Whats For Dinner Next Week, 10-1-23

Welcome October and welcome to you! I am grateful to be able to make this post today. My husband and I have been sick with an upper respiratory virus. I really have always been so blessed  to be able to make the post every week on time, but yesterday I was in bed and just couldn't make it. Thank the Lord, I am feeling much better and am able to be here today. Lets see what we can come up with to kick us off into the fall season! I am so excited that fall is here so we can make some warm comfy, cozy meal plans.

Full Plate Thursday, 660

  Welcome to Full Plate Thursday, 660 and our Top Ten Features Party from last weeks party! I always love the last week of the month when you get to choose the top ten post with the most views. Looks like you picked some very talented bloggers with great post for the Top Ten this week, I sure hope you enjoy them. It is a beautiful fall day here at the cottage and a perfect time to be outdoors and enjoy our party. I can't wait to see what you will be sharing with us today and thanks so much for sharing with us, I really appreciate each one of you!

Old Fashioned Vegetable Beef Soup

  We are soup lovers here at the cottage, and this recipe is one of my favorites. This recipe has a rich beef base with all the seasons of the beef. Fresh vegetables are then sauteed' and simmered in a wonderful soup broth complete with fresh herbs. This soup freezes really well and can be ready to serve in a short time. Perfect for a busy day. 

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 9-24-23

  Hello everyone, it is so good to be with you today to make a great meal plan for next week. It is a beautiful fall day and I am loving being on the screen porch. We had a really busy week here, we have been planting fall and winter vegetables in the garden. We are so excited to be able to plant, we finally got enough rain that has made that possible. I will sure keep you posted as we move along. Today, I have got recipes all over the table and have to make decisions for the meal plan. Before we started I walked the barn to see what was available in the bins and the freezer. We are really well stocked in the pantry with home-canned goods from the summer. I usually like to go into the winter months with 200 to 300 jars of home-canned goods to make until the spring vegetables are producing. Now for the meal plan for this week!

Apple Bundt Cake with Caramel Glaze

  Our Apple Bundt Cake with Caramel Glaze is a very special welcome to the fall and winter season. This cake recipe is so easy to make and delicious to eat. We are using a wonderful spice batter for the cake and adding fresh apple with chopped pecans. We are topping it with a creamy caramel glaze and more chopped pecans. I recently got this recipe from an old friend and I am so happy to share it with all of you! Thanks so much for the recipe Mary, we all loved it!

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 9-17-23

Hello everyone from the screen porch today and I am watching it rain. Yes we have been getting some wonderful much needed rain. We have been so encouraged that we may get busy and plant a fall and winter garden. I notice every week on our  Full Plate Thursday, 658 , that we have more and more warm and cozy fall recipes at our party. I have been going through my fall recipe file and they all look so good, it is hard to choose. Lets get busy here and see what kind of a delicious meal plan we can come with for this week.

Full Plate Thursday, 658

Welcome to Full Plate  Thursday, 658 I am so excited to see you today! Come on back to the garden patio, fall is here along with much cooler temperatures. We are actually considering a fall garden again, and we are looking forward to all of those fall and winter vegetables. We sure had a great party filled with fall dishes and get tips for fall food last week. We have some great features from that party that I sure hope you enjoy! Thanks so much for coming to the party today, I can't wait to see what you will be sharing with us.

Mushroom Burger Casserole

  Our Mushroom Burger Casserole was developed from a Mushroom Burger that I made for one of my sons when he was growing up. As the family grew we developed the recipe into a casserole which will feed a lot more folks at one time plus it is delicious! A combination of fresh mushrooms, ground chuck, with a fantastic sauce and added pasta. Oh my it is a comfort deluxe casserole!

I am determined to get this meal plan out today. After some technical delays we are up and running again. We are so grateful to report that we got some rain and it even dropped the temperatures just a bit. With any luck I will  be able to get this posted today so you can have it for your meal plan ideas for the week. I have got some great recipes to post and I know my husband is going to love them.

Full Plate Thursday, 657

  Welcome to Full Plate Thursday, 657 and at last welcome September! Hope all of you had a fantastic Labor Day Holiday weekend. Labor Day here at the lake always marked the end of summer fun and the beginning of the fall season. I am so excited to see the foods of fall start to appear on our table. We had a great party last week and are featured here today, I sure hope you enjoy the features! Come on back to the patio, we will enjoy being outdoors today and we are saving you a spot at the table. Thanks so much for coming today, I can't wait to see what you will be sharing!

Country Corn, Potato and Sausage Chowder

  This country corn, potato and sausage chowder could be found in my grandmothers kitchen just about anytime the corn was harvested.  It is packed with fresh corn, potatoes, onions and spicy sausage, a delicious stick to your ribs chowder that our family loves. Slow cooked with fresh herbs makes this chowder a winner every time. This chowder can be frozen for up to 3 months.

September Food and Recipe Basket

What's In Season and How Do I Use It September is a great month for fresh foods and the season invites us to turn to more fall like recipes. If the temperatures are normal with the normal amount of rain, our area will produce a full line up of the fruits and vegetables. What I really look at in September are the foods that will not be producing that much longer and I turn to the preserving and canning of those predominantly spring and summer products. 

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 9-3-23

  Hi y'all, I am so glad to see you today and hope you are having a fantastic Labor Day Weekend! The Labor Day Weekend here at the lake is always a bittersweet time because it ends another wonderful summer season for playtime at the lake. We are happy to walk away from this very hot summer that we have had and perhaps put all the high temperatures behind us for a season. We will have friends and family in and out throughout the weekend so we are planning on lots of great food to enjoy.
