Hello Recipe Game friends and welcome to September!  My goodness how can it possibly be Labor Day Weekend . . . Smiley Surprised.  Just want to take a moment and send a quick note to those that have been impacted by Hurricane Idalia and also our friends that have dealt with the extremely brutal summer season. Heart

 

With that in mind, let's start to think cool.  Maybe last minute salads and side dishes for this weekend's celebrations to get things started?  Thank you to our friend @Zhills who got us started with that fabulous CB Lima Bean recipe.  Please share your favorite seasonal recipes be it sides or main courses starting with the letter M or your choice:

 

Cracker Barrel Lima Beans 

 

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 bag frozen baby lima beans 16 ounce bag
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Dash smoked paprika

INSTRUCTIONS 

 

  1.  Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan or   Dutch oven over medium to medium-high heat.
  2.  Bring to a boil, stirring regularly to help dissolve   the bouillon cube. 
  3.  Reduce heat to low and cover pot.
  4.  Simmer for 20 minutes or until lima beans are   tender.    

 

  • Cracker Barrel uses baby lima beans on their menu, but you can also make this recipe with larger Fordhook lima beans or anything that is labeled “butter beans.”

I couldn't think of an "N", so I jumped to 'S', LOL!

 

But what better during a heat wave than a Jello dessert?

 

 

Strawberry Pretzel Salad
 
1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
4 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (6 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 (16 ounce) package frozen strawberries
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Mix together the pretzels, 4 1/2 tablespoons sugar and melted butter. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool completely.
 
In a medium bowl, beat the sugar and cream cheese until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Spread evenly over the cooled crust. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
 
In a medium bowl, stir together the gelatin mix and boiling water. Mix in frozen strawberries, and stir until thawed. Pour over cream cheese mixture in pan. Refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 1 hour.
 
**ETA**  Since fresh strawberries are widely available, feel free to substitute an equal amount,16 oz. (2 cups) sliced fresh strawberries!
 
Next recipe: Letter or recipe of your choice, maybe something cool that doesn't require much oven heat!

This recipe makes me smile because it came from my mother and a dear friend of hers several years ago.  It became a tradition to have this on Christmas Eve and continues to this day in our family.

 

Clam Chowder

 

4-5 celery ribs, sliced in small pieces including leaves

1 onion, chopped

1/2 cup water

2 cans Cream of Celery Soup, undiluted

2 cans Cream of Potato Soup, undiluted

3 cans New England Clam Chowder, undiluted

1 quart milk

1 stick of butter

3 (6 1/2 oz) cans minced clams, drain

2 tablespoons dried parsley

salt and pepper to taste 

 

Simmer together the celery, onion and water, covered, for 5-8 minutes; set aside.  In large pot, mix together the soups, milk, butter, clams and parsley.  Add celery, onion mixture with water.  Cook on med-low for about one hour until heated through stirring occasionally.  Do not boil.

 

Now where were we??  Guess I'll rewind game...

@Zhills

Please clarify for me: a couple Tablespoons of Flour &1 /3 Broth to deglaze pan AND Then sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms and stir, add the chicken broth, stirring until smooth. 
 
Is the 'couple Tablespoons flour and 1/3 broth (cup?) to deglaze pan' used in browning the chicken and 'then additional flour and ½ C Chicken Broth' are needed in preparing the mushrooms to pour over the chicken and artichokes in the casserole dish?  
 
Or, is there a typo and the flour and broth are used solely in preparing the mushrooms to pour over the chicken/artichokes?
 
I hope to make this soon.  Thanks!

Thanks for catching that.  I corrected it. 

 

Can't believe how many times I have made this and not noticed that.

 

Enjoy!  It is different, but delicious!

I am sharing this recipe today because I just made a batch (second time).  They are easy to make and good; freeze well.  Makes up to 5 dozen  so good for big gatherings or freeze for different meals.  Posting recipe as found in a Taste of Home cookbook.  But....the first time I made a batch I followed the recommended temperature of 450.  I had burned bottoms.  Today I followed temperature on biscuit can of 375 and baked longer watching for them to turn golden brown...about 15-20 minutes; no burn problem.  Also, just used 1 large and 2 small cans of biscuits today...for 36 rolls. (I could not find 12 oz. cans...used 16 oz.)

 

PARMESAN KNOTS

 

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes

1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon garlic powder

dash of pepper

3 cans (12 oz each) refrigerated BUTTERMILK BISCUITS

 

Combine oil, cheese, parsley, oregano, garlic powder and pepper; set aside.  Cut each BISCUIT in half.  Roll each portion into a 6" rope; tie in a loose knot.  Place on greased baking sheets.  Bake at 450 for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and brush with Parmesan mixture.  Serve warm or freeze up to 2 months.

 

**Added Note.....by "tie in loose knot" it is like making a pretzel shape.   Sorry I could not post picture.
