We are in the middle of an ice storm AND the Colts Broncos game is on. We had a bakeover for lunch and now that the game is on, we have chili, kraut dogs and homemade pizza...we will be grazing all evening

I am Puerto Rican and we are still celebrating the Christmas season with what we call Octavitas, celebrating the Three Kings and the birth of baby Jesus. So for dinner tonight we are having this delicious Clementine Almond Cake. http://www.thegoodlifegirl.com/2015/01/celebrating-octavitas-with-clementine.html

Maria, I enjoyed hearing about your King's Day tradition and seeing the beautiful Almond cake. Here in the South, we celebrate January 6 with a King's Cake which is a sweet bread with a cinnamon filling, make into a ring and decorated with green, purple and gold. There is a tiny little baby charm hidden in the bread and whomever gets the charm hosts the next Kings Party. These go on until the big Mardi Gras celebration the day before Lent begins.

Maria, that is positively beautiful! A real work of art!

DH is under the weather, so I think I will make my "Magic Exilir Chicken Soup". And feeling the need for some "get back to the roots, farmgirl style" activity, so I will bake homemade bread today! I'm thinking I will put some fresh snipped herbs in it. I have a few plants indoors for that.

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Instead of chicken soup, trying a new sweet potato soup recipe, and am making MJ's breadsticks from the recipe issue made with MJ's baking mix. Yum!

For lunch I warmed up some Lentil soup and made home baked blueberry muffins with frozen blueberries we picked last summer. Taste of summer on a cold day!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

We treat ourselves - rarely due to the caloric heft of this dish - every once in a while to an "elevated" version of pot pie, and tonight is the night.

Make whatever pot pie filling you like - our true favorite is beef with Guinness as the added liquid.

The treat part comes with the "twist" on the crust. Roll out your pie crust to twice as thin as you normally would, and sprinkle cheese on one half of the crust, then fold the un-cheesed side over to tuck the cheese in between two layers of crust. Place it on top of your filling, cut a few vents, brush with an egg wash and bake as usual.

Here's why we only do this particular dish every once in a while: for the beef and Guinness pot pie filling, we use Stilton cheese in between the layers of crust. Decadent to say the least! And since there isn't a pot big enough to make enough of this delicious crust, we make a double batch and cook one of the crusts on a cookie sheet, cut it up and use it like crackers.

Hooray for recipes from the William Sonoma catalog, which is where I found this one.

A nice crispy salad goes well with this, and makes us feel like perhaps some of the saturated fat is being carried along on the lettuce and not being directly deposited on our thighs : )

Oh my , Cindy, this pie sounds incredible! That crust must just be the best ever with the cheese. I bet the cheese makes it even flakier than usual too. Yes, Williams Sonoma has great recipe ideas in their magazines.

Maria, your cake is beautiful. It looks so yummy.

Cindy, I have never used Stilton cheese. I will look for it and try your crust recipe.

I've posted before that Monday nights are always Beans and Rice night for us. Although I was born in Texas, I grew up in Louisiana and am part Cajun. It's just always been a family tradition. It has its roots in that Monday was laundry day and the beans could cook in the pot all day long while the lady of the house was busy with laundry.

Of course, the traditional bean of Cajuns is the red bean. I like to put variety in our traditions. So, every Monday I cook a different bean. Tonight is Cuban Black Beans with a Cilantro Rice. It's already in the crock pot and the house smells yummy.

Cindy,
That sounds great! I'm not a big Blue Cheese fan so I may just have to go with a milder Gorgonzola :)

Catherine,
That is a neat tradition! This former New England gal has never had Beans and Rice. Yesterday was our 18th Wedding Anniversary but we are celebrating today :)

On the menu:

~Prime Rib (oh it smells so wonderful!!!)
~Shannon's Stuffed Potato Casserole (found on the Farmgirl Virtual potluck thread)
~Oven Roasted Asparagus
~Homemade Sour Cherry Pie

Sharon Happy 18th Wedding Anniversary

Catherine 40 some years ago a neighbor, who grew up along the coast, introduced me to Trappey's Field Peas with rice. I still eat it and keep cans of the peas in my pantry.

Today is not a good day for me so my sister bought over a baked potato and roast beef with dried mushroom gravy. It sure was good.

Enjoy your anniversary dinner, Sharon and Michael! I thought of you yesterday when we stopped in the antique mall in Dolores, after you were talking about what you guys do with your $20.00!
Happy Anniversary!

Happy anniversary, Sharon! Have a wonderful romantic evening.

Sara, first, I hope your day goes better than when you posted. Second, I love Trappeys (for those that don't know, it's pronounced trap-ay, long a sound at the end) You oughta try their okra and tomatoes. It's pretty darn near as good as homemade.

CJ, the tuna sounds yummy. Pan seared things are tasty because of that crispness it gets on the outside.

Hi Gals, We're having one of my favorite meals tonight: Bakes beans, hot dogs and corn bread. Its one of my favorites because its yummy AND it reminds me of one of my favorite farmgirls, Laura Ingals Wilder. Whenever I make this (minus the hotdogs) I always feel like I'm right there in Little House on the Prairie with Ma and the girls. I know I'm getting a little sappy, but those books played a HUGE part in my farmgirl development!

Good Eating!

Thank you for the anniversary wishes girls
It was a great day and a delicious meal and dessert.

Dena, your meal sounds so good and very comforting. I never read the Little House books as a child but read them every year. I think that they are wonderful and that everyone should read them and realize how blessed we really are and how our hardships don't compare.

Tonight we had: Roasted Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Peas and Cranberry Sauce.

Tomorrow my Mom plans on making us a Meat Pie :)

Sharon, Hope you had a great anniversary.

Our meals will be determined by how things go with this big blizzard. Tonight I am making a one-pot stew using boneless pork. it's a favorite with caramelized onions, apples, sweet potatoes and spicy mustard. It's really good.

If we don't lose power, I will be making some nice, warm, homestyle meals. We shall see...

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole
