Made King Ranch casserole with homemade tortillas. Lot of work, but it was good. Need something easier the next few nights...

Reheating last nights leftovers of pork cutlet, dressing w/cranberry sauce, and broccoli. Not many dishes to clean up there.

Marie, you crack me up :)

Nicole, I know what you mean about easy meals.

Betty, that sounds good. I never thought to have cranberry sauce with pork, but it sounds good to me :)

Tonight is:

~Homemade Pizza with oven roasted sauce, bacon, fresh tomatoes and avocado (we put this on the last 10 minutes of baking)
~Salad

Had to be somewhere tonight so I made a big pot roast in the crock pot with red potatoes and herbs from the garden. I am still thinking about Connie's fried cabbage. Must try - I've always said I think Heaven must be a kitchen full of fried food.

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

Made a pot roast tonight too. New potatoes and organic carrots and served it with whole grain french bread with butter. Finally having cool days where this kind of food sounds good again. I wanted something sweet tonight but was making soap so will maybe try for that tomorrow.

Picked up quite a few Jonathan apples and want to make something with them like a pie or crisp not sure yet.I ate one this evening and it was a really good apple so it should make a good desert.

Today I am making soup beans with spiral ham pieces and carrots in it. Hickory King corn bread and homemade applesauce to go with it.I love eating my cornbread with homemade blackberry jelly on it.Its one of my most favorite ways to eat cornbread.
I am in the fall mood for cooking. Its so cloudy and grey here today. They are calling for rain but have only had sprinkles. We are very dry and could use some rain. It just seemed like a good day for bean soup.

Sunday night we had a mexican dish you can eat wrapped in soft tortillas or with corn chips. We had blue cornchips with ours.

Anyway its a recipe you put cut up roasted chicken, fire roasted tomatoes, frozen corn, brown rice, verde sauce and mexican cheese and red beans. Its baked for 25 min. and its super duper good. Its one of my favorite recipes.Its a wee bit spicy from the fire roasted tomatoes that I buy from Kroger but by most people standards its mild.This dish makes alot and I think eating it with blue cornchips is a really good combo.

It went down to 42 degrees last night. Bring on the fall meals I am ready.

Linda, I'm with you... want some good fall meals. The last couple of days I made egglplant curry with rice and sausage in it. It's got peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, and onions. Scrumptious! Also made fajitas. Tonight I am making a big ol' pot of chili with cornbread and maple syrup, and for dessert I've got two more loaves of pumpkin bread baking.

Tomorrow I want to bake a couple loaves of honey wheat bread.

What's cooking at your house?

By the way..thanks for the idea, need to make some potato soup this week! Yum!

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

I wish I could eat eggplant but I'm terribly allergic to it. Your recipe sounds so good.
Tonight its meatless Monday so I think I will be making Pioneer Womans recipe for broccoli cheese soup. Its pretty easy to make and taste wonderful.Its reminds me of Panera bread's soup but I won't have to drive over an hour to get it.

Anyone have some good fall meals please post them I am desperate for some new recipes.

All of these recipes sound so good

Nicole, my husband claims that eggplant was in the Garden of Eden and caused the Fall. I personally love it and sure enjoy a good Ratatouille.

Linda, I will have to check out PW's Broccoli Cheese Soup. Our Broccoli is growing well (my first time, yay!) Ree's Corn Chowder recipes is really good too.

Tonight was:

~Stuffed Cabbage Rolls (Golumpkis)
~Mashed Potatoes
~Corn

Nectarine

Ugh. Finally got DD to feeling better. Now I have the WORST head cold ever. I'm never, ever sick much, not like I used to (before organic food) but boy! When I get it I get it bad. SO...tonight was my "Magic Elixer Chicken Soup" again.

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

Nicole you poor thing. I am so sorry you are sick. I hope your magic soup helps you feel better. Praying for a speedy recovery and get some rest.

Tonight had BBQ pulled beef sandwiches made in the crockpot.Also opened the canned coleslaw I made earlier this year for the first time.It turned out pretty good and made a nice side to the BBQ.

