We had stuffed peppers last night so now I have to figure out what to do with the other half pound of venison burger for tonight. My mind is blank -- must be the heat.

Fresh okra, tomato, brown rice, andouille sausage gumbo. Like my friends in neighboring state of Louisiana like to say "let the good times roll".

I got some CarbQuick to try out so last night we had Impossible seafood pie with imitation crab. It was good. It may be low carb but it sure isn't low fat.

Well ladies---I must say I always read what you are cooking. My meals have been too bland to talk about. But yesterday we decided on a garden fresh feast---all picked fresh. We had green beans with freshly dug purple potatoes. fresh cole slaw and cherry tomatoes and fresh oyster mushrooms off of a huge dead oak tree, plus a hamburger. Add a couple bottles of dollar store wine and we were in hillbilly heaven. Life is good.

Hi Ladies, I am sorry. I have not been online here for awhile...happy to be back. Sara, Oh Gumbo! I haven’t had that in 20 plus years...

Tonight I am taking brussels sprouts, and pan searing them in the cast iron skillet with onion, smoked ham (you can also use bacon), garlic, olive oil and herbs (tonight I will use greek seasoning, I think). Saute until the brussels are tender and it is divine! DD loves it so much. Made us some for lunch a few weeks ago. On the side, I am going to do a tomato/onion/cuke salad in a balsamic dressing.



What’s on your table?

Missed you all.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Hi Farmgirls!

I have been away (I realize since I lost a very old, dear friend to cancer the last week I was on the forum. Just wasn’t feeling very “chatty”.)

Anyway...been cooking up a storm! I have been making a lot of “snack muffins” - oatmeal low sugar muffins that I have been throwing sprouted pumpkin seeds and cranberries into), and lots of good meals. Last night, I made homemade turkey burgers - I diced onions, garlic, red pepper and olives and threw it in ground turkey with salt, pepper, and worcestershire. Cooked 20 minutes in the air fryer - OH MY! Juicy and savory! So easy and fast, too.

Tonight I am trying a new recipe - Thai Peanut chicken. Will put over rice. Love my instapot for that! I am also going to try to make up a recipe to do a “dairy free” pumpkin pie. Will try that and let you know how it goes (DD can not eat dairy anymore).

What is on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Hi Nicole---I understand why you were away. I lost my best friend six years ago and I still miss her. I have been to so many funerals---my whole family is gone and I only have two cousins left to attend----my hubby has lost very few people and he does not understand the pain of it all. Anyway---glad you are back. Today we are smoking a venison roast in our home made smoker---we will have winter squash. greens and potatoes and we found a hen of the woods mushroom to cook with it. Our friend looks for hen of the woods too and he doesn't know it is on a huge oak tree that he drives by---sure not telling. I often wonder what people would think if they saw us getting something to eat off of an oak tree root---LOL. anyway our redneck friend said we have the best hillbilly smoker he has ever seen. What a contraption---made out of an old wood furnace and it is crazy looking----glad it is out back and no one can see it. Sara---what is a hobo dinner,??? Do you just mix up what you have or what?

Hi Barbara, good to hear from you. Hobo suppers are single servings of a meat and vegetables wrapped in aluminum foil. Cook at 350 till done. Time will depend on type of meat, choice of veggies, and how many foil packets. Usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours in my oven with a full cookie sheet of Hobo suppers.

Sara---do you have to cook the meat first? I have missed talking to all of you---but I was so sick for a while---hurt my leg hiking---my ears blocked up and I could barely hear and then my neck locked up---so much misery---feeling better now. Health is Wealth as my old friend used to say, Asking about the meat being done because I have a fear of raw meat----can't stand to look at it. But this would be great for when I don't have time to cook.

Barbara, everything is raw/fresh. I did use whole frozen green beans and they were so good. Like you I don't like the idea of meat not being done so that's why I cook it at 350 for an hour or more.

Thanks---I will try. My husband was a meat cutter at Walmart and it just gave me the heebie---jeebies. LOL> I will brown it first ---I think. When I was a child my family killed chickens and rabbits and squirrels ---and I would see them soaking---YUCK!!!!---anyway the cooked product was good---but they had to make me eat it---LOL. And because I hated butchers my friends in college teased me that I would marry one---and I did. Anyway---will try this, Sounds like a winner to me.

Sara - we love hobo suppers - do you put them on the grill? We usually do that, and with beef or chicken. I have to try pork. I have never frozen them before. Do you tthaw before cooking them?
Barbara, so sorry to hear you have been feeling unwell. Glad you are on the mend. Love the story about you marrying a butcher!!! And I would love to know how you made your smoker!

So last night’s new recipe was a hit. Will make again. Tonight is turkey burgers and sauteed greens. For dessert I can not wait to try the pumpkin pie I made. Tried to make it dairy free of DD. It is chilling now and looks like it will be good. I will let you know.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole I cook them on a cookie sheet in the oven and then freeze after cooling. To serve it's straight from freezer to oven - may or maynot preheat the oven.

For Halloween, I made roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin chili and pumpkin pie, lol!!! We ate the rest last night. Tonight is bolognese with a brussel sprout/kale salad, and homemade pesto that I made from the last of the basil.

What’s on your table?

Ugh! Hubs and I were craving lasagna. Got everything ready to go with the water boiling. Then I went digging though the fridge and freezer - NO cheese! Don’t you hate when that happens? So instead, I whipped up a version of Swedish meatballs instead. I made little meatlballs with the beef using bread crumbs, nutmeg, and egg and put them in the air fryer, through some potatoes on to boil, and then made a sauce with fresh mushrooms, cream of mushroom soup, fresh parsley, better than boulion, and greek yogurt. Turned out tasty.

Tonight is grilled chicken sandwiches on kaiser rolls. For the side, I will cut up some sweet potatoes and carrots and roast them.

What’s on your table?

Honeyed Harvest Chicken Salad with home canned chicken breast, dried cranberries, toasted pecans, celery and red onion in a honey and mustard mayo dressing on toasted multigrain bread.. Oh my.. Autumn in a sandwich! I usually chop apples into it, but totally forgot. You can also use chopped pears, if you like. But even without - YUM!!!

We got alot of snow last night! I am making a big pot of baked potato soup - rib sticking for a cold evening. On the side, crusty, buttery bread and a nice salad of mixed greens, chopped kale and brussels, cranberries, and onions.

What’s on your table? Any new recipes and ideas?

The other night we had sloppy joes with turkey. I use tomato paste instead of sauce. It makes a heartier filling. I make it all home made, no powders or canned mixes. Fluffy buns and roasted potatoes and carrots on the side.

Last night I made two soups - veggie, and a cream of butternut squash. I thought we would have lots left! There is very little of the veggie and none of the other. Served with hot rolls and butter! Tonight DH is grilling steak outside on the bar be que while it snows, lol. We are having baked beans on the side with veggies. Aebiskiver for dessert...YUM!

What’s on your table?
