It's about that time of year where lots of this happens:
Rugging up, watching fun things (in this case, River Cottage Spring!) and a hell of a lot of crochet. I've got the biggest to-do list and I've not even made anything for my own baby yet! Must get cracking as I've only got 8 or so weeks left. But I'm getting very, very, very tired ;-/
Anyhow, yesterday I decided to check out the Yandina markets, as I'd never been. I usually go closer to home but on a Noosa chef's recommendation, I checked it out. I am SO glad I did!
The produce was so gorgeous and fresh, and it was hard to choose which stall to go to! I ended up getting a little from everywhere. This whole haul cost me less than $40 and should do us nicely this week, although I will need some more bananas. My meal plan is very much based on what I found there. I also got some gorgeous olives and handmade pasta.
Speaking of find, I also picked up this authentic '80s Care Bear for $3! It's in wonderful condition and there were two of them. There was a LOT of cool trash and treasure at these markets, tons of stuff I will be filling bags with next time I go. It's like time has stopped out there and cool things have just been waiting for me to come along and collect them! I also bought a gorgeous little pearl and silver antique pendant for $7. A vintage globe has my name on it for next week. I almost spent the fruit + veg money on trinkets.
Anyhow, onto this week's meals:
* fettuccine with asparagus, pea and mint
* cannellini bean and haloumi salad with roasted tomatoes and kale
* Schnitzel with roasted pumpkin, potato, parsnip, and a pea puree
* Soba noodle stir fry
Pretty easy stuff, but pretty delicious too. I'm going to play around with sundried tomato, feta and kale savoury muffins, and make some date and coconut balls for the baby.
