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

I love hominy. I had to explain to my city slicker friends what it is. Couldn't believe they never heard of it let alone never ate it.

Sara, another mouth water meal!

This week I made a chicken broccoli casserole. We ate it two nights. Tonight, it is Greek spaghetti and salad. Pumpkin bread for dessert.

For my big meal of the day, lunch, it's kale, Irish potatoes, link sausage, homemade hambone broth, and home dried oregano.

My chicken breasts turned out delish! They made a ton! The next night, we had the rest of them, and I made home fries in the skillet from the leftover potatoes. On the side, homemade pancakes with decaf coffee. MMMMMMM good!

Last night, I made boneless ribs on the grill with a side of homemade pasta salad, made with mayo, dill, homemade pickles, carrots, and tomatoes from the garden. It was Heavenly!

Tonight, I am thinking crock pot chili with pumpkin - a nod to fall.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Tonight we are having a new recipe: Garlic Honey Chicken breasts. Looks good, made in the skillet. On the side, blue potatoes roasted in the oven, a fresh green salad with blueberry basil dressing, and for dessert, berry cobbler.

I am currently canning dill pickles. ;)

spaghetti pie at this house tonight.

Corn, corn, and more corn is what we have been eating. I can never get enough of fresh corn. So far just one racoon here and he hasn't been in the corn. We are stuffing it full of cat food each night---letting it have all it wants. Hopefully it will stay out of the patch until I can get it in the freezer.

Nicole your dinners sound so yummy. I haven't had taboule in years. Will have to make it soon.

Nibbling my way through the day. Not in the mood to cook. Did finish putting up pear butter this morning so it'll be on the menu later in the week.

Last night, I made chicken breast sautéed in olive oil with veggie broth and white wine, with capers. On the side was taboule salad. We have not eaten that in so long! I make mine with fresh cucumber and tomatoes from the garden, with lemon juice and fresh mint. Ate the rest for lunch, got in trouble with dd since I did not leave her any, (giggle). Baked homemade chocolate chip cookies with dark choc chips for dessert, left her some of those so I am redeemed.

Tonight I am making beef stew. It is a bit grey with a chill to the air.

What’s on your table?

Nicole

I love soup better than anything but it's too hot for me to even think about soup. I'm having fresh corn on the cob and fresh mustard greens---also potato salad made with freshly dug potatoes. It's a garden food day.

I'm making bean soup today. My sister gave me a hambone so I made broth the other day. I'll use part of the broth and add a pint of one of my home canned dried beans; potatoes; onions; can tomatoes; and herbs. Will freeze rest of the broth in ice cube trays. Will be good & handy to season vegetables and soups.

Sorry girls, I have been off the grid. Wanting to spend as much time as I could with my dd for summer. She is starting senior year.

Cole Slaw! Love all kinds!

Tonight I am not sure what will be on the menu. Will check the garden and decide. Hmmm....

Nancy---glad you want to learn to cook. The coleslaw sounds good. Do you mean one and a half teaspoons of vinegar or tablespoons? I never thought of using honey. My husband likes about everything I cook. So I am lucky. Not cooking nothing fancy these days---just simple summer food.

Hey everyone,
I promised Hubby I would learn to cook once I retired. Like any resolution I haven't kept up. Tonight however I made panko dijon salmon in my toaster oven. I also been experimenting on Hubby with coleslaw recipes. I made a batch earlier this week. It was very tart and I loved it. Hubby not so much. Tonight I made a batch similar to KFC. We also had steamed string beans and Texas toast. Didn't realize how easy coleslaw is to make. The sauce was 1/2 cup mayo, 1 1/2 of ACV and of honey, celery salt to taste.

The tart one was 1 cup mayo 1/3 cup ACV Tbs pepper 2tsp salt and celery salt to taste.

Oh my goodness Dawn! I make a dressing just like that. But haven't done with zest, will try that too. So good. Even without the mayo and a touch of salt or parm.
I have a new favorite dressing that I got from Darci Isabella (youtuber, minimalist mother of 10; I love her channel; I have never seen young kids get so excited by raw veggies)
It is:
1 clove garlic
1 cup yogurt
1 t salt (I use about 1/2)
4 oz asiago cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
1 t turmeric
pinch cayenne
handful of fresh parsley
Buzz in blender. It is addicting
ddmashayekhi Posted - Jul 24 2019 : 07:36:14 AM
Sara, the tomatoes were delicious, I used a combination of heirloom and cherry ones. Lisa the recipe was simple and I whipped it up in the morning to give the flavors time to meld. We only eat homemade dressings, the bottled kind don't taste as well and actually bother me. Hope you try this one soon.

Lemony Romaine Dressing
Zest of 2 lemons and juice of one
2 small garlic cloves minced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Whisk together lemon zest and juice, garlic, and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in oil. Season with salt and pepper toss with romaine salad wedges.

My youngest son loves Sloppy Joe sandwiches and I made him some tonight. I haven't made them for him for such a long time and when I was going through my recipe book I came across the recipe and I had written Joe loves this at the top of the page. He was so happy I made them for him. I made potato salad to go with it and cut up some watermelon. Yummy.

Oh Dawn that sounds mouthwatering! What was in the dressing?
Always on the lookout for a new one.
YellowRose Posted - Jul 23 2019 : 08:02:20 AM
Oh, Dawn it all sounds soooo good. Would love to have some of your tomatoes with feta cheese with my lunch.

Last night was my middle son's birthday, so I made us a big dinner. I used Martha Stewart's new "Grilling" cookbook and grilled up steaks, onions, potatoes, and a romaine salad with her homemade dressing that was delicious! I also made blistered heirloom tomatoes with broiled feta cheese on top and served it with a middle eastern flatbread. Finally we had a KY brown butter cake with strawberries and blueberries tossed with honey & lemon and I whipped up some heavy cream to go with it. Oh yum and boy was I ever tired when we were done eating!

Keep creating!
