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

Been awhile since I have been on here. Today it's 4 bean soup with bacon and fire roasted tomatoes. I'm using 4 pints of my canned dried beans - Christmas Lima; navy beans; Lila; and Capella. May make cornbread and then I may not.

White bean chili sounds yummy. My favorite chili is made with ground turkey. Another favorite when my kids were little was hamburger, canned tomatoes, canned corn, canned beans, cans of olives and tomato sauce, simmered in the fry pan and thickened with cornmeal. They named it slop. It was kind of like a tamale pie.

I made chicken white bean chili from a bit of leftover chicken, canned turkey broth, canned white beans, and canned tomatoes. Plus plenty of spice!
Also added a bit of gluten free rice pasta that was lurking in the pantry.
Going into homesteading mode. LOL.
BTW, it was delicious.
Judith, you brought back memories. We used to eat canned tamales, and it was always a treat! Not very often, but when we did I was so delighted; I used to love peeling off the paper that separated each one.

Nicole,, I luv Pea soup,, especially with a shot of sherry mixed, and a dollop of sour cream on top...
Oh Yum!

Judith, that sounds delish! I love a good casserole. Casseroles have always been a favorite of mine. Love to try new ones.

We have had corned beef several times now. I am done with that. We had the last part of it for lunch - hubs threw it on the grill and it was delicious! Making green pea soup tonight. It is cold here today after a snap of warm. We even woke up to a dusting of snow. Last of the season I think.

Everyone is cooking more now. We are all home as schools and work are closed. I love to cook so it is my norm, lol! What’s on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

StitchinWitch Posted - Mar 07 2020 : 2:57:20 PM
Sara -- it's super easy as long as you can operate a can opener. Two cans of tamales broken in pieces in the bottom of the casserole dish. You can use real tamales but we never have any leftover. A big handful or two of cooked chicken in bite sized pieces on top of the tamales. Mix one bottle of chili sauce, one can of corn, and a can of olives and pour over the top. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over all and bake for about 45 minutes at 350.
It's one of those recipes I keep the ingredients for as it's quick to make if you get unexpected company.

Judith, casseroles are always good to take to funerals. Your's sounds interesting - what goes in it?

My sister dropped off several slices of grilled bologna that her grandson made. If you never had the good fortune of eating grilled bologna well all I can say is bless your heart. It is so good. Thinking about making mac n/ cheese tomorrow to go with it.

I needed to make a dish for a funeral so I made my chicken and tamale casserole knowing there would probably be some leftover as it makes a lot. I love it but seldom make it anymore as it just makes too much for just the two of us. There was just enough leftover for dinner.

Sara, I have been marking recipes in the Texas slow cooker cookbook you sent me while ago. I want to try them in my Instant pot slow cooker mode and see how they turn out.

I have been making nice dinners lately. Spring is in the air, and we got some warm days, but it is cool again though sunny. I made some split pea soup that was to die for with homemade croutons, and yesterday was “MaryJanes Budget Mix Day”. First I made yummy pancakes for dd and me for breakfast with maple syrup, using Budget Mix. Then we had chicken and dumplings last night, using MJ’s recipe. It is the best ever! I love Budget Mix, I have a big bulk bag that I freeze and use a bit at a time in a jar in the kitchen. Almost to the bottom. Love the convenience and that it is organic.

Tonight, I am toying with what I am in the mood for. Any good ideas?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Almost every Sunday, my husband wants homemade tomato sauce, meatballs and macaroni. You would think he was Italian and not Swedish. LOL

Nicole all your dinners sound wonderful.

This morning I made butternut squash soup with a recipe in my "High on the Hog" cookbook compiled by the Durning House B&B in Van Alstyne, TX. Food and cookbooks can take me down memory lane so this morning memories of the luncheons I attended at the Durning House B&B Restaurant have flooded my mind. I first met the owners, Brenda & Sherry, forty years ago before the vintage house became a B&B and it was an antique shop. Brenda passed a couple of years ago and Sherry last month. The Durning House is now closed but I'm sure women all over north central Texas have fond memories of lunch at the Durning House.

The soup was fantastic and worthy of being served in my vintage French soup bowl I found in a antique shop in Bonham, TX - here I go down memory lane again. The recipe called for a dollop of sour cream but I didn't have any so I used yogurt and liked it. Another substitution I made was it called for curry powder so I used MJF Eastern blend which proved to be a good choice.

Hi Nini! Okay, first off, you have me at “Gyro Burgers” - do tell! How do you make them? I am part Greek and that dinner sounds divine! Funny that I am not the only one who “hides” the ice cream in the downstairs freezer!

This past week, we have had my white bean turkey chili, chicken in wine sauce (family favorite), Danish Pork Meatballs in Curry sauce with a side of pickled red cabbage, and eggs, kale, tomatoes and arugula sandwiches with fresh roasted potatoes on the side. Tonight I am making something in the Instant Pot. I also have a whole chicken to make in the air fryer rotisserie this weekend.

What is on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Oh.. and Nicole...our local dairy had its January "white sale" last month... buy any half gallon and get a free quart of vanilla. We stocked up last week. I told my hubby it had to last, and that just because we have it doesn't mean he has to consume it, and that a few special occasions were coming up, so pleeeease don`t go crazy behind my back. On more deaf ears could my words not have fallen. I shoulda just made a batch of cookies... I don't know when he finds time, but I went to get meat out of the freezer yesterday... Two half gallons down! Lol. He is KILLING me with this sweet tooth!! Oh, well... as long as he is happy!

Tonight I'm making gyro burgers and serving with a Greek salad with lemon dressing. Yum! I cannot WAIT for dinner! Our favorite Greek restaurant closed a couple of years ago due to a landslide on their property... MAN do I miss their gyros! But my guys agree, tho, these burgers are a pretty nice alternative!

Nicole - tell us more about that prohibition dinner! Somehow I missed that! Must have been a blast!!!

Hi Girls!

Okay, so I am a big vintage kitchen lover, and don’t fall for a lot of new fangled gadgets...but I went to a potluck about a week ago at a neighbor’s house. All of the ladies were raving over the “Instant Pot”. Told DH about it, and we went online. Got the prettiest one (Pioneer Woman model) with vintage flowers on it from Walmart on CLEARANCE with free shipping. Okay, so I have used it several times and now LOVE it!

SO far, my favorite dish was the Better than takeout Chicken Fried Rice. Picky teenager daughter ate THREE helpings! I wanted to upload a photo but can’t get it to work right now. So much healthier and tastier than the take out kind!

I made yummy air fried chicken on Friday, with a side of creamy (non dairy, low fat) mashed potatoes, and a Broccoli, cranberry, and apple slaw with a maple syrup vinegrette. SO yummy and I made enough for two days.

Tonight I think I am making white bean turkey chili again, as it is a request.

What’s on your plate?

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!!! ;)

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.
