My grandmother, bless her sainted heart, would have said it is rude to tell someone how good my dinner was and not offer them some. I agree and share with my readers, not the prepared meal, but the enthusiasm for preparing and eating it which will hopefully inspire others to venture out of their comfort zone.

Arugula and beet greens picked and put directly into the pan to steam with a little garlic, salt, and pepper, and just a splash of my home-made apple cider vinegar at the end paired well with a dish of cornmeal battered green tomatoes, okra, and zucchini. Left-over BBQ ribs and some diced tomatoes with coarsely chopped basil from my garden was perfect with just a little salt and pepper and a dribble of olive oil and vinegar. I’m hardly a photographer so let me say the pictures do not do the meal justice.

Blissful Meals yall, enjoy some garden bounty – if not from your own garden then fresh from the farmer’s market.
