Baked corned beef garnished with rainbow chard with caramelized onions. Planned it for St Paddy's but got sidetracked.Gotta use that chard. Chilled zucchini, corn, and (rotel) tomatoes for a side. 

Save the Earth. It's the only planet with chocolate.

Steaks on the grill with teriyaki, salad with an asian dressing, and some other veggie that I find in the fridge (I am low carbing for summer, sigh). Oh, mushrooms in butter would be good for the steaks!

Tonight we are having one of our home grown chickens roasted in the crockpot, red potatoes, some our own asparagus, broccoli & kidney bean salad, and snickerdoodle cookies. Please pull up a chair and we will pass the platter.

Going to make a mashup of all the leftovers floating in the fridge:

bratwurst, steamed veggies, pasta with cream sauce. I figure stir all together & warm and it will kill 3 birds with one stone and get rid of all those tupperwares in the fridge!

Last night was one of our International Dinners; Bulgaria. 

Everything was so good, but I can't even think of dinner yet……and of course, hubby is starved!

Go figure!

Riley's Mom,

 

What do you cook for Bulgaria?

 

Tonight we're having potato soup w/leeks and hot bread, asparagus, and maybe chocolate mousse for dessert. It should be potato-leek soup, but the leeks are only chunky pencil size, and I only cut 4. [I just couldn't wait ANY more! I kept looking at them and looking . . . .]

Hi TeaCup!  We had a delicious appetizer with feta cheese, sliced tomato, sliced sweet peppers and an egg cracked over it, which was baked.  I don't know they proper name.  My friend made that dish.  She also made the entrees: moussaka (it had lamb and potatoes and a cheesey crust on top) and gyuveche (a baked chicken with a tomato type sauce). 

I made Bulgarian cheese loaves (made without yeast; yogurt, feta cheese,eggs and self-rising flour), Shopska Salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, feta cheese, hot pepper slices and an olive oil dressing) and the dessert, Torta Garash ( a chocolate and walnut cake). 

Everything was delicious!!  My friend keeps track of the countries and last night was our 35 th dinner!  It's challenging sometimes, because some of the recipes use terms we're unfamiliar with or we can't get some of the ingredients in our remote area.  But, we are learning lots!

What a great idea rileysmom,  might see if I can get one of the grand  daughters  to join me for something similar. International Dinners would be a great way to make more use of our cookbooks.  ( It is the general family opinion that both of us have waaay too many cookbooks) We had leftovers last night,  dirty rice, s.o.s and eggplant casserole, with pound cake for afters..wave

hee hee Joyce!  There is no such thing as TOO many cookbooks!  But, I'm guilty,too! 

I like that I've learned different ways to cook the same ingredients I'm used to using and there are ingredients that I've never had the opportunity to use.  So, it's been quite fun!

International Dinners would be a great way to spend time with your grand daughters!

Rilelysmom..how fun! I use to do that with a few of my friends. We would gather at one home, I would pick an International country themed dinner, each would pick from the menu, I would also gather information for each country each month. Did that for several years. Everyone in the last couple years have had many things arise, so the dinners have stopped. Someday we hope to resume.

This evening I made locally made Apple Chardoney Chicken Sausage, with garlic roasted Brussell Sprouts from our fall garden, mixed greens salad, homemade Honey Sunflower Seed Bread w/Elderberry Jelly.

dee58m, did you do all the cooking or did you all share?  We kind of divide it up, one does like 2 entrees and the other does a appetizer, side and dessert.  Some are really involved and sometimes, the hardest part is deciphering the recipe!

It turns out that that was our 35th dinner!  We have to make our own fun out here in the middle of nowhere!  laugh

rileysmom, I am LOVING the international dinners idea!  Unfortunately, I don't know too many folks here who like to experiment with new recipes, but I'll put this idea away for future use.

 

Tonight, I'm making Tortellini (recipe here:  http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Tortellini-with-Italian-Sausage-Fennel-and-Mushroom-362553).  I make it with homemade turkey Italian sausage and sub milk or yogurt for the cream; I'm also going to use broccoli rather than spinach, 'cause broccoli's what I've got.  A really great recipe, and I know my honey will love it after cycling the 11 miles home from work!
