Well, I never made it.
One of these weeks I will!

I love that veggie recipe LL, I will def try it.
I'm going to hit my regular market tonight and get regular fruits and veggies.
I figure if I buy em, I'll have to eat em, I hate waste!

I got a couple interesting zucchini recipes here, baked with parm, like chips... I'm going to try those as a snack. I also got a granola bar recipe I'm going to try. I need some munchies!

I have 3 in my area, each on different days and I normally hit the ones on Sunday and Wednesday.

This week I got raspberries, blackberries, peaches, corn, carrots, baby zuchini, and tomato.

I love to grill corn and make vegetable salads (without lettuce).

Give this recipe a try. It's easy, colorful & really yummy!

Cut the following into bite-size pieces: 1 medium zucchini, 1 medium summer squash, 1 red bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper, 1 bunch asparagus, 1 red onion.
Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Stir to coat.
Spread out on a jelly roll type pan. Bake 30 minutes @ 450 degrees, stirring occasionally.

I'm really fortunate to live in a community that has 4 different farmers markets (one that has been going strong for over 125 years) and have access to local open farms and orchards. Right now is the most perfect time of the year!

I usually pick up a few things and wing it. However, one of my favorite dinners is grilled corn on the cob with a tomato salad. I add some mozzarella and olive oil to the various heirloom tomatoes I pick up which makes the tomato salad really pretty. It is simple too.

Dreams become reality one choice at a time.

We have a farmers market 20 minutes away Saturday mornings from 8 to noon. I've made it twice this year and I love going. Not only do they have fresh produce but they also have organic meats, homemade baking and lots of other homemade items and crafts. I love browsing the tables looking for the best looking produce at the best price. My favorite thing to buy is the first crop of anything that is out. So yummy. Have fun and share what you found!!

Good morning all!

Our community has a local farmers market every Thursday.
I have yet to make it down there....
I have decided, as part of my MOTIVATE MYSELF plan I will commit to going today!

I'm sure I will find all sorts of yummy, healthy, fruits and veggies!

Do you have a farmers market in your area?
What are your favorite finds?
Does anyone have a quick, simple recipe using some of the farmer market finds?
