Whats For Dinner Next Week, 4-30-23

Hello everyone, hope you are having a great weekend. I try to check the weather before selecting the  recipes that I will be using on the meal plan for that week. Last week we got almost 5 inches of rain, that means I won't be getting into the garden, it is way to muddy. It will be off to the Farmers Market this week for any fresh produce that I need for the meal plans.  We will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Friday, I always look forward to the food that we enjoy for that fun event!

Tex-Mex Chicken Fajita Casserole

  Tex-Mex Chicken Fajita Casserole recipe is one of those recipes that is so versatile. This casserole can be served on hot flour or corn Tortillas, or as a dip with corn Tortillas. Another popular way we have served it is on top of a bed of Spanish rice. It is a very simple recipe to make with just a few simple ingredients. This is a recipe that can serve a family meal or a crowd for game day!

Hello everyone I sure hope you are enjoying this beautiful spring day. I am having my coffee here at the table out on the screen porch this morning, while I make our meal plan for next week. We have been super busy here at the cottage with planting the summer garden and a new puppy. Oh my goodness, my plate seems to be getting mighty full! I am really hungry for some of my favorites and you will most likely see them on  the meal plan this week.

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 4-16-23

  Hello everyone, it is such a beautiful spring day and I am out on the screen porch enjoying every minute of it. Our new puppy Cody is here with me and of course he thinks this is play time, and does not realize that we need to make meal plans for the family. We harvested the remainder of the  winter garden yesterday and had some cabbages and collards that were really nice. We also got a lot of planting done in the garden and it is almost finished planting for this summer garden. We are starting to enjoy some great spring fruits and vegetables at our local farmers market and of course I have to bring some home for us to try.

Old Fashioned Blueberry Crisp

An Old Fashioned Blueberry Crisp is so easy to put together and the flavor is always spot on. I remember my Grandmother coming to her kitchen with a little pale of blueberries that she just picked from her orchard. That night there would be a beautiful crisp coming out of the oven, and I could hardly wait to have a serving of the crisp. This is a very simple recipe that can be served for  any occasion. This is one of our favorite fruit desserts.

Slow Cooker Creamy Italian Chicken

Some days are so busy that it is really nice to just load up the slow cooker in the morning and go on with the day. Today that is what I am doing, this Creamy Italian Chicken will cook slowly all day and will make a great dinner sauce for my pasta. This is a very simple recipe that takes just a few ingredients and in the pot for slow cooking. I love having  a go to recipe like this, just for days like today!

Hello everyone and I sure hope you are enjoying a spiritual and uplifting weekend. We are celebrating Easter here at the cottage with the big dinner and all the trimmings. I had hoped to be doing some more planting in the garden on Good Friday but the rain had kept us out of the garden. I always enjoy planning a holiday meal with all the traditional family foods that we enjoy. This meal plan will be filled with some favorite and some new recipes that our family will really enjoy.

  What is in season now and how can I use it? That is the question that started our Food and Recipe Basket. This month we are looking at some wonderful April fruits and vegetables that are in some of our gardens and also in the markets. I love looking forward to all the fresh fruits and vegetables that we will be having in the spring and summer months.

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 4-2-23

Welcome to April meal planning, along with all the showers that we sure hope will bring May flowers. My husband and I were just talking about the fact that April is here already. We are moving into a season that I just love. With the freshness of spring in all that we undertake, fresh garden fruits and vegetables included in our meal plans. Outdoor functions and lots of screen porch sitting. I am already spending some screen porch time with our new puppy Mister Cody, oh my he is keeping us moving!
