Tuesday's Tasty Table 9/21

Good morning,

Getting the kids off to school and then I'll stop at the market for some prok chops for dinner. msmofet's dinner from last week is my inspiration for tonight.

So dinner will be McCormick Inspirations pork chops with sage and apples. Rice pilaf and leftover sauteed peas with shallots from last night.

HAGD and healing thoughts to all in need.

I hope you enjoy it LC!!

Soup and salad tonight. Details to follow:

It was so beautiful today we went for a ride to a farm market. I found some wonderful things!! I picked up some interesting whole coffe bean flavors: pumpkin pie beans, chocolate, coconut kiss beans, graham cracker beans and vermont maple beans. The pumpkin pie is pretty mild but it smells fantastic!! I found the LARGE bottles of Maggi seasoning. Some spinach pasta nests, grapeseed oil. I also picked up apples, cantalope, red and green peppers, red grapes, tomatoes, pineapple, accorn squash and some gourds and mini pumpkins. I had a great time!!

I got a rottis chicken that hub and I had part of for lunch.

Dinner will be 1 of 2 soup (I will decide which later) and salad. Soup #1 - I picked up a soup mix: red & brown lentils, yellow & green split peas, small pasta shells and sun dried tomato soup. Soup #2 - I will add the cut up rottis chicken to chicken stock with cheese tortellini, mushrooms, celery, carrots and baby spinach. Serve with salad (and maybe corn bread with local whipped honey on the side). Well thats the plan at the moment but things can change quickly!! LOL I am hoping for 2 days meals from the soup.

WOW, msmofet ... sounds like you got a real bounty from the farmer's market. Isn't Fall such a great time of year. Have fun using all these wonderful fresh fruits and veggies.

Not really sure about tonight. I'm pulling a chuck roast from the freezer tonight to serve tommorow. I did make chicken stock last night, maybe I'll do something with that tonight. Or not, LOL!

I'm roasting a chicken. Probably going to make baked potatoes and salad to go along side.

I never got around to taking any meat out to defrost, so I'm not sure. I have the stuff to make burritos, so that will probably be what I end up with. Tuna Noodle Casserole sounds kind of good too. Hmmm Decisions, decisions!

Stop the presses!!!! I just found my multi-grain bread is starting to go stale. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? French toast!

I couldn’t decide which soup to make so I made them both.

The 2 Soups were:

1. Packaged Soup mix: Yellow & green split peas, brown & red lentils, small pasta shells and sun dried tomatoes. It called for 1 chopped clove garlic & 1 chopped onion which I sautéed in grapeseed oil and just add water & seasoning packet. (First time I purchased this soup mix and it was pretty good)



2. Homemade Soup: Chicken stock, carrot, celery, onion, sliced mushroom, green onion, chiffonade baby spinach, cheese tortellini and rotisserie chicken (I topped with fresh grated Romano & Parmesan cheese).
