Been away a bit.

Tonight is a busy day/evening and it is coooollllddd. I think I will make a hearty MJF bakeover since I haven’t made one in awhile. I made a Pork stew the other night and it was so good. Had the last of it for a hot lunch with garlic bread. What’s on your table?

Nicole, a bakeover sounds good.

It's warmed up veg-beef soup and nibbles for me.

Nicole, green beans and tomatoes is one of my favorite combos.

Today it's throw everything in the casserole pan and see what happens. It started with two zucchinis that needed to be cooked - added Uncle Ben's 90min Spanish Rice, stewed tomatoes, pre-cooked ground beef, tomato sauce, Mexican oregano, lemon thyme, shallots, garlic, and topped with shredded 6-Italian Cheeses.

It's cold here in northeast Texas - 20s today and in the teens tonight. I made confetti chicken soup. I called it confetti chicken when I canned chicken thighs with orange, red, and yellow bell peppers back in Sept. Added home canned chicken broth, carrots, celery, can tomatoes with chilies and Texas shaped pasta. Served over my sister's cornbread. Tasty if I say so myself.

Happy New Year, Farmgirls!

Been making some rib-sticking meals with this horrible weather. One meal was a new recipe that is sooooo delish - Cream of Cauliflower Soup. Made it with a delicious salad of mixed greens, kale, cranberries, clementines, peppers, red onion, and pickled cabbage.

It was an easy soup recipe but have been asked to make it again.
Made Boller i Karri (Danish food) over rice a few nights ago.

Last night I made Meatloaf with Brown Sugar topping, homemade macaroni and cheese soufflé and green peas. It was sooo cold.

What’s on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Last night, hubby made a family favorite, “millions of beef”, a Danish dish. Tonight I am making something from MaryJane’s new cookbook, Cast Iron Kitchen! Haven’t decided which recipe to do, all look so delish!

It's a nibbling day at my house. Last week I bought a bag of junior burgers at Braum's and froze them. That will be one of my nibbles - not the whole bag just one.

Tonight i'm thinking to make chicken soup from the leftover chicken we had last night. I love to put a little tarragon in my soup.

I tried out a recipe for Hands Off Chicken Wings this weekend and it turned out GREAT! They bake up nice and crispy in the oven! Made a Buffalo Sauce and some Garlic Parmesan Sauce to go with + some homemade Ranch and Blue Cheese dipping options. One of our guests told me the wings were BW3's quality - which was nice to hear!

I also made Cucumber Bites again - those are so good!

Then to use up the buttermilk jug I opened to make the wing dips I made pancakes for breakfast yesterday and then a batch of lemon blueberry muffins last night. Had a 1/2 cup of buttermilk left in the jug and I couldn't WASTE that!!!

So I took a recipe for Buttermilk Blueberry Cake and swapped out frozen sour cherries (thawed and drained). Did almond extract instead of vanilla. Added some cinnamon and chopped pecans. Turned out great!

I've frozen the muffins and will cut and freeze the cherry cake pieces as well. Makes quick breakfast option for me to grab and go.

As i posted on another thread,, MJ’s Baked Chicken and Squash was amazing! Made it with a side salad with a delicious salad/dressing combo I call “winter salad”. Last night was a whole baked chicken with sweet potatoes roasted in olive oil and cumin roasted Brussels. The leftover chicken turned into curry chicken salad with cranberries.

Jaime, the cucumber bites sound interesting!

Tonight my hubs is making a steak with baby potatoes and broccoli. Nothing special, but delish!

What’s on your table?

Nicole - You are making me hungry! Everything you mentioned sounds fabulous!

Here is a link to the Cucumber Bites:

http://healthyfoodadvices.com/cucumber-bites-appetizers/

I really love how great they keep in the fridge for several hours - so I can make them well in advance of having folks over and just pull out when needed! I'm even getting good at putting together my pastry bag with the tip/coupler and filling it - I bought a set of silicone bags online and I like them MUCH better than any I've gotten at the store!

