Tonight I made oil' fashioned, spaghetti and meatballs. I made home made sauce with fresh garlic, onions, and herbs I dried myself. I also simmered yellow and red cherry tomatoes in the sauce. Oh it was soooo good!

Farmgirl hugs,

Last night we had company, so I made a stew with a side of cumin roasted brussel sprouts. Tonight I raided the garden - making a stir fry over rice with all the yummy pickings!

Still have a loaf and a half of fresh pumpkin bread I made last night, too.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Connie, that sounds (and looks) delish! I made canned spiced pears tonight, so dinner was a quick and easy kale and white bean stuffed ravioli, tossed with garlic, cheese, fresh yellow baby tomatoes I picked, and peas.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Sara, I can smell the aroma. Yum!

Tonight, I'm making Pan Seared Fish Tacos with Creamy Cilantro Cucumber Dressing. There will be choices of toppings like red cabbage, okra/tomato relish, cheese, etc...

I like making things with topping choices because it makes the meat go further. I never know how many people I'm feeding. It's always at least 6 but could be 10 depending on what workers I have and who comes to visit.

Used up the last of the garden goodies last night. Made the last squash casserole of the season. Used the last of some brusell sprouts too, making roasted ones.

Now it's getting cooler, so I think I will be making more "comfort food" and less salads. Looking for some new recipes...

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Homemade portabella mushroom & roasted red peppers (from a jar)pizza. Crust made with Bisquick Gluten Free Mix with my own dried mix-greens. Haven't tried blending the greens to a powder before, but figure it should work if added to the dry Bisquick.

Sauce from a jar, plenty of pkg. grated cheese with added herbs should make for a quick and tasty pizza.

Update: Made the pizza using 4 cups of dried baby spinach (had forgotten about the spinach) that yielded 1/2 cup after blending. Taste was good but texture was off. Next time I will use 2 cups of dried greens = 1/4 cup after blending.

Last night we had sandwiches, as we my dd got out of school early so we treated ourselves to lunch out.

Tonight though, is a different story. We were supposed to hostess a camp out at our house, but it is stormy! Plans are rescheduled, so tonight we are having beef stew in the crock pot with home grown carrots, potatoes, kale, tomatoes, and farm corn. Chocolate brownies for dessert. Spending the day sewing and watching scary movies with DD!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Chicken tamales from Kelly's Produce Stand, Wolf Brand Chili, cranberry beans, and avocado. If it isn't homemade than it got to be Wolf Brand.

Sara, YUM! Local homemade tamales are sooooo gooood. I've tried making them myself and while I did a fair job, I'd much rather purchase from local women that have been making them for years with family recipes.

Tonight we'll be having two kinds of cornbread...one sweet and one with jalapenos, and a pot of black eyed peas with beef sausage.

Pumpkin Chili is so good! I can't wait to make that!

We're having Chicken Tortilla Soup in the crock pot with guacamole on the side. I had nothing planned today, so I just threw it together.

I'm sure that Sharon will have the best recipe ever; but, about 5 yrs ago, I started to freeze good sweet winter squash, baked and pureed in 2 cup bags. I started to add a bag to each batch of chili I made, and it is SOO good. It adds a natural sweetness, and thickens the chili nicely. Didn't do any last year, and boy do I miss it! I've seen some recipes where the pumpkin is chunked, but I just love the texture that the pureed squash lends to the chili. Try it! You'll like it! (remember that commercial?)

Lisa :)

Nicole,

Here is a link to the recipe I used:

http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/pumpkin-chili#.UHma0yMaoI0.pinterest

This was my first time making it and got rave reviews for it :) The flavors are wonderful.

What I did different:

~I found that I needed to add more beans so I added 3 cans of Black Beans
~I used mild chili beans and added hot sauce instead of using the hot chili beans
~I also used Baking Spice instead of Pumpkin Pie Spice
~I used Pumpkin Puree from my freezer (thawed)

Here is my Baking Spice recipe:

Baking Spice

6 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon ground allspice
1 Tablespoon dried orange peel
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1)Combine all ingredients together. I have a coffee grinder just for spices so this is what I used.
2)Store in an airtight container.
3)Use this mix in recipes that call for the ingredients above.
4)If a recipe calls for the above spices, add up all of the measurements and use the same amount in your recipe.

Oh my...the pumpkin chili was fabulous! I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but used it more as a guide. Instead I made my chili recipe but put in pumpkin puree, and your spice recommendations, Sharon. I put it in the crock pot. Oh it was yummy! Having more for lunch today!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Glad you liked it Nicole. I canned my own chili sauce yesterday so I plan on using that next time.

The chicken that we had was unbelievable! Before even roasting it it smelled good. Now I am spoiled and only want to purchase this chicken :)

I'm not sure what to have tonight, I am thinking of Teriyaki Chicken Burgers as I have homemade buns already made.

I made black bean burgers tonight. I mixed the beans with an egg (local), oats, garlic, pesto (local), red curry paste and cayenne.I made the pesto from some basil and parsley I got at the farmer's market this morning (last day of the season). I also got the eggs and picked up my order of grass-fed, organic pork steaks. The burgers are crispy on the outside and creamy inside. They can't be re-warmed in a microwave or they get too soggy, so I have to reheat them in the stove. I'll freeze some for later. I had a bowl of chili at my parents' house. When mom makes chili, you have to eat it.
