Side Dishes

Looking for a nice side dish to compliment your dinner or lunch? Sometimes the side dishes steal the show. That is my goal with these. Come for the main course but stay for the side dishes lol. I kind of lump appetizers in with this category as well so you will find a few of those here too. I enjoy a good side dish. Sometimes when I go to a restaurant all I order are sides because they are so good. One of my favorite places to enjoy some cheap tasty sides is Applebees after 9pm for their happy hour half priced appetizers. :)
