We picked up my younger stepson on Sunday in South Bend (change of plans) and did not get back until after 6, so I’m glad that I planned a quick meal for tonight. We had Sloppy Josephines on Wheat-Oat Flax Buns, with sweet corn and a few additional steamed green beans from our garden (that last plant is hanging in there).July 29, 2018 at 10:00 pm #13062
The farmer’s market had lots of produce today that we used for supper: Locally grown artichokes (grown in Nebraska!!), saturn peaches, sweet corn, tomatoes and melons (2 types).July 30, 2018 at 7:55 pm #13064
We had Steak Diane for supper, with the rest of the sweet corn we got at the farmer’s market yesterday.July 30, 2018 at 9:52 pm #13065
To go with leftovers for Monday night’s dinner, I made a vegetable stir-fry of carrots, zucchini, snow peas, and mushrooms. (The snow peas and zucchini came from the farmers market.) I used grape seed oil and left the vegetables unseasoned. It went well with the leftover Sloppy Josephines and the freshly cooked sweet corn.
I also made a three-berry jam (details on the canning thread).July 31, 2018 at 4:35 pm #13071

For Tuesday dinner, I made a full recipe of the Cooks Country All-American Potato Salad. (Yes, that’s the third time I’ve made it this month.) I also tried a new recipe from Genius Kitchen: “Caramelized Baked Chicken Legs/Wings.” I used six whole chicken legs. I also increased the ketchup and added a bit of brown sugar. After 50 minutes, I increased the temperature to 375F, and I roasted it for another 15 minutes. The recipe was a hit with my husband and younger stepson. It made a lot of sauce, which I’ve saved to use in another recipe. (Next time, I might just do a half recipe of the sauce.) We had found nice sweet corn and some green beans at the farmers’ market this evening, so we had those as well.July 31, 2018 at 8:37 pm #13074

Hot dogs and chili tonight.August 3, 2018 at 6:09 pm #13102
We picked the first red bell pepper from the garden, so it had a starring spot in tonight’s stir fry. I roasted a large chicken half-breast for 30 minutes at 375F, using a minimal mayonnaise and panko coating. I then stir fried some separated onion slices, added celery and the red bell pepper, then halved mushrooms, the cut-up chicken, and broccoli florets. I had about two cups of the sauce left from the Caramelized Chicken Legs recipe I made on Tuesday and re-ran on Wednesday, so I heated it up, then thickened it with 2 Tbs. of cornstarch. I poured that over the vegetable mixture. We ate it over brown rice. Delicious!August 3, 2018 at 6:46 pm #13106
That does sound good, BakerAunt! Last night I made pizza, and today I fixed a tortellini and veggie salad.August 3, 2018 at 8:49 pm #13112
After my buns came out of the oven, I made a burger and had it with left over fried potato and fresh asparagus. I’m thinking about a banana split for later.August 4, 2018 at 3:15 pm #13116
I am grilling Italian sausage in a bun. I sautéed some onions and since I didn’t have any peppers I tried substituting pickled jalapenos. We will see.August 4, 2018 at 7:37 pm #13118
We had chicken thighs on the smoker, with leftover tortellini-veggie salad, sliced zucchini, and green beans from our garden. Finally!August 5, 2018 at 12:47 pm #13127
We had 5 cheese tortollini from Costco on Saturday, with sauce made from the tomatoes I got at the farmer’s market a few weeks back.
