Running out of time, no time to go to the store. Want a sample side dish for a grilled pork chop or chicken? We all forget that some canned vegetables are not all that bad. Now I am a fan of fresh, but there are a few I keep on hand, and potatoes are one of them. I use them in soups to make a hearty soup for dinner in just minutes and now and then pan saute with butter and seasoning. Ninety percent of time I use fresh, but a few canned, frozen vegetables and beans are a great go to that you should always have on hand.
