Hi Farmgirls!

MMMmmmm, mmmm. I am making one of my favorite meals for my dd and dh tonight. Homemade Texas chili, served with fresh buttermilk cornbread baking in my cast iron skillet. Will top the chili off with cheese and sour cream, and wash it all down with fresh-brewed ice tea! It's a chilly night out, so it's a "chili" night in! Wishing I had a kitchen-full of farmgirls to share it with!

Does anyone else have anything yummy you're cooking up tonight?

Farmgirl Hugs,

Nicole

Tonight we had good old fashioned burgers with lettuce, tomato and onion, and homemade oven fries. Sometimes you just get a hankerin', you know?

Tomorrow it's going to be homemade spinach pies (calzone style). SO good!

Oh my gosh, Nicole... I haven't made chocolate chip cookies in a month of Sundays! I didn't even get to make Christmas cookies this year! WEIRD. And such a bummer... no "little somethin' somethin' to nosh on after the holidays! Maybe I'll make chocolate chip cookies for the guys for Valentine's Day this year! Thanks for the inspiration! Now I'm craving them... Oh my poor hips!!! ;)

Hugs -

Yesterday it was a very cold and snowy day. I made chicken and dumplings for supper. Our 26 yr old grandson is laid off until Spring thaw. He was traveling from parents to grandparents to visit. He said his other grandmother was making chicken and dumplings too. He decided to make the same for supper. We had a wonderful and messy time as he learned to make his great grandmother's noodle recipe. I also gave him her dumpling recipe. He took the noodles he made home for his own dinner. I'll bet his wife was happy. He is usually the cook for their family. We will have left overs tonight.

Grace, I hear ya! I baked chocolate chip cookies this past Saturday...they are almost all GONE. (Insert doe-eyed shocked look here, lol). It has been very cold and snowy so I have wanted to cook and bake. Tonight I am making a shepherd’s pie for my hubby. He will be so happy when he gets home from work. It is one of his favorites. I will brown ground beef (which technically makes it “Potters Pie”, via my UK friends). I will season it and make a light gravy from beef broth. I use onion, chopped fresh tomatoes, frozen peas, and sage to season, topping with mashed potatoes and a bit of cheddar on top. So yummy and warm on a cold day!

Grace, how do you make your German Potato salad? I have a recipe for one but haven’t made it in eons!


What’s on your table?

OOOOO chicken parm. I have not had that in ages, Nini!

Judith, I hear ya. May need to do that soon!

Tonight is a snowstorm. I made a yummy pepper steak in the Dutch oven. It is strips off cube steak, tomatoes, peppers, onions, soy sauce, ginger, and spices over rice. Salad with greens and fruit on the side. I made homemade chicken tenders in the air fryer for my dd since she isn’t able to eat beef these days. For dessert, dd and I baked chocolate chip cookies.

Yesterday we attended a “Prohibition Pary” at a local restaurant. The menu was special, from the 20’s (1920’s). We had filet minion on toast topped with Gorgonzola as an appetizer, lemon chicken, and for dessert lava cake. People were dressed up like the 1920s.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

BTW happy belated birthday, Barbara! I think I missed saying that last page. Also, Nancy, were you able to get the recipe for the squash and sweet potato casserole? Would love to try it.

Last night was back to cold after a wonderful warm snap. Had a friend and her daughter over Saturday night for an evening of sewing.We made soup bowl trivets. For dinner I made chicken and pasta in wine sauce (my dd’s favorite, and my go-to recipe). I also made bread and a nice salad with greens, blueberries, danish-fried onions (a bit, for crunch). Fpr dessert, my friend baked and frosted a layered chocolate cake with white icing, filled with raspberry mousse and some lemon shortbread (all dairy free and sooooo good. For the filling she used raspberry pie filling mixed with dairy free cool-whip).

Last night I made homemade cream of cauliflower soup - so satisfying. I substituted almond milk for the cream and it was just as creamy and good.

WHat’s on your table?

Nicole

Judith I did for a small second serving of only gravy. I do my best not to have seconds but sometimes I give in and do.

Today it's chicken thighs baked in the oven with mushroom yogurt gravy. Gravy made with home canned mushroom broth, store can of mushroom soup, yogurt, and baby portabella mushrooms. Will serve over large egg noodles.

