“Good and well” synonymous with “welcome”? ?

Bring something nice to the potluck. Vegetables are well and good too. 

Does the sentence sound natural?

    There are *two* sentences.

    1.  Bring something nice to the potluck. 

    2.  Vegetables are well and good too. The expression "well and good" isn't used that way.   Just say vegetables are good.

    Bring something nice to the potluck - vegetable dishes are always welcome.

    Mind you, quite what constitutes "nice" is open to interpretation. Why would anyone bring something "nasty".

    Bring something nice to the potluck. this is a grammatically correct sentence. Nice is not my favourite word but it gets the point across.

    Vegetables are well and good too. Doesnt really say what you want it to. I would say something like Feel free to bring vegetables, or Vegetables would be good too.

    For the man question, no. They are not synonymous. For the second, no, but it can be improved by making it, Vegetables are good, too.
