Vegetable Throwdown - Need Easy Meat
This is what I'm having so far....
Fresh green Beans & new potatoes
Grilled Corn Salad (or maybe corn on cob, haven't decided)
Fried Green tomatoes
Sliced homegrown 'maters & canteloupe
Cucumbers and Onions in vinegar
For dessert probably a lemon icebox pie.
But I need a protein! (Please do not try to convince me I don't. It's a long story but I need a protein.)
Something easy or do ahead since I will be doing the fried green tomatoes at the last minute.
I thought about just deviled eggs but not sure i can get away with that.
Thought about telling my guests to stop and pick us up some Gus' fried chicken. But I don't like having 2 fried things and DH wants fried green tomatoes.
Nothing sounds good though.
Sausages definitely fit the "easy" bill and would be yummy too.
I was kind of going with a southern theme (although the corn salad wouldn't be). But just not in the mood for a beef roast. My mother-in-law will just fry some bacon with her peas and cornbread and such but that didn't quite suit me either.
Its so hot that many foods are just not sounding good right now.
Don't be afraid to have fried chicken....two fried items is not all that taboo on occasion. .....Especially in Olive Branch :)) ~~~ Fried Okra anyone!!!
Eat Well & Enjoy!!!
