Bountiful Harvest

I just love this time of year in our town.  We have so many farmer's markets with their locally grown and organic produce to choose from, that every day is a veritable food adventure.  It's really been pushing us to try new and interesting recipes, which I always love sharing here on the blog too.  Another benefit of living in the city is that we've been able to walk to at least two different farmer's markets per week - and the time spent outside with the girls has been so full of happiness and childhood bliss.  I feel like we're making such great memories this summer, and both my stomach and my soul feel so nourished because of it. 

Last night we walked to our one of our favorite farmer's markets (the girls love it because there's always a kid's activity...which is just so thoughtful of the organizers to put together), and Yousuf and I love that there is always a fantastic variety of food to pick from. 

So get this - for under thirty dollars, this is what we brought home:

Kale, blueberries, beets, carrots, blue potatoes, peaches, apples and some cute little patty pan squash.  The baby was free, although I did have the urge to take a nibble out of one her delectable cheeks. 

By the time I had snapped this really not-so-good quality photo, she'd already half-finished a peach.  Which was then followed by the rapid inhalation of blueberries and squash:

I had to stop taking pictures when she made a grab for the carrots and the beets (both of which she managed to take chunks out before Mean Mommy took them away).  I had plans for those!

I hope you're all enjoying your summer as much as we have been.  Here's to long summer days filled with lots of great adventures.  And to fabulous food!
