    I was in the nursing profession many, many, years ago. When the nursing staff was allowed to take a lunch break, I would meander down to our hospital cafeteria and order up one of these sandwiches. Of course, the cafeteria chefs had a special "seasoned grill" that punctuated years and years of cooking delectable delights, the way it used to be cooked, without the use of microwaves, and or already prepared, “boiled - in - the - bag” foods that came from “Sysco”. These amazing chefs even had special spatulas that you could easily imagine the pounding and flipping going on, being delicately tossed in the air, as somehow this made the food taste even more spectacular. After paying for the sandwich, I would sit down, and carefully open the wrapper, and inhale the aroma of freshly cut ham, the sweetest, most soft bread that I have ever known, and the mixture of ham juice and a bit of butter that warmed the ham prior to marrying with the bread. Needless to say, I always looked forward to this break, and on the occasion of visiting this hospital even today, I reflect back on those days of good ol’ cooking as it used to be, and the delights these very special chefs produced. To this day I still make these at home, occasionally for lunch or a quick dinner. After the cafeteria chefs put this yummy sandwich together they would wrap it in (1) wax paper (2) then aluminum foil. By the time you got to your table, the tastes had developed and probably steamed in the combination of wax paper and foil. Either way, I guess these magical chefs will never be forgotten as this made my day complete, every single day. I hope you enjoy this sandwich as much as I. Try the wax paper and foil too, [if you have time].....you will see what I'm talking about.

    You could hear the lunch bell ring from all the way over at the barn. Dong! Dong! Dong! "It's time for lunch!" Jerry shouted. He jumped down off the tractor and headed for the old pickup truck. "Whata we having?" yelled Bubba. Dennis smiled, "We having that lip smacking good chicken with that sauce!" Everyone piled into the back of the truck and made their way to the table, it was piled high with tasty chicken, sauce in a gravy ladle and some nice red tomatoes. Hurry up and pass that down here...Granddad boldly nodded. Feel free to add the sauce to potatoes or vegetables as suggested by Jen T who must be a genius! Thanks, Jen! But most of all *enjoy* and gather around the table and rest a spell.

    Recipe #219277

    "Found em!" I shouted to anyone that might be hovering near the country road mile we live on. A light rain shower just started, and there I was standing in the garden hunting down the last tomato that might be hiding. I found a couple of tomatoes nestled down beneath the sweet potato vines, large pepper plants leaves, and the numerous weeds that had continued to sprout even in the cool Fall weather. Mud was already caked to my old garden crocs, and my hands were also full of mud. Dexter the Mastiff sat quietly beside me, and was trying to stare down a brown caterpillar that was making it's way slowly across the earth. I turned, quickened my step down the dirt road with the dog beside me, carrying a half of dozen various sized tomatoes tettering in my arms and trying not to drop any along the road to home. I really wanted some tomato soup, and I just knew it would warm me up and Dex too. This recipe uses canned tomatoes, or you can use fresh ones too, like I did. I just peeled the tomatoes, put em' in the pot and went right along with the recipe from there. This recipe was loosely adapted from Cooks Illustrated.

    Recipe #333005

    An old farm recipe, updated to today's fast paced life.

    Recipe #201218

    This is a personal recipe -- tried and true -- made time and time again. I use this in the good ol summa' time, but can be used during the rest of the year as well. Normally, I buy "cold steamed blue crabs" from our local fish market, that are bursting with flavor after resting in the unique Maryland seasoning. I pick the meat, and make this cooling, refreshing salad. It is also great served on a saltine or toast points. Usually though, I just place atop a garden fresh lettuce leaf, and grab a cracker or two with it. If you get the time, marinate the crab meat in 1 tablespoon of Italian dressing for about 1 hour prior to gently folding together. If you don't get the time, that's okay too! Just *enjoy* You can substitute lobster, shrimp, or even conch meat.

