We (hubby and me) just did our own thing tonight with "grazing". We went to the mountains today and enjoyed a nice lunch at one of our favorite cafes on the way. Getting home too late to get "organized" for supper.

Your day sounded wonderful! In an effort to find new ways to use our bumper crop of zucchini, I tried a new recipe, Tiella Zucchini Potato Casserole! I replaced potatoes with quinoa! It was delicious! Tomorrow we're having DH's sister & bil for lunch so tonight I made hummus for munchies and citrus cake that I'll serve with whipped cream & blueberries for dessert! DH BBQ'd salmon for my salmon pasta salad! I'm also going to try another new recipe, zucchini parmesan bread! Hoping for lots of left overs so no cooking for a couple days!

Love how everyone is working meals around their gardens and fresh veggies! Last night I made a really good dinner: I took organic chicken breast and sliced it into strips. I sauteed it in a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and then juice of one lemon. When it was browned, I poured in 1/2 cup of blush wine, like a white zinfandel. I threw in some pole beans from the garden and fresh picked kale, covered and let it simmer down. It was delicious! On the side, I made a cucumber, grape tomato salad tossed with a homemade yogurt dill/chive dressing, and some baked beans with maple syrup. For dessert, I threw together a blueberry, raspberry, blackberry cobbler with a sidecar of ice cream. Maybe it's why I feel like a slug today, lol.

Tonight we just had a quinoa/black bean veggie burger with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles and some sweet potato oven fries. Still tasty, but not as heavy as yesterday.

CJ I wish we could do a pot luck too! Wouldn't that be great fun??

Hugs,
Nicole

Today dd and I went to a county fair with friends, grabbed ice cream at our favorite farm ice cream stand, and then walked one of the dogs at the local trail. So glad I put something in the crock pot. Tonight I made Slow Cook Pepper Steak. I served it over rice but it is also good on noodles. Got the recipe years ago. Here's the link if you are interested: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/slow-cooked-pepper-steak.

Smells so good when it is cooking. I added everything at once (except the corn starch) and cooked it on high a few hours. Still came out well.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Main meal at noon time today,
Meatloaf made from our freshly butchered, homegrown beef
Green beans from my garden
Baked potato.

Last night we had burger patties from that beef, fresh corn-on-the-cob and leafy green spinach/kale salad with lots of veggies!

The burger patties were our first taste of this beef we just put in the freezer . . . YUMMMMM!

Yesterday, we went to the county fair in Rhinebeck, New York. It's huge. Afterwards, we always stop at this little pizza shop for pizza right around the corner from the fairgrounds, so last night was old fashioned, hand made, pizzeria pizza! Don't you love a good pizza?

Tonight it is warm and we snuck away to the beach for a few hours, our last "hurrah" for summer before school starts. I'm worn out! So tonight was a quick but yummy dinner: I made the second package of white bean and kale ravioli I bought, but tossed it with fresh herbs, chives, yellow tomatoes, garlic and kale from the garden. It turned out good!

Looking forward now to fall and some good fall cooking!

What's on your table?
Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Tonight, I cooked pan seared salmon in butter and garlic with cajun seasonings. Topped it with sauteed red onions and mushrooms. Served with steamed corn on the cob with smushy garlic.

Smushy garlic.....I steam the whole garlic clove, peel and all, with the corn. It turns soft. Then instead of smearing butter on the corn, I smear the soft, smushy garlic on the corn. OMG delicious!

I made a garden dinner last night using a head of cabbage cooked with butter and rosemary. I tossed in some leftover spring onions and green pepper from the garden. I sliced up a tofurkey kielbasa and threw that in too. I added just a bit of lemon juice to cut the bitterness. When it was out of the pan, I sliced up some garden radishes and chopped some fresh parsley and put them on top. I seasoned with caraway seeds, salt and white pepper and served it over brown rice. It was so good that my picky DH even liked it.

Marie..ooh...looks and sounds delish! I love this time of year when dinner depends on what is in the garden. Last night, I was so tired from going through dd's closet for school, and cleaning house, and gardening, and weed-wacking, and ironing...I ended up making sandwiches for dinner. They were delish! I used big, juicy, sun-warmed tomatoes in big slices, and red onion (both from the garden), with organic bread and mayo and swiss cheese and a little ham...heavenly but simple. Fresh peaches for dessert.

Now tonight I am doing the big dinner thing. I am making meatloaf, with squash casserole and garden green beans and tomatoes cooked with some basil. Can't wait!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Yum! My mouth is watering...Sharon, shepherd's pie is one of my family's favorites! I make mine with beef, too, though I will eat it with lamb in a restaurant (prefer beef).

Sunday was so good...I grew some one pound Purple Cherokee tomatoes. We sliced them, grilled organic beef burgers on the grill, and garnished the burgers with the works, including some home grown, home canned dill pickles! Nothing better than home made and home grown!

Last night, I made Texas Rice and Beans, as per dd's request for last day of summer.

Tonight I will make some chicken fajitas using peppers, squash and carrots from the garden. I am making homemade tortillas, too.

It's hot again so I don't want to turn on the oven.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Last night I made Danish food...Boller I Karri. Meatballs in curry sauce. Don't know why, but my meatballs fell apart! :(. It was still tasty and I made a big garden salad to go with it. I'm going to miss the veggies from the garden when the season changes!

Nicole

Nicole, Danish food, never had it but it sounds tasty. Are you of Danish heritage or just interested in all styles of cooking?

Today I am having stuffed little green bell peppers with Jenny-0 turkey balls with spa. sauce. Roasted Brussels spouts; 3 colored finger potatoes that were marked down to 99 cents a pkg; organic carrots.

Roasted vegetables with green tomatoes. My first time roasting green tomatoes; reminded me of fried green tomatoes and I do like fried green tomatoes.

My sister dropped off breaded chicken with her homemade tomato sauce - very good with vegetables.

I need to stop by here on a regular basis! Wow, the fantastic dinners happening across the states are inspirational! So many delicious combinations from garden harvests . The recent thread about Shepherd's Pie caught my eye as it is a dish I have always loved but seldom make for some odd reason. My mom used to make it from Sunday's left over roast beef(which she ground up to be like hamburger meat along with the left over gravy, carrots and onions) and roasted potatoes which she mashed up and mixed with an egg to make a potato topping. It was absolutely delicious the second meal ,and a great way to feed a big family for a second meal that week!