Kristina how do you you make butter cabbage and beans? Never heard of that before it sounds good.

Nicole, I hope that you will be feeling better soon!!!

Linda, your dinner sounds good. How was the canned coleslaw? I have been thinking about making some when my cabbage is ready :)

Tonight is:

~Salmon and Chive Cakes w/homemade tartar sauce
~Broccoli from the garden ( I am so excited, this is my first time growing broccoli)
~Homemade Mac & Cheese

Actually I just got a call and it's leftovers tonight, we need to go out of town today. Uggh. Not looking forward to that.

Sharon the canned coleslaw was pretty darn good. I think I will be making that again next year. This was the first time doing it.I tried it warm and then chilled it and it was better cold.Your salmon and chive cakes sound wonderful. Is it similar to regular salmon cakes?

Here is the link where I got the recipe for the canned coleslaw.

http://chickensintheroad.com/farm-bell-recipes/canned-coleslaw/

She goes into great detail how to make it. I made mine with less sugar than it called for. She does a great job showing each step.

My dinner tonight is Pizza which I have not had in a long time. I also made a peach cobbler in the solar oven today and it turned out wonderful. I can't wait to eat them both. I know its a strange combo but I can't wait to eat.

Hey Linda,

That is exactly where I saw the recipe! Thanks for letting me know. :)

Here is the recipe for the Salmon Cakes, it calls for canned but I had leftover grilled salmon. The taste just has a bit more chive/onion to it. I forgot there is lemon in it too. I made up a bunch and flash froze them on a cookie sheet. Once frozen I individually wrapped them in foil and place them in a ziploc bag. I just take them out, unwrap and place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes (roughly) A great time saver!

Lemon & Chives Salmon Cakes

1 (15 oz.) can red salmon, drained (for this I just grilled some salmon and then went through and de-boned it and used 15 oz.)
3/4-cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, minced
1 Tbsp. chives (or 2 tsp. freeze dried)
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
Dash of Tabasco
1/2-cup fine bread crumbs (dried)

Preheat oven to 250. Mix first ten ingredients until well blended. Shape into 8 (2 1/2-inch) rounds. Put dry crumbs on a plate and coat each cake thoroughly with crumbs. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add half salmon cakes and cook for 5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Transfer to an ovenproof platter and keep warm while cooking the remaining salmon cakes. Serves 4. (This can easily be doubled)

I make a tartar sauce with zucchini relish (from our garden), mayonnaise, dill, and a little bit of Dijon mustard and lemon juice.

Ugh. Almost thought I had the flu. Am better now, cleaned house yesterday and am just dealing with the remnants of congestion. Sorry, that may be Too Much Info. Anyhoo, family would gag if we ate anymore Chicken Soup, be it "magic" or not...

Was still not feeling up to par on Thursday, so I picked up a big pizza from our local store. Not organic, I know, but still very good and handmade. With the discount special, you get a trunk-size pizza that won't fit through the door for $12! Friday was pizza. Last night, we had so much left, but I made a big, yummy salad to go with it. I made a delicious dressing and think I finally got it just right: 3TBSP plain yogurt, 3 TBSP olive oil, 1/2 tsp. dried basil, 1/2 tsp. dried oregano, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp sugar. Mix it up in a jar.

Tonight is homemade meatloaf, roasted sweet potatoes, and the rest of the big huge salad I made. Used the last of the tomatoes and carrots from the garden. :) Love this post...everyone's meals sound so good!

Hugs!
Nicole

Any fish fanciers out there? We're making baked cod that's crusted with a mixture of panko or bread crumbs, some mayo, salt, pepper and as much horseradish as you want. It turns out really nice with a little crunch from the topping and the horseradish flavor soaked in to the fish.

There was beautiful broccoli and fresh mixed salad greens at the farmers market, so that's what will be with the fish.

Since this whole thing is pretty much too healthy, I think something decadent may be in the works for dessert : )
