Sorry I missed a few days. First I was doing Girl Scout stuff for a couple of days, but then DD got really sick and I've been taking care of her. First they thought flu, or strep, but it turned out to be viral. Poor little girl! Much better now. My, how kids bounce back.

Anyway, tonight is Brown Sugar Sauced Meatloaf, homemade honey wheat bread, butternut squash casserole, and roasted brussel sprouts.

For dessert, homemade chocolate chip cookies!

Hugs! Missed y'all!

Our dinner last night at Girl Scout camp could have been gruel and we would have been happy as long as it was WARM gruel! It got in the 30s, so our Dutch oven dinner that was sort of enchiladas was fabulous!

The scouts were particularly happy with it because they made it themselves, and that always tastes better to kids, doesn't it?

It was layers of white corn tortillas with a mixture of shredded chicken, sour cream with powdered ranch dressing and green chilis mixed in plus some shredded cheese. On top of the chicken mixture went more cheese and green enchilada sauce. Do that three times then top with just tortilla, cheese and sauce.

It was so gooey and filling and warm - a big hit.

To keep the tortilla theme going and since we're a little tired of s'mores, we took a flour tortilla spread with a little butter, the add chocolate chips, mini marshmallows and some cinnamon, folded like a burrito and warmed in foil over the coals. That was pretty darn messy but pretty darn good.

A successful night!

We're really keeping the tortilla them going, since breakfast burritos are this morning's fare.

Finished off the last of the Honey Wheat Loaves I baked this weekend. Warmed and toasted with a little garlic. Had a last eggplant so I made the Eggplant Curry a last time, this time throwing chick peas in the mix. DH is sick of this meal now. Made a chicken broccoli casserole (same night we got baby chickens. Held a chicken, ate a chicken, lol). Last night had a Girl Scout Leader meeting so DH made hamburgers on the grill on top of the fluffiest, yummy organic hamburger buns. They were so good.

Need some ideas for quick, healthy meals on really busy nights! Anyone?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

We are just grilling some steak today and I will be serving it with something green and oven roasted fries.

I'm thinking Nicole :)

Put a pot roast with carrots and potatoes in the crock pot yesterday, but was interrupted by a friend of my daughter's walking her huge dog by herself the first time, and she showed up at my door. Poor little thing. Got my dinner in the pot too late, and it wasn't done, so that's what we're having tonight. :)

Nicole, I hope that your daughter is feeling better now. I bet that your pot roast will taste even better today :)

Tonight we are having:

~Meatloaf
~Roasted Banana Squash
~Green Beans
~Fried Apples

Nicole, I have a recipe for French Dip sandwiches that you cook in the crockpot. After several hours you take the meat out and shred, place on a toasted sandwich roll, melt provolone on top of that and then just use the au jus to dip the sandwich in. If you would like I can post it for you.

Hi Girls!

Where does the time go? Saturday I made a family favorite, Fall Pork Skillet Stew with cranberries, apples and sweet potatoes. Last night I made homemade flour tortillas and fajitas. The flour tortillas were so much easier to make with my new "Orgreenic" ceramic pan my mother in law bought me recently. Tonight, I needed fast and easy as I was hosting a GScout meeting. Dinner was really good though...whole wheat penne pasta tossed with grape tomatoes, lightly steamed asparagus, fresh garlic, chopped kale, sea salt, olive oil and parmesan cheese, all organic. Yum!

Sharon, please post that recipe...I'd love to have it.

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

You girls! Nicole I would love your Pork Skillet Stew recipe, pretty please? :)

Here it is:

French Dip

3 lb. Beef roast
˝ cup soy sauce
1 cube beef bouillon
1 bay leaf
3 whole peppercorns
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
French bread or rolls
Remove and discard all visible fat from roast. Place trimmed roast in a slow cooker.
In a medium bowl combine soy sauce, bouillon, bay leaf, peppercorns, rosemary, thyme, and garlic powder. Mix well and pour mixture over roast. Add water to almost cover roast. Cover slow cooker and cook on low heat for 10-12 hours or until meat is very tender.
Remove meat from broth; reserving broth. Shred meat with a fork and distribute on bread for sandwiches. Used reserved broth for dipping. Try placing slices of Provolone cheese on top of meat on sandwiches and broil until melted. Then top with bread. And serve with a tossed salad and pepperoncinis.

Can't wait to try the crock pot recipe.

Well the stew recipe is a Keeper!
I found it here:

http://www.food.com/recipe/irish-pub-beef-stew-11919

The flavor of the butter (which the meat and veggies are browned in) and the sherry gives it a wonderful flavor.

Things I did different: I only used 2 onions. I only browned the beef and sauteed the onions in the butter. I also cooked mine in the crockpot.

Had company for dinner Sunday, made a trough of lasagna which lasted several days. ;)

So...what's on your Thanksgiving dinner menu for tomorrow? We will be having turkey, LadyBird Johnson's cornbread dressing, organic cranberry sauce, carrot souffle, green bean casserole, and rolls. Pumpkin pie for dessert, of course!

Tonight will be something easy...maybe chili.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING FARMSISTERS!

Sorry farmsisters, forgot to change the date. We've been eating leftovers and then last night had pizza ;)

Tonight I'm using the last of the turkey, thank the Lord, will make ham for Christmas now. Anyway, made a turkey pot pie with lots of tarragon and a butter crust.

What's on your table this week?

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

Hey Nicole!

We finally used up the last of the turkey and such the same night :)

Tonight we are having leftovers from last night.

Judy's recipe for Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joe's (now I know that Nini would say not a Philly Cheese Steak!)

http://www.dailyyarnsnmore.com/mid_life_bliss/2013/12/december-1st.html

We are not big steak sauce fans but I found a recipe to make my own and used it:

http://theprudenthomemaker.com/index.php/steak-sauce

I served this on homemade buns with a tossed salad, it was really good!
