They recently added on and it looks amazing inside!
There was lots of great produce to choose from
Their corn is so sweet and delicious!
We grabbed some of their enormous green peppers! I wish I could grow green peppers that big!
Fresh green beans are just so delicious sautéed with a little bacon and onions...mmmmm good
I was so excited to grab 4 bundles of their dried cornstalks to decorate my front porch
My hubby.....was not too excited to put them in the car...they crumble easy and get everywhere. He said, "why are we paying for the farmers garbage"? I said, "oh hun....it will look so cute on the porch and we are supporting the farmer by purchasing any of his goods" Hubby- "grumble grumble" but he put them in the car and he helped me decorate the porch...pictures to come.
He is so awesome :)
Support your local farmers :)

I am trying to find recipes with more protein these days because I've been keeping track of what I eat with the app called my fitness pal and it shows that I eat too many carbs and not enough protein but I. Love. Carbs. How to find foods I like with added protein? I had a hankering for some blueberry pancakes this morning so I did a search for pancakes with cottage cheese and found this one from unfussypicure blog and decided to try it out! DEELICIOUS!!! Really Really good!
It makes a funky batter because there is 1 cup of cottage cheese, 2/3 cup Greek yogurt, 2 eggs, 1 TB melted butter, very little flour only 5 TBS, 1 TBS sugar, and a 1 Tbs lemon juice, lemon peel and a pinch of salt and 1 cup of blueberries that you hand place in the pancakes. I had to add a bit more flour but even still....
Plus my blueberries were huge too! But im telling you they taste sooooo good..a little tangy mixed with sweetness...they kind of reminded me of a blintz.
I tried turning down the heat on the back burners but they did not get that golden color like the ones in the front. I think I just needed to add more flour.
Even though they were hard to flip they were soooo worth making! My hubby LOOOVED them too! I am going to make these again!
Try them out and let me know if you get them to flip easier.

So many peaches...my cute friend Amber who dropped off a bag of fresh peaches on my door step must have given me like 50 peaches! It has been so wonderful to use them in so many different ways this week. Sunday we were having a crowd over for dinner and so why not try out a new recipe?!
