Whats For Dinner Next Week 1-25-15

We had a busy week launching our New Look for The Cottage. Come in and look around, sure hope you like the new look and you can meet my fantastic designer Here.

We just got our onions planted and it started raining that is great timing. It's cold and rainy sounds like a great time to make some awesome soups and homemade breads. I just love making homemade bread it makes the whole house smell warm and cozy. What is you favorite food to cook on a cold and rainy day? I'll make sure to have some of these awesome recipes on our Meal Plan for the week.

Full Plate Thursday Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

Meet My Fantastic Designer
My fantastic designer Elle Ay Esse from Pink Flame Designs made these awesome changes for me. I would love for you to look around and enjoy all the new features that we have installed. I had so much fun working with her, she is such a gifted and talented young woman. Now you know now why I have been so busy, getting this surprise ready for all of you. We have had some beautiful weather here in Texas the last week which let us all get out doors and enjoy some gardening. I am sharing my Sunday Roast with all of you today and sure hope you enjoy our old family recipe. I can't wait to see what you have in your basket today so lets get this party started!

Rosemary Potato Casserole

Rosemary Potato Casserole is a great casserole that can be made with fresh mashed potatoes or left over mashed potatoes. It has a great flavor and is a real comfort dish. I have taken this potato dish to many covered dish functions and don't recall bringing home any left overs. Through the years we have used different herbs and seasons but the rosemary is one our favorites. I am very happy to share one of our favorites with you today and sure hope you enjoy it.

Sunday Roast

When I was a child we would come home from church and the first thing we would smell would be the Sunday Roast. Sometimes the roast would be a pot roast and sometimes it would take on other names, but mainly it was the Sunday Roast. In all those years this was my favorite of all the roast that we would have on Sunday, then we would have sandwiches or hash from the leftovers that night for dinner or the next day for lunch. I still love the Sunday Roast and hope you will enjoy it as well.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 1-18-15

We are busy here at the cottage this week, we have a break in the weather so we are off to the garden. We will be preparing the soil for spring planting and planting our onions. When making my meal plans I am always so grateful for my fresh garden vegetables that I can give my family. My neighbor has some fresh chickens so I will be using some chicken in my meal plan this week. What kind of fresh vegetables do you like to use in the winter months and where to do get them?
