I made this a couple of nights ago.  Lemon Chicken with sauce, spinach pasta, and sauteed Bok Choy.

Mmmmmm. Looks good. My wife makes some lemon chicken thing. It’s real good.
I agree.  We make a lemon chicken thing as well, actually two things, now that I think about it. 

I got in trouble today because I made chicken pimento puffs wrong.


Nothing looks wrong with it to me.  ???

Here is some food for y'all.  (Have I lived in the South long enough to say "y'all"?  ??? )  Grilled sausage with peppers, onions, homemade sauerkraut, and tortellini.

Which one is the bad one?  You planning to bash my kraut?!  :o  I may not be Southern enough to say "y'all" with confidence, but I am PA Dutch enough to defend sauerkraut!  8)

I love kraut, but what the heck is tortellini?

It does look good!  I'm not a fan of tortellini, but the kraut looks great!  Maybe it's aging or the medication I'm on but fermented foods are definitely part of my daily diet.  I have found that kimchi is what my gut likes.

Tortellini is cheese-filled pasta.

I'm planning on trying to make some kimchi soon, what do you put in yours?

I made a big batch years ago and got it way too spicy.  I remember using napa cabbage and daikon radish.  I believe you can use anything that ferments.  I've heard of cucumber kimchi, radish kimchi, and cabbage kimchi.  I would need to go on a shopping trip to the Asian Food Market to get the proper ingredients.  A local food store sells kimchi in mild and spicy so I have been buying the mild.  At the Mother Earth News Fair there was a local lady that was selling various fermented products.  I bought a jar of her kimchi and it's really good!  I would like to buy some more from her.  It doesn't take much for kimchi to help my gut.  Once a day I eat 1/8th cup up to 1/4 cup.

My mom has been experimenting with cooking traditional Appalachian foods lately.  Last night we had soup beans, sauteed Swiss chard from our garden, cornbread, and some of our home-freeze-dried smoked pork.

Look what my sister finally made for the first time today . . . our own goats milk butter!!  We finally got a cream separator, and she was so excited to use it, got it all unpackaged, set up, heated up several gallons of milk, and the darned thing wouldn't turn on!  My sister was so disappointed, but she made the heated milk into chevre instead and contacted the company, and they had accidentally sent us one with a European plug.  It had an adapter, so my sister figured it was normal (the company is based in the US now, but was founded in Ukraine, and does a lot of business in Europe), but I guess the voltage wasn't right for the motor.  So they sent us another base for the machine, and this time everything worked great!  She separated the cream out of some of her milk yesterday, and this morning, whipped up some butter from it using the stand mixer.

Your sauteed swiss chard looks like the way I prepare mine.  Good stuff!

I've been slacking off on What's Cookin' lately.  Here's some 4th of July goat burgers, onion rings, and pea salad to make up for it.

Sorry I haven't been in the swing of What's Cookin' lately, everyone.  We are just getting back to normal food now that our plumbing is fixed (at least temporarily, hopefully permanently).

I agree, 15th!  Being from the Midwest I looked at that and thought how we have to travel thousands of miles to enjoy something like fresh seafood on vacation.  Actually, we are able to get fresh seafood here in the last few decades but it's costly.

Meanwhile, I am just excited that I found a great pasta salad recipe and I am able to use a lot of the veggies from the garden in it.

I'm back with some entirely homemade from scratch ice cream, cajeta (Mexican caramel sauce), and whipped cream, all from our goats milk and cream.  We also had the whipped cream on homemade waffles the next day.  8)

We haven't, but I'd be game to try.  Honestly we need to get better about replacing sugar with honey in a lot of recipes.  :-[

I just realized that we don't have any honey ice cream honey recipes posted.  I will post some in Recipes using Honey.
