I am sorry I haven't been on here as regularly as I like to be, I've been getting dd ready for school (first week was great), and have had company.

Sharon, I sent you the link for the broccoli casserole recipe, so nice to "talk" to you. My prayers are with you and your family everyday. For the garbanzo bean salad: 2 cans rinsed, drained garbanzos, chopped fresh tomatoes, chopped fresh cucumbers, several sprigs fresh mint, several sprigs fresh basil, 1/4 to 1/2 cup feta cheese, salt, pepper, and toss all with 1/2 cup white wine vinegar and 1/4 cup olive oil. Delish!

Nini, will send you the aebleskiver recipe. :)

Last night was eggplant curry over rice, baked fried chicken. Yummy!

Hugs to all,
Nicole

Thanks, Nicole! I can't wait! If you have a chance, I'd sure love that broccoli casserole recipe, too! Broccoli is my favorite! And I really love that recipe for the garbanzo bean salad - thank you for sharing! You know... that eggplant curry recipe sounds so good, too.

I think we should start a farmgirl cookbook, don't you? Wouldn't it be great to do one of those fundraiser-type cookbooks that schools and organizations do? Everyone - ALL the farmgirls - could contribute. If possible, they could be purchased by anyone at cost, OR if they require us to do it for a profit (I don't know how that works), it might be kind of nice to set up a fund for helping our farmgirl sisters whenever they're in need, or, at the very least, send the money to a worthy cause in the name of MaryJane's Farmgirl Sisterhood.... We could all take a vote on it... Hmmm.... I really like that idea! I think it'd be one of the best cookbooks ever!

We had eggplant parmesan last night! And I used our string beans in lieu of spaghetti - cooked them right in the oven with sauce and cheese on top. SO good. I have so much eggplant out there, I've got to go picking today and cooking and freezing tomorrow. I'm very grateful!

Time to go glean the garden! Have a wonderful day!

Nini I think a farmgirl recipe cookbook is a wonderful idea!!! You go girl I am right behind you. I am sure there are many farmgirls who could put some really great recipes on here and start collecting and organizing them. You always have such great ideas.

I just made my first batch of goat cheese feta and it turned out pretty good. I am going to go and get the ingredients to make the garbonzo bean salad. I am excited about this recipe because it uses the feta and I now have almost 1 1/2 lbs of it.
Thanks for the recipe Nicole.....that came just in time.

:) Maybe the cookbook would be a lot easier to do than a Farmgirl Yearbook! LOL! If enough of us are interested, I think it would be SUCH a great thing! Have any of you done one of these cookbooks before? I did contribute to one of my girlfriend's kids school fundraiser cookbooks, but I have no idea how it works... I could ask my Mom, too. Her company has done them in the past, so maybe she could point us in the right direction... I am actually really excited about it! :)

Today we're going to have stuffed cabbage rolls for dinner! I'm planning on making plenty of extra for the freezer, too. There's nothing like pulling a good, home-cooked meal out of the freezer after a long, hard day of homeschool... And we've got plenty of those ahead of us, for sure! ;)

Happy day, girls!

I have been hostessing family from Denmark, then last week was on holiday with them in Florida. Meals were not up to me. We stayed at a rental home so we grilled a lot.

Tonight was the first big meal I've made in a while. It was so special to sit down at the table, just the three of us, since we'd been a party of nine for two full weeks. I made my family's favorite meatloaf, with fresh potatoes I grew and harvested yesterday, boiled with fresh snipped chives from the herb bed and a light brown sauce. I tossed a big green salad with fresh tri-color lettuce, golden tomatoes, peas, and cucumbers from the garden, tossed with a homemade yogurt dressing. For dessert, vanilla ice cream.

We even ate with candlelight tonight. :)

Tonight I tried a new recipe for dinner. We had Campanelle with steak and spinach. It called for many italian herbs. I cut back on the amount of basil it called for because I can't handle too much basil. I thought it was pretty good and it was really different than what I am use to making for dinner. It was a very pretty dish to look at and serve.

