Hi Farmgirls,

I am so sorry to have Ben away a bit. Missed this post, and you all.

How was eveyroneís Easter? I cooked. After church, my best friend and her family joined us at our house. I made a glazed ham, cream potatoe casserole with nutmeg (Danish), steamed fresh asparagus and hollandaise sauce, fluffy rolls, and for dessert, a Chocolate glazed cake and meringues my daughter and I made the night before. For appetizers, we had deviled eggs and my friendís husband brought his special sausage rolls (New Zealand). We were stuffed!

Ate leftovers yesterday as there was so much. Tonight my dd has a friend over who ďonly eats pizzaĒ... so I am making homemade pizza. I think I will make a white pie.

Whatís on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Supper will be one dish roasted in the oven. One large portabella mushroom with olive oil, a thin layer of diced tomatoes with green chilies, topped with yellow Indian woman dried beans and grated 5-Italian cheeses.

Hello all! Hope everyone had a good Easter! We visited family, prime rib with creamy horseradish sauce was the main - yum! I made Cucumber Bites, Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Little Smokies and Deviled Eggs. And a lemon cheesecake topped with fresh strawberries and freshly whipped cream I added lemon zest to. Everything was so good!

Indian woman dried beans? Never heard of these. Are they like pintos? Maybe?

Donna, yellow Indian woman heirloom beans is called Buckeyes in some areas. It's thought to be originally from Montana. In texture it resembles the black turtle bean. It's yellow/gold in color but when cooked it looks like pintos. Most beans lose their distinct color when cooked and look like pintos.

I buy heirloom beans from Rancho Gordo in CA - it's fun just to read about all the different beans. Today I pressured canned four pints of eye of the goat beans.

Hello all! I've been roasting a lot of chickens lately and asking myself why I haven't been doing it sooner, lol. Last night we had cold roasted chicken and stovetop stuffing.

Tonight we are having Smoked Sausage and Roasted Butternut Squash.

I'm baking potatoes tonight too for making Baked Potato Soup tomorrow.

I hear ya Jaime. I roasted a chicken last night in the cast iron skillet and rubbed with some turmeric. It was so flavorful, and the pot drippings were scrumptious.
Have been picking on it all morning. LOL

Roasted chicken is yummy. I like to put lemon slices under the breast skin and in the cavity with garlic; thyme and/or rosemary.

Today it's kale potato soup with link sausage cooked in hambone broth, water, and white wine.

Sara- I think I live a very sheltered life because I have never heard of any of those beans. LOL Maybe I need to find a place to buy some of these. I live in Georgia. Pintos and Large Limas are about as "exotic" as it gets. Lol

Donna I had no idea the number of dried beans until I visited this site https://www.ranchogordo.com/collections/heirloom-beans

I have ordered from them for almost ten years.

Today I canned chow-chow so I made easy-does-it vegetable soup with smoked link sausage. I used leftover roasted potatoes, carrots, onions, green beans, garlic, dried spaghetti squash, dried celery leaves, home canned veg broth, and store can tomatoes and tomato sauce. Let it simmer for a couple of hours.

Itís been cold here AGAIN, so when I have cooked, itís been comfort food! Made a big chicken with a spice rub (oh so good). You mix the spices together (if anyone wants the recipe, let me know, Iíll post). You just sprinkle over the chicken, slice some veggies like onions and carrots around it, and cover. It smells like Heaven when it bakes. We ate that with boiled baby potatoes and a kale stir fry I make with onion and dried cranberries. I just take a little olive oil, a chopped onion, and some kale. Stir fry and add a hand ful of the cranberries. It is soooo good!

The next night I made chicken pot pie with the leftover chicken, adding tarragon to it and mixed veggies.I topped with MJFís drop biscuits using MJís Budget mix.

I also made chicken sausage links with a mango quinoa recipe I once got from MaryJane. Itís so good and different.

Tonight I am thinking crock pot. Any ideas?

Nicole please post your rub recipe.

Baked thick pork chops with brown rice, my canned dried Caballero white beans with my curry mix. I don't have a recipe to share for the curry mix. I don't remember all the ingredients or proportions - guess I should write it down when I am mixing up spices. MJ has a very good Indian rub in her Ideas Book. I make it when I have all the ingredients on hand.

Hi to all. Our supper as we hillbillies say was beef wellington, mashed potatoes with chives and a great big salad. Us hillbillies don't always eat cornbread and beans. It's my husbands birthday and I also made him a pistachio dream cake with cool whip icing. I am so full. We go to his 90 year old mothers for another dinner tomorrow---what a great eating fest for us---but I still have to wash all the dishes,

Sara,

Here is the rub:

Mix together: 1 tsp. organic sugar, 1 tsp. Garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon, 1 tsp. Cumin, 1 tsp. Paprika, 1 tsp. Coriander, 1/2 tsp. Pink salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I use the whole amount for a whole chicken, then cover and bake.

I made roasted veggies the other night which I ate rewarmed for breakfast: Sweet potatoes, new potatoes, red potatoes, Brussels, red peppers, carrots, onion, and red beets. Tossed with cumin, garlic, salt and olive oil. Roasted them until browned. OH SO GOOD!

Last night, I made a pasta toss with gluten free penne, capers, natural apple smoked chicken sausage, feta, cherry tomatoes, fresh garlic, arugula, and olive oil and lemon juice. Yummy and fresh tasting.

TOngiht, I am not sure yet. Ideas?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole thanks for the recipe - I have copied it.

We are sisters at heart for sure. I eat a lot of leftovers for breakfast. I prefer eggs and bacon/sausage for supper.

Been up since 7 and haven't eaten - still drinking hot tea. When I do get around to it it'll be a baked potato with apple cider vinegar with herbs.

Nicole---beef wellington is always my husbands idea, but I like it too. It's so easy. Buy a box of frozen puff pastry and four six ounce steaks. Brown the steaks in one tablespoon of olive oil and chill. Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper and some garlic powder if you like garlic before you brown them. Put one more tablespoon of oil in your steak browning skillet and saute a medium onion and two cups of mushrooms in it. Roll each piece of pastry to a 9 by 13 rectangle and cut in half. Place a steak on each half and top with the onions and mushrooms. Pull the corners together and seal them. Put on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes I may have misspelled saute, but I'm too lazy to look it up. I LOVE cornbread and beans. As a child of Appalachia that was our main meals. That and food from our garden---it was great. And I forgot to tell you to beat an egg and brush the pastry with it before you bake them.

Hey Barbara
I grew up in Orange County .ca. about just south of Disneyland and 8 miles from the beach. We ate breakfast, dinner and supper. Funny thing though, when I went to school I had to remember to call it lunch because it confused the other yougins.

Barbara your dinners always sound so good!

Sadly, I am making meatloaf, only sadly because I am tired of making it, but I promised everyone when my dd came home from her trip I would, LOL! So, it is meatloaf, mash potatoes, beet salad, and chocolate organic pudding for dessert!

Nicole the next time you 'have' to make meatloaf think about doing it this way. I treat it like a roast and put potatoes, carrots, onions, and garlic around it and put fresh rosemary sprigs on veggies. Dinner in one pan and since I use aluminum pan no clean up.

Today I'm making carrot/orange All-Bran muffins; zucchini/jalapeno pepper cornbread muffins so it's a nibbling day for me.
