Whats For Dinner Next Week 6-25-17

This is about the time of the year when our garden harvest gets into full swing and we start our canning and preserving. We have had a fantastic production from our garden this year because we have had just the right amount of rain, for which we are very grateful. I am planning one of my favorite soups this week and a great salsa that goes with any and everything in the summer. I love our wonderful garden to table meal plans for the summer.

Roasted Potatoes With 7 Season Recipes

We grow most of our own potatoes here in our garden at the cottage. There is nothing better that digging the fresh potatoes and then roasting them in the oven or over the grill with wonderful seasons. Often times I am asked by a reader or a friend to share a great seasoning for roasted potatoes. We have several season mixes that we use for our roasted potatoes and I am sharing some of our favorites with you today.

Retro Strawberry Ice Box Dessert

This was a very popular dessert in the late 50's and early 60's in my circle of friends. It was a favorite at the Bridge Club luncheons, Junior League meetings, back yard bar-b-ques and family dinners. Still to this day one of my friends or a family member will ask about the Strawberry Ice Box Dessert and I am just so happy to make it, because once it is on my dessert plate I can't wait to enjoy this delicious dessert.

The summer temperatures are beginning to edge up and by the first day of summer which is this week we will be looking at temp's of 100 plus. When the temps go up we look for simple meals that don't require a lot of extra prep time. We will be celebrating Fathers Day on Sunday and I am planning a very simple meal for the day that all the guys will really enjoy.

Happy Fathers Day To All The Great Dads!

Fresh Garden Salsa

Every year when we are making our garden plan we make sure that we are planting all the ingredients for our homemade salsa. Salsa is a staple here at the cottage, it is on the table just about every meal. There is always a jar of salsa in the refrigerator and you will find several jars in the canning pantry. The recipe that I am sharing with you today is our Fresh Garden Salsa that we have perfected through the years and is one of our favorites. All of these products are available from a farmers market or a super market the year round, but they are the best from your very own garden.
