If you make your hamburger patties with a depression in the middle, they won't 'ball up' on the grill.

Dinner tonight will be Swai Fillets with red peppers & onions (swai is a firm white fish), corn on the cob, and salad. Home made donuts for desert. I have enough to spare if anybody just happens to drop by around 6pm!!

Last night's meatloaf was delish. Made sweet potato oven fries and a salad with 1/3 mix greens, 2/3 garbanzo beans, corn, peas, and naval oranges tossed with sweet poppyseed dressing.

Tonight I get a night off from cooking. We are having a pizza from Connecticut's "famous" Pepe's pizza, as tonight only 15% of the checks there go to benefit the animal rescue shelter we got our dear doggie from!

Tonight we are trying a new Breakfast Bean Burrito - stuffed with farm fresh eggs, yellow squash, organic black beans and brown rice, poblano peppers, and onion. All of it topped with pico de gallo.

If we like it well enough, it will be made for future breakfast meals.

The Corned beef is in the slow cooker after 8 days in the brine, (because I'm not home to make it regularly) and we're eating tonight because the boy who hails from County Cavan has to work the next 5 nights!

I also put my potatoes, carrots and onions in the slow cooker and will make the buttered cabbage when I get home, along with the loaf of soda bread I simply couldn't bring myself to make last night at 11:00.

Last night was "Hamburger Splits" with a side of steamed asparagus (because it had to be used!).

Ground beef for burgers (I season mine with some Kansas City Bbq hot and spicy seasoning)
Hamburger buns
Mashed potatoes
Beef gravy

I used Fox Hollow Farm (from Jefferson County, about an hour from me) organic grass fed ground beef made into burgers. Meanwhile, make some mashed potatoes (or take some from the many containers of homemade then frozen that you have in your freezer), and warm some beef gravy. When the burgers are done, brown the hamburger buns slightly, put the burger on the bun, cut it in half and add a HUGE dollop of mash and then pour gravy over top of the whole thing. Comfort food at its best--I serve it on one of those old diner "platter" style plates that your breakfast comes on. It's a true "blue plate special"!!

This recipe hails from a soda shop in Grove City, Ohio that my mom used to frequent as a teen. This was her favorite thing to eat and she always made it for me when I was growing up. Now I make it for my husband!

I wasn't thrilled with our burritos. They lack flavor. I may make it again and add jalapeno peppers to it.

Not sure about today....
I'm heading out to take one dd to the doctor and will run short of dinner prep time.
Leftovers maybe.

Tonight I'm going to whip up some hash leftover corned beef, potatoes, onions and peppers. I have some farm fresh eggs and some homemade Guinness Mustard that will mix in nicely!

Sorry I am a bit late on changing the date. Busy, busy day. Tonight I'm making grilled lemon chicken with a side of my favorite garbanzo bean salad. It has tomatoes, garbanzos, feta, fresh basil and fresh mint tossed with olive oil and white wine vinegar.

Hugs,
Nicole

Busy day ahead, busy evening, so we are having hot dogs. (At least they are organic grass fed beef hotdogs)!

Great picture! I was feeling guilty about not having something along the lines of Irish soda bread or cabbage in honor or St. Patty's day - made a lazy woman's "pizza" instead with some homemade pita bread from my sister (delish - Joy, you rock!), topped with mango salsa and shredded cheese, yum!

Back to the basics...four chickens, two dogs, one boy and a DH

Last night, we had homemade corned beef, roasted Brussels sprouts, hashbrown casserole, and Green River floats for dessert.

we don't keep along the "Irish" lines when it comes to cooking on St. Paddy's Day. It's my husband's birthday, and he's not in the least Irish. (but me and my kids are!) Yes, his name is Pat.
I digress. We had a steak, breaded chicken cutlets, rice, salad and a special dish my mother-in-law makes, potatoes and spinach.
Yes, dessert was birthday cake!

Cold and Windy Day here in Florissant, CO too Sharon, it is just me tonight so I will have my leftover St. Paddy's Day meal. Everyone's meals sound fabulous.
Can not wait to meet you next month Sharon at CJ's, heck I can not wait to meet CJ either, but I sure feel like I have known her forever.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Debbie

Sorry to hear you both have snow, Colorado farmsisters! DH said today he will not take the snow thrower off the tractor until April, despite our warm sunny days. DD got a sunburn on her face yesterday at the Girl Scout Cookie booth. Tonight's dinner was simple but so good. Such a nice transition to Spring meals. Hugs,

Nicole
