Porketta in the crockpot and mac & cheese. My body didn't know about the time change so it's only 10am and I can smell it already!

Andrea, what is porketta?

Today for lunch/brunch it's bacon, avocado, tomatoes with green chilies sandwich. Lunch/brunch is my big meal of the day. Depending on what time I get up I call it lunch or brunch. lol

Enjoy your camping trip Judith! For dinner tonight, we're having salmon with a Raw Rainbow Pad Thai Salad. It goes well on our hot summer nights down here in the Southern Hemisphere.

Hi ladies, sorry I missed your questions about porketta. It's a boneless pork roast with seasoning on it. I have a seasoning I mix myself that has several herbs & spices - mainly parsley and paprika. Stores sell these and put a lot of pepper on them which I don't like.
I roll the pork roast in the seasoning mix and put it in the crock pot.

Today I made a bakeover. Leftover hamburgers chopped up, carrots, onions, fresh spinach, a can of stewed tomatoes, cheddar cheese, herbs d' provence. It was so good!!

Andrea that sounds so good. Grilled cheese is one of my all-time favorite foods. I made bison chili with red beans and had it over cornbread. Four servings for the freezer. June in Texas is not quite the weather for chili, but Aldi had ground bison, so I ordered a pkg.

This morning I cooked a pot of red beans with fresh sage, onion, and smoked ham hock. I enjoyed a bowl for lunch. Cornbread would go really good with the beans but it's too hot to turn the oven on. Another reason I'm looking forward to fall and cooler weather, I can use the oven.

I tried one of those impossible pie recipes for dinner last night -- the lasagna one. Since it was meatless Monday I used Impossible Beef (seemed appropriate) and CarbQuick instead of Bisquick. It's kind of like bake-overs. It was ok, good but nothing I would take to a potluck. This is the third time I have used Impossible Beef and DH has't noticed yet.

Last nights dinner was a "Ham & Zucchini Risotto". It makes a big pot full, so plenty of leftovers for lunch today.

1 leek, sliced
1 tsp minced garlic
2 sticks celery, sliced
200g chopped ham
1 1/2 - 2 cups Arborio rice
875ml - 1 L chicken stock
200 - 375ml cream
3 small zucchini, sliced
1 cup frozen peas
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup grated parmesan
freshly ground black pepper

Oil saucepan and cook leek, garlic, celery and ham over a medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until leek is soft.
Add rice and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until rice is coated. Add stock and cream, and bring to the boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until the rice is soft.
Add zucchini and peas, and cook for a further 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir through parsley, parmesan and pepper.

Well, one of the things we've been doing since the advent of Covid and we stopped going to restaurants was to occasionally have movie night dates at home. We had one of our favorites last Saturday night. DH grilled giant cheeseburgers with all the trimmings. I fixed French fries and big honkin' chocolate malts to go with. And, of course, we HAD to wwatch "Grease" to honor Olivia Newton John who passed away last week.

I love that, Jean! We have been cautious since covid began as well and have not been eating out. We do something similar here and will run to the dollar store for movie candies. And during the summer months, we have out door movie night in our back yard and prop up the old project and screen. So much fun to be had at home with a little creativity! Your Malt sounds devine! AND, reminds me of my Daddy, he loved malts. xo

We do that too and we never eat at fast foods but today I didn't get a chance to eat before the doc appt and I was ravenous after so we made the mistake of going to McDonalds. $11. for a hamburger?? ok -- it was a bacon cheeseburger, but come on -- that's just plain ridiculous. And the fries were horrible. Never never again.

Jean, DH and I used to go out every Friday until COVID, now we stay home. We have started cooking together and it has been great fun.

April, the outdoor movies sounds fun!

Judith, I agree, I do not like McDonalds at all and the price does seem high for what you got

I made a bakeover last night. Leftover meatballs, green beans, cherry tomatoes from the garden, onion, sweet pepper, a little spaghetti sauce that I had left over from canning, cheddar cheese. I goofed one time when making the biscuit part, added too much water and decide to pour it over and see what happens. Well, I'm a bit lazy so now that's how I do it. Mix in just enough water to make it pourable. I have a square cast iron pan and it's easier that way. That's what I tell myself anyway. lol

Hi all!
I havenít been on the forum as often as I was, and am happy to see this thread is still going. It has been a really hot summer here, so I have not been cooking a lot of big meals until the humidity broke last week. I have made a lot of delicious grilled chicken salads with things like sweet corn, arugula, tomatoes and cucumbers from the farmers market and my own garden. Last night we had hamburgers made from beef from a local farm, with mushrooms and kale sauteed in olive oil as a side and blue potatoes air fried. Farm to table, literally!

Iíve made lots of squash casseroles lately, too!


Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Venison stew in the instant pot tonight. Lots of no-cook meals in our near future with 111 predicted next week. A good fairy left some very welcome tomatoes, patty pan squash, and red cabbage on the porch.

Hay there. I have to thaw a roast out for tomorrow. I will put that in the crock pot and do ranch work while its cooking. But for tonight I am pulling out frozen shrimp and adding a salad. Too tired to do much else. Hugs.

Made a pot of kale and potato soup this morning. I make it about once a week and have it for a couple of days.
