Burgers from our own beef and probably spinach salad.
I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO grateful that my hubby does most of the cooking these days!

It's 10 degrees this morning so I'll be firing up the oven soon. I have dried eggplant hydrating to make Italian sausage meat sauce, spaghetti topped with fried eggplant and parmesan cheese. I'll use some of the eggplant water to loosen up the sauce. Italian sausage was cooked before freezing so the dish will be easy to put together. Bake in pre-heated 350 oven for 45 min.

Tonight is homemde chicken noodle soup with home farm-raised chicken and veggies with sourdough bread & butter on the side. It's been simmering for the past hour and my house smells delicious!

Sara, thanks for the lemon olive oil recipe, sounds so delicious. CJ I know that your burgers must be soooo good!

Bridgette, potato soup is my hubby's favorite, and I have that on my list to make soon, too, I bought bacon for it this week. I bet it was good on a snowy day! We have had a huge snow today, so we will have Danish comfort food. I am making "Dansk Boller i Karri". It's pork meatballs in a curry sauce over rice, with a side salad and lemon dressing. One of my hubby's childhood dinners. My daughter and I made chocolate chip cookies, so that will be dessert tonight.

Lenora, that ham pot pie sounds relish. Do you have a recipe?

The other night my chicken was soooo good! My family all had two helpings, there were no leftovers, and I was asked when I will make it again. I took chicken breasts and pounded them down thin. I put olive oil in a cast iron skillet, and browned six cloves of garlic. Then I browned the chicken. We had a leftover opened bottle of white wine from a Christmas party (we don't drink white wine usually). I added one cup of white wine, one cup of chicken broth, and a few pats of butter. I added fresh parsley, a few handfuls of kale, a can of mushrooms, and two tablespoons of capers. I simmered it down then added pasta, cooking until it was al dente. Soooo yummy and one skillet!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

I got my new MJF in the mail this weekend. I was going to make Sloppy Joe's tonight, trying Ashley's recipe with the molasses in it from page 49. Today is super cold (in the negative degrees, no higher today than low 20's), so I am also thinking fresh homemade bread using my favorite recipe and homemade potato soup. Both sound good, but time is getting away from me today. I'll make one today and the other tomorrow. Both sound very good and I have all the ingredients.

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Leftover chill with meat. Made from locally grown (by a friend) pinto beans and our own homegrown beef.
Made a big batch so there would be leftovers . . . I think the leftovers are better as the flavors have had more time to blend!
Hubby made some cornbread to go with!

Last night was shrimp and alfredo noodles, butter bread.
Tonight is Chinese chicken with fried rice....maybe some added broccoli and carrots, I feel in a veggie mood!! Oh and crab rangoon, how could I forget those, their the best.

You guys are making me want sloppy joes....those may hit the menu next week. Not J's favorite but he can trudge thru, LOL!

Tonight is one of our winter favorites -- baked potato topped with cottage cheese for Dude, shredded cheddar for me, turkey bacon bits, chopped green onion, chopped bell pepper, chopped carrots, chopped celery --- just lots of veggies -- ha! A generous shake of black pepper, and YUM! I have been on Weight Watchers for several months, and this is a great meal for both of us.

Last night was tacos/nachos between the middle school basketball game and dance class.

Today was a snow day for everyone in the house! Sausage with sauerkraut, onions, potatoes & red/orange peppers with green beans and sourdough bread on the side.

Tomorrow our Wednesday night religious Ed starts back up so dinner will be whatever Ms. Dorothy cooks!

Shannon - my favorite way to cook a pork tenderloin is to throw it in the oven with fresh rosemary, or make "Fall Pork Stew" - a one skillet recipe with sweet potatoes, cranberries, and apples. It is so good that picky eaters love it, too.

Kiersten your dinner sounds delish. I love greek seasoning!

The recipe for sloppy joes in the new MJF mag was delish! The molasses and honey add great flavor.

My potato soup turned out delish. It's a recipe of my dad's from the 90's but I think I will experiment a bit to make one that is not quite as rich next time.

I am thinking homemade pizza tonight with fresh dough, tomatoes, peppers, and fresh basil.

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Tonight I am cooking up some cheese ravioli from the freezer - will use store bought alfredo (for sake of time) and make the last of the cheesy garlic bread from my freezer cooking efforts in late fall!

Hubby is watching the Seattle Seahawks game... so in a wee bit we will be firing up the BBQ and grilling Brats....but I am searving them with a tossed salad... that's as close to cooking as I will be today! Lol!

We enjoyed spaghetti and meatballs for dinner! I had made up about five pounds of ground beef into meatballs in December, then froze them; so it was virtually no work at all! LOVE easy dinners on busy nights!

Used up another freezer meal last night - Chicken Alfredo Broccoli Lasagna Rolls - they were very good! I think I would increase the amount of sauce next time though as parts of the noodles were dried out and tough from not being covered. But overall a success!

Hi Farmgirls,

Sorry I haven't changed the date lately. I have been laid up with the flu and bronchitis, so our dinners have been mostly chicken soup. Last night, I started to feel a bit better as fever is gone now. DH went shopping and made pulled pork sandwiches. It was pretty tasty. Tonight I have organic chicken breast thawed so I will grind it and make chicken burgers for a nice change of pace.

Your dinners all sound so good!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole, sorry you were sick and glad you are back with us. Tonight it's baked potato with butter.

I found a pkg of four thick pork loin chops in marked down bin today and have them marinating in the fridge. Made my own Bar-B-Q marinate. Will cook tomorrow in a little Irish beer and have a small portion for lunch. Plan on making sliders out of the rest to freeze.

Last night we had chicken patty sandwiches and Roasted Parmesan Carrots. Very good! The chicken patties are the precooked breaded kind - I buy them from Sams. We just had them on hamburger buns with cheese and slices of cooked bacon I had in the freezer. The carrots were amazing! It was a new recipe I tried in order to use up the last of the carrots in the fridge! It's a keeper!
