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

WOW---now you ladies will be really amazed. Hubby stayed home due to an ice storm. He did all my chores and made chicken soup for supper---the reason---tomorrow is my birthday---I'm 63. He let me sit all day and write my Christmas cards and notes to people---it took all day. I feel like a queen---but just for a day---LOL. Back to the grind tomorrow at my little cleaning job for my grade school spoiled baby friend. It's not easy being mother to someone your own age---LOL. Nancy---we grow winter squash and eat it all winter---it is almost as good as sweet potatoes. I'm glad you're tuned in to how tasty it is. If you are gardening this summer---please try some tasty squash---but there is more tastier kinds than butternut. Check out some seed books.

Hi everyone. I went to my church's Ladies Christmas luncheon last Saturday. One of the sisters brought a sweet potato and butternut squash dish. It was soooo good I asked her how she made it. Basically it was BN squash, onion, sweet potatos, S&P and rosemary. She didn't have exact ingredients measurement. I found a recipe close enough on You Tube and made it last night. I also made salmon with dijon mustard and panko bread crumbs. Hubby loved all of it. It was good but I need to get with my church sister and see if she will give me her full recipe. I didn't realize how tasty squash can be.

Gee Barbara! I wish I had a companion cook in my kitchen!

Tonight I’m making Joanna Gaines’ Perfect Roast Chicken from her Magnolia cookbook. It’s stuffed with lemon, rosemary and thyme all from the garden, and smeared with herbed butter. Baked in a cast iron skillet.

Sara---that lunch sounds so good and much fun. Last night Hubby made a pizza and all I had to do was make the dough. Tonight he is cooking steaks, potatoes, and broccoli. All I had to do was make the bread. It is great fun not having to cook for two days. Back to the work week grind in the morning.

Nicole -- I raised a daughter with milk allergy 45+ years ago when soy was the only available alternative and she didn't like it. It was quite a challenge; reading labels was an absolute necessity as it seemed caseinate was in everything. Heredity probably played a part as almost all the females in the family had the same problem when young, me included. We all grew out of it at some point. There is now a vegan cheese you might try. There are now many non-dairy alternatives, even ice cream made with coconut milk. I made my daughter ice cream with Mocha Mix as a treat for her birthdays.

Nicole my sister and I ate lunch at the Paris Coffee Shop so that's my big meal for the day - the best kind - no cooking or clean up. I had a bacon, tomato, avocado, & cheddar cheese sandwich on wheat bread. I've been cutting back on bread & cheese so a sandwich was a real treat. When you order a sandwich they give you a piece of paper with all their sandwich ingredients on it. You circle what you want on your sandwich. Also indulged in a cup of coffee with heavy cream & sugar. My favorite way to have coffee.

Made a bigol’ pot of curry chicken soup the other day. SO good for chilly weather. We got snow yesterday. I have been baking and baking and baking. Having our yearly CHristmas party this weekend.

Did I mention my daughter is now allergic to dairy? It makes it hard to cook many of the things I used to. She developed this problem last spring. I was allergic to milk as a young girl. I grew out of it after a few years. I hope she does too. I use a lot of almond milk and plant butter to replace, but there is no substitute for cheese.

Dinner will be light the next couple of days due to the marathon of cooking for the weekend. Any good suggestions?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Sara, I love a dinner of just roasted veggies, too. One of my favorites!

Light cooking here since Thanksgiving and had Chinese food one night. I love it, but it makes my fingers swell like nothing else!

Tonight we had homemade turkey burgers in the air fryer on fluffy buns with a side of baked maple beans. Nothing too special, but good, with fresh tomatoes, onions and lettuce.

Thanks Nancy. Roasting veggies is my favorite way of cooking them. Tomorrow leftovers will go into a pot of soup.

Roasting veggies today - green beans, potatoes, turnips, carrots, and head of garlic with fresh rosemary on potatoes & turnips, & parsley on carrots. May or may not have a meat.

Oh I love taboule. I will have to make some soon.

We kept it simple since it is just the two of us in a new place. I cooked a turkey roll in my IP. I followed a you tube video "Cooking with Doug". It turned out awesome. We also had mashed spuds with gravy, corn on the cob, stuffing and pecan pie for dessert.

Hi Sara, OOOO BLT. Haven’t done that in awhile. Sounds like I should add that to the menu next week/.