Sara -- I frequently forget to write down my recipes and when I do I forget where I put them. But sometimes what I'm trying to duplicate comes out even better.
We're going up to our trailer in the hills today so I chopped up a bunch of veggies, cooked some beans, put it all in a plastic bag to make a big pot of minestrone soup. That with a loaf of homemade bread and some tapioca pudding will make our dinner.

Made pork chop curry with potatoes, carrot, and onion in sauce/gravy using my curry mixture. Very good. Hope I can duplicate the curry mix because I didn't write down what I did.

It got super cold here again! Makes me want stews, soups, and roasts! Yesterday, I made my Autumn Pork Stew with cranberries, sweet potatoes, apples, and onions. It is seasoned with spicy mustard and butter, and is a family favorite! Tonight I wanted home style classics: I have pot roast, a potato medley of blue, red, yellow potatoes and sweet potatoes (made in the air fryer, waiting for them to finish as I type), a veggie slaw with cabbage, broccoli, carrots, raisins, cranberries, and cauliflower, and southern style collard greens. YUM! I cooked a lot of food, hoping there will be enough for a meal tomorrow, too!

What’s on your table?

Sara, your dinner must have been so satisfying to put together - to know most of it was homegrown and home preserved.

I made chili this morning out of sautéed ground beef with onions from the freezer. All ingredients except for home canned pinto beans were from grocery store. It was easy to put together and all I had to do was stir it now & then while it slow simmered. Dang! I just remembered as I'm writing this I have home canned pumpkin in the pantry and I could have added it like Nicole does. There's always next time.

Judith, I wanted so much to tell everyone I wasn’t cooking last night! But I got over myself and found a recipe for andouille rice and beans which used homemade andouille, home canned tomatoes and tomato sauce, homegrown peppers from the freezer and a jar of home canned kidney beans. It was actually therapeutic for me to match the recipe to what I had stored, and I was no longer grumpy when everyone got home #128513;

Anyway, back to dinner. Tonight we had the leftovers of our New Years day dinner ; pork roast, sauerkraut, black eyes, and collards. Still as good as last night. Having leftovers and not having to cook gave me lots of time today to help get some projects done.

Sara - I believe pheasants were brought here by Chinese during the gold rush era and rapidly adapted. There are several colorful varieties. The recent drought, loss of habitat, hunting, and increase of certain predators has almost wiped them out here. I miss them. I looked at the map and see you are about 90 north of me. I used to drive by Biggs every year when I went on shop hop to quilt shops up in that area.

Sorry ladies, the last few weeks I had a sick teenager, then a sick kitty, and I got sick! Not an ideal Christmas but we made the best of it. Still nice.

ANYWAY, we are having a steak tonight with a side of Black eyed peas for luck. I think a great big green salad with mandarins in it will be good too. Last night we had Chinese takeout, a tradition for us. The other night I made the best dairy-free chicken pot pie, using almond milk with flour, chicken broth and plant butter. It was creamy and delicious, stock full of veggies and chicken. I seasoned it with tarragon. My dd and her bf loved it, and my husband said it tasted better than when made with cream.

As for pheasant, I have never eaten it either. We have been seeing them again in our town, for the first time in years.

What is on your table tonight?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Judith, you and I live on opposite ends of the same valley. I’m pretty sure the truth about our pheasants is that they are not native. They are upland game birds which were introduced to our flat lands.
When I was young there were so many pheasants that had naturalized that you would see a rooster fly across the road nearly every time you drove through rice country. I don’t know if it’s because hunting has become so popular, or our coyote population has increased so much, but it’s been years since I’ve seen a wild one.
My men hunt on “clubs” where they pay for a certain number of birds, those birds are released in the fields ahead of their arrival, and they have the great challenge of walking that check until they and the dogs have scared up and shot each one. Not quite what it used to be, sadly. But a cultural tradition where we live.
YellowRose Posted - Dec 18 2019 : 05:53:13 AM
I haven't had pheasant either. Quail is the only wild fowl I've eaten.

Today it's butternut squash cornbread dressing casserole with pork chops on top.

I have never had pheasant---but hubby has always wanted to try it.

He would love that crockpot meal. He is a great fan of mushrooms.

Sara -- I miss pheasant. We used to have a lot of them around here but I think hunting and creeping surburbanism has eliminated all of them. as I haven't seen one in 10-12 years. I remember one year I made pheasant, mushroom and wild rice casserole for Easter dinner. They're not only good to eat but pretty to look at too.
