Tonight we are having glazed pork chops with roasted butternut squash (the last one from last year, stayed really nice in our root cellar) and sweet potato.

Our root cellar is finally clear of 2016 and ready to load up with 2017 squash (acorn, butternut, and spaghetti), sweet potato, potato, onion, garlic, and apples.

Hi Katie
It has a larger bowl on the bottom then another smaller capacity bowl fits inside that one then the lid can be set right side up for a lid or upside down for another cooking compartment.

I put creamy chicken rice ingredients in the bottom piece. I put veggies and breaded chicken in the middle piece then flipped the lid and put in peach dump cake with pecans. Cooked it for 25 min. Let it set for 5. It all came out pretty good but a little messy. The dump cake spilled over a little but not too much. Could have cooked the chicken just a bit more by itself. I will use the stack cooker again. They are a bit pricey at TW. I bought mine from a TW rep. that was selling her overst5ock.

A bakeover pan from MJF is just a little over a third of the full price of a stack cooker. I will be getting one next purchase.

TW

The fun begins where the pavement ends!

Katie, which recipe do I owe you? I've forgotten which one you wanted, I am sorry. Nancy that recipe sounds good.

Last night I was pooped so DH made dinner. We had potato knishes with tomato based sauce.

Tonight I'm making pork chops in the cast iron skillet, simmered in a creamy mushroom sauce using a box of organic cream of mushroom soup and adding fresh basil, fresh tomatoes, and garlic. Simmer until they are tender. YUM! On the side I am going to try to replicate a dish we had at a local bistro: sautéed Brussels sprouts with garlic and pink salt. For dessert, a splurge: fresh pumpkin ice cream from our local ice cream shop.

Yesterday we had veggie burgers which were pretty good. Organic frozen, yet good. It was Open House at the high school. The fresh tomatoes on top made them really good. I will miss garden tomatoes!

Need inspiration for easy tonight...any ideas girls? Too much to do to do a big dinner.

This morning I canned 4 pints Chicken Confetti. Had enough leftover for two servings. Made a rue using chicken fat and added more homemade chicken broth. Mix it all together with Uncle Ben's 90 Minute Rice. Kinda of a chicken & rice casserole on top of the stove. Turned out really tasty and will have it again for lunch tomorrow.

Chicken Confetti: Roasted chicken thighs with red, orange, & yellow sweet peppers, jalapeno peppers, and purple onions in chicken broth. The different colored peppers & purple onions reminded me of confetti.

Thanks Jaime, it turned out really good.

Today I started marinating a chuck roast to have sauerbraten (sour beef pot roast)for Apple Pie Sunday dinner. I haven't had it in years and have been wanting to make it, so, today I decided it was the time to do it. The recipe is from my Mennonite Cookbook - Food That Really Schmecks by Edna Staebler. Between now and Sunday all I have to do is flip the zip lock bag over once a day. I'm cook it low and slow Sunday morning.

Sara, that sounds so good! I am slowly but surely getting hubs to appreciate German foods. He has started to accept it more since we attend a super authentic Oktoberfest in the rural area of western Cincinnati. (of course the Warsteiner beer probably helps)
I'll have to try it

Nicole I made your Greek spaghetti sauce today and it's probably the best sauce I have ever made. I didn't find the cherry wine so I added 1 Tbsp of cherry brandy to the 1/4 cup of sweet wine. The sauce had just the right hint of cherry. The next time I make it I will use Merlot with the cherry brandy. Hope it works as well as the sweet wine because I drink dry wine and don't know what I am going to do with rest of the bottle of sweet.

No. I asked for it and she sent it to me. I hope you ask her for the recipe because it's that good. My neighbor dropped by and I microwaved a sample for her. She raved about it and then I told her about the cherry brandy and sweet wine. I sent her home with a serving and pasta for her supper.

I canned beans this morning and had quite a bit of bean broth leftover with a cup or so of beans. So I use the beans and broth as my soup base and everything else except for one can of diced tomatoes is either what I dried or canned.

One pint jar of each: beef broth; beef chili, rustic potatoes.
A hand full or two of dried: kale, zucchini, yellow squash, yellow onions, green onions, and a big pinch of cayenne pepper. Topped it off with a Tbsp of Worcestershire Sauce.

Sara, I would love to come eat dinner at your house! Your food always sounds delicious and I am so impressed with how much canning you do. I'm actually jealous and wish I could as much as you!

Hi guys,

Sorry I’ve been MIA. Had a problem with my iPad. All better now. Lisa, send me your addy and I’ll mail my recipe to you. It’s my grandmother’s own, so I just want to keep it special and send it on a handwritten card. Maybe that is silly, but I don’t have much from her, as she died when I was little. Sara, I’ m thrilled to pieces that you liked the recipe!

Tonight I’m making “ tostadas “: seasoned ground beef on top of a light,y pan fried corn tortilla. On top we will put black beans, fresh chopped tomatoes, lettuce, onion, and cheese, and a dollop of plain yogurt. Easy and filling for a busy Saturday.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Made Mimi Thorisson's (French Country Cookbook) pear cake and just put in the oven Nancy Fuller's (Farmhouse Rules) crustless broccoli and ham quiche. The house smells wonderful tonight!

Enjoy your dinners!

Krista, sorry I missed your post. You're always welcomed. As far as canning goes you gotta remember I small batch can for one person. May share a pint or two with sisters.

My grand-niece, mother of soon to be four year old triplets, canned persimmon jam the other day. She and you who have little ones and yet get a lot done have my admiration.

So had a super-busy day yesterday and knew I wouldn’t get home until kind of late as I had plans with my best friend. What does a farmgirl do when she has happy hens who give her a ton of eggs, and she grew way too many tomatoes?



She makes a homemade quiche! I grew the chives, tomatoes and carrots and made it using Swiss and cheddar cheeses. Used MaryJane’s butter crust recipe fo the crust. It was HEAVEN to come home to. We ate the WHOLE thing, little piggies we were! I served it with halved avocados on the side, garnished with lemon juice, salt and garlic powder. SOOOO yummy!

What’s on YOUR table?

Farmgirl Hugs, Nicole
