Tonight is a pasta toss with arugula, apple chicken sausage, cherry tomatoes, and capers in a balsamic lemon vinagrette. Need lighter fare tonight!

Veggie burgers. I have been baking. So far, rosemary trees, spritz, and chocolate chip cookies.

Anyone else?

I ordered from Brookshires today and it was delivered by 8:30a.m. The eggplant was perfect without blemish or bruise. Made oven fried eggplant with part of it, and eggplant with tomatoes, and my oil preserved roasted mix color bell peppers with the rest. Will have the eggplant mix with pasta. Remember I cook for one so one eggplant goes a long way.

Sara,

Hey farmgirl! Did you get my Xmas card? Not everyone got them, it seems. :(

NIce to see someone on the thread! I love eggplant, too, but not everyone does. I make an eggplant dish with curry once in a while. It has been awhile since I fried up eggplant. I used to make alot of eggplant parmigianna. I should try frying it in the air fryer! I would love to know how you make the oil preserved peppers - would you share that?

I am excited for dinner tonight. I have MaryJane’s Focaccia bread recipe rising as we speak. I am going to try my hand at “bread art”. For dinner, it will be served with home made split pea soup which I am going to start soon.

I will post a pic of the bread when it is done. I have always wanted try bread art! The recipe I am using is from the October/November 2020 issue.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Yes Nicole, I received your beautiful. Thanks!

Roasted Peppers in Oil

Wash, cut in sections, and take seeds out
Roast any bell pepper in oven at 400
After roasting & cooling remove skins

Pack in wide-mouth mason jar (size depends on amount of peppers)
Cover with EVOO by minimum 1/2" to 1".
Place lid & ring and secure.

Store in cool place - for the first couple of days shake jar.
As long as the peppers remain covered with oil they will lasts for several months.

The EVOO can be used in recipes.

The peppers I used today were put up in Nov and were on a shelf out of direct sunlight. They were covered by almost inch of oil and were fine. No discoloration or mold.

My sister's next door neighbor is Mexican and makes tamales for holidays. She shares with Bobbie and Bobbie shares with me. Today it's tamales, my home canned bison chili and black beans with mini avocado.

New Year’s Eve Asian food turned out great. I was really proud of my wonton soup as I did not have a recipe and just made it up and it was super!



On the first, it was a big pot of dried Black Eyed peas in the instant pot. They were so good! No soaking. I really love that thing. Made corn bread on the side, with collard greens as another side dish.

Yesterday we had some chicken burgers with arugula. Wanted to make something light and fast since I have been cooking and baking so much. Tonght my dh got us pizza since we haven’t had it in weeks. We like white pizza with basil. That is popular here. What pizza is popular where you are?

Sara thank you for the roasted peppers in oil recipe. I will try making them this week!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

For lunch it's bison meatloaf, roasted potatoes & carrots, and green beans with tomatoes n/green chilies. Easy and oh, so good. Will freeze part of the leftovers.

Hi Sara,

That is the second person in two days that I heard of using bison. I have never tried it. I see it in stores. Is it “game-y” tasting? I am not a fan of deer meat at all. Does it taste like that?

The last two days we have had greek pastistio. Tonight is sausage and brussels in the cast iron skillet.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole, I can't tell a difference between bison & beef. The bison I buy is 90-10. Here in Paris Aldi only sells ground bison so I don't know if a roast or steak would taste different or have a different texture. Try it you may like it.

Beef roast in the crock pot with onions, potatoes and carrots. Some rosemary sprinkled on top because I almost forgot, I wanted to put it right on the beef. We bought half a cow from a local farmer and it is so good! I used to put onion soup mix on the meat but I am trying to get away from buying that kind of thing. Anyone have some ideas for a replacement to the soup mix? We do love onions :)

Andrea, you can make your own onion mix with dried onions, garlic powder, salt & pepper, and dried herbs of choice. You could also add dried mushrooms. If you dry your own onions, garlic, mushrooms, and herbs you are ready to make the mix.

