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

Enjoying the wild hog stories---WV too has wild hogs. I never knew it until I was grown. My room mate in college was one of the biggest liars that ever lived and when I would go home with her to an illustrious part of Boone county---my poor holler friend lived on the opposite side of the county. This lying friend lived in the boss camp in an ugly coal mining area and had a nice house---anyway I digress. She told me that we couldn't hike in the woods because the wild hogs were so mean and naturally I thought she was lying and just too lazy to hike. A few years later I read that her county had the largest population of wild hogs. She told the truth for once. Nicole I too like to make pumpkin chili and I always put pumpkin in my winter veggie soups. Cook on Yellow Rose. Wish I could visit and have lunch with you.

California has those hogs around Big Sur and up north too.
Dinner tonight is baby back ribs cooked in the pressure cooker. I sure am loving this InstantPot.

Nancy you are right they are all over the country. Didn't know about them being on Catalina Island. Makes sense though sense hogs can swim and before refrigeration they were on ships for fresh meat.

Slow cooking beef stew meat with brown gravy and onions in the oven. I used my home canned mushroom broth so it will have a hint of mushrooms. Will have it with pappardelle artisan pasta. On top of the stove it's chicken thighs. Annie gets the thighs for the week and I use the broth during the week in my cooking. Homemade broth comes in handy for so many things.

They are also on Catalina Island off the coast of California in the Channel Islands. Years ago I was camping at Two Harbors on the north end under a full moon.

I felt a jerk at the end of my sleeping bag. I sat up quick and saw a large hog close up and personal. I yelled at him to scat and he did. Because of my ignorance I wasn't afraid. I got afraid the next morning when I was told by a local how dangeroys they can be.

Glad I was so ignorant so I didn't do anything stupider but better glad I know better now.

I'm going to take a little sidestep from talking about what's for dinner to a little history on wild hogs. Hogs are not native to the Americas. They were bought into Texas by Spanish explorers in the 1500s. They may have several litters a year with 10 or so babies. Over the last 500 years there numbers have grown into the millions in Texas & La. Through the years they have crossbred with domestic hogs but they are not tame - they are wild and viscous animals.

Oooooh....I remember dealing with the wild hogs inTexas! They used to be on our ranch. You can smell them when they are near! The neighbor at our ranch was hurt by one once. Never ate one though.

I was gifted an “Air Fryer Pro” from my parents. They love theirs so much they thought I would too. I love it! I made chicken tenders, roasted potatoes and little chicken pot pies in it. YUM!

I made pumpkin chili one cold evening. Thursday I made a big pasta toss with rigatoni, the last fresh tomatoes and cakes from the garden, olives, fresh rainbow chard from the garden, onion, peppers, goat cheese, and feta and spinach chicken sausage. I dressed it with olive oil, lemon and balsamic vinegar.

Tonight I am taking a cue from above: chicken and dumplings! YEA!!!

What’s on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Sara -- DH goes hunting in Texas every year. He has lots of family there. The first year he brought home wild hog I was hesitant to eat it -- I was afraid it was going to be like bear, which I didn't like at all. I was so surprised to find I liked it better than supermarket pork. When this man and I got together 28 years ago I was a vegetarian. How times have changed! He does enough hunting that the only meat I buy is chicken and sometimes fish.

Judith, I've had wild hog once. A farmer I knew killed a couple when they got into his wheat field. He Bar-B-Q the ribs and I remember they were leaner than domestic hogs. Each year wild hogs are coming nearer to my sister's farm. They are a real problem here in Texas and do a lot of $$$$ damage to crops.

Venison chili is good but haven't had it in years.

I would love a pot of soup today -- I never get tired of soup, but we've been living on lentil soup then chili the past week so I think I'd better make a "real meal" or DH will revolt. We have a freezer full of venison and wild hog so I'd better use some of that up before he goes hunting agin next month.

It's 45 this morning so it's "clean out the fridge soup". It's simmering away on the stove with a little of this and a little of that. Should be ready in a couple of hours.

Hi Barbara,
I will have to try sour cream. It sounds yummy.

I agree life is good and farmgirls (and farmfellas) rule!

Nancy---I really love beets! so good with sour cream. I have been cooking very little due to heat and no water. But tonight Hubby went out and found a few cherry tomatoes and green peppers in our parched garden. The heat is to go away and this is our last summer cook-out with the dogs. Can hardly wait to eat those tomatoes. Hot dogs too and plenty of treats for the dogs. Life is good in the holler---and this water shortage has shown us we can handle what comes.

Had a craving for beets. Cooked them in my express cooker. Saute'd the greens in olive oil with garlic powder, red pepper flakes and a spritz of lemon juice. Ate the greens for lunch and made an almond coconut milk smoothie with a banana and peaches. Yummy!

Haven't decided what's on the menu for today except for one thing - apple pie with caramel apple walnut sauce. Apple Pie Sunday the one day of the year I bake a pie. This FarmGirl is not a baker. I don't like all the exact measuring - I prefer the handful of this and pinch of that method.

Yellow Rose---I don't have air conditioning and so happy that you do! So hot and no chili for me---although hubbie can't wait for chili, But none for us until it cools down. When it is hot in WV==it is truly hot! Bless you Sara because you are a true wonderful person. Rock on. I guess I was born on hillbilly food---summer veggies and cornbread---we just ate what was in season---a thing I think we should all do. Sara---you are so cool and one of a kind. I looked at your house on Google and it is lovely' You are the BEST!

I thought about chili, too, though it is still unusually hot for Connecticut. I made beans and rice - with onion, Rotel, rice, beans, and green peppers. Will have a nice hot lunch today.

Help girls. I am not in the mood to cook tonight. Need inspiration!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Barbara it's easy - just crank the A/C down. We eat Tex-Mex year round. If your enchiladas have chili on them that's Texas style. If they have tomato or green sauce that's Mexican style. BTW I read your post too.

Sara---how in the world can you eat chili in the heat of Texas and I can't stand the thought of it in The heat of WV. Girl---you do have nerve--- and I can't wait to cook chili. But I am super hot and not amused by chili---LOL. Love you Sara and always read your posts.

It's still hot here in my part of Texas - hi of 91 today - but I'm hungry for chili so my easy as pie chili it is. Out of the freezer pre-cooked and chili seasoned ground chuck. Two jars of home canned dried black beans; 1 chopped onion; masa; garlic powder; more chili powder; tomato paste; store can diced tomatoes; and home canned corncob broth. Simmer for an hour or so.
