That’s a Johnsonville smoked brat, Campbell’s pork & beans, and homemade macaroni salad with yellow bell peppers, green onions, and fresh dill.
Cooking is– no, let me make a stronger assertion– cooking should be part of life. And Lord knows we cook from scratch a lot here at Farther Along Farm. I really do enjoy planning a nice meal and then puttering around off and on in the afternoon doing prep work. Last Monday’s Creative Cooking Beef Stroganoff was an excellent example of this. So was The Frugal Gourmet’s Beef Stew with Marsala served over Bob’s Red Mill’s Basic Italian Polenta. Cream of Zucchini Soup (with homegrown yellow squash) was another.
But there are times when cooking needs to be a smaller part of my Monday than usual. Not that the recipes I mentioned above are terribly time consuming, but they take a more of an investment than heating up a can of pork & beans!
Supper was good. It was fun! tonight Mr. Big Food is making He Man Casserole! This is a Big Food Favorite! Love it!
