We just had a supper omelet with our own fresh eggs and portobellos It was very rewarding in that easy comfort food kind of way. Nothing compares to fresh eggs from your own hens.

I've been missing for a few days because I was studying for my final today for Master Gardening. However, this week was some pretty tasty meals. I tried a new recipe for a broccoli rabe salad, my hubby made some Milion Beouf (Danish food), and one night I made pork chops with homemade spiced pears over top. Soooooo yummy.

I agree, Annika. Eggs are better from your own hens, and I love eggs for supper!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Last night I made up a recipe for Vegan Vegetable Tofu soup. My grand daughter said it smelled and tasted so good. She even took a pic of it for Snapshot! She ate 2 bowls of soup and took some home. Happy dance!

We are trying to have more meals without meat. So, I've been going to make Cuban black beans and rice, but Drew wants blue cheese scalloped potatoes. So, I spoil him, but I like making them too and the beans and rice will be good this weekend. I love spicy leaved green salads with anything that rich, so it'll be arugula, torn mustard greens,frizee endive and mizuna. I am dying for a baked pear, so I'm spoiling myself too

Hello my farmgirl sisters and friends,
Thought I would share what I am doing for dinner tonight.
we are having brown sugar braised riblets
homeade mac and cheese served in roasted butternut squash bowls and cornbread
For dessert I made some of MaryJane's Sweet Potatoe Mousse but I did change something since I had butter nut squash I put half of the sweet potato amount and Half of the butternut squash about 5 ounces of each.
I hope everyone has an awesome weekend.
Hugs,
Angela#6681

My back fence neighbor is cooking out and will bring me a plate of ribs, baked beans, and devil eggs. Eggs are from my girls so I know they will be oh so good.

Sara,
Sounds so delish! Yum! My girls have slowed waaaaay down on egg laying with the weather.

Yesterday, I was so exhausted. Friends came over and we all had chinese takeout. It was so good, but I am drinking lots of water to flush my system as I know it is not that healthy, despite the veggies (not organic, high sodium, calories, etc., but it was a nice evening with a family we love).

Tonight I am making a veggie stew. I am pulling out fresh potatoes from the ground. They smell so good and earthy.
Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

This might sound a little gross, but it turned out really well. How could you go wrong with a Good Housekeeping recipe, right?

Thai chicken made in the crockpot, and the sauce was a combo of salsa, peanut butter, lime juice and a little soy. I threw in some Thai red chili paste and a little fish sauce because I had it.

When I first read the recipe I think I may have wretched a little! But I love Thai food and thought "what the heck". It was delicious and is now in the rotation for dinners. It is a make-ahead and freeze thing, which bumps it up in position in the rotation!

Cindy, you cook like I do ~ follow a recipe but add your own touch.

Today is oven veg/beef bone soup. First time to do it in the oven so I will just have to wait to see how it turns out. It should be ready by lunch.

Angela, your meal sounded so good, too.

Sara and Cindy, I do the same! I always add my own touch. I love that.

Last night we had a steak on the grill with a side of broccoli, and fresh potatoes I had dug up that morning. Even DD said the potatoes were delish, but the only thing different is they were home grown fresh! :)

I made Indian (North American) Corn Soup according to a recipe. It turned out very (as in extremely) bland. I wonder if it was meant to be. So, basically, I have a mixture of hominy-like corn, diced ham, pinto beans and red beans. Today I bought andouielle (?) sausage, diced tomatoes with. I think with seasoning and a touch of vinegar and savory seasonings I can make something more our tastes. Wish me luck.

Judith, I like your choice of seasoning. I put 1/2 can of hominy in veg soup ~ chickens get the other half.

Early supper will be twice baked potato with Wolf Brand chili and shredded 5 Italian cheeses. Cheese was in marked down bin - any cheese would be good.

Cold snap! We are wanting comfort food! Last night I made a family favorite: Fall Pork Stew with apples, sweet potatoes, cranberries, and scallions. It smells so good on the stove and tastes amazing. Tonight I am making my favorite childhood dinner: One skillet macaroni and beef!

Tonight is leftovers (Butternut Squash Lasagna) and a stuffed bread I made and froze a couple weeks ago. I used a basic French Bread dough recipe and then after the first rise I rolled it out and filled with a glut of cheeses I had on hand, cheddar, mozz, muenster, etc. as well as a boat load of pepperoni and some salami. Rolled it up jelly roll style, filled the ends with more cheese before tucking them in and then flash froze.

It has been thawing in the fridge overnight and I'll put it to rise when I get home. Can't wait!!!

Tonight will be special. I went to Olive Paris, the olive oil shop, and my niece gifted me with a bottle of pumpkin spice balsamic vinegar. Tasted it on a little crust of bread. It is so yummy. I bought a pkg of butternut squash pasta, shaped like little squash. Will make a simple sauce with pumpkin spice vinegar, olive oil, and a little butter & garlic.

Sara, your dinner sounds delish! I love pumpkin!

Tonight I am making a bakeover crust chicken pot pie. We had one not too long ago, and DD is begging for another.

We had a broccoli slaw last night with a baked chicken. It was mashed egg sandwiches Monday as we were hostessing a Girl Scout troop meeting, but desserts were wonderful. I baked dark chocolate organic brownies, another lady made rice krispie treats.

Nicole

Jaime... your cheesy pepperoni salami roll dinner sounds amazing! Yu-u-um!

Oh my GOSH, Sara! Pumpkin spice balsamic vinegar?! I'd be in HEAVEN!!! That sounds wonderful!!! I bet your pasta is going to be fabulous! Enjoy!

I am thinking of making stuffed cabbage tonight.... The cabbage in the garden is ready, our side of beef is in, I've got awesome homemade sauce sitting in jars in my pantry... and although it's a nice 70 degrees outside, the house has retained the chill of the last few days, and my oven is aching to warm up our home. It's time! Stuffed cabbages it will be!

Does anyone have a recipe for black bean brownies they would like to share? I have been hankering for brownies this week (again - cold weather makes me want to bake good things!), but I'd like to try making them a bit healthier... I've never tried black bean brownies before, but I think it's time to try! :)

Tried my hand at making a Shepherd's Pie for the first time - used ground beef instead of lamb and added mushrooms, carrots and celery and onions to the meat mixture. Used a packet of brown gravy mix (will have to learn how to DIY those!) and the end result was YUM-OH! Made Pioneer Woman mashed potatoes to go on top and we had a very happy husband in our house! :)

Nicole, Pumpkin chili ~ I'm going to have to give that a try. Do you use fresh or can pumpkin?

Today I am working on intermediate Apple Badge so I will be cooking apples in 3 dishes. Link sausage with apples & sauerkraut ~ apricot brandy baked apple ~ apple crisp.

Hi Sara,

I make my "regular" Texas chili, with beef, tomatoes, and beans, spiced with chili powder, etc, but then add a can of organic pumpkin,and for each pound of meat, I add cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and a bit of sugar. It must simmer a while or otherwise you taste the pumpkin. The pumpkin puree needs to cook down. OMG it is soooo good. My friend's husband eats like four bowls when he comes over on Halloween!

Tonight is brown sugar sauced meatloaf with a new recipe I am trying that one of the other farmgirl bloggers posted (apple stuffed acorn squash). Smells heavenly. For dessert, pumpkin bread!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole
