Following a kind visit from a neighbor bringing goodies from her garden, my wife declared tonight veggie night and it was delicious. Here is the run down:
freshly sliced cucumbers and onions
fried squash
green beans
sauteed eggplant, tomato and onion
fried white corn with peppers, onion and bacon (OK, a tiny amount of meat for seasoning, with the drippings used in the      squash and green beans too)
roasted sweet potatoes
coleslaw
biscuits

    if that's how vagitarians eat, then I could convert.  Looks really fulfilling.

    You always make veggies look great! I have a zucchini crust veggie pizza on right now. That's the best I can do with veggies.

    Oh, we eat plenty of meat, my wife just declared tonight veggie night, and it was so good we did not miss the meat entree. The bacon and bacon drippings enhance the veggies.

    That looks fabulous.  Would look extra fabulous arranged around a thick ribeye.

    I suppose you are right, but this was so good I did not miss the ribeye at all. Fresh garden veggies, especially the first few of the season, are extra good. Brings back childhood memories of a simpler time when Grannie made the best food ever.

    That looks wonderful!  My parents had a huge garden when I was a kiddo, reminds me of some of those summer meals.

    Looks good, but with my skills, that would be about three hours worth of prep!
