We all know how important it is to eat our vegetables. But how often do we make a delicious main dish, only to think: What can I serve with this? I often see references to "Serve with a lightly steamed vegetable..." but sometimes I'm out of ideas for a tasty vegetable to go with my meal. So use this group to share some of your tastiest vegetable recipes. New, old, tried and true - whatever! I look forward to seeing your good veggie suggestions. Please limit posts to recipes containing vegetables and fruits.

Still having a hard time dealing with my niece’s sudden death (no answers from the autopsy yet).
Also, her mother, my sister Nancy, had a double mastectomy last week and I have been with her. They send them home too early – she has 4 drains that require nursing care. I don’t know what some people do who aren’t as smart as she is! She has to empty the drains several times a day and record the amount of drainage from each one separately. It will be next week before she gets 2 of them out, and the week after before they are all out.
And of course, tonight I am up late, eating a very late dinner because there wasn’t time for me to do so at work. I am really fed up with my team leader and work situation – seems like I get handed the brunt of all the tough cases over and over again. Even the day shift team lead has mentioned that she doesn’t think the assignments are fair. So I have to sit up late after eating – just so I don’t get indigestion from lying down on a full stomach.
But I have GREAT NEWS on the horizon! I have found a new job. I start July 25. I will be a post-partum, labor & delivery nurse at another facility in Knoxville. I will only have to work 3 shifts per week – 12 hour shifts, but just think of the time off. I’m hoping to use the extra time to get my Masters. And of course, to go see little Judah and his new baby brother who is due in August.
Sorry to post this in so many groups, I just wanted everyone to know I’m still around and occasionally read all your posts. Great news that Zelda has been found. Please let me know of anything else earth-shattering I have missed over the last few weeks.

Remove husk and silk from the corn. Make a compound butter (mix soft butter with flavoring ingredients). Coat the ears of corn with the compound butter. Wrap the corn in foil. Bake at 425 for about 30 minutes. Corn will still be lightly cooked. Increase time for more well-done corn. If a different temperature oven is used, adjust time accordingly.
For two ears of corn, I mixed the grated zest of a lime, a big pinch of salt, and several grindings of lemon pepper in a scant two tablespoons of softened unsalted butter. The resulting corn was delicious. I'll try to remember to take pictures and write up a recipe next time I do it.

Honeydew melon for breakfast, cream of broccoli soup and green salad for lunch, and a nice corned beef brisket with cabbage and green Irish potatoes for supper.

We've made this soup for years and loved it. Can be done on the stove top, but we did it in the microwave so the kids could easily share in its creation.