Linda, your recipe sounds good. Would love to try it if you would pass along the recipe.

Tonight I had to carve up a large pork loin I bought. Got six roasts out of it. Made a herb-smothered pork roast with roasted potatoes and carrots. The meat was so tender it literally shredded. Yum!

Also, do I owe anyone recipes I promised? Please remind me...

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

Nicole here is the recipe. I hope you like it.

Campanelle with Steak and Spinach

Ingredients:

>> 16 oz. Private Selection Campanelle Pasta

>> 2-8 oz. Private Selection Angus New York Strip Steaks ( I used 1# sirloin steak thats what I had in the freezer)

>> 1/2 tsp. Private Selection Sea Salt

>> 1/2 tsp. Private Selection Fresh Ground Black Pepper

>> 1 tsp. Private Selection Italian Seasoning

>> 3/4 cup plus 3 Tbsp. Private Selection Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil

>> 4 Tbsp. Private Selection Balsamic Vinegar

>> 2 Tbsp. Private Selection French Dijon Mustard ( I used their vermont maple mustard thats what I had)

>> 1/3 cup fresh basil, julienned ( I used less probably only half of this because I don't like that much basil I find it too strong for my pallet)

>> 1/4 cup chives, chopped

>> 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped

Directions
1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.

2. Season steaks with salt, black pepper and Italian seasoning. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and cook steaks for about 6 minutes per side, or until desired doneness. Remove from skillet and set aside to let meat rest.

3. In a small bowl, combine vinegar, mustard, basil, chives, 3/4 cup of the olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.

4. In a large bowl, toss the pasta with the vinaigrette and the chopped spinach.

5. Thinly slice the steaks and add to the pasta. Adjust seasonings as needed.

6. Serve hot or at room temperature.

7. Refrigerate any leftovers.

I used less basil in mine because they called for alot and I find that much basil to be too strong for my pallet.Also I used a sirloin steak and cut mine up into stir fry size pieces and cooked it until it was not quite cooked through.I just tossed the cut pieces with the herbs and it turned out juicy. I did let it rest though.

If you want to see a picture of this recipe here is the link.

My family really liked this recipe so I will make it again.

Tonight we are having greenbeans that I canned with a cottage butt and new potatoes. Homemade cornbread with Hickory king corn that was fresh ground. I have not had this meal for quite awhile. All of your meals sounds supper duper yummy.

I have never made homemade tortillas. I would love try making those are they hard to make?

Your steak recipe sounds delish
I may try it without the pasta, trying to cut some carbs
& I will go for FULL basil

Linda, Can't wait to make your recipe - all the ingredients are on my list to try next week!

Tonight I am making my "Magic Elixer Chicken Soup". My girl has been quite ill this week. Been to the doctors twice. Put on an antibiotic. Then they took her off it again yesterday. Now they think it is some sort of virus. SOooo...making my baby some soup and we will have some yummy corn bread to eat with it. Last weekend I was in Florida. How time flies. Missing my in-laws and Mickey Mouse ;)

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

Made Linda's recipe last night. It's a keeper! Tonight I'm making a Danish dish with curry. It's a meatball made with ground pork served rice. Quite good.

Also baking my first batch of pumpkin bread today. :)

Yesterday I had Rice, Feta, spinach bake. I used the Feta I made from our goat milk. Its a healthy one dish meal. Also had homemade applesauce and pickled beets on the side. I am trying to have a meatless Monday every week. So this one fit the bill.
I am looking for more recipes to do this but so far only have homemade mac and cheese.
So if my internet keeps working will do some research for more recipes. Its been working off and on this morning.

Nicole glad you liked the recipe. I liked it pretty well I just could not handle all the basil it called for. To me basil is very strong tasting and I can only do small amounts.Pumpkin bread sounds so good right now. We have been having cooler nights and days just perfect for making bread.

Sharon Potato soup sounds good. I will have to look up her recipe to see how she makes it.
