Chopped Greens and Fruit Salad

We have fresh greens for salad growing in our garden and lettuce tub almost the year round. There are times in the winter when the temperatures dip so low that most of the greens will die,but some make it the year round. I have sometimes had Collard plants that were two and three years old and still producing. I love going to the garden and gathering a bunch of greens, coming in the kitchen and putting a fresh salad together. I had added some of my favorite fruit to this salad along with a nice Vinaigrette for dressing. This is a perfect salad for any season.

Slow Cooker Pinto Bean Stew with Corn Bread Dumplings

Pinto Beans are a staple here at the cottage, they are a regular part of our meal plan. The first time I made this recipe we just fell in love with the flavors and the dumplings on top are a bonus! This is not just a pot of beans, this is a very special dish that you can serve for any week night dinner, a pot luck, or a great game day recipe!

Whats For Dinner Next Week 10-11-15

Hello, come on back to the Herb Garden, I am gathering some herbs to dry before the winter sets in. I love to gather the herbs and tie them in little bundles, hang them upside down and let them dry, then they are ready to go into a lovely dish. There is nothing like fresh fruits and vegetables on the table. My neighbor gave me a big sack of apples and small pumpkins so guess what I have on the menu this week?

Spicy Baked Cabbage

The last few weeks the Farmers Market has had the most beautiful fresh cabbages. I just could not resist coming home with some of those cabbages, we love cabbage, boiled, baked, or in a cole slaw. This is a spicy recipe that makes a great side dish for any meal. We love this dish and I am happy to share it with you today.

Apple Cider Chicken

I have had this recipe on my note cards for sometime and I continued to add to and take away from the notes. Finally it was ready to try and it certainly did not disappoint, I only wish it could have been ready sooner. A trip to the farmers market for fresh apples and vegetables, pick up some chicken breast, now we are ready to go! The blend of these flavors are wonderful and I can't wait to share it with you.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 10-4-15

What a week we have had here at the cottage, I am barely getting this post out to all of you.  My computer had an application crash, so guess what, I have a new computer. Of course there is a learning curve with any new techie toy, so hope you will be patient with me as I try and get this thing figured out. On the bright side, I am looking forward to some wonderful fall food on the menu next week, so lets go to the kitchen sit at the table, have some coffee and visit for a little bit, I need a break.
