When your mom hands you extra veggies you make dinner

by admin on October 3, 2014

My folks have gone out west to visit my brother and his family. When that happens, my mom empties her fridge, and I am the (usually) lucky recipient of free food. Hey, I have a lot of mouths to feed, I’ll take free food! So the bounty bestowed on me includes a red pepper, a medium zucchini, broccoli, a cucumber and grapes.
She had given me 5 lbs of her grapes last week, and those became jelly. My fingers are still purple from the jelly! And since there is only about 2lbs of grapes, I think I’ll make juice instead.
I chopped some onions from my garden and sauteed them with some garlic from the farmers market. I added the red pepper, zucchini and leftover rice and green beans I had in the fridge and voila – dinner! Now we’ll just have to see if the kids will eat it!
