Greens From Daddy’s Patio: From Summer to Fall (Week 22-ish)

First of the fall and there she goes back... -Sly and the Family Stone 

Hello my loves!

Here’s a quick check-in as Daddy and I transition from a summer garden to a fall garden. If you are just tuning in, you’d have to go back to the beginning to see why we are where we are today.

Not to worry though, you can find past episodes on the right panel of this blog under categories: Greens From Daddy’s Patio.

Anyway…

There have been some losses, but, as I said before, I’ve learned that this is a huge part of the process.

Enjoy !

Greens From Daddy’s Patio: Daddy Over My Shoulder (Week 9)

Even though I’m getting more and more comfortable with gardening, Daddy is always watching over my shoulder.

Whenever I’m working with the plants, he usually says something like…

“Add a little bit of this!”

“Add a little more of that!”

OR

“Not too much!

“That’s enough!”

“Put it over there.”

“Move it over here.”

“You don’t need to do that.”

“Look here bae, do it like this.”

And when I get it just right, he reassures me with a super sweet …

“There ya go!”

I’ve lived my entire life anticipating those words when I’m in the midst of learning new things from Daddy.

If you listen VERY CLOSELY, you can hear him say that to me in previous videos 🙂

Anyway, today, I made more room for my spinach by replanting my rosemary and basil.

Best believe Daddy’s right there watching every step.

Enjoy the video and note that the voice-over near the end is not necessarily synced with the plants that are shown at the time.

Real Good Food: “Melted Mozzarella Clumps…”

Stuffed Green Peppers topped with Mozzarella Cheese

Right after I posted this picture on Instagram, my brother, Tack, commented, “Looks like melted mozzarella clumps on top of whatever is underneath, LOL!”

Like that’s a bad thing.

I say bring on the cheese-albeit with a touch of hesitancy.

You see, milk products don’t seem to like me very much anymore.

But I’m taking my time with the break-up 😔

As for the stuffed green peppers, or “bell peppers” as we call them down South, I simply browned up some ground beef, added tomato sauce, seasonings, a smidgen of sugar then double-crammed that beefy goodness into four verdant par-boiled vegetable containers.

As you can see, I topped each pepper with a rather thin slice of mozzarella (I added a bit of grated parmesan prior to that).

So there little bro!

Clumps of mozzarella?

The nerve of that dude!

Anyway, here is a before and after:

 

Oh yeah, I had two extra slices of “mozz” so it turns out that I used 6 slices but who are you to judge me?

Whatevs!

This little “Fun with Mozzarella” endeavor started with the crab stuffed mushrooms from last week, and continued on with the peppers before concluding with the Portabella Mushroom Pizzas pictured below.

Ah…but all cheesy things must eventually come to an end so I decided to go to an old standby–Baked Chicken Florentine.

YAAASSS!

This sistah ain’t NEVER been to Florence, or any other part of Italy for that matter, but that didn’t stop me from piling spinach on top of some chicken and calling it Florentine!

LOL!

Florence, Georgia!  Wherever that is!

Much respect and love to my Italian followers 💋

Behold

 

 

What do you think about the peppers and pizza?  Too much cheese?  No pun intended! LOL!

Much love and light to you all
