Seasonal Eating

(Fresh ingredients = delicious)
Ah! PRODUCE SEASON! I love the Midwest this time of year. Pretty flowers (check out Monday's post) & delish foods. Nothing beats our farmer's markets. This past week I was able to indulge in some pretty fabulous foods. The best part is that it is all pretty good for you as well. For your viewing pleasure....

First up, lambie chops + orzo & pesto. My mama & paw made this for me when I was in Iowa last week. SO good, fresh, & simple. I ruined that tablecloth later when I knocked over a full bottle of red wine, FYI.

The meal being cooked above in it's completed state. Turkey Burgers Caprese. Again so simple, fresh, & good. Seasoned ground turkiez, fresh mozz, tomatoes in balsamic vin, & fresh basil. Corn on the cobbie completed the meal. I even used FAKE BUTTER on my corn. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter....SPRAY! ZOMG! Ha ha.

I first saw this at my dearest darling Gabby's blog. How had I not heard of blending together such amazingness? AKA, frozen chopped bananas. That's it. ONE ingredient. Probably the creamiest "ice cream" I have ever eaten. Four simple steps:
1. chop bananas
2. freeze chopped bananas for 2 hrs.
3. blend chopped frozen bananas in blender
4. binge eat frozen blended bananas

So, there you have it. An inside look into a few things I consumed last week. Pretty exciting stuff! What's your favorite fresh, healthy food?

Lots of people are eating that banana soft serve. I guess I should try it. I think it would taste strange.

That corn on the cob reminds me of summer! Gotta go find some yummy corn!

I'll have to try the banana soft serve :) I have 4 bananas on my counter right now... one of them is going into the freezer ASAP!

I replied to your comment on my blog. I'm sure we have crossed paths at the farmer's market ;)

I would love a trip to a great farmer's market. Your fresh food looks so yummy, especially those turkey burgers and banana "ice cream". Amazing how frozen bananas can make something so delicious looking!

I am gonna have to try this, based solely on your recommendation. Looks yummy, and so much better than ice cream!
