You are one lucky lady CJ! My hubby can make eggs, and mac and cheese from a blue box.

CJ-

YUM! YUM! YUM! Lucky lady you are!

Tonight I have an abundance of squash, so I am making a squash casserole, which will also be good with our Sunday morning egg breakfast tomorrow. Also will be making a pork roast in the oven with fresh garlic and rosemary, and I am looking forward to trying the "Mediterranean Pasta Salad" recipe that MJ posted on her journal yesterday. I have lots of ripe little tomatoes to use!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Yes, I am lucky! It's been a blessing over the years, as I had been working more than one job for several years. And, then in the last 2 1/2 years struggling with health issues and if it hadn't been for him being the good cook that he is, I'd really be in trouble

This morning he asked what I thought about his idea for supper tonight? We'll see and I'll let you know!

It's hot so I am snacking all day long today. Crackers with Spam & white cheddar cheese with a glass of Merlot was so good I had it twice.

Well, our supper was homemade and awesomely delicious Carrot Ginger soup, made from carrots and herbs we grow. My hubby tossed in a bit of zucchini from the neighbors garden and a bit of my homemade yogurt. It was DELICIOUS . . . finished up the last of the focaccia bread with it.

Linda, you crack me up! :)

CJ - OH MY GOODNESS! What time is dinner? ;)

Tonight I am making pork chops grilled in the skillet with an herb glaze from fresh herbs and tomatoes from the garden. On the side, sliced baked squash - trying a new way someone told me about today. Will let you know how it goes.

Nicole

Nicole,
We had that yummy soup two days ago! Yesterday it was roast turkey with herbs grown in our herb garden . . . rosemary and thyme. We had royal burgundy beans (they are not longer purple/burgundy after they're cooked, look like green beans) from the garden and baked potatoes (nope, we didn't grow them)

Tonight, it's pork bits,with all kinds of garden veggies, Caribbean style with mango marinade. Yup, hubby is the cook!

Made scrambled eggs and potatoes for supper, along with fresh bread from my bread maker! One of our favorites. Jon likes his plain, I put "stuff" in mine, bacon, onion, mushrooms, just about anything rolling around in the fridge. :)

Yum CJ! We had scrambled eggs for breakfast yesterday with peppers and onions in them. We also had toast with fresh homemade pesto, a slice of fresh mozzarella from the farmers market, and a garden fresh tomato.

The other night I got a hankering for my momma' chicken enchiladas. She made them in the seventies and eighties a lot. She actually won awards for them! I have the recipe. It's a good one for my family because they aren't spicy - there's no peppers or chiles! The filling has chicken, cream cheese, and onion. However, the original recipe calls for Velveeta on top - not natural and organic. So I tried to replicate the sauce with cheddar and milk. Have to work on it. Less milk next time, but still amazing! They were better yesterday for lunch, after a day. We had a side of avocado and fresh tomato seasoned with lime juice, garlic powder and sea salt.

Had hamburgers one evening with a side of golden beet salad made with a red onion. Love garden meals!

Last night we had grilled chicken marinated in lemon, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil with a side of veggies grilled in foil all from the garden: squash, yellow tomatoes, onion, and pepper. Sooooo good. Out for ice cream for dessert. Great summer day!

What's on your table?

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

My youngest son (4 yo) has requested chili for tonight... so chili it is, over rice, with cheddar cheese sprinkled on top. Yum!

Not dinner or supper. Nibbles & wine on my deck at 2p.m. with sister.
Tea style sandwiches, cheese, chips, etc.

Sara, that sounds so nice. "Nibbles". :)

Tonight is the last Sunday before school starts, so we are making organic hamburgers on the grill with big, Cherokee Green tomato slices from the garden, fresh onions I grew, and home made pickles.

It is still hot here, but I am getting a hunkering for stews, casseroles, and soups. I can't wait to bake some pumpkin spice bread, too!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Leftover lasagna that my hubby made . . . made his own pasta as well, very tender and tasty. Used ground beef that we raised.
AND, green beans from my garden, AND cherry tomatoes from my garden!

Mennonite deep dish onion pie. Haven't made it before ~~~ came across the recipe when looking for ways to cook eggs. Adding fresh winter savory ~~~ savory is good in egg dishes.

Italian cut greens beans and pickled beets should go good with it. Got to eat the beets so I can pickle eggs.

edited to add: Made the onion pie and it is really good. Sister came by while I was having early lunch. She had bought cooked ribs so she had some of the onion pie and I ate 2 of her ribs. Love impromptu meals. The green beans and pickled beets will just have to wait for another time.

Sara, I'd love to know how that Mennonite deep dish onion pie turned out. Can you share the recipe?

Tonight I had "Nibbles" (Sara, I just love that) at a friend's garden party. We had appetizers, sandwiches, and dessert.

I'm going to another garden party soon. Any suggestions on recipes to make? We are asked to bring something with substance (not just appetizers) that can be eaten at room temperature. Would love your ideas.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole, I've copied the recipe and will get it in the mail Monday.

To take to garden party anything in mini-tart shells: cheese w/herbs, onion pie, or meat pie. With store bought shells it should be easy to prepare and easy to carry.

I have been eating beans out of cans all summer long so today I am back to cooking dried beans.

White Tepary bean stew: I call it a stew because I added sautéed leeks, portabella mushroom, and dried kale. Fresh rosemary, sage, oregano, chives all in a bundle of green part of leeks tied with lemon grass.

The leek bundle is a trick I learned watching a TV cooking show. They tied their bundle with kitchen twine but I like the idea of using the lemon grass.

Sara,

I got the recipe in the mail today! Thank you! I am going to work it into meal time soon. I can't wait to try it. Looks really tasty. Thank you.

Last night I was treated to my dh making danish food: Frikadeller (pork meatballs in a brown gravy) over mash pototoes with side of red cabbage and apples. It was divine! We are eating it again tonight because he made enough for a small army (two nights off from cooking...hmmm...think I will knit a bit).

Loved your suggestions for the garden party, too, Sara.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Sara,
Nibbles sound good tonight, I might need to do that. Its so humid here today not interested in cooking, of course there is a mountain of fabric on the dining room table so I'd rather nibble and sew...

I am agreeing...today is so hot and humid "Nibbles" sound good. I'm thinking bread with pesto sauce and fresh mozzarella (from this week's organic farmers' market) topped with fresh garden tomatoes. For dessert, a slice of homemade pumpkin bread I made this week. Not the healthiest dinner, but sounds good...

Nicole

Tonight's dinner is in the oven already: stuffed peppers with organic beef, onion, cumin, garlic, cranberries, and pecans. Sounds funny but it is SOOOOOOO good. My daddy used to make it when I was little and he sent me a bag of Texas pecans, so had to make that tonight. I can't wait! The original recipe calls for raisins but I was out so I used dried cranberries, and it called for American cheese, which I used Havarti instead. Oh.MY. Taste buds are calling (I snuck a taste before stuffing...it's fabulous)!

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Hubby has steaks on the grill, sweet and red potatoes in the oven, and fresh green beans on the stove. And for dessert: Peach Buckle made from organic peaches picked from my best friend's yard. She lets me have as much as I want each year from her peach and pear trees (of course, she gets jam and spiced peaches in return).

What's on your table?
