I still need to post that potato soup recipe for Daizy, promise I will do that soon! In the meantime, check out this delicious Caesar salad recipe! http://www.onceuponachef.com/2010/08/caesar-salad-dressing.html
I use organic ingredients, but followed it to the letter except for the anchovy paste. I omitted that. It was one of the best dressings we have ever had!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Daizy, here's the soup recipe:

Quick Potato Soup

8 slices of bacon
2 cups peeled and boiled potatoes cut in chunks
1 1/4 cups milk
3 TBSP butter
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup sour cream
1 can drained corn or 1 cup frozen kernels
1 can cream of chicken soup (I use one carton of the organic version)

Fry bacon until no longer limp but not crisp. Take all but 2 TBSP of the bacon grease out of the pan, then add potatoes and onion. Cook until fork tender. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir often, cooking on low heat about 20 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Top with grated cheddar and chives, if desired.

Recipe is a favorite that I got from my dad. :)

Enjoy! Okay...help...need new ideas for ground beef.

Nicole

My internet has been going in and out all week, so I haven't been here much. They think they have it fixed now. Problem at the street with the cable. Anyway, I made this sauce: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/tzatziki-sauce/

It was delicious as a salad dressing over cucumbers and tomato. Will make it over homemade gyros. Anyone have a good pita bread recipe?

Hay ya'll,

We are having SOS over biscuits!!! It has been a long day so I'm making something really simple and, well, probably not the healthiest but it sure is rib-sticking!!!

Thanks Mz Nicole for the potatoe soup recipe....I will give it a try once I go get potatoes. It sounds yummy. And so does Mz Sharons Irish Pub Beef Stew. You post your recipe for all of us to enjoy!!

Hugs and prayers, Daizy (back to the stove)

Hello Mz Daizy :)

I found the recipe here:

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

I double the recipe except for the salt (3 tsp. instead) and black pepper (1 1/2 tsp.). It is so tasty with the butter and sherry :) Let me know if you try it :)

Sharon, yum! Reminds me of an Irish stew recipe I make sometimes. I got mine out of Seventeen magazine in the early eighties. I used to pull the recipe sections out and keep them each month. My mom saved them all for me. I'm so glad she did. Even as a kid, I loved to cook.

Tonight was quick and easy as it is spring break and I took my girl to a museum for the day. Last night I made those homemade chicken gyros and that sauce recipe on pita bread. It was yummy. I was looking forward to lighter fare and then it got cold and snowy again. Hmph. Not feeling like spring. May make chili this week!

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

Oh Nicole! I used to save the recipes from 17 also! My family consisted of my mom and dad, 2 brothers and myself. Everyone but my mom and I are super fussy so I used to invite my friends from school to experiment on with 17 magazine recipes :) How funny! You are the only other person that I know of that has used them :)

Sharon...I still have all the pages I tore out. Some of the recipes and themes are really quite useful! I was at a doctor's office waiting room one day and saw a current issue of Seventeen. Good grief how things change! I was turning red in the room...had to put it down. My daughter will not be reading it anytime soon! (I read it when I was eleven, but it was not that racy).

Tonight is a family request: Chicken fajitas. :)

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Last night I sautéed shrimp in butter, olive oil, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Addded some good black kalamata olives, and feta cheese. Served with a good crusty artisan bread to sop up the oil. Easy peasy, and yummy nummy!

I made my first carrot cake for Easter. Oh my it was good, but rich. Tonight we had chicken marsala a friend brought over for us, and mixed veggies with leftover cake. Worked a lot in the yard, so it was a good meal for the end of the day.

Nicole

I made a meatloaf loaf last night, so I made sure to bake some bread this morning for meatloaf sandwiches tonight. I'm serving them with fresh cabbage chopped in one inch-ish pieces and cooked in boiling water 5 minutes, then salted and buttered, and mashed potatoes.

Yesterday was DD's 12th birthday. Last night, she asked for her favorite meal: brown sugar sauced meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli. We had chocolate birthday cake for dessert. I would have made her anything she asked for. :)

My mom is still visiting for the week, and so I made my chicken fajitas with squash, onions, and red and green bell peppers.

