Shannon, you always have such yummy and well-thought-out dinners.

Today it's brunch at sister Bobbie's ~~ eggs, fried garlic baloney, and home fries. We both watch bad fats so a slice or two of fried baloney is a real treat for us.

Tonight was yummy! We have had to cancel our Girl Scouts several times due to weather...(OMG, do NOT get me started)...so tonight we said we were going to have our troop meeting even if we had to sled to it. We celebrated Chinese New Year. One of the moms made Homemade Chinese Fried Rice, it was scrumptious. We had all sorts of chinese dishes, and then the girls all learned and made homemade dumplings! They were heavenly!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Boy, I've not been here for a while. Last night we had curried ground beef (our own homegrown beef) with veggies and red rice. I get to take the leftovers for my lunch tomorrow on my drive to Phoenix.

Tonight it's pork chops from our friend who raises her own hogs . . not sure what will go with. Didn't plan ahead for corned beef and cabbage and I doubt I'll ever do store bought again. I've use Mary Janes recipe for corned beef and it is YUMMY!!!!

I'm sorry, farmgirls. I haven't been on here lately because I just wasn't feeling well. Long story...

Anyway, I have had some interesting dinners here and there last week or so. Last Saturday I went to an "International Pot Luck". Everyone had to be from somewhere else (I got to go because a. the host is my best friend and b. I'm married to a Dane so it counts, lol. I had food from New Zealand, Jamaica, Australia, and England. I made Danish meatballs in curry sauce and Danish Cream Puffs. Last night we went out for my birthday, so I didn't cook. I had Fall Chicken Pot Pie and Lava cake with ice cream (yum). Tonight I am making chili because it is cold tonight, and for dessert, I made a cheesecake pie.

What's on your table?
Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole, the international potluck dinner sounds like a lot of fun with a lot of really good food.

I worked inside & out today so supper was sardines, pork n/ beans, cheddar cheese & crackers, with a glass of Merlot. Yes, I drink red wine with sardines. I guess it's an acquired taste.

I have a fun one. Hubs and I go to an Oktoberfest in Cinci in August. It is hosted at a VERY authentic venue called Germania Park. They have the most authentic German food, and the entertainment is top notch.
Well, hubs and I have had a very trying week, lots of surprise home repairs (I'll spare the details). I send him a msg on Weds "Wouldn't it be nice to be at Germania with a mett,(with curry mustard) on a hard roll, a cold Warsteiner and a set or 2 of Autobahn (the entertainer we love)?" His response "Hell Yea"
Soo I went to Kroger, bought the best metts I could find, some hard ciabatta rolls, and a 6 pack of dark Warsteiner, AND, I found a You Tube video of Autobahn that I will play on our TV at the appropriate time tonight.
Oktoberfest in March???? Heck yea!
I'll let you know how he likes it!

Sara! YOu would be my first invite! I would love to show a TX gal a proper German Cinci Oktoberfest!
But onto the dinner. I made a curry mustard out of spicy kombucha mustard (that I fermented and made), some yellow mustard, curry powder, and local honey (courtesy of Linda, aka wooliespinner, and her son Michael).
I told hubs he was not allowed in the living room or kitchen for about an hour. I took our Germania ceramic beer stein (pic below, and signed by the logo designer; here's a pic) stuck it in the freezer with 2 Warsteiners, then went to work.. I added the grill insert to our Harman wood burning stove, added the metts, and put the rolls on top to warm/toast.
After they were done, I plated everything, and blindfolded hubs, brought him into the living room, handed him the plate and the stein, and cued the You Tube video.
He was SOOO surprised.. I received many hugs and kisses, and he has declared that I need to bottle the mustard, and retire. HAHA.
It was a fun thing to do in the midst of laboring home repairs, and OH weather that can't decide whether to be 70 and sunny, or 35 and spitting ice.

Lisa, first things first ~ I love that stein. Next I want that spicy kombucha mustard recipe ~~ and last but not least girl you sure do know how to throw a party for two.

I tried making mustard several years back but it didn't turn out so good. Should have kept trying till I got it right but I didn't. The mustard seeds I had left went into pickling.

Today I am making my version of a spring soup. A lot of chicken broth (can broth)flavored with parsley, thyme, and rosemary fresh from my gardens and a dash of cayenne. A few thin sliced carrots, onions, garlic, with dried potatoes, parsnips, zucchini, mushrooms, and kale. One or two diced up store canned tomatoes with juice. Simmer for an hour and serve with crackers w/melted cheddar cheese.

Edited because when I was hunting around in my pie-safe where I keep dried things I found red bell pepper & turnips to add to the mix.

Sara, your soup sounds so fresh and light!
The spicy kombucha is simple. You take whole mustard seeds (I usually fill a quart canning jar about 1/2 full; it will expand). Cover with kombucha, checking daily to make sure seeds are covered with a layer of kombucha. Once the seeds expand, you won't have to add any more kombucha. After a few weeks or even months (this won't go bad), wiz it up in a blender or food processor. As smooth or grainy as you like. Not for the faint of heart! Very spicy, but you can cut it with honey or whatever. We love it here.
If you need a kombucha scoby to start your own, let me know.

Lisa, seeing I don't know what kombucha scoby is, but I do know I don't have it, so I will definitely need it along with a recipe.

Wouldn't my high school English teacher be proud of my run on & on sentence.

Sara, I remember going to my dad's ranch in the hill country in Texas, and after a long hard day of working the ranch we'd have a sardine dinner like the one you describe. Always with green onions. Your spring soup sounds good, too.

Lisa, Can I come for Oktoberfest too, please?

Sunday I took a roast out but it didn't thaw properly (don't get me started on that it's STILL winter here), so we had "veggie platters"! Loved it. Corn on the cob, brussel sprouts, garbanzo salad. Last night we had pork roast with fresh rosemary, pan seared fresh green beans, and sweet potato patties. Tonight we had Dansk Beouf, or Danish Beef. Sliced bread open faced sandwiches topped with a grilled ground beef patty, sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, pickles, saurkraut and onions, topped with brown gravy. So good!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

I have finally, after 3 years, figured out that I do not need to check post by post and just click on "active post" - what a difference it makes. So many posts coming up that I was not aware! I've enjoyed reading some of your menus! Yummy! Although not sure about that hot mustard!

Dinner tonight is one of my favourite.

Salmon stuffed with spinach, pesto, pine nuts and sun dried tomatoes
Roasted Brussel Sprouts (kosher salt, olive oil, bit of lemon)
Roasted sweet potatoes

Delish ....

Supper tonight...

Beef stew with dumplings (mixed up some extra and baked them off as biscuits for breakfast, as we have a busy day tomorrow.) My sons and their friends in their Contenders for the Faith group are hosting a cookout potluck lunch for their sister and her friends in her Keepers of the Faith group. The boys are working on a grilling badge.

Trying to decide between BBQ pulled pork or Roasted Rabbit for Easter? ( Rabbit is a rather large mama rabbit whom we put in the freezer last fall... had her for almost 3 year, but she had 17 babies in a total of 4 litters and lost all but 1 kit, which only survived because we gave her to another doe to foster... anyway, she was a big old New Zealand doe who ate a lot and was a terrible mother... plus she was also rather mean.)

What do you girls think?
