Whats For Dinner Next Week, 9-23-18

Hello everyone, hope that you are having a great week and are ready to make your meal plan for the week. I have been recently mentoring a working Mom on meal plans for her family, when she found meals were unplanned, and the dinner hour being moved later and later. Meal planning will enable her to know exactly what will be served every night and what time it can be on the table. I am grateful that I can pass this information on to someone else to help them enjoy a better quality of life.

Full Plate Thursday, 398

Welcome To Full Plate Thursday!

I know it is supposed to be fall but our temperatures lately are more like summer. I had a garden helper with me in the garden this week to help clean out some none producing plants and it felt like August had never left. All of those temperatures don't keep us from starting to really enjoy our fall foods. I see more and more pumpkin and apple recipes appearing and mercy I love them all! We have some great features today and I sure hope you will stop by their awesome blogs and say hello! I hope to see you at the party later today and thanks so much for stopping by!

Southern Potato & Sausage Gravy With Buttermilk Biscuits

I have watched my Mother, Grandmother and other family members make this dish for breakfast, lunch or supper, and for me, I will eat it anytime, it is just that good. It is served on a fluffy hot biscuit or a crisp slice of toasted bread and no matter when you have it, this recipe is pure comfort, southern style!

Sloppy Joe Sliders

Sliders are the greatest little sandwiches, that are just enough and not to much. They are great to serve for a big game day crowd, a book club evening, or maybe a friends and family game night. We recently had a gathering with some friends and these little Sloppy Joe Sliders were a great hit. Lots of folks have their very own family recipe for Sloppy Joe's and they are all very similar, but this is our recipe that through the years we have come to love.

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 9-16-18

We had the greatest visit with our family last week while we had a week long celebration for my husbands birthday. So right now the cottage is pretty quiet and gives us a chance to reflect on how special our family visits are and how we treasure the memories. Some of those memories for us are always the food, old and new recipes to form those lifetime memories, just one more reason I am a meal planner, enabling us to have some of the old time favorites and the explore the new recipes.

Slow Cooker Cream of Squash Soup

This is a very special garden to table recipe with the fullness of the harvest. We are taking a couple of varieties of squash, colored peppers, and some other flavors added to make this a delicious garden soup. When I come in from the garden with a basket full of vegetables it is always so much fun to see what we can create and today it was cream of squash soup and to save time, it went in the slow cooker. We have loved this recipe and will be making it over and over!