    Recipe #225028

    Life can't be about all beef. "Where's The Beef?" questions are fewer nowadays due to an influx of health concerns, as well as those that are watching their weight. The Longmeadow Farm is following suit and will openly and warmly embrace these new "burgers" to grace our "Saturday Lunch at the Farm" crowd. I wanted to produce a light(ish) tuna burger that made Dennis, Jerry, Uncle Dick, and my Dad feel as light as a Spring beetle floating around on a wind current after lunch. This recipe did it. Everyone was full, but not so full they wanted to clamber off to the backyard hammock, and pull their hat over their face. This gave them enough energy to have their giddy-up for all the many maelstroms that would undoubtedly follow them around for the afternoon. Go ahead, try them "Maryland" style with the use of our beloved "Old Bay Seasoning" and get ready to work hard this afternoon. Can be easily doubled for a big crowd.

    Recipe #282447

    Longmeadow Farm is trying something new. I feel inspired to make a nice warm treat, one that is a little less caloric but still captures that down on the farm taste. This recipe was adapted from a blog "Culinary Adventures" and since I had some canned pumpkin in the old pantry, I considered, and pondered and thought what the heck! After all, I don't need to be looking like one of our beautiful cows, "Flossy" as she is about ready to calve. And besides, it would be nice to fit into a smaller size overalls for the farm chores. Please note, my oven bakes these in exactly 15 minutes. I also have a pizza stone that stays put in the oven all the time, and radiates the heat a bit more. However; you may have to adjust baking times up or down depending on the accuracy of your oven. Most people are stating the 18 minute mark. I use the toothpick method of sticking it in the middle of the muffin to check for doneness. If it comes out clean, then your in business. Also note: I make these now for my vegan son, using a cake mix that is only soy and wheat based and a special dark chocolate that does not contain any dairy or eggs as well. For fun and frolic, I give em' a boost of sprinkled powdered sugar on the top.

    Recipe #281279

    You can smell the bacon from the outside the house. Fall is approaching and the wind has picked up a little bit, and a nice breeze is blowing from the south, which in turn transfers the aroma of fresh bacon right out the window and into your nose. Dennis was wondering what was going on, after all, it was the middle of a fall afternoon. The door creaks open, Dennis slips off his boots, hangs up his hat on the pegged hanger, and rushes into the kitchen. I turned around to greet him with a smile, and laughing at his questioning look, I tilt my head and say, "It's bacon Dennis!" "I know, I know...." tests Dennis with a small voice. Dennis loves bacon. He will eat a couple of pieces a day, that would be, if I let him. I decided I would at least bring some healthfulness to him, and something tasty at the same time. One piece of bacon, wrapped in a tortilla, (or pita for that matter) with an abundance of lettuce, tomato, and special spritely green onion with a spot of cheese dotted on the top would be the answer to his dream.

    Recipe #254176

    This recipe was saved from many years ago (35) when my then future MIL and I would enjoy a cool, refreshing "time-out" on her screened in porch. Never finding tuna in a can" or a tuna from "anywhere" to be especially great tasting, particularly to my immature palette (I was probably 19 yers.old) I would hem and haw about how I was already full, wasn't hungry, etc...etc...until one day, I thought I would take the plunge and just eat it. And it was as delightful as promised. Maybe it was the time spent with this woman that had such an impact on my life, maybe it was the summer breeze softly making the wind chimes "tinkle" in the distance, either way, I have loved this method of making this simple sandwich ever since. So with great fondness for a great woman, I present to you, the reader, Catherine-Anne's simply lovely tuna salad.

    Recipe #364964

    The back door swings shut with a loud bang, people are balancing fresh back porch iced tea in frosty glasses, with ice tinkling and bobbing around, in one hand. In the other hand, clutched tightly; holds a sandwich that heralds the start of the long hot summer. A big shade tree has several old lawn chairs randomly placed beneath it, and our friends hurry to plop down, with a sigh of complete satisfaction as they begin devour their pleasurable, but simplistic tomato sandwich, and sip the sweet iced tea.

    Recipe #240744

    Typically, at the end of a long Saturday, after the farm has been put to bed, I bake these little focaccia delights. The bread usually fills the empty pockets of hunger that have made themselves known during the long afternoon. Sometimes I prep the dough the night before, or quite often, just plop the bread and make it pretty quickly. We usually sit around the wood stove, and devour a couple of pieces with some nice warm tea, or a cold beer, depending on how much we broke on the farm during that afternoon. Either way, enjoy, have fun, and always eat well.

    Recipe #267632

    Simple and totally easy to prepare. Works well as a quick side for meatloaf, hamburgers, or Salisbury Steak, or just plain steak!

