WIAW: Farmer’s Market Finds

Hi Friends!

Time for another WIAW post :)


Lots to share with you this week so let’s dive right in!
What have I been eating lately?

LOTS of coffee!

My fav flavors are mint choc chip and pb banana cinnamon
Baked apple cinnamon french toast for a weekend breakfast


Blueberry banana fro-yo for dessert

We went to the farmer’s market on Saturday and loaded up!
I got tomatoes, beans, potatoes and a baguette.
I used the baguette in my overnight baked french toast!

Then we went to another market and stocked up on
Honeycrisp apples- my all-time fav – and lots of bell peppers!
I turned some of the apples into crockpot applesauce.

But the best farmer’s market find was mini bell peppers!
I used them to make a yummy appetizer:

So simple, yet so delicious.
I mixed together goat cheese and pesto,
then stuffed it into mushrooms and mini peppers.
I baked them for 12 min at 400 degrees
And then we devoured them!

Mini peppers are my new favorite thing.

So there you go! I think you’re all caught up!

  3. Will you cook for me? :-) Your posts always inspire me to cook more, and prepare more for the week. I always start off with the best intentions but… well, let’s just say we end up taking out A LOT!

  4. It all looks SO amazing!! I have a couple of questions though …
    What is farro? Did you make the froyo yourself and if so, can you share how you did it (Yours looks SO yummy! I love froyo but am adjusting to newly diagnosed lactose intolerance and miss it a tonne …)

    • farro is a grain! similar to brown rice but chewier. check your bulk bins for it! i love it! as for the fro-yo, it’s not technically fro-yo. it’s just a frozen banana plus a handful of fresh blueberries in a food processor. if you haven’t had banana fro you def give it a try. just freeze a banana in chunks, process until smooth (you may have to let it sit out for a couple minutes) then mix in whatever you want- pb, chocolate chips, fresh fruit, etc!

  5. I love fall farmers markets and veggies and the fact it is NO LONGER 100+ degrees here….

  6. Those goat cheese peppers look great!
    I also can’t wait for the crock pot oats recipe!!!

    Farmer’s markets are winding down around here. I am SO sad to say I didn’t get to a single one this summer. I just realized that and am very disappointed in myself! haha

  9. I was reading your coffee section on this post and came to the “hubby” part about coffee and bagel…but I read it wrong and thought you were implying that he was drinking coffee that was “jalapeno cheddar” flavored. That wouldn’t be so great…lol!

  1. […] You’ve heard of froyo? This is faux-yo! Lindsay mentioned it more in passing in her WIAW this week. She hadn’t mentioned how to make it, but I posted a comment and she let me know […]
