Rose,  Home made cream cheese?  Wow!

What we ate for dinner, sweet corn and my first KY Wonders:

The corn looks funny but it was sweet.  The beans are on my success list.

Floyd all my serrano's were on the plants and had turned red. I just put them in the dehydrator and turned it on. They dry in a day or two and then I put them in a plastic bag and into the spice cabinet. The peppers are whole.

I will give that a try then.  My peppers are still flowering while everything else is done.  You just put them in a baggy and in a cool dry place for storage.  Sounds like a plan.

Cleared out a bed to prep for garlic planting on Halloween weekend so tonights supper will include the last batch of bush green beans.  The beet greens and spinach mustard I pulled out went into this weeks salad bucket.

Picked the last of raspberries yesterday along with lettuce for last nights dinner. Still have kale and chard. Suppose to get a pretty good freeze tomorrow night but the low this morning was 62 degrees.

What are you eating from your garden today?

Post  GloriaG on 10/26/2014, 12:05 pm

Just picked the last cantaloupe of the season as well as one zucchini, some lettuce  and the first picking of the fall green beans.  Supper will be grilled chicken with the last of the stored white potatoes and some  french style green beans. 

We won't empty the bags of sweet potatoes until mid-November, just in time to make sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving.

My DH and his mom made cider from our apples yesterday.  I took 1.5 gallons and boiled it down to 3 pints of syrup.  Delisious on pancakes and in tea.

I picked a bunch of Roma's, lunchbox sweet peppers, carrots and grape tomatoes. My friend said she dries the grape or cherry tomatoes whole then grinds them into powder to add to recipes. I think I'll try that!

Today I had lettuce and carrots. I am going easy on the carrots because I want to hang on to them for later in the season. I want to dig some up when it has snowed etc.
I also added nasturtium flowers and leaves to my lettuce.

Yesterday we made apple tarts with the last of our apples and instead of a glaze made with apricot jam we used our peach jam that we made. They are great. Last night we hade the best spaghetti squash we have ever had and so simple. We cut it in half put it in a pan with a little water, cooked 45 min. covered, turn over, cover, cook 15 min. or until done. Take out seeds and scrape squash into bowl. You can use butter but we took 2.5 tablespoons of lemon olive oil, heated with a cup of finely chopped herbs ( we used sage, parsley, chives and basil), salt and pepper. Toss until coated and warm. Outstanding. Very Happy

We had the best throw together meal yesterday!  I had a small butternut squash, 1/2 a large zucchini sautéed in coconut oil.  When almost done I added 1 tsp of a Mediterranean spice mix and a generous sprinkling of curry and added a cut up chicken pineapple sausage link, cooked some more and tossed in left over long grain brown rice with quinoa.  SO GOOD!

My sister was visiting and it was my daughter's birthday so I cooked for a change.  A smorgasbord meal of a lot of different veggies.

Edamame
English Peas
Pinkeye purple hull peas
Rattlesnake beans
Sweet potato
Corn
Carrots

Ran out of time and didn't cook the squash and zucchini.  The top hit was the sweet potato.

Roasted KY wonders, variety of sweet peppers, small eggplants along with store bought potatoes and cabbage. Still strange to me to walk out the back door to get dinner. Shocked

Picked the last of the lettuces and chard yesterday; mad stuffed peppers with the last of the bell peppers; had some for dinner and froze two meals worth.  Also had salad which included not only the greens but carrots and radishes from the garden.  Pulled 4 slicing toms and a couple dozen yellow pear salad toms from the ripening box in the basement today. 

Will have pizza tonight which includes homegrown hot peppers.  I still have kale and carrots in the garden which are buried under leqaves for protection from the expected freeze this weekend.

Baby Green Hubbard (Baker). Cut in half, microwaved 5 + 5 minutes, salt and pepper. Never had it before; the taste reminds me of pumpkin seeds.
