Red potatoes, tomatoes, and a venison roast from last falls young buck.   Dump cake for dessert.

we've been eating healthy as of late, cooking a lot of fresh food and trying new recipes. i'm even cooking quite a bit now. this is one of my favorites to make, it's called "rick's fancy chicken"

spinach and feta stuffed chicken breast, topped with bacon.

today we had it with stuffed zucchini. sauteed onions, garlic, mushrooms, garbanzo beans (chick peas) all go into scooped out zucchini and baked in the oven with the chicken.

Dinner is still on the way. We had pinto beans and rice with spam for lunch. I basically cooked them as you would red beans and rice. My wife says she likes the pintos better than the red kidneys. It must be her western taste buds.  >:D

We each had half of a takeout medium black olive/mushroom/Italian sausage pizza from the Outlaw Pizza dude here in town and a homemade salad of Romaine lettuce & blue cheese crumbles with balsamic vinegar/garlic/oil dressing.  Big glasses of locally-pressed apple cider to wash it all down. :cheers:

Seeing Diogenes cooking that Spam the other day made me want some.  We had Spam, macaroni and chesse, peas, fresh tomatoes, and a mix of pineapples and bananas this evening.  I feel good....... but guilty.

Just made a "hamburger bake" for lunch.

This is ground beef, a little onion and garlic, tomato sauce and parsley and oregano layered with a sour cream and cream cheese mix and mixed pasta, though penne or rotella would be fine. Then it's covered with a cheddar/mozzarella mix and baked for 20 minutes.

My wife just told me it is the second best thing I've ever made. I disagree, but I'd sure as heck eat it again.

That sounds good PW.  What temperature in the oven?   I am not sure what the pasta part has to be, cooked ahead or ?

Got the firepit going for the first time this season the other night. Cooked up a couple of T-Bone steaks over some seasoned live oak firewood coals. Had made up some cold macaroni salad earlier in the day. I love this time of year.

Let me find the recipe for you...

http://www.food.com/recipe/hamburger-noodle-bake-21363

I added a dash or two of oregano and dried parsley, and I used more onion and garlic than the recipe called for. I also used more cheddar and added some mozzarella. I cooked the rest of the recipe "by the book". 350oF for 20 minutes in the oven.

You do need to cook the pasta ahead. But I stopped the cooking a couple of minutes early so that it will finish cooking in the baking dish. This way it can absorb some moisture from the tomato sauce and you don't end up with a bunch of water in the bottom of the dish.

Thanks for the recipe PW.  It sounds like a good dish.

Tonight we had crock pot chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, cranberry jelly, and fresh apple pie my wife baked this afternoon.

Fresh out of the oven loaf of bread,


And chicken soup made from one of those store bought rotisserie chickens, 



My Buck knife did the chicken and all the veggies, so I threw it in for some credit.

We had company from Colorado this week and ate awfully well.  Saturdy night we supped on Spaghetti pie.  Sunday it was Green Chili soup with fresh bread.  Monday evening we ate broiled pork chops, au gratin potatoes, and a salad.  After supper we had a bottle of White Zinfandel wine and relaxed by the wood stove. 

I am sorry to see them go.

My wife, sweet Sue, made a big pot of lentil bean soup with potatoes and bacon.  It was terrific tonight along with rolls and butter and a side dish of tomatoes.  That soup always tastes better the next couple of days too.  There is only one bad thing about it but we won't go into that.   :-X

Jambalaya. Sorry I didn't get a pic, there was serious eating that needed to be done. :drool:

I started around 5:30 and only just put away the leftovers in the fridge, so it isn't something I cook often, but that makes it all the more delicious!

Looked just like Thanksgiving around our table.  My wife cooked a wild turkey I got last Spring and went ahead with potatoes, green beans, and the usual fare.  It was great.

Golly that looks good wsdstan.

Two nights ago I went to moms for Lutefisk, lefse, boiled potatoes and corn for supper.  So now I've had my fill for this year. 

Smoked Salmon on cracker was supper tonight.

I love to hunt turkeys in the Spring Wolfy.  Trying to call in gobblers is as much fun as a guy or girl can have in the woods.  The meat is just like a butterball but with out the extra fat.  They eat good, especially the first and second year birds.  I have been getting a couple each Spring and we save one for the fall. 

Next year I am going to use the trade gun if I can get to where I know its going to go off every time.  ???

Thanks for the comments WW and Wolfy, we appreciate it.

Turkey soup and biscuits.  I thought I was sick of that bird, but soup somehow brought it back from the "uugh" status to "YUUUM!".  I made way too much and distributed some of it around to a few old folks in the 'hood.

Turkey soup is great stuff.  This year we put the dressing in it.  It was like dumplings.  Tasted great.

I'm doing a chicken enchilada soup today.

Basically it's 3 small chicken breasts browned on both sides in a pot with 1 chopped onion, 2 cans of diced tomatoes (undrained), 1 can of whole kernal corn (drained), 1 can black beans (undrained), 2 cloves garlic minced, 3/4 cup cilantro leaves chopped, 2 cans enchilada sauce, 1 can chicken broth, and a tablespoon each of chili powder and ground cumin.

Simmer it 2 1/2 hours until chicken is flaky and shred it with forks. Then cut up some corn tortillas into thin strips and serve on top of the soup.

Last time I made this there were no leftovers. :drool: And it is really easy to make since most of the ingredients are already prepped for you except for the onion, garlic and cilantro.
