Extra Veggie Marinara

If you happen to be a canner this is a great marinara to put by. I have to warn that it is slightly time intensive, maybe 3 hours + canning and processing. On the other hand, if you want a way to get kids, or adults, to eat their veggies and never know it this is a great recipe. If you want to use your surplus of random veggies from the garden like tomatillos, eggplant, or squash then this is an adaptable recipe for you. If you are looking for a complex, flavorful dish then look no more. I hope you will find this garden fresh recipe as worth while as I do. Great over pasta for a vegetarian dish or serve this with my Italian Meatballs on a delicious meatball sub!

Fried Green Tomatoes

A Southern classic dish. You need unripe, firm green tomatoes for this, not red tomatoes. Some recipes call for dipping the tomato slices in egg or buttermilk before dredging in the cornmeal.

Italian Meatballs

Who doesn’t love meatballs? Especially with our delicious local beef. They are so versatile. Serve them as an appetizer or with pasta as a main course.. I recommend a hearty, thick spaghetti like Buccanti #6. It is a hollow spaghetti noodle, which allows the juices in the sauce to be held tightly in the thin hollow tube. Really worth it. But don’t forget to make my Extra Veggie Marinara recipe to go along with these delicious round delights. Make extra because you know you love a good oven toasted meatball sub for a quick leftover lunch or diner.

Make your own Dog Food

I used these guidelines to make a batch of food that would provide about a two week supply for my 50-lb dog, served twice-a-day along with half a cup of dry food. Use any combination of quality ingredients, striving for the same kind of balance and variation you want in your own food. I recommend you talk with your vet and look for recipes on line.
I cook meat, veggies, and rice separately, then combine into baking pan and cook like a casserole to achieve firmer consistency.
Eliminate or minimize onion and garlic as they can be toxic to some dogs.

Servings: Two week supply

Mrs. Turner's Squash Skillet

Found on “Twice Bloomed Wisteria” blog from a homeschooling mother who lives on a farm in Central Mississippi. She writes:
“A few years ago, my Momma said she wished she could find some green tinted patty pan squash so she could make Mrs. Turner’s Squash Skillet. Mrs. Turner is an older lady in town who was originally from somewhere else. She had some different ways of doing things than many of the people who were born and raised here. One of those different ways was planting patty pan squash when everyone else here only planted yellow squash. Mrs. Turner once shared her squash and recipe with my mother. I, of course, found seeds and planted them. When the squash was ready, I shared it with Mrs. Turner and Momma and she shared the recipe with me.

Here is that recipe.
You can tell that this is a truly Southern recipe because sugar is added to vegetables. Sugar is added to everything here, EXCEPT the cornbread. Cornbread, by the way, is the perfect accompaniment to this squash dish. Anyway, if you feel uncomfortable adding sugar to vegetables, don’t do it or add less, which is what I do. The squash will still be good.
Here are some other things I know about summer squash. You may substitute any summer squash in any summer squash recipe. There will be subtle taste and consistency issues, but the recipe will not fail or taste terrible."
