Heehee. When a plate lunch or dinner at a restaurant allows you to "pick X vegetables," it's our way of saying "pick X side items" ^_^ Mostly because the majority of the choices will actually be veggies, or at least contain some (e.g. mac n cheese w/Rotel diced tomatoes). And hey, mac n cheese includes flour! That...kinda counts, right?

At a local "Southern Buffet" the vegetables choices usually are:
Green beans
Corn casserole
Mashed potatoes and gravy
Mac & cheese
Rice
Fried okra
Turnip greens
Fried green tomatoes

3 out of 8 ain't bad.

Knowledge vs. Wisdom
Knowledge: Tomatoes are a fruit.
Wisdom: You don't put them in a fruit salad.

At my local Mission BBQ, the green beans have bacon in them. I bet the beans do too. They do have a decent side salad, though.
