The One That Got Away

No matter how hard you look, there is always one green bean that hides all summer long and when you finally find it, it's a monster! It could almost have been a meal in itself.

Speaking of meals, last night we had a great one. We haven't had turkey since last Thanksgiving and I had a real yen for turkey and dressing. Of course, the turkeys in the grocery stores are prohibitively expensive right now, so instead of spending $20 for a small whole turkey, I decided to just get a couple of thighs. I put several leaves of fresh sage and a couple of onion slices under the skin, oiled, salt and pepper them and into the oven they went. An hour and 15 minutes later, they shared the plate with my fresh green beans and (shame on me), boxed dressing. Oh well, a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do! I just didn't have it in me to make my usual corn bread dressing.

What an inspirational blog, we are growing our very first vegetables and was thrilled with the tomatoes!

Great stuff, will come again!

Yum. That looks good.

I like StoveTop just about as much as homemade.
