A Colorful Afternoon

by HEAB on April 19, 2011


I know what you’re thinking…there HEAB goes again…eating colorless bowls of baby pooh. Hey now, in my defense, at least I didn’t blend it all together. 😉

I know, it doesn’t look very appealing, but trust me, it was tasty. You’re dying to know what’s in there, aren’t you? No? Haha, well, I’ll share anyway. Quinoa and frozen peas cooked in my rice cooker and stirred together with shredded chicken, Mama Pea’s Mmmm Sauce, and lots of pepper. I tweaked the Mmmm sauce, using black beans since I had no chickpeas and 2 TBSP bacon drippings instead of the canola oil. It was so good, and I can’t wait to eat more for lunch today.

In more colorful news, I joined Heather from Kiss My Broccoli at the Nashville Farmer’s Market yesterday. Summer was mesmerized by her…


Notice Summer is missing a sock. For some reason, she always takes at least one sock off, and I’ve given up trying to keep both of them on her. I’ve accepted the fact that it’s her look – like Michael Jackson’s glove.



Such a fun afternoon, and I can’t wait to take Summer back when she gets a bit older for some lessons. In my mind, I was thinking about all the different things I could teach her just by walking through the market: colors, the different fruits and veggies, numbers, and why mommy sometimes smells a bit off…

Do you shop at your local farmer’s market? It’s something I hope to do more often.
