A tomato sandwich and homemade hash browned potatoes with LOTS OF KETCHUP:
We don't have a real garden this year, but maybe we will have one next year. That hasn't stopped us from living off the land as much as possible. The gifts of produce keep on coming and we are striving to use them. Fresh veggies are so good, you wouldn't think that would be hard. But, I've come to realize why some foods are called convenience food. BECAUSE THEY ARE CONVENIENT, THAT'S WHY! Anyway, fresh veggies are delicious and so much better for us and you can't be the price, if they are free!
These are cucumbers marinated in vinegar. Just peel and slice them and place in a shallow dish. Then pour a little vinegar in the dish and if you like, sprinkle black pepper on top.

I put the okra in a plastic bowl that has a tight fitting cover and sprinkle some corn meal on top. Cover and shake.
Place a little oil in a frying pan on medium heat and add the okra. Cover and stir often until the okra are lightly browned and tender.
Some gifted corn ready to be shucked:
The shucks go into our little compost bin.
