Hi Farmgirls!

MMMmmmm, mmmm. I am making one of my favorite meals for my dd and dh tonight. Homemade Texas chili, served with fresh buttermilk cornbread baking in my cast iron skillet. Will top the chili off with cheese and sour cream, and wash it all down with fresh-brewed ice tea! It's a chilly night out, so it's a "chili" night in! Wishing I had a kitchen-full of farmgirls to share it with!

Does anyone else have anything yummy you're cooking up tonight?

Farmgirl Hugs,

Nicole

Andrea that sounds so good. Grilled cheese is one of my all-time favorite foods. I made bison chili with red beans and had it over cornbread. Four servings for the freezer. June in Texas is not quite the weather for chili, but Aldi had ground bison, so I ordered a pkg.

Grilled cheese on home-made bread (bread machine) with spinach from the garden.

Hi ladies, sorry I missed your questions about porketta. It's a boneless pork roast with seasoning on it. I have a seasoning I mix myself that has several herbs & spices - mainly parsley and paprika. Stores sell these and put a lot of pepper on them which I don't like.
I roll the pork roast in the seasoning mix and put it in the crock pot.

Today I made a bakeover. Leftover hamburgers chopped up, carrots, onions, fresh spinach, a can of stewed tomatoes, cheddar cheese, herbs d' provence. It was so good!!

Enjoy your camping trip Judith! For dinner tonight, we're having salmon with a Raw Rainbow Pad Thai Salad. It goes well on our hot summer nights down here in the Southern Hemisphere.

We’re up in the hills this weekend camping in the mist and fog. A big pot of lima beans and ham is cooking.

Andrea, what is porketta?

Today for lunch/brunch it's bacon, avocado, tomatoes with green chilies sandwich. Lunch/brunch is my big meal of the day. Depending on what time I get up I call it lunch or brunch. lol

Porketta in the crockpot and mac & cheese. My body didn't know about the time change so it's only 10am and I can smell it already!

With cooler weather here my cooking cravings are kicking in. Today I crave making wholewheat bread and lentil soup.

It's been a couple of months since I last visited "What's for dinner tonight?". It's cooler today so I'm using my oven to make ground pork stuffed poblano peppers with brown rice.

Corkscrews with creamy zucchini sauce. Corkscrew pasta, zucchini, butter, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, salt, and nutmeg. This time I added some onion, garlic and used asiago cheese instead since that's what I had.

Last night we grilled chicken using a new rub blend, “Bone Sucking Sauce Rub”. It was delicious! I made a kale slaw on the side and roasted potatoes.

Tonight we are grilling these yummy organic chicken and asiago sausages we found, and on the side, a broccoli salad recipe I got from a farmgirl friend about ten years ago. So delish! For dessert, hubs has requested a berry cobbler from the fresh berries we have picked. They are mostly wineberries (a wild raspberry type) with blueberries and blackberries. I use my great-grandma’s cobbler recipe, served with ice cream on top.

What’s on your table?

I made the best dinner last night - all new recipes. We love Asian food, but we can’t eat it out anymore because of the sodium and the additives they use like MSG.

Last night, I made my favorite Asian dish when eating out, but at home: Coconut Yellow Curry Chicken. I used fresh chicken, carrots, scallions, peppers, and lots of fresh sugar snap peas from the garden, simmered in a golden curry sauce served over jasmine rice. It was scrumptious! For dessert, I tried a new recipe on a whim and loved it: “Seven Ingredient Lemon Blender Pie”. I found the recipe by accident on Pinterest, and thought, “Why not?” It was fabulous!!!

I did a lot of cooking over the weekend for dd’s birthday - chicken smothered in bbq sauce, homemade potato salad, and a birthday cake. My kitchen is my happy place, for sure.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

I love stuffed peppers. I don't think I've made the same recipe twice. I just use what's around and it always comes out good. I need to count the dimples on the bottom of the peppers now that I've learned 4 dimple peppers are better for stuffing :-)

Sara, did you try making the tzatiki sauce? How did you like it? It is so refreshing!

