This time of year, a true southern girl loves her fresh veggies. We have a farmer’s market every Saturday in my little town. Local farmers fill their pick-up truck beds with whatever they grow and head for the market. You can usually find me there, bright and early looking for a few of my favorite foods.
They are not the prettiest tomatoes, mind ya, but they make up for that in taste.
Slap some slices between two pieces of bread,
add bacon, lettuce, and mayonnaise.
MMMMMMM…corn, but not just any ole corn,
“Silver Queen” or “Peaches and Cream”
Here’s a photo of one of each. Silver Queen is a white corn while Peaches and Cream is yellow and white mixed. I really can’t decide which one I love best.
I posted a good ole southern “fried corn” recipe a while back and if you missed it take a look here. You’ll love it!
( Hmm..what a coincidence. While I’m typing this, I’m also listening to Oprah talk about “real” food verses “junk” food. Her guest is saying things like “eat real foods and you don’t have to worry about getting enough nutrients…and only eat food that will ROT.” Her guest says that many of the products in our grocery stores aren’t really foods at all! I don’t always agree with Oprah, but I’ll have to give her an AMEN on this one.)
Okay…moving on now.
Don’t want to get too serious about food since I still love my curly cheetos!
(and even though the bag has an expiration date,
I KNOW they wouldn’t ROT for about 100 years.)
Talking about simple country food makes me want to set a simple country table!
No fuss. No gush.