Anyone have a good teriyaki chicken recipe?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

HAPPY, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, AUDREY!!! 'Sounds like a wonderful celebration dinner, Nicole! Lucky girl, she is! :)

Tonight we're having one of my favorites: garden fresh broccoli sandwiches... Steamed broccoli with melted meunster cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and um, er, Miracle Whip because I'm a sucker for it, a little hot sauce (or chopped hot chili peppers), salt and pepper in homemade pita pockets. My son is going to whine... I can just here him now... he's NOT a broccoli fan... nor is he a veggie fan... so maybe I'll make him some grilled ham and cheese with sliced apples and craisins on the side. :)

Tomorrow night? Stuffed zucchini! I cannot WAIT! And, of course, I'll have to find something less veggie for my young man. I swear, if he could get away with only meat, potatoes and strawberries, he'd be in Heaven! LOL!

Back home, there was an AWESOME Chinese restaurant that made the best Teriyaki chicken wings! Even though I know it's not what you're looking for - it's not actually Teriyaki - it's still very, very yummy. All you have to do is:

- Cut/separate your wings at the joints, discarding the pointy end.

- Place your wing pieces in a big bowl. Cover the entire bowl of chicken with brown sugar. Yep. Nothing but brown sugar. And a ton of it. Let marinate for a few hours, at least; overnight is best. Stir occasionally to ensure all of the chicken is completely coated.

- Set oven to 375 degrees. Place wings in a well-greased cast iron skillet (or a well-greased baking dish). Pour the chicken and brown sugar (which should now be pretty wet and syrupy) into the pan. Bake until the brown sugar gets very thick and dark, almost tar-like. I cannot for the life of me remember how long it takes, but I know it's more than an hour. The chicken will be done after an hour, of course, but the key is to let the sugar marinade get very thick and sticky. Let cool a bit before serving - sugar can get super hot!

- Serve with sticky white rice and steamed vegetables - broccoli, carrots, peppers, onions, etc. - and chunks of pineapple sprinkled with coconut.

Gosh, Nicole... I haven't made this in years! I may have to make it next weekend! I hope someone has a REAL teriyaki recipe for us, though, because mmmm-M! LOVE teriyaki!!!!

Hugs,

Nini

Nini, ALL of your meals sound delish, as usual! Like the recipe, too, and will try it. Would also love a traditional teriyaki chicken recipe if anyone has one. Since my momma was visiting, I made some of my best, most popular-with-the-family dishes. Two nights ago it was chicken fajitas made with squash, red peppers, and onions on flax seed wheat tortillas. Last night was my Curry Eggplant and Rice dish. My mom has never cooked with Curry, so she said it was a really big treat. I have done so much cooking the last week while she was here, and cleaning before that, today I am EXHAUSTED! Tonight is also the first night that after dinner I don't have to put a friend's chickens to bed after the dishes (was chicken sitting all week), so tonight is EASY! I am making Virginia Ham sandwiches with fresh lettuce from the garden, with tomatoes and onions, and on the side is fresh snap peas I grew with hummus. Washing it down with iced tea with lemon and mint!

What's on your table?
Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Made a new recipe that got a big thumbs up. Yesterday we had "baked crispy chicken nuggets with yogurt dill dipping sauce". Pretty easy and really good. On the side were green beans and fresh, sweet corn on the cob. So summer!

Tonight I made homemade sloppy joes. Always a pleaser. My favorite recipe is the one in the red and white check Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Tonight was pulled pork sandwiches my friend made and a green salad I grew with a lemon, oil, and balsamic vinegar dressing. Perfect combo...sweet and sour!

Tonight was whatever was in the garden, tossed with whole wheat pasta. DD had a friend over and they delighted in picking veggies to put in our dinner. Tossed everything with olive oil and garlic, and fresh herbs. So delicious!

Looking for new ideas for dinner. Post some new stuff!
