Pork chops with red wine gravy, curried rice, and seasoned green beans.

Yesterday I bought a pkg of 7 assorted pork chops. Got a great deal on them. Fried four chops and had one for lunch. With the other three I made frozen dinners with green beans and rice.

The other three were large cuts so they are in the oven with homemade bar-b-q sauce and onions. Will make pull pork for sandwiches. One sandwich for tomorrow's lunch and freeze the rest.

When you are cooking for one it's always good if several dinners can be made and frozen.

Cooked fresh black-eyed peas with dried mustard greens for tomorrow. Had a serving with mustard potato salad and spam for lunch.

Rotisserie chicken taco soup on stove now. Will freeze most of it.

Hi All,

Sorry I have been MIA here, but for good reason (tell ya later)! Tonight is smorgasbord, all sorts of nibbles and Chinese food for New Years Eve with another family and their children. Tomorrow will be Black Eyed Peas with onions, kale, garlic, and cajun spice!

Farmgirl Hugs, and Happy New Year,
Nicole

Nicole, black-eyed peas are okay but they need a lot of help to be really good. Will have to give the Cajun spice a try. I usually use Tex-Mex flavors.

Hi Sara,

I love, love, love the Cajun spice in the round container that I find at Bass Pro shop. I use that with fresh onion, bell pepper, kale, garlic and top with picante when serving.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

We had a dinner party tonight. Make it yourself lettuce salads with lots of goodies of your choice to put on. Then either salmon chowder or split pea with ham or both, followed by fruit and dip. Finished off with m and ms (Valentine colors). Yum!

Bonnie, your dinner party sounds like a lot of fun with plenty of yummy food.

Nicole, today I am cooking brisket 3 ways. Not so much recipes as how to. I cut a brisket in 3 pieces and marinated all in dry white wine for 2 hours. All will cook in 250 degree oven. Timer is set for 5 hrs but I will check on it after a couple of hours.

Brisket #1 - Largest piece with homemade mushroom broth, dry white wine, and dried button mushrooms. Will serve over mashed potatoes or rice.

Brisket #2 - With potatoes, carrots, green onions, 1/2 c tomato sauce, 2 sprigs rosemary, a little mushroom broth and white wine.

Brisket #3 - Homemade bar-b-Q sauce. Sometimes I like a thin sauce so I used mushroom broth as base and 1/2 can tomato sauce. Candied ginger, red pepper flakes, onion powder, cherry pepper vinegar, and S/P.

Thanks you for the compliments about the dinner party. It was our turn in a dinner at each other's house group that meets every other month. January in Minnesota is cold and snowing. Soup sounded like a good choice. Everyone seemed to enjoy it.

Sara, they all sound wonderful. I do miss a good Texas Brisket. They don't cut meat the same up here in the North. I have to make chili with ground beef. I used to have a butcher that would do a "chili meat" cut for me.

Last night I made DD's fave chicken pot pie with leftover cooked chicken, a bakeover crust, and potatoes and veggies. Tarragon added makes it so savory.

Will decide on what to make tonight in a bit...ideas for pork chops anyone?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole, I didn't know meat cuts were different 'up there'.

Today I'm doing thick cut pork chops 2 ways. I do all my cooking in the morning before MS fatigue sets in. On a buy one get one for a penny sale I bought 2 pkg of pork chops. Total of 6 chops.

#1: Two chops with yellow rice and mushroom broth. I make my own yellow rice seasoning. Enough mushroom broth left to freeze in ice tray.

#2: Four chops with diced tomatoes w/chilies and my Tex-Mex seasoning.

350 oven for an hour. The rice may take longer.

Hi Sara!

Funny, I am making pork chops today too! I am trying a new (new to me) recipe - will see how it goes. It's called "Colonial Pork Chops" with orange and cranberries. On the side, I will make a big green salad since I haven't done that in awhile (will toss mixed greens, carrots, blue cheese, tomatoes, and homemade dressing), and then baked sweet potatoes.

Yesterday (Sunday) was such a nice day. It was a stormy Sunday, so I made eggs and pancakes for breakfast, but for lunch we had supper: meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and peas. Danish Kringle for dessert. Nibbles for dinner - quick little sandwiches. Lots of family time. :)

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Omgosh! Those meals all sound so good!

Tonight we will have "Kathy Lee's mom's vegetable soup". So good!
Especially when it is 7 below zero here.

I have 1 butternut squash & 2 bosc pears in the oven at 425. Since I season them the same except for rosemary on squash they are in same pan. If rosemary flavors the pears that's okay too. I will use them in several different ways.

Seasoning: Organic maple syrup, butter, S&P, and cayenne peppers.

Bonnie, I just saw your message...you crack me up!

Tonight is Friday. I just finished cleaning the chicken coop and will do laundry and housekeeping today. It's cold but sunny and a big snowstorm is coming. SO...tonight I am making homemade sloppy joes. Doesn't that sound good? I asked DD and DH what they want tomorrow. They both want ANOTHER chicken pot pie. I told them I will make ONE more, then I am shelving that dish awhile. Ugh. I am tired of making it, but glad they love it, lol! Does your family get that way? Krista, your meal sounds delish! Recipe, please? Or was it posted on the other thread? :)

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Sara,

We eat potatoes a lot. My hubby being a Dane loves potatoes (me too). We try to incorporate turmeric in foods (we mix it in with fruit/veggies shakes). Never thought about mashed potatoes! Sounds good! How much/what else do you put in them?
