Whats For Dinner Next Week, 6-17-18


Its Fathers Day Weekend and the guys get to pick the menu, that may be scary could be we end up with 3 starches or an all carb meal or maybe with my husband it would be just pie and Blue Bell. We will have to wait and see what they end up with, (help)! I have started to do a little canning as we are having a big tomato harvest this year. It is going to be fun planning the meal plans for this week. What will you be making your guys this weekend?

Peach Hand Pies


I spent a lot of time with my Grandparents on their farm when I was a young person, and one of the wonderful memories I have is going to the peach orchard with my family and picking peaches. My Grandmother would make many different recipes from the peaches but one of my favorites was her hand pies, or her Fried Peach Pie. This recipe is very close to my Grandmothers recipe, but my pies are not fried, they are baked. They could easily be fried but we enjoy them baked and the spice mix for this pie will have you asking for seconds!

Whats For Dinner Next Week 6-10-18


We are having a little morning shower and that means we don't have to water the garden today. I was in the garden earlier to check what will be available for my meal plan, it started raining so I have retreated to the screen porch to write my meal plans for the week. I will be including some great fruits and vegetables on the plan this week. Looks like we will need to include a nice indoor meal for a rainy day. Meal planning sure makes my life easier and helps to keep our family organized.

Cobb Salad With Grilled Chicken

I love a cob salad, and when you add some very flavorful chicken it is a delicious meal. I use my Orange Chili Chicken with this Cobb Salad which adds great flavor to this salad mix. It is so nice to go out to the garden and bring back fresh vegetables to go into a great salad, then we are topping this salad with our delicious House Buttermilk Dressing.

Grilled Orange Chili Chicken With Salsa

Heading out to the grill with this fantastic Orange Chili Chicken, this recipe is delicious! Not only is there a great flavor in the chicken but there is a very special salsa that we top the chicken with. This recipe is a combination of tropical and Mexican that comes together for fabulous flavor. I have served this recipe to guest a couple of times, I promised them the recipe, hope you enjoy!

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 6-3-18

I am taking a break sitting on the porch and sipping sweet tea, while I work on this meal plan. It is good to sit down for a bit, we are harvesting onions from the garden today and it is quiet a process. We pull the onions, then clean them, than hang them in the barn to dry and then we will use them. I rarely have to buy onions from the market. With all the fresh vegetables available right now it sure is easy to make a meal plan, I just love the vegetables.
