Torbay Farmers Market

Today I went to the Torbay Farmers Market with my family to buy vegetables.  It was a beautiful sunny day.  When we got there I saw a farmer with vegetables that were in baskets and plastic bins.  Before we bought the veggies we had some fun.

We went inside and looked around.  Mom and dad sampled the sweet and sour turnip & carrot relish.  They liked it and bought a jar.  I waited until we got home to taste it.  It smelled sour.  I tasted it and it was too, too sour!  I think they put too much vinegar and not enough sugar.  Look at my face it looks sour just like the relish.  I look funny.

While we were still at the market we went and had some lunch.  We ate healthy all week and today I had a treat.  The men had a little food trailer with pizza cones, chips, and candy bars.  It had a microwave and speakers too.  I had a BBQ chicken pizza cone.  It was cool!  The pizza dough was shaped as an ice cream cone.  They stuffed BBQ chicken, cheese and sauce into the cone.  They heated it in the microwave. I found out they put spicy in the sauce, but it was still good.  Here is a picture of me with the pizza cone.  I think I will try to make this myself on my youtube video, but I will not have it spicy.

I also had cupcake on a stick.  It was a mini chocolate cupcake with blue icing and sprinkles and one M&M on top.  It smelled awesome and looked delicious!  I gobbled it up in two bites.  There was no sour in this cupcake so that was good.  It was all sweet. 
Here is me and my brother, Alexander.  He was tired and fussy so he wouldn't smile for the picture. 

Before we left we went back to the farmer and bought kale and I picked out a bunch of beet.  I wonder what we can make with it.  I will talk to my dad to see what I can make with the beet.  I hope he will let me use the stove for the first time.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

My Pinterest Inspired Asian Meal

This is a meal that we had last week that was entirely planned using Pinterest.  Thoe of you who know me well are well aware of my addiction to Pinterest.  Yes, addiction.  It has even been said that I need a Pin-tervention.  :)   I cannot help it though, I not only enjoy looking for recipe this way, but I have found it very helpful in meal planning.  I now even have weekly menu boards created on Pinterest to organize my weekly meal plans.  It has become a great tool.  So I guess you could say that this meal, in a small way, does prove that I actually do make recipes that I find on there. :)   Anyway, I was in the mood for a different kind of bbq meal so I choose to make Asian Grilled Drumsticks, Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw, Tricolor Thai Salad with Zucchini & Yellow Squash, and plain white rice.   Early in the day I put the salads together and because there were so many vegetables it involved a bit of prep work.  Plus l thought it would be a good idea to get the vegetables maridnad…
