The middle of August already, its like the 2 minute warning in the game, just a few weeks of summer before fall is here. There is almost a scramble to get in as many fresh fruits and vegetables while the season is still here. We have some awesome features from last week that I hope you can stop by and say hello to these talented bloggers!  School has already started for some of you and for others it will be in the next two weeks, wow we are all very busy people. I sure appreciate you taking the time to come to the country today to spend time with all of our friends at Full Plate Thursday!

Nana's Squash Casserole

We grow different varies of squash in our garden each summer and I love making fresh casseroles of squash for a meal. I have been making this recipe for years and through those years I have changed it in different ways, but the combination of ingredients that I am sharing with you today is one of my favorites. This Squash Casserole has a very rich creamy inside and a buttery crunchy topping, it is just delicious!

Salsa Pork Chop Skillet

This recipe is for one of those days when you need something fabulous to put on the table and not to long to do it in. Our Salsa Pork Chop Skillet is easy to put together and will be on your table in no time. The great flavor of these chops is seared in and then allowed to simmer with a flavorful salsa. This recipe can feed a large or small family, for supper or dinner which ever the event.

Whats For Dinner Next Week ,8-12-18

We are praying for rain here, when I walk across parts of my grass it is just like powder. We have completely lost parts of our garden we just didn't have enough water to keep it alive. We are heading to the grill and the slow cooker this week and looking for a lot of flavor in the meal plans. I may have to visit a Farmers Market for some of my vegetables, but we have a great market near by. I am headed out to take the inventories of garden vegetables, freezer foods so we can get started with out meal plans.

Melon Salad with Basil Dressing

We really enjoy our melon's in the summer time. There is nothing better than a Black Diamond Watermelon form central Texas or a Cantaloupe from the valley of Texas. Both of these melons are delicious all on their own but they make a great dish when mixed together. Our Basil made from the fresh Basil in our herb garden make this Melon Salad a very special side dish for any meal.

Old Fashioned Peach Bars

We love peach season and the wonderful recipes that we can create from the delicious peaches. This is a recipe that is made with fresh or frozen peaches so that you can enjoy these tasty treats the year round. We have enjoyed these bars at family gatherings, church pot luck dinners and around our table, they are a delicious treat. The flavor of these bars bring me back to my Grandmothers table when she would bring these bars in to serve at a family dinner, great food memories, I can still see that smile on her face. She loved to cook special treats for her family and friends, and so do I.
