Can I just say......

We have been loving frozen veggies from Publix lately! Seriously, my cooking has been out of control for the past two weeks. And, by out of control, I mean we have been eating either a Lean Cuisine or a Smart Ones, coupled with a frozen veg. (And don't even tell me about the sodium and other crapola in these meals). I have no desire to cook right now, and we are trying to shed some of these vacay pounds we have picked up. Namely, me and my 6 friends pounds.

However, these bags of Publix veggies have been right on. I am learning how to make veggies like my mom-in that they don't taste like cardboard. I have actually purchased a HAM HOCK in the past week and actually USED IT. Oh yeah, the collards and black eyed peas made with said ham hock were rockin.

Our collards were chopped-this was a stock image.

And our butter beans were frozen, not organically bagged and dry. :D

Seriously, between husband and I, we eat the entire bag of veggies. And would keep eating more if we had them. I guess this is a "good" problem to have.......
On another note, we are leaving for Tampa on Wednesday for a family visit, so posting will be sparse. As will commenting. C'est la vie ladies, c'est la vie.
Love to all!
Don't forget about my blog sale going on now!


  1. That is an AWESOME problem to have! Try bean soup in the winter with a ham hock. Oh my. It is goodness.

  2. You purchased a ham hock? Go girl!

    Have fun in the Tamp (as we Orlando kids called it in high school:)!

  3. I'm impressed! We just do those microwaveable steamer veggies!

  4. Hope you have a great time in Tampa!

    I have never been a fan of frozen veggies - except frozen corn. I can eat that all day!

  5. Frozen veggies are awesome, great way to keep it simple and get what you need at the same time. Yum...sweet carrots. :)

  6. Ohh very nice! Enjoy the vacation! I am a huge fan of frozen peas and corn, I try to always keep several bags on hand!

  7. I have been going hog wild with the veggies on the grill lately. I just throw them all in chopped up with some olive oil... Yummy!!!!

    Looks like everything is going well in your neck of the woods. I promise, I am going to be checking in more often now!!

  8. is it bad that I said eww to myself when I saw the picture of the greens?


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
