Jaime please post your recipe for Roasted Parmesan Carrots. I roast carrots all the time but never thought about adding cheese.

Sure! I halved the recipe, cut up regular carrots into slivers and used dried parsley at the end. I also used freshly grated Parmesan. :) Worked great!

Parmesan Roasted Carrots


yield: 8 SERVINGS prep time: 5 MINUTES cook time: 25 MINUTES total time: 30 MINUTES

Ingredients:

4-5 cups baby carrots
1/4 cup olive oil

1 to 2 Tablespoons panko bread crumbs, optional
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, more to taste
Chopped parsley, optional

Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Place the olive oil, garlic, parmesan, bread crumbs, salt and pepper in a large zip top bag. Add the carrots and shake until they are well coated. Then spread out onto the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until tender. Toss with a spatula half way through.

Remove from oven and serve immediately. Top with fresh parsley if desired.

Oh, Jaime! YUM! I'm printing this one out, too! Thank you!

Tonight I'm going to try a new recipe: stuffed pepper casserole! I am really looking forward to this one! :)

Hi Farmgirls.

I haven't been cooking up to my usual par. I am still not feeling well. I am the 18th day or so of coughing with no voice! Anyway, that recipe looks great, Jaime!

Tonight I bought a rotisserie chicken from Costco. It's not organic, and rotisserie can be greasy, but it's quick and better than other things. On the side we will have a salad with greens and oranges, tossed in a olive oil/apple cider vinegar dressing, and some little baby pototoes boiled with parsley and butter.

Last night was chicken burgers (not my usual self made, but Trader Joes. They were pretty good) with fresh sweet potatoes cubed in the oven as oven fries.

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole I'm sorry you are still not feeling well. Hope you are completely over it soon.

Tonight it's my new standby. Baked potato, a little butter, with my homemade sauerkraut on top.

Hi Sara, Thank you. I am thinking I am almost there...finally starting to have energy and my voice sounds much better than before.

I will have to try your baked potato with sauerkraut! We eat a lot of sauerkraut, as it is a staple in Denmark. Last night, my hubby cooked an AMAZING meal. We had fresh organic cauliflower soup as an appetizer, then we had my favorite Danish dish: Millions of Beef over Mashed potatoes, with a side of...sauerkraut!

Sunday and Monday we had a MaryJane Bakeover, as I just got my MJ Budget mix baking mix in the mail. I had run out and ordered it recently. Love it!

Tonight I am going to make white bean veggie chili with kale.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nothing special today. Went grocery shopping this morning so I am nibbling rest of the day. Right now I'm nibbling on a fresh baked pretzel from the deli. Better get the other two in the freezer before I nibble on them.

I bought a 5# brisket to make corned beef. It was the smallest brisket they had and I only needed 3# for the corned beef. I marinated the remaining 2# with a bottle of Irish beer overnight and will cook it today for sandwiches.

I have had last minute, sort of surprise (he called a week ago and said "think I will visit, ok?") company from Denmark this week. It is a family friend, someone my dh has known since childhood. So I have made some nice dishes. We had a French beef stew, which was fabulous two nights (I made a lot), a chicken broccoli casserole (always a favorite) and tonight another family favorite: Texas Rice and Beans. Last night we went out for dinner for Valentines. :)

Sara, your post reminded me. I have a big bunch of corned beef brisket frozen downstairs from last year. A client of my husband's gave him a whole side of corned beef (not like the packaged stuff in the stores, this is better). I should make some!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole if you decide to make corned beef and need recipe I can copy and sent it to you.

Today it was potatoes, garlic, link sausage, and Irish beer sautéed with my sauerkraut. Tasty!

Tried a recipe I thought up last night and it turned out pretty good!

I guess it is a Pot Roast Casserole :)

The last time we made pot roast I froze the leftover meat - last night I took that, sliced fresh mushrooms, sliced carrots, cream of mushroom soup, shredded cheddar cheese and a bit of beef broth - all mixed together and put in a casserole dish.

Then I made instant mashed potatoes (my first time using these - although I've always wanted to try using them to thicken soups) and put those on top.

So I guess it was kind of a Shepherd's Pie? I could have added corn too, now that I think of it! And DH suggested adding A1 sauce next time.

In any case, it was a hit :) I have the last little bit in my lunchbag for lunch today.

Tonight's dinner will be grilled Ahi tuna, asparagus, and probably sliced tomatoes with avocado -- topped with a little balsamic drizzle. We eat pretty fresh and it feels good!

Last night I made Cheesy Potato Soup in the crockpot - turned out pretty good! I used homemade chicken stock from the freezer, carrots, celery, onion and frozen hashbrowns. Thickened some milk with Clear Jel and added a bunch of cheese. Cooked it all in the crockpot and DH seemed to like it. The hashbrowns didn't really soften up as much as I'd hoped, they were still a little crunchy but it was okay. Next time I'll try a different method on the potatoes and maybe add different types of cheese to deepen the flavor.

DH took the last of it to work today for lunch!

Jaime, it passed the test - he took it for his lunch. lol A big pot of cheesy potato soup is always good.

Today it's boneless pork chops baked with red cabbage, prunes, red wine, red wine vinegar, and sage. Will have with my homemade gnocchi.

Mmmm...homemade gnocchi! :)

Last night we had pan fried burgers (finishing up the last of the premade patties I bought from Sams a while ago and have had in the freezer) and DH's favorite salad - Cucumber Avocado! It's so simple and easy!

I have a easy recipe i just made this past weekend. I guess it is a cold wrap or if you live in New York city a sandwich according to the TV show Food, Fact or Fiction. Long story for another time.

I had baked chicken breast in the oven in a casserole dish with the lid. I sprinkled with dried herbs and baked until done. Put into the fridge to cool. Then when cooled cut into pieces added shredded cabbage, cucumber ranch dressing and a cucumber cut in small pieces. Put all this in a whole wheat tortilla and rolled up. Great for a hot day. We ate them with chips.

We pan fried breaded shrimp last night and I had made a copycat recipe of Red Lobster tartar sauce to go with. Since we had the mix in the house I also went ahead and made a batch of Cheddar Bay Biscuits!

Hi Jonni! I haven't seen you around in awhile! Hugs!

Fairlee, Pizza is always good. We have been doing that a lot lately. We are surrounded by good pizza here, and I also love to make my own.


I have been crazy busy and was crazy tired for so long. Now my energy is back up. I made a couple of bakeovers. Last night was really yummy. Fast too, as I forgot to plan dinner. (Insert embarrassed emoji here). SO, I boiled pasta, tossed it with colorful heirloom tiny tomatoes I bought recently, fresh asparagus (steamed just slightly), capers, parmesan, baby spinach, with olive oil, garlic, and lemon. Oh it was good! No leftovers!

Tonight I am making corned beef, with potatoes and will steam the rest of the fresh broccoli. Had a hankering for corned beef.

What's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole
