Whats For Dinner Next Week, 8-16-20

Meal planning early today, it is 7:00 am and already 82 degrees on the screen porch. The little birds are really busy getting seeds from the feeder and bathing in the bird bath, I just love watching them. Our garden is just about done for the summer season, not much survives in this heat that will be well over 100 degrees by this afternoon. It may be time to head to the lake for a cool dip and catch a few fish for dinner, we will see what I can catch, sometimes it even gets to hot for the fish.


Full Plate Thursday,497

Welcome to Full Plate Thursday, it is always so good to see you here. We have been celebrating here at the cottage, my husband is Covid Free and was able to go back to work this week. He was so excited to be able to put all this behind him and move forward. We want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers during the 28 days that we were quarantined with his Covid 19 virus. Thank you God I did not get the virus; I am so grateful! We have some great features here today from last week’s party and hope that you will stop by these talented bloggers to say hi! I can't wait to see what you are bringing to the party today so let’s get this party started!


16 Favorite Peach Recipes

I always look forward to peach season and all the wonderful peach recipes to use with fresh peaches. I grew up going to the peach orchard with my Grandmother and standing in a chair next to her in the kitchen while she created the most delicious peach recipes. Some of those same recipes are still some of our favorites today and we are including them in our collection of peach recipes today.


Easy French Toast Recipe

We just love French Toast here at the cottage, but we don't always have a lot of prep time to make it. I really like this recipe because it has a custard base that is very rich and delicious. You and your family will be sitting down to enjoy this French Toast in a short time. We always try to garnish with fruit in season to give it a very special topping. For a quick breakfast or a weekend brunch this is a great recipe to try for French Toast.

Making meal plans this week with a little more spice because we don't have to be so careful about my husbands diet, he is Covid free at last!!We are still celebrating here at the cottage he finally got a negative Covid 19 test and will be returning to work next week. We are so grateful that he never did have to go to the hospital and although it took him 4 weeks to heal, he finally did. We want to thank all of you for your positive thoughts and prayers these last 4 weeks, we really appreciate all of you!

I can't wait to see what you will be bringing to the party today, we always look forward to see you at the party!


Old Fashioned Peach Crisp

When I was a young girl I remember going to the orchard with my Grandmother to gather fresh peaches. I still remember the wonderful fresh smell of the peaches  as we would gather them into the basket. Then back in my Grandmothers kitchen she would make the most delicious peach crisp, oh my goodness the smell of that crisp. Then that first bite of crisp just out of the oven, my Granmother would pour a little fresh cream from the morning's milking onto the crisp. Thinking back on it now, it was a little piece of heaven. This is the recipe that has been passed down to me through the years and although it didn't come out of my Grandmothers wood burning stove, it is still a delicious recipe!


Lemon Chicken & Veggie Kabobs

Lemon Chicken & Veggie Kabobs is a very special grilling recipe that we really enjoy preparing at the cottage. It is almost the entire meal right here on these skewers. We have a great marinate for the chicken and one for the veggies that makes this combination such a special flavor. One fun thing about preparing a ka bob is that whatever you have on hand will work, because it will taste amazing! This is a great recipe that we sure hope you enjoy!


Whats For Dinner Next Week, 8-2-20

It's August and time to look for a cool spot to get out of the heat, just sit in the shade and sip some sweet tea. We still have some garden vegetables that will harvest, but the harvest is slowing down as the heat will just be to much for the vegetables. I always think of my Grandmother when planning meals this time of the year. She would have great fresh vegetables on the table for every meal. We are still working hard to preserve as much of our harvest as is possible, and those vegetables taste really good when the snow is on the ground in the winter.
