Whats For Dinner Next Week 12-17-17

We had so much fun this week finishing all the preparations for Christmas and now we can sit back and enjoy the rest of the holidays. I often times make meal plans for several weeks ahead especially around busy times like the holidays. I am busy this week baking holiday breads for some of my husbands co workers and some other folks in our community that we have interaction with during the year, of course the best part of that is getting to deliver them. Making my meal plans helps me  have the time to enjoy the season!

Gifts From Miz Helen's Kitchen 2017

All through the year I keep a list of items from the kitchen that some of my friends and family might really enjoy receiving at Christmas time. When I am giving a gift from my kitchen it is really part of me, loving time spent creating a special gift just for you.When I receive a homemade gift, it is so meaningful to me and I really treasure the love and time that goes into the gift.  Since most of you are very far away from me, I am happy to share these gifts with you today!

Whats For Dinner Next Week 12-10-17

We actually had a little bit of snow this week, it didn't last long but it sure put us in the mood for a cozy fire and hot chocolate. It is sure starting to look a lot like Christmas around the cottage as we are putting the finishing touches on our decorating. I am thinking about warm cozy food for the meal plan this week because of the cold weather we are stating to have. I will have to bundle up and make a trip to the barn to see what we have in the cold bin and then stop off at the garden to see what fresh greens I can use. Lets get going so we can have our hot chocolate!

Southern Sweet Potato Pie

This Southern Sweet Potato Pie has been served at our family gatherings since before I was born, and oh my that's a very long time. We grow sweet potatoes in our garden every year so we really enjoy the home grown potatoes for this recipe. Roasting the sweet potatoes enhance this rich and very flavorful  pie making it one of our favorites, from our garden to the table!

December Food & Recipe Basket

Whats In Season and How Can I Use It

Our December Food and Recipe Basket is filled with wonderful fruits, nuts and green vegetables from garden to table. We have lots of pecan groves in our area and lucky for us our neighbor has several pecan trees that they are so sweet to share the nuts with us. A fruit that we enjoy this time of the year is our cranberries, all of which are shipped to our area for the market places. We have several green leafy vegetables that we enjoy during this season which we grow in our garden here at the cottage. Our holiday this month is Christmas and Hanukkah.

December is here and the cottage is very busy. Our meal plans will be important this month to help keep us organized during a busy month. We are putting the final touches on our Christmas decorating for one of my favorite times of the year. The little communities are beginning to have special parades, dinners, festivals, and church services. All the clubs have a special covered dish luncheons and dinners with lovely programs. It is a wonderful and busy time of the year.
