Farmers Market Dinner and “In The Countdown”

Do you ever feel like you are constantly “catching up”? And it is summer…Procrastination is a serious monster!

Well today Savannah, Starr and I are working on cleaning up and packing things up. Do you remember your first year of college and that feeling of packing up and moving out? Savannah is definitely feeling it! I remember the summer before my freshman year of college.. I couldn’t wait for summer to be over! I just wanted to get to school as fast as possible.. although when I got there I was so homesick. But Savannah has me, so I think things will be better for her than they were for me.

We are in the official countdown..5 days until departure! We are planning on leaving early Sunday morning..and hoping to make it to NYC that afternoon…

The other night we had this fresh dinner from our local Farmers Market. (Again, if you follow us on Instagram you may have seen some of these photos)

We made a beet salad which was amazing! We boiled three beets but only for a few minutes so they were still crunchy. Then chop them up, mix with chopped cilantro and sprinkle balsamic vinegar on them. We let this salad sit in the refrigerator for a few hours and then topped with goat cheese when we were ready to eat. This is the perfect summer salad with so many great nutrients!


Steamed Broccoli!


These are the most amazing ravioli! They are usually in our deli department in our grocery store. The red ones are stuffed with butternut squash and the green ones are stuffed with basil pesto.


If you have yet to try orange goat cheese, then it is a must! Or this goat cheese with pine nuts, basil and a little olive oil. You can also see the homemade Farmers Market SourDough Bread 🙂

  1. How long will you take to drive to Fla? Where will you be living? Are you stopping to see Haley?
    Have a wonderful road trip and study hard!

    1. We are thinking that the drive will take us a few days, and we may add in a few stops along the way further down South.. we are playing it by ear 🙂 We will be living on the West Coast of Florida near our schools. Of course, we will definitely stop and say HI to Haley! We will post from the road to keep you up to date!
