, 
but at almost $6.00 for a pint, I passed.
Oven roasted green beans for tonight's dinner.
I discovered several years ago that this was delicious.
Snap off the ends, toss beans in a small amount of olive oil,
place on cookie sheet sprayed with Pam.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
 Bake at 425° F. for 10 minutes, or until crisp-tender.

Do you have any great fresh veggie recipes?

If you were closer to us I would supply you with all the tomatoes and squash you could eat. We have given away hundreds of tomatoes and I've frozen and frozen tomatoes and we eat them every day. It has been a good year for the vegetables.

That sounds wonderful. We love fresh veggies and fruits. Too bad you don't live closer as I would give you some black berries. I have black berry vines coming over our fence and we get lots of black berris for free and we don't even have to go any where!

I love sauteeing fresh green beans in a little olive oil or butter, add a few slices of onion, seasoned pepper and a little sprinkle of sugar to caramalize. Yum!

Happy 4th!

I'm so jealous you have fresh tomatoes! They're my favorite and I haven't had any for so long. I used to be able to find someone around Cushing to buy from but it's not so easy any more.
