It’s National Farmer’s Market Week!
On Sunday, my family and I ventured down to Findlay Market in honor of National Farmer’s Market Week (Sunday was also National Watermelon day - coincidence?). Did you know such a thing existed? Well the folks we ran into did because it was packed! Findlay Market is an icon here in Cincinnati, and we just haven’t taken the time to explore it before now. We always hear great things about it, and the state’s oldest market did not disappoint.
I’ve been all about trying new things over the last few years (before that, I was pretty plain jane) so I had a fish taco (with wonderfully seasoned tilapia and some amazing radish - sour cream - something else sauce on top)….and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Findlay Market is a beautiful place with a delicious, inviting, and entertaining environment. Check it out for yourself if you haven’t made it down there yet.
Here are a few pics from our adventure. Enjoy! :-)
A Recipe for Fast and Fancy
This was too good not to share. I am always, always, ALWAYS on the hunt for quick, easy, and delicious recipes for dinner. Not too much to ask, right? I also love seafood. Grilled salmon has been on my cook-at-home radar for quite some time….but, honestly, I hadn’t mastered a method to keep it really tender. One day, I thought - a glaze will fix that! Followed by…..how the heck do I make a glaze? Well a little Google search and a few tweaks to several recipes fixed that.
- 2 fresh Salmon fillets (I haven’t prepared more than two at a time yet)
- dash of garlic powder and lemon pepper on top
- brush lightly with olive oil
- 3 tablespoons of light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup of Dijon Mustard
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
I used a Foreman grill and this recipe literally took all of 10 minutes including prep time. Salmon needs to go on the grill for about 3-4 minutes, depending on the temp setting. Pour about 1/2 of the glaze on the salmon while it’s on the grill, and the rest once it’s done. Just make sure it cooks all the way through but doesn’t get too done (this is one you shouldn’t walk away from).
Does it get any more perfect? I should have also taken a pic once I cut into the salmon because it just fell apart. So, so good. I ate mine with chopped salad with sweet onions and blue cheese.
If you try it, let me know what you think.
Most of you know I’ve been taking swim lessons this summer with Ava. Well *hopefully* I’ll get to share the experience and story with you all on News 5 sometime soon (here’s a snapshot of a big post-lesson reveal; here’s a hint, it’s not pretty). If not, I will upload my pics and videos here so that you guys can get a recap of this amazing journey. Do you know how to swim? If not, what’s been holding you back? A big part for me is represented above - my HAIR. #notworthit #iamnotmyhair #swimsafety #learntoswim #breakthestigma
Grand opening….grand closing. Final day anchoring the morning show with Todd and I’m thankful for every minute of it. I learned so much (mostly from him) and overcame new obstacles and challenges that I wouldn’t have faced otherwise. Growth is not optional, it is necessary. Thank you all for your words of encouragement and support. Believe - no matter what anyone says - that what He has for you, is for you. #faith #determination #perseverance #tv #media #news #anchorlife #wlwt #cincinnati
People wonder how I can get up so early everyday and be so happy in the morning. This face, even when tired at 4am in the dressing room, is full of unspeakable Joy.
‘I could go on, and on, and on…..about your works…..’ 🙌
