The one downside from making the effort to eat locally grown, whole foods as much as possible is having to wait until Saturdays to visit the farmer's market. Since I didn't go to the market last weekend, I'm pretty much clean out of any fresh produce. Even though I could have stopped in at the grocery store after work, I knew that I would rather wait until the weekend when I can go to the farmer's market and get the freshest produce I can find.
So I came home and made do with what I had on hand, and ended up making this awesome meal that really hit the spot. Click on the title of this post or the "read more" link to see how it all came together.
Now that we're nearing the end of summer (sad, but true) there is a lot of harvesting to be done in gardens everywhere. I almost don't know what to do with it all. Don't be alarmed if, in the next few weeks you see a lot of posting about freezing, canning, or drying foods for winter consumption.
For now, click on the title of this post or the "read more" link below to see a great easy meal I was able to make using only the items I brought home in this picture.
Sweetness is not the only thing you can get from a freshly cut cantaloupe melon. Click the title of this post or the "read more" link to find out what makes the cantaloupe an amazing fruit.

I started this blog after deciding to give up on fad diets, listening to “experts,” counting calories,
measuring, logging, depriving, bingeing, and feeling guilty. All of that only served to make me
bigger, unhealthier, and unhappy. I finally decided to keep it simple: listen to my
own body and eat real food. I
started cooking with ingredients as close to nature as possible and one year later I
feel healthier and happier. I love food and I love cooking it. This blog is an ongoing collection of my new
and favorite recipes. Some, I’ve made
up, but most are inspired by what I see online. Feel free to browse, follow, and leave a
comment! Thanks for reading!
