I will survive... I will survive...
"Oh, no, not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive, I will survive, hey, hey." Gloria Gaynor

Put a few tablespoons of olive oil in your skillet and then add the following:
Winter Squash Green Curry (Adapted from Vegetarian Suppers)I've been looking at this recipe for at least two years. Finally, this year, the warm fall allowed me to have eggplant, basil and winter squash at the same time. Eureka!

Squash and Apple Bake (adapted from Simply in Season)When we got to the farm a few weeks ago, this was what greeted us. It's one of my mom's favorite recipes - and I gave it to her. It shows up on our tables for Thanksgiving, Christmas and winter birthday parties. If you're looking for a new side dish to take along this holiday season this would be a great choice.
Butter and 9x13 pan. Peel and slice one large butternut squash and put it in the pan. Slice 3 or so apples over the top.
In a small bowl mix up 1/4 c. brown sugar, 3 T. melted butter, 1 T flour , 1 t. salt and 1/4 t. mace. Sprinkle over the apples. Cover and bake at 350 for about 45 min. or until the squash is tender. Really, does it get any easier than this?
A Strange MixtureOne Sunday night I realized that I had to use up a few odds and ends of vegetables, but I really didn't want to make a soup. We wound up eating breaded, friend okra; Parmesan kale chips, and a stir fry of white sweet potatoes, cabbage and scarlet runner shelly beans (it tasted OK, but looked terrible - no picture folks!)
Fried okraCut into bite size pieces. Toss with milk, then toss in cornmeal seasoned with salt and pepper. Fry till golden. Sprinkle with salt. Fight your children to get any for yourself.
Parmesan Kale ChipsTear Kale into medium sized pieces. Toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Spread on a baking tray and bake at 375 for 5-10 min. Don't over do it. Fight your children to get any for yourself.
Roasted Vegi "Lasagna" (Gluten free - uses potatoes!) and Chewy and Tender Bread Sticks
The bread stick recipe is from Mama Jo. She got it from Clove Lane. I didn't change anything. She's totally right - these are dangerously easy. I might start making them just because - I'm pretty sure they're going to be a part of a spaghetti sauce party if I ever get around to processing the tomatoes sitting in my freezer.
Blogging has given us a virtual village. 100 years ago Jane, Jennifer Jo and Sarah might have lived around the corner. Now, I get to be right in their kitchen - even though I only actually know one of those wonderful women. Blogging helps us feel less isolated. I am not the only one out there. Other women are managing to hold it together. Their lives aren't perfect either, but they're fluttering along the best they can, and we can learn from each other.