It has been hot here and I had my kitchen floor repaired (old tiles replaced where a few were cracked, a few places regrouted), so my kitchen was closed for a few days. Felt like cooking something different today so tonight was stuffed green peppers. It is my daddy’s recipe from when I was a child. He made it up and it was so good, it became a staple!

Keeping it simple tonight. Chili relleno casserole, tortillas, and parsnips. Fresh apricots for dessert.
We love tzatziki, especially on falafel, and I have all the fixins. Maybe tomorrow night.

We love gyros and tzatziki, especially Danny! I make vegetarian ones for me. Got real fond of them while in Germany. We woukd go 2 times a week to our favorite Greek restaurant!! Perfect dinner for summer weather too!

We've been eating a lot of cucumber salad, corn on the cob and Dr's grilled ribs.
Just too darned hot for much of anything really!

Hi Sara,

It is actually Greek in origin. I love to make it in the summer and use as a dip for fresh veggies like snow peas and carrots, or for crackers. I also use it as a salad dressing. It has a yogurt base, so my daughter sadly can not eat it anymore (she loved it when she could). I take 8 oz. of greek organic yogurt, one peeled cucumber, two cloves of garlic, juice of one whole lemon, and either fresh dill (several sprigs) or about 1 tsp of dried (I like it heavy on the dill. You can use less, if you prefer). Salt to taste, about 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. Blend in a blender of food processor. Great on pita sandiwiches with oregano-lemon grilled chicken and greens or with gyro meat, which was how it was originally used.

Enjoy your grilling! Sounds like a wonderful day ahead for you! Xoxo

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole, what is tzatziki sauce?

We're grilling at my sister's today. Steak, hamburgers, pasta salad, and iced tea. The ranch store she worked for sent all employees who worked through the pandemic a box of steaks and beef patties.

Last night I made a pork roast with fresh rosemary and garlic in the air fryer because it is too darn hot to turn the oven on. We had a side of green beans, broccoli, and leeks in an olive oil sauce and baked beans. The night before was a yummy treat:: I bought gyro meat from Costco. I don’t normally buy stuff like that, but made it with onions and homemade tzatziki sauce. The sauce was soooo good. Also made a greek salad.

With this intense heat, tonight might just be cold cereal. What’s on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Okra was a big thing in my home growing up, but I don’t like it when it is boiled. However, I can’t stop eating it when it is pickled or fried though! YUM! However, it does not grow well in my zone. :(

Last night was “pickings”. We had so much food the day before. I ended up tired and eating a half of an everything bagel with fresh vegetable cream cheese from our local bagel store. Hubs buys fresh bagels, hot from the oven, every once in a while.

The night before, we had special company: the lady who was my daughter’s Girl Scout Gold Award Mentor. I made a huge, fresh salad with greens, herbs andpeas from the garden, and my chicken in wine sauce with pasta and artichoke hearts. For dessert, homemade blueberry lemon bread, which is not too sweet so it is a perfect summer treat. Also good for breakfast! Tonight I am making a Thai recipe - chicken and snow peas in cocunut curry sauce.


Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Goodness, Cindy! That sounds awesome! I never think to use chocolate in anything other than baking and chili... I'm going to have to try that! Thank you for sharing!

Judith - Ribs! Venison! YUM!!!

Honest to Pete, girls - I have never had okra! I wouldn't even know what to do with it! I don't think I've ever seen it here in the stores or at the farms, either! Hopefully some day we can try it! Sounds YUM!

I have no idea what we're having for dinner tonight. Last night I made a big meatzza so we could have some in the freezer....it's just THAT good. Tonight I'm thinking of going light - some sort of salad with meat and cheese, or maybe just an all veggie fare. Just feeling a bit uninspired. Still full from my meatzza last night I guess! LOL!

Hugs,

Nini

Sara just a heads up,
My son found it for me in a Sports Store. Up here the grocery stores don't carry it. But Neal lives in Ft Worth and is a hiker so he visits those shops often. It contains salt, red peppers, black pepper, and garlic. It is made in Louisiana and is certified Cajun. This is likely more than than you wanted to know....but.

Judith and Kathy it's good to know there are others who like okra and tomatoes too. Gotta see if I can find "Slap ya MaMa" Cajun spice. Love the name - makes me giggle.
