Life on a little urban homestead in the making, with ideas for self-sufficiency, food preservation, thrifting,
cookery, organic gardening, crafts, DIYing, vintage stuff, and more...

Solar Powered Generators, Garden Tomato Minestrone, Easy Squash Bake


Solar Powered Generators-
I found this new, fascinating line of solar products yesterday at Costco. Great looking stuff. All solar, and flexible systems. Check it out! Goalzero.com No more generators running on fuels that you can run out of, what a great idea!!! Quiet, clean and portable and small items too, for charging phones, tablets, etc.


Garden Tomato Minestrone-
Since I had tons of tomatoes and colder weather was settling in last weekend I made minestrone soup! I used a basic recipe and added lots of home grown organic beauties-


I served cheesy herb biscuits from a Red Lobster mix I saw at the grocery store and decided to try. I added fresh sharp cheddar cheese, then topped with melted butter with the herb packet-

Yummy and good for an emergency biscuit with soup! 



Easy Squash Bake-
Having lots of yellow squash I decide to try this recipe--Peg's Summer Squash Bake I added pepper, thyme and a little salt. Easy and great with the Parmesan cheese! You could use olive oil for a more heart healthy version. Next time I will add some onions and roasted red peppers!!!

Thanks for the link to the solar generator - what a great idea. And that food looks so wonderful! I have one last summer squash and now I know how I'm going to cook it...

Add me to the list of those who are going to try the summer squash bake. Our neighbors just gave us four smallish yellow summer squashes and I think I'll bake them for dinner tonight!

Years ago, our daughter made up her own recipe that almost duplicated, to a "T", Red Lobster's biscuits. They look just like the ones you pictured. You've reminded me I haven't made them in a while.
