Group active since Wed, Sep 26, 2012
Have you ever heard that phrase? I put everything in this but the "kitchen sink." I've heard this so much growing up when aunts and my mom were swapping recipes! So this group is for those that would like to share those recipes and ideas that you just add to and mix up because you want to do it that way...you know who you are!! Please feel free to share anything that's on your mind besides recipes such as stories, jokes, creative ideas, in other words a little this and that that our group would enjoy. Hope this is a fun site and don't forget to throw in everything but the kitchen sink!
Look what my husband brought home yesterday. He had gone out to our friends' farm, to help repair a few things that were damaged by the most recent storm and came home with two bags of freshly picked veggies. Those folks are always so generous, and always have the most beautiful vegetables! We are very grateful.
I, of course, immediately made a squash casserole.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas with your families and friends. I know you all did a lot of holiday cooking so I can't wait to get some new recipes! Do any of you have any New Year's traditions that you would like to share? We would love to hear about them and please include some of those good recipes.
If you want to try a different flavor to your fall and winter soups/stews... try this. Roast your garlic, onions, mushrooms(try the portabella is is great for grilling, I like to grill them whole for sandwiches..oh yummy.), bell peppers, hot peppers, corn and what you think would be a good addition to your soups.. experiment.
After washing, and draining them I like to either drizzle a small amount of plain oil or a seasoned oil.. I like to add a touch of salt and lots of black pepper. If your making a Italian based soup I would drizzle an Italian dressing over them. Let your imagination go wild.. try a few things at a time then at more each new batch to see what you and your family enjoys. Hope this fires up the taste buds to do something new. Enjoy!!!
Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
It's a lot easier to get men and children to eat vegetables if they are A) covered in sauce and B) covered in bread and cheese. So what did I do? I put every vegetable I had in this pot pie casserole. Hope you like it!
This morning on this beautiful day in south Alabama I was throwing things in my compost that my son created for me (I just love that thing)and my little dachsunds were following along behind me which is pretty normal around my house. Because I'm a early riser, I was up around 6:30 A.M. this may not be so early for some of you. However, walking along I looked down on my driveway and saw this little thing that looked like a snake. I thought ok since we just killed a baby ground rattler under my my husbands truck then this is a sibling. So I went inside and woke my husband up. He came out to kill the snake. He looked at me and said you got me up to kill a earthworm?" So do you think I will ever live this one down? I sure hope he doesn't tell our sons about this story!
