Random Five Friday

I am a "foodie" and love to cook...maybe a little baking

1.  Can't beat pies made with fresh peaches, apples and rhubarb....all home grown.

2.  I could not live without having salads everyday.
Below is a beet (from our garden), orange, goat cheese and caramelized walnut salad.
 Frequently I use whatever fruit is in the, it was grapes, oranges, bananas and peanuts.

3.  Casseroles are comfort food.
This is cauliflower, carrots, onions and peas in a cheese sauce topped with hard boiled eggs.
 Everyone loves chicken and biscuits.

4.  We make 50-75 bags of sauce from our garden and freeze it.
 It gets used for pizza....
 spags and soups.

5.  Ethnic foods are great.
Shish ke bobs on the grill are a piece of cake.
 Picked up some knockwurst at a German Deli/Restaurant and added homemade German Potato Salad, Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage, Applesauce (from our own organic apple tree) and pumpernickel bread.
 Oh, and I can't forget about potato pancakes.
Are you hungry?
