It’s Saturday morning and I have already done so much! I figured I better get my errands done before the heat comes. At 7am this morning it was already 80 degrees out. I was going to exercise, but decided on heading to the Farmers Market and Trader Joe’s instead. I like to go early because both places aren’t so busy. I’m also writing my blog at 11:00am which is totally early for me because I think my Husband and I are having a date today. Crossing fingers.
I have to tell you I really am happy to be home. I missed cooking, writing my blog and relaxing with my family. I am in such a great mood today! When I was driving to the Farmer’s Market, I opened all the windows in the car, blasted some Metallica and was singing like a teenager. It’s fun to be all wacky and everything!! So first stop is Farmers Market, here is what I bought!
I think I did pretty good. Everythng cost me $27,00. I bought some nice peppers, fresh peaches and nectarines, a crap load of strawberries and cherries. I also got some nice green beans. I normally grow them in my garden, but there a pain to pick so I skipped them this year. I also got some 8 ball zucchini squash and 3 ears of fresh corn. My poor Husband, I am on such a veggies kick this week!!!
Next stop Trader Joe’s.
I didn’t get too much, but I spent $80.00. There’s a new item in there, so you’ll have to check out the Trader Joe’s page, I updated it this morning. You would think I would have spent more since I haven’t grocery shopped in a couple of weeks, but I did got to TJ’s 3 times this week to pick up some odds and ends.
Now to recap this weeks recipes.
Sunday – Peaches and Cream Smoothie, this is an amazing drink. It tastes like your drinking fresh peaches. I love it and my Husband did too!!
Monday – Vanilla Frozen Yogurt : This tastes so good straight from the ice cream maker. Going to try it with adding some vodka to it to see if it softens it up a bit after I freeze it.
Tuesday – I’m back: My trip to Germany and Paris – Love my trip but I am so happy to be home!
Wednesday – Corn Chowder: I love is soup. I got some comments that the weather is to warm for soup, but honestly that day it was chilly and rainy, perfect soup day. This soup is so sweet. I froze the leftovers and plan on updating it with some extras.
Thursday – Fresh Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes: This dish made Food Buzz’s top 9 on Saturday. I am so pleased with that! I feel like I won a Grammy award when I make the top 9! Oh and oven roasted tomatoes tastes AMAZING!!!
Friday – Chocolate Coconut Banana Cream Parfait – This dessert is amazing, better than I thought it would be. My family loved it!! This is one I will make again and again!! You have to try the coconut cream, it’s so easy and thick and delish!!
Saturday – Blueberry Muffin Smoothie – I love this smoothie, it’s so simple and tastes delish!! The hint of cinnamon and the added yogurt was perfect!!
This was a fun week for cooking, but I have a feeling next week will be even better!! Time for me to update my recipe page and then bug my Husband to do something today.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
P.S. Don’t forget to check out my Trader Joe’s page. There are a few new awesome items!