Tonight I am making a New York Cheesecake (a crustless version) for dinner tomorrow - we are having friends over. I bought fresh strawberries that I'll cut and cover with sugar. I also have some cherry pie filling for folks who prefer it.

Got a roast out of the freezer this morning - I'll put it in the crockpot tomorrow morning to make Mississippi Mud Roast. I got buns and cheese slices to go with the meat which I'll shred once it's cooked.

I'm also making green beans - a yummy way on the stove that I've done before - you saute fresh minced garlic in a bit of butter and olive oil - then you put in beans (I use canned but fresh works too) and some chicken stock. Then you cover the pan but vent the lid a bit and let things cook until the stock mostly evaporates. Very good!

Making a simple salad too and homemade Creamy Parmesan dressing and homemade Garlic Croutons.

I've got appetizers in the freezer I'll pull out too probably. We will eat well!!! :)

Sara - The roast is SUPER simple! Have made it so many times! It also reheats great! I've often made it one day and then reheated and served the next - it almost tastes better that way!

Mississippi Mud Roast

3 lb chuck roast (or rump would work fine too I think)
1 ounce packet of dry ranch dressing mix
1 ounce packet of dry Au Jus gravy mix
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup water
5 or 6 pepperoncinis

Add water to crockpot and place roast on top. Sprinkle on ranch mix and then Au Jus mix. Cut butter into 6 pats and place on top of roast. Then put pepperoncinis around the roast. Cook on low for 8 hours or until roast is fall apart tender. Server as is with the gravy or I often take roast out and shred it using my Kitchen Aid, adding a bit of the gravy to the meat to keep it moist and then I serve it for sandwiches.

NOTE - If you can't find the Au Jus dry mix you can find DIY versions on Pinterest. I have one I've used before if the store is out of the packets!

My 4 yo and I are working on the short "i" for her schooling, so tonight we are having steak Involtini over pasta, and salad with Italian dressing. Not overly creative, but this was a hard sound for me to come up with ideas!!!

Thanks Jaime I'll print it out.

Today it's curried butterfly pork chops with sweet potatoes and carrots. I found two large butterfly pork chops in the marked-down bin for 4.18. Tomorrow I will make pork chop hash out of leftovers.

Happy Monday! I had a very good dinner made for me...

A friend made dinner for us on Friday: Hungarian Goulash over Spaetzle, Chicken Paprikash, salad, and hot buttered biscuits. It was delish! She wasn't thrilled with the recipe she used for the goulash. I have asked another friend born in Hungary for a recipe to try, though I thought dinner was amazing!

Last night we had a simple pizza... "white pizza with basil and ricotta". It was good and we ate it all. Tonight I am thinking a pork roast with fresh rosemary (my rosemary is very happy inside and doing well), with sunshine carrots and a big green salad. I am baking a loaf of Danish dark bread to surprise hubby.

Thanks for the recipes, girls!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Everything you all are mentioning sounds so GOOD!

Our dinner with friends turned out great! I almost burned the green beans - being distracted - but they just carmalized. They were SO good! DH asked if I added sugar to them they were so sweet - which I had not at all! I ended up using fresh green beans because they had some that looked nice for once at the store! :) I'm a bit of a fresh green bean snob having grown my own for a while!

I cooked an early supper for my sister and I. Yesterday I found two rib-eye steaks in marked-down bin so I cooked them in my big square cast iron skillet. Seared them on top of stove then finished in the oven. I have MJF cast iron book but couldn't find a recipe for rib-eyes so I did what I saw a chef do on the Food channel. They turned out really good.

Served with whole green beans and baked potato.

Today it's potato and kale soup with my home canned chicken broth, dried kale and dried onions. Love having the convenience of dried veg and home canned broths when I'm throwing together a pot of soup.

Oh! You gals are such good cooks!! What inspiration, and invite me to dinner!

I've got meaty manicotti in the oven and I'm sauteing sliced butternut squash in butter to serve sprinkled with S&P and cilantro from my kitchen garden. The last half of a parmesan-garlic loaf from Costco will round out the meal.

Keep sharing! I love this!
