Kristina, thanks so much!!!

Tonight I am capital-E exhausted! Making a quick dinner: organic fresh ravioli stuffed with cheese and spinach, which I will toss with some chicken breast, veggies, and lemon and olive oil. Ever feel so tired you don't even want to eat? That's how I feel today. (But it is all good).

A friend of mine posted this Gooey Butter Cake on FB. It sounds rather good.


GOOEY BUTTER CAKE
Ingredients
1 box yellow cake mix (18¼ oz)
3 eggs
2 sticks Tillamook Butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
16 oz powdered sugar

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine the cake mix, one egg, and one stick of melted butter in an electric mixer. When well mixed, pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13”x9” baking pan.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the 2 remaining eggs, vanilla, and the other stick of butter and beat together. Add the powdered sugar (but reserve a bit for the topping!) and mix well.
Spread cream cheese mixture over cake batter and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until top is golden but center is still gooey. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into bite-sized pieces.

Anyone care to try it?

I am sorry, I haven't been changing the date the last few weeks. Happy to see that there are current posts. despite that the date still read mid-December! That butter cake sounds yummy!! I thought it would be fun to make it to a year (January 9th...a year of menu ideas)! After that, will see.

Anyway, it's a frozen, icy world here today. I have tons of leftovers as I made dinner for some friends and their children at our house for a low-key New Year's Eve. SO...have a crockpot going of New Year's black-eyed peas,meant to cook them yesterday but plans changed, and will serve it with some leftover turkey and gravy (Lord help me, I am soooo over turkey. May I not see another twenty-pound roasting bird until next Thanksgiving)! Also have some leftover green beans and tomatoes, a yummy recipe made with a basil butter. Whatcha got cookin'?

After all the turkey, I am craving spice! Making enchiladas! Ole!

And your roasted asparagus sounds yummy, Sharon! What do you put on it? Garlic? Salt? Curious.

Hey Nicole,

I just drizzle with olive oil and toss with coarse ground sea salt. I've roasted with minced garlic before too and that's good too. I was lazy yesterday :)
Enchiladas sound wonderful! I love Mexican food in the winter.

Tonight is:
~Baked chicken with a Blackberry-Balsamic Glaze
~Mashed Sweet Potatoes
~Broccoli

Hubby and I are still sick so I just put on a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup. I am using two whole Cornish Hens as I am out of chicken but I know it will be just as good, then I will add homemade Amish Noodles. If this big pot of homemade soup and homemade bread does not make us feel better nothing will right? I have been sick for 9 days and hubby 7 so something has to give, sure takes a lot longer to get over illnesses the older we get.
Have a great day and feel better to all the other farmgirls and families out there who are sick too.
Hugs,
Debbie

We have been basically eating from the freezer and pantry.

Tonight it's a spicy chicken soup and Wheat-Corn Muffins.

Oh, Debbie! You poor thing! I hope you both get better soon! That's such a long time - it must seem like an eternity! I'll be praying for you!

It's fffff-rrrrr-eeeeee-zing here, and we're expecting even more snow. My toes feel like little ice cubes! Even with the heat turned up a little bit, it's brrrrrr-chilly! I've been drinking tea all day to keep warm, but what usually heats me from head to toe seems today to be cooling in the head just about the time it hits the toe! Eghads!!! So, tonight to warm our bones, I'm making one of our comfort food favorites - Mary Hunt's Three Packet Pot Roast! Since I don't want a lot of chemicals in our food, I substituted homemade ingredients for the packets. I used stew beef this time in lieu of a big roast, too. It's been in the crock pot since this morning, and the whole house smells wonderful - like Grandma's house! :) I can't wait! YUM!!!

Keep warm, but stay cool, girls!

Hugs -

Nini

Kristina, I hear ya! I'm pooped from cooking since New Year's Eve. So much food! So...
Tonight I'm making an easy pleaser! Take sausage (I'm using an all-natural, casing-free apple sausage made from organic chicken. Any sausage can be used...kielbasa, etc.) and slice it into "coins". Place in a casserole dish, lightly greased. Sprinkle with brown sugar, bake at 350 until the sugar melts and bubbles. I'm serving with a side of broccoli and homemade macaroni soufflé.

What's on your weekend menu?

Funny that you mentioned sausage and broccoli...

I ended up making another soup - Potato/sausage with garden broccoli. I flavored it with fresh rosemary, and wow! It was delicious.

Tonight it's taco salads. Yum! I have 2 jars of home canned taco sauce left and I am sure they will enjoyed tonight.

I'm putting a big ol' pork roast in the oven with homemade mashed potatoes with garlic and chives. I think I will make a yummy salad with mixed baby greens, sprouted seeds, tomato, carrots, olives, and toss it with some kind of new dressing...will hit the cookbooks. I also feel the need to bake a nice big loaf of bread or two. Add that to my to do list...yikes! Better get off the computer and tackle my chores. :)

That's it, Farmgirls! A year of dinners! It was a year ago today we started this posting! Making beef stroganoff with beef, mushrooms and mash potatoes (from my favorite vintage forties cookbook) tonight. What's on your table tonight, and do you think we should keep this post going a little longer?
