Menu Monday 06 JUN 2011

Posted by Hallee on Jun 6, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of June 6th. My menu will be scaled down a bit for the next few weeks. Kaylee is gone, and Gregg won’t be home until later in the month, so the meals are going to be much more toddler-friendly. As far as desserts go, I have some fresh peaches, so I think I’m going to make a Fresh Peach Pie. I also made a French Vanilla Bean Honey Ice Cream – I will post that recipe this week.

Southern Cheese Grits

Posted by Hallee on Jun 2, 2011 in American Quisine, Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

Grits, for those of you who haven’t spent a good portion of your life below the Mason-Dixon line, is a cornmeal made from hominy. Hominy is hulled corn kernels that have been stripped of their bran and germ. What the American Indians gave the Pilgrims was likely hominy. “Lye hominy” is made when the kernels of corn are soaked in a light lye solution. You can get white grits (made from white corn) or yellow grits (made from yellow corn). The difference between grits and polenta, other than regions of America, is that polenta is made from corn that retains the germ of the grain.

Homemade = Yummier

Posted by Hallee on May 3, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Life

Kaylee came after school and I made her a plate of sandwiches. Halfway through the first one, she stopped eating and said, “This isn’t your bread is it?”

Homemade Potato Chips

Posted by Hallee on Apr 21, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides, Snacks

My son Scott loves potato chips. Since potatoes are in the “dirty dozen”, I try very hard to just get organic potato chips. But, organic potato chips are SO EXPENSIVE. It doesn’t seem worthwhile to even buy that little tiny bag. Recently, Scott brought me a potato and said, “Can you make me some potato chips?” I love the fact that he deduced that potato chips come from potatoes, and that he was confident I could produce them. Which I did. They were amazing. Kaylee came home from softball practice and ate the leftovers, then asked if I would make them for her the next morning for her lunch. I will never purchase bagged potato chips again.

Turkey Sandwich Meat

Posted by Hallee on Apr 20, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Snacks

It is so simple to make your own sandwich meat, and it tastes SO much better than anything you can purchase prepackaged or have sliced at a supermarket deli.

Savory Baked Beans

Posted by Hallee on Mar 14, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

These were so good. I think what I liked about them was the lack of green pepper – green pepper throws the taste of baked beans off for me. I think some beef bacon would have been good in them as well, but this recipe is entirely vegetarian. The flavors were wonderful. Because there are no meat or dairy products in it, this is a perfect dish for a Daniel Fast or for Lent.

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Posted by Hallee on Feb 14, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

This a simple, hands-off side dish. A light olive oil with the simple seasoning of salt and pepper is all you need.
