Quick Lunch

ML left for college yesterday (worthy of its own post) and Mike is out of town for the morning. Nothing really to eat in the frig, and I was hungry. I'll probably do some good gourmet burgers on the grill or the broiler for supper, so didn't want anything really big. So - I opened a bottle of V-8, added one can of green beans, one can of white beans, and a little frozen corn. Added a little onion powder, garlic powder, and parsley. Cooked it for about 10 minutes on the stovetop. Delicious! And enough for a couple more meals.

(Those gourmet burgers are at one of our nearby grocery stores - Burgundy Mushroom, Bleu Cheese, or Bacon Cheeseburger varieties. Made from scratch, and fairly high dollar, on the fresh fish and thick-cut steak counter - unless you go in the morning around 9:00 and get the marked down ones from yesterday that they've gone ahead and wrapped for quick sale and put with the regular ground beef. Same hamburgers, much better value.)

And this is what I picked this morning! Though the hot, dry weather is difficult to endure, nice tomatoes are the silver lining (red lining?).