The last few days I have cooked so much! I made “fried” Chicken tenders in the air fryer the other day. I love that air fryer! They tasted like fried nuggets but they were not. Every time I make them, I get better at it. On the side, we had a big batch of broiled Brussels sprouts, seasoned with Cajun spice. SO good!

I also made little steaks with spicy pepper seasoning in the air fryer. They turned out perfectly. We had taboule on the side, with fresh tomatoes and the last bit of mint from the garden.

Last night, since I was running errands, cleaning house, and baking for today, I made curry chicken salad sandwiches with cranberries and celery on sourdough bread.

TODAY, three of us have been pigging out! For appetizers/lunch we had sausage coins with a Visalia onion sauce, pineapple and the curry chicken salad on crackers with egg nog. Tried the Coconut Egg nog. Sipped both - “real” and “coconut” nog. Hard to tell the difference. Both are good.

For the main meal,we had turkey with fresh sage, homemade cornbread dressing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, carrot soufflé, green beans and green bean casserole, and pumpkin and apple pies.

Had round two already.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! What was on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

BLT’s with some of the last slicing tomatoes of the year. Then off to the local high school playoff football game.

I’m also fishing for recipes for turnips and their greens. Any tips from you southerners?
texdane Posted - Nov 22 2019 : 11:46:41 AM
I have made it with both chicken and turkey. It is still good. I had beef on hand.

Quick and easy last night: Mashed boiled egg sandwiches on organic sour dough bread, made with mayo. SOOO simple and delish!

Trying anew recipe tonight; Hawaiian Pork Roast with Pineapple. On the side, I am making roasted sweet potatoes and Sunshine carrots, using mult-colored carrots

What is on your table?

Nancy to up the beef flavor you can add mushrooms and Worcestershire sauce. I'm cooking a chuck roast this morning and I used 1/2 pint of my home canned mushroom broth for the braising liquid.

Sara and Nicole,
That's sounds so easy and tasty. Have you ever made it with ground chicken or turkey? I know it may taste different.

Tonight we are having IP spaghetti and garlic bread. I am using ground chicken. Hubby says it isn't the same as ground beef spaghetti but it is still tasty and good.

Nicole! That sounds a lot like a recipe I make called Texas skillet melt, only you smother it with grated cheese and serve with tortilla chips. It’s a family favorite.

Quick and easy? How about grilled sandwiches with some unusual ingredient to elevate them. Like apple slices with cheddar cheese. Or something pickled in them. I guess it depends on what you have on hand.

I made a slaw the other night with a honey/ mustard dressing. I didn’t have many veggie choices to make it interesting beyond the cabbage and carrots, so I chopped up some peperoncinis and tossed them in and it was a big hit! It carried the meal alongside a simple cut of meat.
texdane Posted - Nov 21 2019 : 09:37:26 AM
Sara,

Sure! Take a pound or so of ground beef. Brown in the skillet (I use a cast iron one). Add one chopped onion, one green or red sweet pepper, and brown together. Add one can of stewed diced tomatoes, one can of kidney beans (do not drain either). Add a couple of dashes of Tabasco sauce, salt and pepper and garlic powder to taste, and simmer about 1/2 hour. Serve over hot cooked rice. Enjoy! ;)

Tonight I am not sure yet what to whip up. Ideas for quick and easy tonight?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Makin’ Texas food tonight - “Texas Rice and Beans” with peppers, ground beef and tomatoes. YUM

OHHHH Laurie, I miss homemade tamales from Texas!!! No one here knows what they are, lol! My sister in law makes tamales. She makes an El Salvadoran recipe and they are so good. She has overnighted me some before.

It took me a good three weeks to be on the mend! I have made some good winter stew, and used the air fryer a lot. Will make meat balls this week and report. I made a lasagna for my dh and me when dd went out with her boyfriend. She is having issues with dairy so I have had to adjust my cooking when she is home.

Bought my turkey for Thanksgiving. Can’t wait. Just the three of us but I will still cook a feast. Yesterday I made a meatloaf with creamed corn and boiled new potatoes. Needed comfort food as dd had had a hard school day.

Tonight we had pulled pork sandwiches with rosemary fries. They were frozen organic ones but in the air fryer they were perfect!!

Missed you all. Thanks for the recipe!


Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole
