I think that we all need to book flights to PA for Nini's

Tonight we aren't having anything special,

~Sloppy Joes on Homemade Rolls
~Tossed Salad

It is just Michael, my Mom and myself so we will be lucky if we stay up past 11:00 :)

I'm with you Sharon! Nini look out, and pull out the sleeper sofas!
Tonight, organic chicken Asian style, and a napa, red cabbage, edamame, carrot and avocado salad with chili lime cilantro dressing.
Tomorrow, spicy black eyed peas in the crock pot, collards, and glazed ham. And sauerkraut for me. Hubs hates it.
After that, a menu of treadmill, sauna, lemon water repeat!

I agree! Nini, so glad we got to talk today. Great way to end the year.

Tonight is Chinese Take Out, and champagne#128540;!
Good movies and watching the ball drop on tv.

Tomorrow is Lucky Bean soup with sausage and lots of black eyed peas!

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

I'm not sure what those numbers were on my last post lol.

Ugh. Live Chinese but hate the msg and sodium. Only eat it at the holidays.

My Lucky Bean soup is simmering and smells delish. I'm thinking corn bread will complete the meal.

Happy New Year!

Sara - I have never heard of Moro beans... can you tell us a little more about them? Is there another bean they are similar to or are they in a class of their own?

Shannon, I order heirloom beans from Rancho Gordo.

http://www.ranchogordo.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=RG&Category_Code=DHAHB4

I copied this description off their web site.

...The beans stay whole and offer their rich, tasty bean broth with no trouble. The skin is thin yet the bean is dense without being starchy. Almost fudge like. We thought it might be more like a black bean, but it isn't. Once cooked, it's in the vague and versatile "kidney" family.

Suggested uses: in salads, on their own, baked or most anyway you like...

The bean is smaller than kidney beans - a little smaller than pintos - dark in color but not black.

My favorite bean I order is Royal Corona - large white Italian runner bean grown in Poland.

Sara,

Very cool., interesting.

We had a whole wheat pasta with butternut squash sauce last night with a green salad.

Tonight is pork chops with a fire roasted tomato mushroom sauce, Mac and cheese, and perfect peas.

Pork chops simmered with spiced pears, warm German Potato Salad, mixed veggies, and maybe a corn on the cob each.

Oh my gosh, girls - everything sounds so good! I second that we all head to Shannon's after my place. I actually think we should do rounds to ALL of our houses! ;)

Monday we had Reuben casserole - hot bubbly, tangy and sweet! Mmmm - M!

Tuesday we had cheeseburgers with tomato, onion and homemade pickles, with oven fries on the side. Meh... The guys love it... It was good, but like it better in the summer! ;)

Wednesday we had pizza pasta. (Pasta layered with sauce, spinach, mozzarella and pepperoni, baked til bubbly and brown - SO good!)

Tonight we had homemade meatball hoagies with homemade sauce from the garden, provolone and shredded Romano cheese on garlic-toasted Kaiser rolls. Mmmmm... My goodness, did THAT hit the spot!

Tomorrow we'll be having chicken rolled with garlic stuffing and provolone and broccoli with lemon.

Saturday it's just going to be me and my hubby, so we'll be having something that our son doesn't like - homemade chili with cheese and sour cream! Can't WAIT!

Girls - what can I make with Quinoa?

Hugs -

Nini

Last night, I made homemade pizza with my girl. It was fabulous! I made a whole wheat crust, and this time tried a sauce with a base of tomato paste as opposed to sauce. Used home dried oregano, basil, and fresh garlic. Topped with cheese, olive oil, yellow bell pepper, and these little, rich-tasting tomatoes my dh found at Trader Joe's. It was SOOOOOO good! Using the paste as opposed to sauce made the taste so rich and good, plus did not make the crust soggy. Baked it on a stone. Had no leftovers.

Tonight I am making Chicken Cacciatore. I am using a fave recipe from an old cookbook. If you all see a copy of "Recipes from the Bridges Of Madison County" cookbook on Amazon or at a flea market, you should snap it UP! That's been the best little cookbook. Every recipe is delicious. It is made by the caterers on set of the movie "Bridges of Madison County", from the early 90's. Even the pictures, pencil drawings are so quaint. I love it.

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Oh, with our cacciatore we are having rice, and corn on the cob, by popular demand.

I pulled out some chicken breasts out of the freezer for tonight's dinner. Not sure how I will prepare them just as yet, maybe Mexican style with cumin spice? I have a head of cauliflower I think I will use for a cheesy cauliflower bake and serve with a green salad. I also have some pumpernickel rye bread dough rising in the bread machine. Chocolate something for dessert!

I also have a ham bone leftover from Christmas in my fridge, think I will put it in the crock pot with some water overnight to make some stock for bean soup for tomorrow.

Warm mustard potato salad, sausage link, and vaquero dried beans cooked with dried collard greens.

Vaquero beans are kin to Anasazi beans. Anasazi beans are sometimes called Jacob's Cattle.

one pot paprika chicken thighs is on the menu tonight... and maybe some GF fresh baked bread. We found a really yummy recipe last night, but I think I want to try a new one tonight. With the chicken thighs are potatoes, baby carrots, and mushrooms. YUM!
