Tonight was roasted chicken with Mac n cheese and a salad. Basic, but very tasty!

Nicole I can make a whole meal out of Mac n/ Cheese.

I bought a loaf of French bread so I'm thinking baked tomatoes with bread. One of my favorite things but will make only a small dish because I don't like to re-heat it. Baked potato and salmon patties. two patties for today - rest to freeze.

I will bake a very large potato - 1/2 today with butter - the other 1/2 for tomorrow's potato salad

Yesterday was Monday leftovers from the weekend. Lasagna from dh's birthday, and hubby ate the Fall stew I also made. Tonight we are going to our favorite little chinese place to celebrate our anniversary. I will be having Coconut Chicken curry. Now I need to find a recipe to make it at home, it's addicting! Feeling this week like it's time to make some pumpkin chili...

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole I have no idea what I will be cooking today. Maybe I will just nibble through the day.

In the fall when pie pumpkins are in season my oldest sister cooks stew in one. Uses the pumpkin for a pie. I haven't tried it but may this year. I do like roasted pumpkin and do it with other veggies. One of my other sisters and I are going to the local fruit/veg stand today. If pie pumpkins are in I may get a couple. I will use them for front porch decorations until I am ready for them.

Today I am working on garlic beds so it's ox-tail soup cooked in the oven. I started it on top of the stove and put in the oven to finish it. On a busy day who wants to be checking on what's cooking on the stove.

Today it's all out of the pantry. Pasta with jar of roasted red peppers, jar button mushrooms, fresh sage, garlic, dried Mexican oregano, and red pepper flakes. Nothing beats a well stocked pantry for easy cooking.

Oh my goodness, I am SO with you on that, Sara! I am SO happy I canned all summer! LOL! The past few days, dinners have been easy peasy! We've had chicken pot pie, Rachel casserole (as opposed to Reuben), Grandma's pot roast,and BBQ pulled pork sandwiches - all made with canned meat and veggies from the pantry! Then last night I made meatloaf with dehydrated mixed vegetables added into the mix (sometimes it's STILL the only way I can get my 20 year old son to eat his veggies - lol!) along with roasted potatoes using canned potatoes and homemade onion soup mix. Homemade ketchup was served as a condiment. We've also enjoyed an apple pie using a mixture of canned and dehydrated apples, and last night I made pumpkin dump cake using fresh pumpkin from the garden - YUM!!! I've had a chicken thawing in the fridge for a couple of days , so that is the goal for tonight's dinner - rubbed roasted chicken with onions. If it's not quite ready yet, then we'll be having homemade pepperoni pizza, using home ground wheat and pepperoni that I canned a couple of years ago! Either way, it's a win! :)

I'm so happy it's fall, y'all! 'Hope you're enjoying it as much as I am!

Hugs -

Last night I marinated chicken in a hickory/brown sugar bar be que sauce and grilled them. On the side was a green salad but even better was Hot German Potato salad made in the cast iron skillet using organic potatoes, Applegate Uncured bacon, onion and apple cider vinegar. It was SOOO tasty. Cooked up the leftover potato salad in said skillet again with eggs for breakfast.

My DH splurged on me yesterday on something frivolous...so tonight I have to make him his favorite Danish dish: Boller I Karri. Translates to Meatballs in Curry sauce, served over rice with a side of pickled beets, like his mom always made. :)

Farmgirl Hugs,

Nicole

Nicole, German potato salad cooked in an ironed skillet sounds yummy and something I will try.

Today I am nibbling. Latest nibble - half a can of sardines with my ACV, ketchup, and Tabasco Sauce with saltines. Annie had the other half of the sardines something about the thought of leftover sardines turns me off.

Hi Nicole -

Here ya go:

ONION SOUP MIX RECIPE

3/4 cup dehydrated/instant minced onion
4 tsp. onion powder
1/3 cup beef bouillon powder
4 tsp. garlic powder (optional - I use it.)
1 tsp. turmeric (optional - I use it.)
1/4 tsp. crushed celery seed OR 1 tsp. celery salt
1 Tbsp. dried parsley flakes
2 tsp. thyme (optional - I use it.)
2 Tbsp. sugar (less is fine – use according to taste)
1/2 tsp. ground pepper

Mix all ingredients together. If desired, you may and other flavorings to suit your taste. Store in an airtight container. Stir or shake well each time before using.

To make a bowl of onion soup, mix 2 tablespoons in a cup of boiling water. Simmer on low heat for 10-15 minutes.

For onion dip, mix 1 tablespoon (or to taste) in one cup sour cream. Let sit for a couple of hours in the refrigerator to allow onions to rehydrate.

