Table Talk: July 29

(article, Kim O'Donnel)

p(blue).(Editor's note: This chat is over, but the transcript is available to read here. And join Kim for another Table Talk chat, most Thursdays.)

Although eating less meat (or no meat) may be easier in the summer, when fresh vegetables are plentiful, there are still challenges. After all, isn't grilling everyone's favorite way to cook during warm months? And is there anything easier than burgers on the barbie? 

Well, sure. And Kim O'Donnel wants to talk about it.
