Summer Veggie Sauté

8:26 AM

She’s done it again!  Our wonderful neighbor participates in Farm to Family.  This business helps support local farmers by distributing their vegetables and other home grown products to sponsor families across the state.   It’s a great way to buy local plus you are guaranteed freshness and quality.  This week she gave us tomatoes, yellow squash, okra, eggplant, cucumbers AND fresh goat cheese!   Can you believe this was only a fraction of the stuff she received??? Pretty awesome.  She didn’t want these veggies to go to waste, so she shared her wealth! We are very lucky!

I was excited to present the veggies to the family, but I wanted to make sure we wouldn’t get any funny looks from the kids.  I found this recipe at and got to work.

What You Will Need:

1 large tomato

2 small yellow squash

12-14 okra pods, halved and chopped

1 (14.5 oz) can gold and white corn, drained

2 garlic cloves, chopped