I also would like to figure out how to make a good dried ranch dip, only because I have a delectable veggie pizza that uses that mix, but don’t buy that kind of thing anymore, either! Sara, great idea.

Your roast sounds so good, Andrea! I love a good roast, and rosemary is my favorite herb. I also like to put a bit of red wine with mine, and season with tarragon.

I made chicken in wine sauce with pasta the other night, and a side of MJF’s foccacia bread, as bread art. It was fabulous! We eat the whole thing so fast! It is hard to stop nibbling on it.

Tonight I made “bowls” with grilled chicken, rice, black beans, salsa, guac, corn, lettuces, and tortilla chips. It was filling and good, something different and used what I had on hand.

What’s on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Nicole, I'm working on the new Farm Kitchen badge and have selected mixes for my choice. Here's a recipe for dry ranch dressing I found on line.

Dry Ranch Dressing Mix

½ cup Buttermilk Powder
1 tablespoon Onion Powder
1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 tablespoon Dried Parsley
1 tablespoon Dried Dill Weed
3 teaspoons Freeze-Dried Chives
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
½ teaspoon Black Pepper

Amazon sells dried buttermilk powder.

Please share your pizza topping recipe.

Sara-you are the best!! Thank you! I will look up my recipe and post it. You will love it. It is a veggie topped pizza but with a mayonaise/dry ranch sauce as opposed to a red sauce. It sounds bizarre but it is so delicous! I have not made it in a long time, but will soon. I especially love it in summer.

Last night’s rice bowls were a bit hit! Tonight was a simpler dinner - baked chicken, sweet potatoes, and a winter slaw with poppyseed dressing.

Thank you Sara, I will try that! I do dehydrate my own garlic and also dry my herbs. Onions - well, they get chopped and put in the freezer. I will have to put the dehydrator to work!

I read somewhere recently that January 23-24 are "National Pie Days". So we should all have pie for dinner on those days, right. Perhaps for dinner tomorrow I'll make a Chicken Pot Pie from scratch and follow it up with either a Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl pie or maybe Lemon Meringue. Of course, if I'm feeling particularly rushed, there's always the quick and easy peasy Bisquick Impossible Pies. How about y'all?

Hi Jean, that is so funny because I was going to make chicken pot pie tonight! However, we ate chicken last night (chicken fried rice), and it is 12 degrees tonight, so I went with chili and cornbread. I made chocolate chip cookies for dessert. So, saving pie day for Sunday. Tomorrow will be the chicken pot pie, seasoned with tarragon. Do you have a good Chocolate Peanut Butter swirl pie recipe you would share?

Easy does it soup today. Bison chili out of the freezer; my home canned black beans; with mushroom chicken broth that I made yesterday when I cooked Annie's chicken thighs. Let it simmer for over an hour. Very good - had it for breakfast.

Hahahaha . . . Nicole, I'm almost embarrassed to tell you about this pie (one of our favs). Use a premade chocolate cookie pie crust. One large package of chocolate pudding made according to package directions. Pour it into the pie crust and swirl a couple of spoonsful of peanut butter through the hot filling. Add whipped cream topping. Doesn't get much simpler than that. But oh, so yummy -- Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in a pie. Yum yum!!

I cheated today. Stopped at a local ice cream place that is closed for the season. They have a freezer outside with glass door. They sell home made soup by the quart. I think they had 8 different kinds. They have a cash box attached to the wall and each container has the price on it. Stuffed pepper soup was so good! Cold and busy day today so I just didn't have the energy!

VALENTINES DAY DINNER
I know it's silly, but ever since my kids were little I have had a "traditional" Valentines Day dinner. I make a heart shaped meatloaf and write my message on top with catsup. This is accompanied by pink mashed potatoes and jello salad made in a heart mold. I don't have heart shaped cake pan, but dinner finishes with a pink Valentine decorated cake. LOL Typical Italian Mama approach == good food equals love.
hugs and Happy Valentines Day,
jean