    Recipe #221299

    Cucumber with sour cream and chives.

    Recipe #424790

    As the new snow blew in from the ol' North, it appears to be just a delightful day for the birds outside who are eating, and scattering seed everywhere to beat the band. Hundreds of birds gathered to fight over their bird seed, and the squirrels are starting to get into the act as well. I can see the deer moving in from the now snow white meadow to make their bellies plumb from eating extra corn at the full corn cribs. I just finished supplying the cattle with their sweet hay which is placed in their feeders, and calves were sleeping away after gorging on mother's milk. Everyone is fed. Good! Feeling rather proud at fulfilling the many needs of hungry animals and birds on the farm, I ponder for a minute, thinking "what can I feed us today"? Dennis reminds that he hasn't eaten since early in the morning and his stomach is growling like a lone tiger waiting for some action. Nope, can't forget Dennis....so I ran to the kitchen to see what I could scratch up. A potato left over from potato salad that had already been boiled, fresh bacon and fresh eggs. I set out to put this easier then hanging wash on the line during a breezy day recipe. Quick as winking your eye, and you have a platter of goodness right before your eyes. Which reminds me now, just where did Dennis go, oh, wait a minute....he's right here. Dennis has a *cute* habit of coming up behind and scaring me a lot. And this was gonna be one of *those* days.

    Recipe #270058

    John T. Edge, Burgers: An American Story, Putnam 2005- Adapted from this wonderful story teller, perfect for picnic or nice luncheon burger. Normally we serve this with a big bowl of pass around potato chips, ice cold pickles, and a large wedge of fresh tomato. Soft buns are best, but toast works equally as well.

    Auntie Ann spent many years working as the Research Editor of the National Geographic in Washington D.C. She also had a beautiful house facing the water in St. Michaels, Maryland. Quite often she had gatherings of all sorts. From the Washington set, dressed up dignitaries and special guests would arrive for a nice Friday evening cocktail party that included a nice dinner afterward. During her weekends in St. Michaels, she could relax sitting comfortably on a wicker chair facing the Harris Creek watching the swans swim to and fro in the water. Even though Auntie Ann had a busy productive life as an editor and another busy life on the shore, her cooking skills were perfection. Often during a cocktail party she would mix up (the day prior) a good amount of this dressing and ever so lightly, and daintily spoon this over some fresh salad greens and toss. When she was getting ready to have the Labor Day crowd in for some good old "Maryland Blue Crabs" at her home on the shore, she would use this dressing in a simple pasta salad, that could be kept outside longer as it didn't have any mayonnaise or dairy in it to spoil. I use this now for "Saturday Lunch on the Farm" salad, which has become a huge bowl of all kinds of lettuces, fresh cut up vegetables and olives. Hey you can't go wrong with Auntie Ann can you? After all; life is good when partaking of a salad, isn't it? Can be easily halved.

    Recipe #284322

    A great marinated feta cheese cube(s) with all time wonderful coriander, peppercorns, capers, and bay leaves. Thyme also included on warm toasts. *Time* for cooking does not include marinate time.

    Recipe #272181

    When Friday morning rolls around we on the farm rejoice -- and although for us this isn't the end of the week, (our Saturdays are really busy) there is a certain celebratory aura that overtakes us. This egg sandwich was the brain child of Giada De Laurentiis but adapted for fast paced life here on the farm. I often make my own sauce from the summer tomatoes, but please use any sauce you have on hand. So with a full stomach Dennis heads out the door to face the day, when he gets home later on the day, we have a Saturday to go through. Awwww.....life is good.

    Recipe #284613

    The horse trailers were puling into the lot behind our church. It was a huge, long lot that was approximately 2 acres, and would house horses, their trailers, their owners and riders, and a large jumping course that would provide lots of fun and frolic for 2 days. My mother was in charge of the food supply, and early in the morning she made large, bubbling pots of "Sloppy Joes' a la All Saints!" I know we must of had at least 10 dozen rolls, and probably 25 lbs. of ground beef, large cans of tomato sauces, fresh tomatoes, and V8. Anyway you make these, they are 100% real from our horse show. The only thing missing is the peppermint stuck in the lemon.
