Now this is my kind of eating. Been wondering when someone would start a thread about vegetables only. I’ve been too chicken to start it myself. All of the aforementioned veggies are familiar to me as Mom grew, canned, cooked any and all vegetables and to this day I would rather eat a meal of good vegetables than meat of any kind. If I had no meat at all, I would miss it eventually, but could go for days on vegetables only. A lote of times my husband and I will have a dinner of salad and a couple of veggies.
I used to love creamed tomatoes on mashed potatoes (instead of gravy, which I also love). Fried green tomatoes was a wonderful treat my Dad and shared as he would cook them and we would enjoy them together. Fresh mushrooms my Grandpa would gather from the local golf course on steaks of in homemade mushroom soup were wonderful.
Nowadays we love roasted vegetables and are adventuresome in trying new ones all the time. Love Celeriac, Jicima, collards (Mom never cooked collards but we did have Dandelion greens every spring and always spinach, kale, mustard and turnip greens. I could go on and but will sit back now and enjoy reading about all the ways you all have had veggies in your lives.
Thanks for beginning this thread….burgers and franks were beginning to wear a bit thin, as much as I love them also.
