Blueberry oatmeal muffins

I got some organic blueberries on super sale at the farmers market last weekend and we’ve already eaten most of them right out of the package but I wanted to save some back for some blueberry muffins. 



These are super delicious- a great grab-and-go breakfast or snack option when you’re in a hurry!  Also, I’ll never buy supermarket blueberries again after trying these from the farmer’s market. So. Much. Better!

Farmer’s Market Fun

Sarah + Farmer’s Market = one VERY happy vegan!!

I think this is the first time I’ve been to a farmer’s market since I’ve been a grown up.  My mom used to drag take us to this little farm stand place in Cleburne all the time when we were kiddos.  And there’s a produce place here in Joshua (Parks Produce), but he doesn’t always have a huge amount of stuff and most of it’s not local.  But the guy that owns it is really nice and I shop there quite often, because even if his produce isn’t always local I’m still supporting a local business and that makes me happy. 

But it’s nothing like the experience you get at a real live farmer’s market!  It wasn’t ginormous but it was pretty awesome.  (top secret vegan fact… we don’t need to do drugs- we get plenty high when we come upon mass quantities of beautiful vegetables!!)  Oh what fun I had wandering and looking at all the pretty veggies and handmade goods.  And ALL of the stuff there is all produced within 150 miles of Fort Worth- ALL completely local stuff!  I also got some advice about my zucchini from a nice farmer dude(I’m having trouble with my poor little zucchini plants!).  He said that a good organic fertilizer for your plants is coffee grounds- anyone know anything about this?  I might give it a try and see what happens.

Anyway, I could have very well bought everything.  Yes that’s right- I said everything!  ;)  But alas, I’m not made of money, so I stuck to around $30 worth of goodies.  And here’s what I got for my moo-lah…



These are the BEST blueberries I’ve ever had!  I’m serious.




Green tomatoes!  I’ve already made fried green tomatoes- recipe coming soon!!



Homemade jams!!  I don’t know what I thought I would need Jalapeno Raspberry jam for, but I just couldn’t resist!  And who doesn’t love blackberry jam?!  I think I’m going to be busting into this one in the morning!  Nom nom nom!



Bell peppers.  I have some growing in my little garden, but they’re not quite ready yet.  These’ll tide me over until they are hopefully.




mmmmm!  Peaches!  They taste like little pieces of heaven!  (I’ve already used most of them actually- we chowed down on a blueberry peach cobbler about an hour ago and it was fantastic!)




My little okra plant has only given me three little okras so far, and they’re hanging out in the freezer waiting for more of their friends to join the party.  So until then, some lovely okra from the farmer’s market will have to do!



Same thing goes for my zucchini and squash.  I think the summer heat is just eating them up- they shrivel up and die before they are getting a chance to get much bigger than a few inches.  Poor little things!



All in all I had a fun afternoon- after I got home and unloaded all my goodies I made some fried green tomatoes and a blueberry peach cobbler.  Then did a little homework.  And now I’m listening to all the stupid people with their fireworks and the poor dogs are going nuts.  I love 4th of July but I hate fireworks. 

Anyhoo- new recipes coming soon.  Get excited!
