Sometimes the best laid schemes o mice and women gang aft a-gley, as this surely aint yo Mama’s green bean casserole. It also wasn’t what was originally planned. Nevertheless, sometimes mistakes produce the best dishes. This is one of those dishes and I assure you we will cook this as part of our annual Thanksgiving meal from now on. It really is that good.

Zucchini Fritters

She looked at a few of the entrees but stopped when she saw one of the veggie recipes. “I really need some vegetable recipes” she commented as she was bookmarking the blog. I have found over the course of years that many people feel the same way. People always have a favorite main course or dessert but they are stymied when it comes to veggies. So I posted this veggie side dish. This vegetable side dish is is one of our favorites. We hope you give it a try. Continue reading

Baby Lady & I love veggies. If it weren’t for the children, we would eat primarily a vegetarian (not vegan) diet. This dish is a show stopper if you like asparagus. If you don’t, well this dish aint your cup of tea but your guests will love it. You will like this dish because it is exceptionally versatile. It can be served for breakfast, as an appetizer or as a side dish with dinner. It is wonderfully flavorful and definitely worth a try. Continue reading