Hope this works for you!

Hugs - Nini

Nini, great recipe and alternative to chemical laden packages of processed ones. I have a dehydrator, so this will be tried! I bet the onion dip you make is sooooo good!

Tonight I need easy. Hosting Girl Scouts tonight so we have to eat first. Thinking something like "One skillet mac and beef". Simple, classic, and always makes the kitchen smell so homey!

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Yay! I'm so glad you're going to try it, Nicole! YES! The dip IS delicious! Dare I say even better than the stuff in the packet? Yes, I do!!! I also have recipes for a Zesty Italian mix that's super good, and a Ranch Dressing mix. The Ranch Dressing mix is just not quite what I would like it to be. I recently read, though that a little bit of instant clear gel can be added to your homemade dressings if you'd like them to be a little bit thicker. Maybe that will make the difference!

For dinner tonight, it's either going to be homemade pizza or spinach pies... The dough is rising, and the day is long, so I will decide later today which it's going to be! :)

Does anyone have a good recipe for pasties? I thought I had saved one posted on MJF at one point, but I can't find it to save my life! I'd really appreciate it if you would share! Thaaaank you!

Hugs,

Nini

Tonight we are having leftovers :) I made Chicken Pot Pie with Cornbread Topping last night and I made a big batch because we love it and I knew we'd eat it a second night in a row!

I used pre-cooked shredded chicken from the freezer and defrosted 2 cups of homemade chicken stock as well - but the rest was fresh! Took a while to cut up all the veg but it was worth it! Definitely not light on calories though! Lots of butter and cream - YUM!

Oh Sara I love a good baked potato!
I am making a wing it dinner tonight, but I think it will turn out tasty!.. In the crock pot, deer loin steaks dredged in roasted garlic mustard, cracked pepper and kosher salt.. Added to the crock pot, a sliced sweet onion, rosemary, bay, red wine and Beekman 1802 beer jelly (for a bit of sweet). I wasn't sure about mixing the beer with the wine, so to speak, but it smells divine!
THen, I am sauteeing some kale from the garden with olive oil, garlic, and some garbanzo beans. I will stuff that mixture in acorn squash halves, and bake
It sounds good, but I will let you all how it turns out!

Lisa your crockpot supper sounds delish. Did you make the roasted garlic mustard? As to cooking with wine and beer I have done it in a beef stew. Merlot with a Irish beer, dark ale or stout. In the winter time I cook with all three.

I prefer Irish beer, ales, and stout at room temperature so they are handy in the pantry and perfect for cooking.

Tonight is farm to table dinner. Homemade sauerkraut with homegrown potatoes and onions and sausage. A side of steamed carrots, broccoli and cauliflower. The kids added bread and butter (and picked out the sausage from the sauerkraut!)

This weekend I made Gooseberry Patch Chicken Stuffed Shells - yum! Shredded cooked chicken + a box of stuffing mix (prepared) + mayo is used to fill jumbo pasta shells and then you pour over a sauce made from cans of cream of mushroom soup + water. Total comfort food!

Tonight I have some breaded shrimp to bake in the oven and to go with I made a copycat recipe of Red Lobster Tartar Sauce. Then I'll make a copycat batch of Cheddar Bay Biscuits to go with!

Jaime, nothing wrong with copy-cat when it tastes so good.

This morning all of my three sisters and I will be together for a take-out breakfast from Braums. Hot biscuits, extra gravy, sausage, bacon, and pancakes. Plenty of iced tea. No cooking or clean up just eating & visiting. After all that good comfort food I will nibble my way through the day.

My niece and her husband are visiting from Texas. Yesterday we ate at an Irish Pub for lunch (doing the tourist thing) and then for dinner Pepe's Pizza (one of the top-rated pizza places in the US). I'm not a big eat out all the time girl, so I am looking forward to dinner at home. Thinking of making King Ranch Casserole with a salad. For lunch we will finish the leftover Pumpkin Chili I made on Saturday. It was so good! I put it in the crock pot and simmered all day. It was so nice to come home to that aroma!

PS I also agree with Sara!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

It's a chilly fall day with snowy slush, so I am making Pork Fall Stew with cranberries and yams and apples. Smells so good simmering. I ended up making chicken and dumplings (my niece's favorite) the other night for her. We also grilled steak marinated in apple cider vinegar, olive oil and seasonings with home oven sweet potato fries, bearnaise sauce, and cumin roasted brussel sprouts. Yum!

What's on your table?

Tonight is crock-pot comfort food. Chicken breast with prepared stuffing mix, frozen green beans, cream of chicken soup & sour cream over the top. Comes out casserole-like.
