So I have this pen pal who lives in Germany and we both love to garden. Well, strictly speaking I loved to garden past tense as it’s been several years since I’ve actually gotten to grown anything. Something, something three kids, something. Anyway, one year we decided to trade seeds (legally I have a small seed lot permit from the USDA) and from America, among other things I decided to send her okra seeds. These were totally a new thing to her and she was stumped what to do with them once they grew like weeds for her. So I sent her a bunch of recipes. I sent my FAVORITE okra recipe ever (and I love okra, especially fried) Johnny Marzetti. (Anyone from Ohio is immediately nodding their head, others are probably like what?), a recipe for gumbo, deep fried okra and this lovely Turkish stew recipe just to show you can be different.

Kid Friendly Tasks: Dumpling Maker

It’s getting cold out and farmer’s market season is coming to a close. Sad face. Even though I rag on them sometimes I still love going and shopping and talking to people, seeing all of the seasonal produce and snagging new ideas. There is only one week left at the market so I’ve been stocking up on meat from my favorite suppliers. This week I bought a whole chicken with this, a favorite winter chicken dish in mind. I like this recipe because it’s fast enough to use up a whole chicken during the week, yet still makes a great, filling chicken soup.

Reheats: Yes

Kid Friendly Tasks: Peeling Onion

As we are firmly in the fall season and headed towards winter it seems the perfect time to start once again with my soup postings. This stew is hearty, rich, but not particularly heavy. I love to make it with a side of mashed potatoes (even though it has potatoes already in it) or buttermilk biscuits to sop up the sauce.

Last week I got a lovely postcard from a woman in Slovenia who sent me a recipe for her national dish, a stew called Ricet. It sounded awesome, a hearty mix of beans, barley and sausage that I decided to try it out. I’m so glad that I did because it was as good as promised! Rich, hearty, not too meaty, but not to veggie either and very filling. Even my kids liked it, my son because of the sausage and my daughter because of the beans. I will definitely make this one again and it was well worth the hunt for unusual ingredients like parsley root.
