The apple tree here at StoneGable has a story like many things do here. When it was very little an unnamed person living here ran over it with the lawnmower. Ouch! But this stubborn little tree would not succumb to a machine! See how I used apples on the menu this week…
Today our apple tree is a mature and productive tree! And I just can’t wait to make lots of apple recipes from fruit!

What if you would marry ranch dressing with BBQ sauce. Oh, what a great full of flavor sauce to slather on chicken! Thank you, Jennie at The Diary Of A Real Housewife.
I think this BBQ sauce will be a new favorite!
I need you to know two things right off the bat…these are not your mamma’s salmon cakes, and it is okay to use canned salmon! I adore salmon cakes and these are so full of great flavor. I’ll add a little bit of finely chopped red bell pepper to the mix!
What a great recipe from Abrilla from Best Mamma!
THURSDAY- SLOW COOKER DAY
As I often say, we are big soup eaters at StoneGable! And we love to eat soup for dinner. This is a beautiful hearty soup with some really amazing flavors! YUM!
Don’t these enchiladas look just glorious? I really love Tex-Mex food and my fav is a great enchilada! Can’t wait to make this recipe from Nagi from Recipe Tin Eats!

Tilapia has gotten a bad rap in the last couple of years because of the unsanitary ways tilapia is farm raised. If you are careful about where you buy this fish and know how it is raised it is wonderfully delicious!
This is such an easy recipe! Thanks, Nehu, at Whisk Affair!

This chicken is an easy meal and another Pantry Meal! Pantry Meals are dinners I can put together with what I usually have in my pantry, frig and freezer! Who doesn’t love French Onion Soup? Add chicken and this looks so yummy!
