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

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?

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!

Hubs made danish food tonight. Very warm and comforting with beef and veggies in broth over mashed potatoes.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

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!

Nicole

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.

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.

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

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.

Anyone else?

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?

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?

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!!!

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?

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?
