Farm Girl Can't Live by FIBER ALONE!!!



Please tell me I am not the only person who at 11:00 at night is baking Turkey Meat Loaf???

Now that the dye pots have cooled off and I have finally gathered my energy from another hot day I find myself in the kitchen baking Turkey Meat Loaf and cutting out my favorite Christmas Cookies.. Has the heat finally taken it's toll on this gal??

Nope, I am enjoying the fact that the sun has gone down, the sweet breeze that graces this farm has started, I received my "Buffy" Season 3 DVD from NetFlix today and I have a large home made Ice Coffee in my hands. Life is GRAND!

Now is the perfect time to get the meals done for the coming weekend - then I can go full speed tilt on the work that is always calling me. Besides, when I am too hot to even think straight I will have food waiting with very little effort. I have also on the menu planned a Raisin Bread French Toast with Fresh Fruit, Greek Feast Salad for lunch, Yummy Turkey Meat Loaf with a Twice Baked Potato and Heirloom Tomato Salad with Herb Dressing.. If the heat has not hurt my cookies I will be topping off the evening with yummy Cookies and Homemade Frozen Blueberry Yogurt Ice cream. Sounds like I will be eating well... Sunday is Poached Eggs from my sweet hens with a big slice of Melon, followed by BLT on homemade Cottage Cheese and Dill bread for lunch with a couple of Apricots, then dinner will be a Sweet Sausage and Goat Cheese Pizza with a small glass of wine..

As I finish up my Ice Coffee and nibble on a couple of Chia Spiced Mixed Nuts I will watch another installment of Buffy while I wait on the Turkey Meat Loaf to cool down before placing it in the frig and myself in bed. Wished I could place myself in the frig too but I will have to be content with my little bedside fan and the gentle breeze here at the farm.

So now that I have shared what I am having it is your turn to share what is on the menu for your weekend??

Grace, I think I will be doing barbecued pork roast on the grill!Everything sounds so yummy, especially the cookies and Iced Coffee. I am glad that the cookies came out for you! I do know that I will be spinning away this weekend! I am trying to finish my 2-ply lace yarn and it sure is taking a long time to spin! I really need to get some more bobbins!
Hope you have a great day!
Hugs,Monica

Oh I have a bourbon Pork roast to do but I don't have an outside grill but in the forest - too many wild things out there for me to cook meat.

You got to show me the yarn once your done... Oh, I love your new banner - you are so cleaver.. How is the sales???

Hugs to you, stay in front of the AC.

So now I'm really hungry....

Seems like lately we have so many veggies around here that we just grab whatever has just been picked and eat it for supper. Its been kind of relaxed around here lately. Or maybe its that we're actually so busy that we don't have time to make an actual meal! (Much like you, making meatloaf so late!!)

Enjoy the yummy food...

What goodies I tried to grow was flatten in the many hail storms so I have to go to farmers markets. I too just grab a piece of fruit or a veggie and eat as I work - not the best for one's body so I try to stop every once and a while and treat myself to planned meals like I did when my sons lived here.

Which I could seat a plate for you two tonight...

You have to cook at 11:00pm these days. As I write this at 6:15pm it is 94 degrees- in the house. Much like Mamatea, we go from garden to plate. Today we had blueberry pancakes, watermellon, corn, beans, potato salad,strawberry shortcake, fresh baked pizza shells in the outdoor oven (in this heat, of course) topped with eggplant dip, cukes,tomatoes, and two glasses of wine (our day off). Even if you suffer through this heat you know that this time of year yeilds such good food. It almost makes it worth while.

Jane you had many of my favorites - and your entitled to a couple of glasses of wine - I had thought of making some Peach Sangria but the peaches at the farmers market just was not in the best of shape so maybe next weekend... Something to look foreword to in this heat...
