I was tempted to get takeout this evening (and I've been doing that too much lately . Instead, I was inspired by this thread to make pasta w/ homemade red sauce & spinach salad.

Homemade Cheesy Potato Chowder -- like potato soup but chock full o' cheese.

Made with organic red potatoes, onions, garlic, butter, raw milk and (raw milk) parmesan cheese.

So yummy, especially in this cold weather.

Serving it with homemade bread from yesterday...a whole wheat maple oat bread.

Tonight:

* Homemade anadama bread (adapted for my bread machine)
* CrockPot raspberry-soy chicken drumsticks
* Frozen vegetable-du-jour*
* Our winter staple: Simple greens salad (local coldframe greens + local hothouse cherry tomatoes, with a drizzle of olive oil & red wine vinegar)


* I cannot wait to try my hand at freezing our own local vegetables this summer. Every time I open a package of Cascadian Farms veggies, I feel soooooo guilty.

Ooh, my mouth is watering!

The meat defrosted in time last night, the beef soup was DELICIOUS! My best batch yet.

Tonight is breakfast-for-dinner at the IL's house. Pancakes with blueberries and Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk (weird family thing...I will have maple syrup, tyvm!) sausage, bacon, the works. Mmm.

How do you store the corn-on-the-cob? : As I just posted above one of the things I'm starting to plan now is how to freeze our local veggies this coming summer to use during winter-spring.

I just vacuum-packed it with my Foodsaver. I can't recall if I blanched it first or not, but probably not, since corn takes so little time to cook anyway.

I did a bunch of green beans from the CSA too, same way. We always freeze loads of berries (don't get them from the CSA, unforunately, but we get them cheap at the height of the season) too, and various other veggies/fruits (peaches, greens, beets, whatever we get too much of in the summer and don't eat!). It's really nice to have summery stuff on hand. Oh, pesto too -- I always make up big big batches of pesto (both Italian and Thai-style peanut pesto) from the CSA basil, and freeze it in meal-sized portions.

HTH!

This thread always makes me so hungry, and inspired! We' were snowed in Sunday and yesterday, so prepping and baking were part of our entertainment!

Sunday: This great cabbage, veggie, pork and barley soup that I've been dying to make, homemade bread and my first pineapple upside down cake made in the cast iron pan. Enough leftovers for lunch all week (for me)

Last night: Sesame Chicken, rice, local frozen peas and homegrown applesauce.

Tonight: Steak, baked potatoes and fixens, spinach salad and homemade blueberry icecream.

Tomorrow: Breakfast for dinner.

It's in the "January what's for dinner" thread, originally posted by Mrs B. Sprout, but basically, to recap, you heat up some kind of oil in a pan (she, and I, used bacon grease) and then put in wedges of cabbage, cover, and cook until they are tender, turning when appropriate. Obviously, you want them to be nice and golden brown on each side.

It was really good. I have a little bit leftover, which I think I am going to chop up and add to a bean soup (which will be tonight's dinner, along with a salad and maybe some homemade rolls if I really feel energetic!).

We're having something with the leftover tilapia I made a few days ago. I haven't figured out what that will be yet though.

Tonight we had "funny noodles." That would be spaghetti tossed with whatever we happen to have around.... tonight it was diced pear tomatoes and cooked broccoli florets with some shredded cheese sprinkled on top. I had the broccoli+tomatoes and some cottage cheese.

OK, here's my pantry-challenged take on a romantic din-din (we are going to go out for V-day but not until next week, probably):

caramelized mustard-rubbed salmon
wild rice pilaf
mashed acorn squash

with no-bake cookie bars and chocolates for dessert!

I may make pink pancakes for the kids, or maybe that'll be lunch.

Last night was chicken nachos. Sooo good, but we used Velveeta and Rotel, so terribly unhealthy.

Tonight is spaghetti, salad, and garlic bread.
