Although my first word was “meat”, I love my veggies. Last night, we had a vegetable dinner, and  very tasty it was, too. In addition to corn on the cob, we had:

POTATO PANCAKES

  • leftover mashed potatoes
  • egg
  • onion or onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dab of butter

Melt butter in frying pan. Mix other ingredients and fry in butter.

OVEN-ROASTED ASPARAGUS

  • fresh asparagus
  • water
  • salt
  • garlic olive oil

Break the asparagus into roughly equal lengths. Cook in covered pot with salted water and oil to cover until crisp-tender (not very long). Put into medium-hot skillet (I used the one I had just taken the potato pancakes out of) and cook, stirring often, until dry-browned to the degree you want.

SUMMER PUDDING

  • white bread, crusts cut off
  • fruit, fresh or canned or frozen, with juice
  • whipped topping, if desired

Squish down the bread so it’s flattened but not noodleated. Line a dish with the squished bread. Put in a layer of juice fruit. Put on another layer of squished bread, another layer of fruit and juice, another layer of bread. Put in refrigerator till good and chilled. Turn out onto plate and top with more fruit and juice and whipped topping. Pretty and delicious.

I gave Joe a red dog biscuit this morning. He was a happy dog. I’m sorry, but I’m not throwing away any green ones that may still be in the bag, just because he doesn’t prefer them. It sux to be a dog.
