My grandmother made creamed carrots. I also like boiled carrots with a bit of butter.

Recently made roasted asparagus.

Told you about my broccoli au gratin.

LOVE Fried potatoes and onions.

Sweet Ohio corn, barely cooked with butter.

Stewed tomatoes.

Green beans cooked all day with ham.


What vegetables do you like and how do you fix them?

Gracie, dear, speaking of fresh corn... Robert claims he can tell if corn is good just by looking at it. I say bulltwinkie. What’s your opinion?

lol...........Sometimes you have to say...…..That's nice dear.

I am of the camp that doesn't strip corn down at the grocery, I take my chances.

But pretty close to heaven is corn about an hour out of an Ohio field. Not cooked too long.

But can you tell by just looking at it?

I think Thomas Jefferson said that corn was best cut off the stalk directly into a pot of boiling water.

Starting to appreciate sweet potato sides because of how good they are for nutrition.
I love anything with eggplant.
Wish there were more sides you could incorporate olives into.

I get a lot of mileage out of sliced cucumbers, onions and a little vinegar. The longer it sits around the better it gets. I'll make it spicy for Asian meals. I'll add tomatoes but scrape out the pulp if there is no red sauce in the entre.
