Around these parts produce is plentiful and the farmer's markets are simply overflowing with all sorts of fresh deliciousness. I just cannot get enough! Derek works in the agriculture sector and we've been getting all sorts of fruits & veggies from his customers and my grandma has been keeping me loaded up with fresh tomatoes and zucchinis.
Tomatoes, zucchini, watermelon, raspberries, cherries & corn on the cob are definitely 'summer staples' in the Vegvacious household....what are the summer must haves in your kitchen??
Here's a quick peek at my eats from yesterday:
Homemade zucchini bread with pomegranate green tea. This zucchini bread is 'da bomb ---- it is one of my favouritist --- yes that it is a word in my world ;-) --- recipes of all time!
For lunch I had some goulash (made just like my daddy-o used to make it), low-fat cottage cheese and a banana and NIAGARA peach for snacks. Oh gosh ---- if you live near Niagara, you must know that these peaches are heaven!! Derek brought them home from a customer's farm on Monday night and I grab one everytime I walk by them. SO. JUICY. SO. SWEET. SO. PERFECT.
A little cheese is a must-have for goulash.
All I had was a light cheese string and it was just the right amount!
Last night I stopped by my grandparents' and they had a big bowl of homemade french onion soup for us to go. It was amazing!!! We topped ours with a toasted piece of Ezekial bread and a sprinkling of cheddar. This is comfort food at its finest.
So there's all the deliciousness that are my eats ---- what have you been noshing on recently? Make sure you check out Jenn's WIAW page for a ton more meal inspiration. Seriously, you could make a year's worth of meal plans out of all the awesome foodie ideas!
