This is a classic vegetarian dish that I made simple by incorporating a variety of canned beans and making it a cook all together dish in one pot over low heat. This dish would work well in a slow cooker, too. It's for a vegetarian friend who works at a local gallery and has little time or desire to cook for herself. Be sure to use low sodium beans, and have plenty of friends over to enjoy the soup. It's makes around 10 servings, not including toppings. The soup does freeze well in pint-size containers.

Hagerstown resident Julia Brugh gets together with her mother and sisters every year to harvest and can produce. They call themselves the Wildcat Growers Cooperative. Brugh said the idea behind the End of the Garden Pickle is to take anything that is left from your garden and use it in the relish. "The End of the Garden pickle was produced on Columbus Day every year," Brugh said. "Mom took all the leftover vegetables that there was not enough to do with individually, and she made this pickle.

Gather 'round children, for this is the parable of the two naughty goats, and there are many lessons within the story that will guide you through life. The two naughty goats lived in a beautiful mountain setting with two kind, benevolent owners. They had an idyllic existence, in a wondrous green fairyland, where all the swords had been beaten into ploughshares and all the branch banks had been converted into Dunkin' Donuts. The two kind, benevolent owners always made sure the two naughty goats had plenty to eat. Every morning and every evening, the owners supplied the two naughty goats with armfuls of golden hay, free from chemicals, preservatives or high-fructose corn syrup.

The list of reasons to eat veggies is a long one: Vegetables play an important role in weight management.   They are naturally low in calories and cholesterol, are fat-free and packed with health-enhancing phytonutrients.    Veggies help protect bones and prevent strokes.  Green leafy vegetables are closely linked to heart health.  Yellow-orange and green veggies reduce the risk of diabetes. Summer brings another important reason to eat more veggies.
