My second "Farm Fresh To You" delivery has arrived.

I am so excited at the arrival of my Farm Fresh To You delivery. Every other week, delivered right to my door, I am greeted by a box filled with farm fresh organic vegetable and fruits. Here is what I found in my box.
2 lb Gala Apples ( replaced with Navel Oranges at my request)
2 lbs Valencia Oranges
1.5 Lbs Grapes
1 bunch Green Chard
2 lb Sugar pie Pumpkin (they ran out so I got more oranges)
1 lb Green beans ( ran out again but we got carrots , which we are more likely to eat)
1 bunch of spinach
1 lb Sweet Peppers
1 bunch Celery
2 garlic bulbs
2 lbs Yellow Onions
2 lb garnet Yams

All of this for 32.00. I wondered if I was saving or spending more money so I went to since I shop there and checked out their prices vs. what I paid. The total of non organic without the pumpkin $ 38.82. I never check prices on veggies if I did I wouldn't buy them and we would eat junk food. They had a limited Organic section to choose from if would have purchased those items the bill would have gone up at least 10.00. All of that said I am very happy to be a new customer of Farm Fresh to you. I also receive in my box recipes for some of the foods. On The website recipes can also be found. Check it out and if you decide to try it out use the promotion code 6164 and let them know Suzanne Watson of Redlands ( I go by my middle name if you didn't know) you will get $ 5.00 off and I will get my next delivery free.

A yucky dinner my family likes

Did this title catch your attention? Here is a recipe everyone like except me. I make it on the nights that I have meetings or have over indulged in Miguel's like I did today.This is a easy recipe that cooks itself.

Smoked Sausage n Slaw
1 package of smoked sausage
1 T veggie oil
1/2 C onions
1 t chopped garlic
3 cups of hash browns or grated potatoes ( I use the refrigerated ones)
14.5 Stewed Tomatoes
4 C Shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
1/2 C water or chicken broth ( the recipe calls for white wine but I use broth)

Cut sausage into length wise quarters into 1/4 inch slices

Use dutch oven over Med heat
add oil to pan and add sausage let brown for a few minutes
stir in remaining ingredients except liquid
reduce heat to Med low and cook covered for 10 minutes
Stir in broth and cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Enjoy as much as my family does and sprinkle in the love.

weekly Menu 10/4

Fall is here I can't wait to make Pumpkin bars tomorrow and visit Riley's farm on Friday. I'm also going to try to make a apple pie.My grandma or mom never made pies. I am becoming more comfortable with baking therefore I'm becoming a better baker.I've made more mistakes and messes while baking. No baking recipes will be posted until I've tried them and have had success with em.

Lot's of old favorites this week from the Rach. Here are the links for most.

Zippy Pizza: I use Pillsbury pizza dough. I add mushrooms and tomato's. You can put anything you want on it.

Italian Alphabet soup and Cheesy soup dippers
Justin loves this one. When he was in Kindergarten I made this for his class when they were learning their sounds.I had them each find the letters from their names and then just random sounds. I served in little Dixie cups since it was just a snack.

Also on the menu is Penne with sausage meatballs with peppers & onions
Haven't tried it yet so I will post after we taste it.

Also trying a new crock meal basic BBQ beef with mac salad.
I'll post after we've tried it.

Let me know your favorite recipes that you have tried and
Remember always sprinkle a little extra love.
