Full Plate Thursday, 694

  Welcome to Full Plate Thursday, 694. I am so happy to welcome you to the party today. Please join me on the garden patio, we can enjoy our party and look at the beautiful wild flower garden and enjoy some fresh vegetables. We have some very talented bloggers that are a part of our blogging community here and I am always so happy to feature their post every week. Be sure and stop by their blogs to check out their great post! Thanks so much for coming to the party today, your visits are always so special to me and others!


Chicken With Broccoli and Rice Casserole

This Chicken With Broccoli and Rice Casserole recipe is a little unusual. Through the years I have learned to save and repurpose every morsel of food that could be saved or used in some way. This casserole is made up with mostly left overs and you would never know that it wasn't made fresh today. In today's economy the food prices are very high and still climbing. I try and help young families with growing their own vegetables, planning the meals and economizing wherever possible. This is a recipe that I made for a study group for young homemakers.

Hello everyone, glad to see you here on the Mothers Day weekend. I have been so blessed to be able to hear from so many of my  friends and family already. My daughter is planning a lovely luncheon for me and her Mother-In Law, it will be so nice. My husband has finished his project of restoring our flagstone patio and it is beautiful, we just love that area of our property. I am checking the weather and reviewing my freezer and pantry inventories. I am about to make some meal plan decisions with some great spring recipes.

  Lemon Surprise Cake is a very easy recipe to make. This is a lemon lovers dream dessert. The cake has a great lemon surprise on the inside and is topped with a creamy marshmallow topping. This is one of those recipes that can be served for a special occasion or a weeknight family meal.

May Food and Recipe Basket: 2024

  May is such busy month with spring in full swing, wild flowers blooming, garden vegetables being harvested and planted. We have a special basket full of fun celebrations where we will find some really great fresh food. The seasonal foods that we will be talking about this month are currently  harvested in our area. Most of the products can be found in Farmers Markets across the area. Our recipes have been handed down though the generations of my family and are linked on this blog.


Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

  Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas recipe is simple and delicious, full of Tex-Mex flavor. This is a perfect busy day recipe when you need something special in the evening.  These Fajitas are tasty and tender enough to take to a great covered dish dinner. Just add a little lime wedge, some cilantro and cheese, and you have a fantastic Chicken Fajita!

Last week while planning our meal plan for the week, I was having a lovely spring morning on my screen porch and enjoying looking through my recipes. This week I am getting a really late start on writing this post. We have been having storms all afternoon and are still under a tornado watch until late tonight. There have been some really bad storms in our area, but thank God we have been spared so far. I am going to finish this post so I can make sure that you get it first thing in the morning.

  My little dog Cody is chasing a squirrel up the tree, the birds are signing and it is a beautiful spring day here at the cottage. They moved the cattle in the pasture across from the cottage today and it is always so peaceful to watch them graze in the pasture. It is great to be sitting on the screen porch again with all my recipes, my food inventory and a cup of coffee. I am ready to get started on this meal plan for the week, and I sure am glad you can join me today.
