Pinteresting Dinners and Breaking the Farmers Market Fast

Farmers markets and “pinteresting” dinners. That was my weekend. Oh, and rehearsing for this ;)

Saturday morning I broke my Winter-long Farmers Market fast with my first trip of the season. We stocked up on veggies…

…and farm fresh turkey eggs.

National Pecan Day was celebrated…

…and I finally got around to making some dishes from my massive Pinterest collection! Saturday night was all about the Detoxinista starting with this delicious Red Pepper Cheese Sauce over zucchini noodles and ending with the un-pictured (but extraordinary) Almond Flour Sugar Cookies. I was unfortunately reminded of how difficult nuts can be to digest however, maybe one (not three…) would have been kinder to my system.

Tonight I attempted a version of these roasted sweet potatoes that were slightly disappointing. They were still tasty (can you really mess up a sweet potato) but not as crispy-on-the-outside-soft-on-the-inside as promised. I made mine with coconut oil, organic butter, and sugar-free maple syrup.

And now, after a weekend of beautiful sunshine, I’m already missing the rain because I can’t stop listening to this

  1. So glad you enjoyed the cheese sauce and cookies! I have a hard time stopping before three cookies myself…

    And I can totally relate to the massive build-up of Pinterest ideas. I don’t think I’ll ever get to try them all! But I will try. :)
