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

Today I made coffee pot roast out of MJ's Cast Iron Kitchen cook book on pg 118. It was standing at the stove eating out of the enamel cast iron Dutch oven good. The recipe is a keeper and I didn't change it a bit.

Nicole, there's always room at my table for another plate - come on down. Your beef stew with wine and tarragon sounds wonderful over cornbread.

I can't believe it. It's the first day of school being out, first day of summer for us, and it is as cold, grey and rainy as a November day! I am going to make a big pot of BEEF STEW with red wine, potatoes, carrots, peas, pearl onions and tarragon. Will make a batch of cornbread for the side. Made MJ's pancake recipe, though I used almond milk instead of cow's milk, for breakfast. So good!

Sara, your canning sounds wonderful! Wish I was joining you for lunch!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

This morning I canned 4 pints Lila dried bean grown in Mexico. I added fresh turnip greens to the leftover beans & broth. They're cooking away on the stove and should be ready for a early lunch. A smoked pork chop will go nicely with the beans & greens.

Thanks Nicole for the sweet words about my cooking. Should have been here today when it was cashew butter on wheat bread with bananas and a glass of Merlot.

Sara, I love all the meals you make. I envision your kitchen to be such a homey, warm and cozy place with lots of good food sprinkled with love!

Last night dd had her bf over so I made her favorite meal I make: chicken in wine with kale and mushrooms. On the side was a garbanzo, onion, tomato, and feta salad tossed with a vinaigrette. We had blueberry ice cream for dessert which was very refreshing.

Tonight we had a quick bite at a local hole in the wall, called Burgerritoville. We had burgerritos, which are hamburgers but tucked inside flour tortillas. It is OUT OF THIS WORLD good and a bit naughty, but we exercised a lot today.

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Wow, Nicole all your meals sound delish.

I canned corncob broth this morning and had a scant cup leftover. Added pint of home canned dried beans and a 10oz can of diced tomatoes with chilies, lime, and cilantro. The soup is tasty and have enough for today and tomorrow.

As long as I have a good broth I can throw something into it for soup.

Tina, that sounds divine!!

I made a pot roast, in red wine, with a pan of Greek macaroni and cheese. I also made turkey burgers with a kale salad and a side of cauliflower soup. One night was chicken shish kebobs. Tonight I am making chicken fajitas tonight with carrots, onions, peppers, cheese, and corn tortillas.

Hi Lisa,
I have been married for 32 years and still make mistakes like that. Bless our Hubby's hearts for saving our feelings. Yes and I have messed up quite a few meals that even my canine children won't touch.

Lisa, my friend, you got my morning going with a laugh. Been there - done that - keep adding stuff to a dish that wasn't going to get any better. Just more to throw away. Remember years ago when I did that and the dog wouldn't even eat it.

I made the world's worst meal tonight. I started with some leftover chicken pulled from a whole bird I cooked a few days ago. I took some of the scrapings and sautéed in a cast iron pan, then added the leftover chicken. Seasoned and topped with some leftover mashed potatoes and put in oven. At this point I am thinking sort of a chicken, shepherds pie/sort of pot pie. But I am out of carrots and celery. I looked in the oven and thought it needed something. So I added bread crumbs. Huge mistake. The glue that I had created was getting out of control. So I added some sour cream and a can of mushrooms and stirred it all together. BLECHHH! I warned hubby and called it Chicken Glue. He ate it, bless his heart and he said it was good. It WAS NOT....Filler for the dogs food. Ick. Need to make up for this disaster tomorrow night.

Oh Sara...your meals always make my mouth water!!

I made a delicious batch of shisk ke bob (spelling?)...hang on...shish kebab...there, that's better. I used chicken and then on separate skewers I used veggies: tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, onion and pineapple. Made my own marinade using the pineapple juice, molasses, garlic, onion powder, olive oil, salt and spicy steak spice. OH SO GOOD! Grilled and put over rice with a side of baked beans. Had a chocolate tart for dessert that my dd bought for me for Mother's Day.

Tonight it is chilly, so I am making a yummy quiche with a side of cauliflower soup!

What's cookin' farmgirls?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

I've made corned beef that I marinated in a brine for days. I've bought corned beef and cooked it with cabbage but to make corned beef hash I go to Libby's corned beef in a can. That's what I'm having for supper.

Nicole, Dried beans cooked with kale or another green is one of my favorite things to cook and eat.

Leftover ground beef veg soup for lunch and baked potato for supper. A baked potato with herb apple cider vinegar is my go to supper.

(Hanging head) well...it's been far too long since I have logged on, but am glad to be back logging on.


It's been a bit chilly. I made a wonderful pot of beans from dried ones. Soaked overnight, then rinsed and simmered low all day with fresh garlic, onion, ham (less fat than bacon but adds flavor),kale, bone chicken broth, seasoned with cumin and chili powder. DELISH! Served with corn bread made with almond milk and a strawberry streusel cake on the side. Tonight will be lighter fare after such a feast. Not sure what yet...ideas???

I like using my crockpot to slow cook a pork loin roast in barbeque sauce. It falls apart and is tender. We then pile it on a roll for a BBQ sandwich along with coleslaw. Yum! Annie

Just last week I braved a zoo of people to snatch me a discounted Instapot. I am so in love with it. One of the best investments I have made. So far I have made steamed corn, fettuccine Alfredo, and taco pasta. Tonight I will be making a chicken pot pie casserole in it. I'm excited to try it and see what the family thinks! The hardest part has been deciding which recipes to try first.

Happy St Patrick Day!

I am making colcannon and chicken. I don't eat pork so Hubby agrees to chicken as long as it is Shake N Bake BBQ. I never made colcannon (Irish mashed potatoes) before. I found out through tracing my roots I am mostly Irish. My BFF is also mostly Irish. She gives me the business for not knowing how to cook Irish. I then remind her we both grew up in Orange County, Ca., only a few miles from the beach and Disneyland and almost 6000 miles from Tipperary.

Katherine, that sounds really really yummy.

I made another successful express cooker meal. I made chicken tacos. Found the recipe on you tube.
Cup and a quarter of chicken broth in the bottom.
Add trivet then place chicken breasts on trivet.
Sprinkle packet of taco seasons over chicken.
Cook for 30min on poultry setting.

After cooking quick release and shut off EC. Take chicken out put in bowl and shred. Put chicken back in EC IN the broth and put on saute setting low. Prepare your fixins such as grating your cheese, chopping your onions etc. The broth will reduce while you are prepping. Fix your tacos and enjoy.

I am making a German Bake Over recipe that I found in one of the posts here in the Farmgirl connection. It sounded so good and I had everything to make it. Thank you to whomever posted it. :)
Potatoes
Sauerkraut
Brats
Swiss Cheese
Some Stone Ground Mustard
Enough to make 4 cups, then a Bake Over crust made with Mary Jane's Budget Mix. I have tried to make my own mix making the recipe in the Idea Book but it didn't even compare to the yummy goodness of hers!!

Sounds really good, Sara.

I don't know what hubby will make tonight. I am at work, and he's home. Last night, he smoked some bacon with brown sugar and it was soooo good. He watches BBQ Pit Boys on YouTube and he has been smoking everything lately. Ha! No complaints from me!
