Jennifer, that sounds yummy! I love crock pot comfort food!

I picked up a rotisserie chicken from Costco yesterday. Tonight we are having that with kale that I saute and cook down with onion and dried cranberries, and rice on the side. May make a little sauce to go on top.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

My sister is coming over after work at 5 for supper. Then we will watch the election returns.

We're having salmon patties, Tasha Tudor's potato patties, green beans, and Martha Stewart's Boston baked beans. My sister is bringing a chocolate cream pie.

Nibbles will be assorted cheeses and crackers.

Thursday I cleaned out the fridge and made a King Ranch casserole. Soooo good. Ate the rest for lunch, so last night we had homemade Panini type sandwiches with ham, honey mustard, cheddar cheese and apples, all warm and gooey. Tonight is a cold night, so we are having a beef stew with veggies. I'll simmer some red wine in it with tarragon - my mouth is already watering!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole, your stew sounds yummy. Tarragon is one of my favorite herbs. Can't grow it here in Texas because of the heat, but I do grow Mexican marigold "Texas tarragon" as a substitute.

Today I am making chili sorta like your pumpkin chili. Instead of pumpkin I am using butternut squash I roasted on Thurs. It's still cooking but so far it tastes so good.

I love chicken pot pie! There's a lot going on right now, so I just grabbed a pizza. It was a very good pizza, voted one of the best in the country: Pepe's Pizza. Every once in awhile I have to have one. It is different than other pizzas.

Nicole

Royal Corona Bean soup (a big white runner bean)with smelt small shell pasta, onions, carrots, tomato sauce,and smoked ham hock. So good. Had a bowl for lunch, one serving for tomorrow, and two for the freezer.

Smelt is an ancient grain.

It's 24 this morning with a hi of 40 so it's a perfect day for having the oven on. I've thawed the leftover leg of lamb for oven lamb stew. Also cooking dried hominy seasoned with onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, S&P, and Mexican oregano. Dried hominy is used in the classic southwestern and Mexican dish Pozole or (Posole).

Today I am cooking a big pot of chili all day long.... we are suppose to be getting our household goods today, and the high is only 15 degrees, so I figured we and the people bringing our things in, are going to need a warm bowl of chili to heat us up <3

Went to a new local dive bar. But they had the best chicken quesadillas, good gooey cheesy pizza, nice folks, a jukebox, and pool table!

Lisa sounds like a fun place and with good food too. In my younger days I use to go to what was then called honkytonks for pinto beans and corn bread on Saturdays for lunch. It was on the house. I didn't shoot pool but I did hold my own when it came to dominos.

The lamb stew was delish - probably one of my best dishes of all times.

I haven't changed the date much. Sorry girls.

Tried a new bar be que place earlier in week. Soooo good it made me homesick! The meat melted in your mouth!

Last night I baked a whole chicken and some yummy red and white baby potatoes and Brussels sprouts, roasted in the oven and seasoned with pink salt and dill. So good. I was baking all kinds of cookies for an upcoming cookie exchange, etc. I baked koulorakia (Greek), rosemary shortbread, and pistachio dipped lady fingers (hubby's fave). More baking today!

Nicole

Nicole I miss you and all the wonderful things you are cooking. The cookies sound yummy.

Today it's marinated roasted pork roast with sweet potatoes, carrots, onions, and a small can of sauerkraut. I used my own ACV and MJF Indian blend to marinate.

Pink salt is showing up in my new preserving books. One of the books gives a source so I will have to order some. I like to keep up with what's new when it comes to the kitchen and try it at least once.

Hi Girls,

After our dog passed away at Thanksgiving, then the holidays came so fast. I hostessed a farmgirl chapter Christmas Party, an Annual Christmas party, and when the neighborhood needed a new home to host the annual Cookie Swap, I volunteered, lol! Then we went to a Christmas party on Christmas Eve, and then I hosted another dinner party for my daughter, two of her friends, and two moms (a little "event" my daughter and her bffs wanted to do. Needless to say, with everything extra on top of "normal" life, I did a lot of cooking. I am now so happy it is a new year, and ready to start getting back to making "normal" meals!

New Years Eve was the three of us and our dogs! So nice! I made my mother's special, award-winning (literally) chicken enchiladas. They are so rich with three types of cheese, so good, but very involved. Good for a special event.

Since I was raised in the south, for New Years' Day dinner, I made Black Eye Peas for luck. I make them in a soup, with canned tomatoes, peppers, onions, apple smoked chicken sausage, and spices. SOOOOOOO good. I'll post the recipe here if anyone wants it. You can use any type of dried bean. We ate it with corn bread.

Tonight, I am warming them up as a side dish (good the second day, too). The main course is a parmesan crusted chicken breast topped with paprika. Can't wait - it smells so tasty!

So let's post more menu ideas and recipes here to inspire each other in 2017! What's on your table???

PS Sara, if you have a Costco near you, they carry pink salt inexpensively, as does TJ Maxx at times. :)
Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole, my sister's daughter gave her a bottle of pink salt in her Christmas box and she shared with me. Just got it yesterday so I haven't tried it yet.

I cooked black eyed peas & mustard greens together and froze two pint containers to use in soups or with pasta. I like greens cooked with any dried bean or pea.

Sara, You will love that pink salt! It is so delicious and better for you, too, than regular table salt.

Last night Hubby cooked Danish food. It was a cold, rainy day all day, so he made comfort food. "Millions of Beef" (translated from Danish) with beef and veggies and gravy over mashed potatoes.

Tonight I am making something kinda similar, I guess. I am making "Stroganoff" with beef cubes from a. 1940's cookbook. I was going to put it over pasta but Hubbs wants mashed potatoes again. :)

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

I'm up in the middle of the night but I know what I will cook tomorrow. A clear garlic broth soup with thin sliced roasted bok choy, shallots, carrots, mushrooms, and herbs. I'm combining several different recipes so will have to wait and see how it turns out.

Sounds good, Sara! I am making a chicken in herb and broth with a touch of white wine in the sauce. New recipe of an old fave so we shall see how it goes. On the side I think I will make a big green salad with a lemon vinegrette, and I think some Quinoa using one of the recipes MJ sent me once. I stocked up the kitchen so I have lots of good options! :)

The soup was very good. I used the pink salt to finish it. The recipe for garlic broth called for 1 - 2 tsp olive oil - I used the lemon olive oil I made. The lemon oil is one of the best things I have ever made. Love to cook with it. Recipe follows.

Lemon Olive Oil from Preserving Italy by Domenica Marchetti.

1 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
3 lg lemons - I had med size lemons so I used 5

1. Pour olive oil into heavy-bottom sauce pan. Use veg peeler to remove zest from lemon. Avoid the white pith. Add to oil. (reserve lemons for another use - I dried mine).

2. Turn the heat on low and let the peels steep for 15 to 20 minutes. The oil may sizzle a bit as the peels release their oils. Remove from the heat if necessary to keep the oil from getting too hot.

3. Let the lemon oil cool to room temperature. Remove & discard the peels. Strain the oil into a *wide mouth jar and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before using.

*I added the wide mouth jar because I find it easier to take out what I need. I don't bring it to room temperature each time especially if I am using it in cooking.
