It's Green Chili season here and many of the open air markets are roasting Green Chilies. The smell of the chilies roasting is amazing and the flavor of the chili is one of my favorites. Today we are preparing our Green Chili Chop Steak that is made with our roasted green chilies and topped off with a great Green Chili Sauce. We will be serving our steak with a great Refried Bean Hash making this a very special plate of food.

When I cook a pot of Pinto Beans I know that we will be making more than one meal from those beans. One of the many recipe's that we enjoy is the Refried Bean Hash, this is a great dish that can be used as a delicious side, a crowd pleasing dip and it make's my favorite Bean Burrito, plus a great Tostada.
With all these possibilities today we are making the hash, dip and burrito.

Some of the schools here started the end of last week and the rest will start this coming week. Time to slow down going through those school zones and watch for the little ones in the cross walks. It's time to think about after school treats and kid friendly family suppers. If you are new to meal planning or just thinking about meal planning this is a great time to get started, it will save you time, money.

After over 20 very hot summer days with no rain, it finally rained and we are so grateful for the rain and the cooler temperatures. It renews our interest in cooking when it is not so hot outdoors and our interest to develop new recipes. Summer is starting to wind down now and we are all beginning to transition into fall with wonderful dishes showing up on our tables. I can't wait to see the wonderful recipes that you will be sharing with us today so lets get this party started!

I have been making this Frozen Fruit Salad Pie for so long that my original recipe card is frayed around the edges and very worn. This pie is so easy to put together and we can always have one in the freezer for dessert. It great when someone comes by and I can offer them a nice slice of this pie to go with their coffee or tea. The texture of this pie is so creamy and delicious and just like having a fruit salad in a pie. This is diffidently one of those Retro pies that we love!

We have a bounty of vegetables from our garden right now, great onions, tomatoes and lots of zucchini. We were hungry for a pizza so why not just use some of these awesome vegetables and create a pizza. The caramelized onions with seasoned zucchini and tomatoes make this a very flavorful pizza that we just love and will be making over and over. Take a look at that really used and well seasoned pizza stone, we have made lots of pizza on that stone.

We are coming to the end of the summer garden season and this is the week we will be making our End of Season Soup. Several friends have been asking me lately when are you making the soup, I don't know for sure but I think they will just be dropping by about dinner time on the soup day. When we make the End of Season Soup it's like a celebration of a great summer season that is coming to an end. Lets get started on this meal plan so we can know exactly which day all of this is happening.
