  • Garden fresh vegetables inspires meatless meal

    After spending time in the hot afternoon sun picking vegetables from my friends’ garden, I wasn’t up to spending a lot of time in the kitchen. However, I had some nice vegetables I don’t have in my garden that would make a lovely meatless dinner.

    Now, I must admit, I am not very good about eating meals without some form of meat. I grew up with grandparents having a big farm and every year we had freshly butchered beef and pork that went directly into our freezer.
