Always searching for a different way to eat more greens, especially kale, I thought I’d give this one a try. Super simple and good turn out! Great for a holiday side.

Ah, that summer garden I nursed and spent so much time on all spring  only to leave it with reckless abandon to the care of my overworked husband when I went out-of-town for two months….

Whoops!

I accidentally packed the crock pot.

I thought mama had more than one.  And I have no idea where it is in the garage.

Wellllll……I’ll just keep you posted on the garden.

Anyone care to share one of their recipes?

I didn’t even do a post about thanking all the soldiers and men and women who have sacrified for our country on Memorial Day. I was swimming in garden. And I am very thankful for the fact that I am able to do that.

How the day looked in pictures:

The old me would say, “I can’t even pronounce it, there’s no way I can cook it.” The new me says, “Try anything.” (IN THE CROCK POT!) Turned out beautiful, colorful and highly nutritious. I had some fresh green beans that were about to go, so as my grandmother (the one who wasn’t a fabulous cook but did raise and feed 7 children) would say, “Throw it in there. No need to waste.”

I had a few cans of Carnation 2% milk to use up. I plugged “carnation recipes” into Google and found Shepherd’s Pie. Hey, I always wanted to try making that!

Note: Mashed potatoes are needed + filling.  I cooked the mashed potatoes in the crock pot the day before, but feel free to cook on stove top or use store-bought to save time.

Say, whaaat? Why would you need to use the crock pot when you could cook these in 15 to 20 minutes on the stove top? I tried these when we were living in the hotel and had no stove top, but it would also work during the holidays to free up that stove top for other things.IMG_6726 (more…)

Homemade mashed potatoes intimidated me. They seemed time-consuming and tricky, something I wasn’t capable of making. Boy, was I wrong!
This takes very little effort for an end reward.
