tonight’s dinner…. starring Texas

Now, a vegetarian Texas meal is almost unheard of… but I was a vege there for a few years and it can be done! It is much easier now than in the ’80s. Progress, yeeehawww!

Cheese Grits

Wilted Greens with Peanuts

Spicy refried cheesy beans

Sliced Tomatoes

Sweet Tea

Granny cookies

Cinco thinks the salad looks delightful.

Sweet Tea Recipe

1 cup fresh mint leaves
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
6 tea bags OR 12 teaspoons tea leaves
12 cups boiling waterlemon slice
fresh mint leaves

Combine mint, sugar and 2 cups water in a saucepan. Simmer 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. Now you have mint simple syrup! Place tea in crockery pitcher and pour  boiling water. Let stand until cool. Remove tea bags/ strain tea leaves. Strain sugar syrup into cooled tea. Refrigerate. When cold, pour into glasses with ice. Garnish with slices of lemon and sprigs of fresh mint leaves.
