We have had nonstop rain here in Lexington which is odd for the summer, but I still managed to make it to the Farmer’s Market 🙂 It was as if the sun popped out just as we were heading downtown.

My plan is to make crock pot ratatouille (I’ve made it before BUT never posted) this week to serve with some orzo I have in the cupboard — so my mission was veggies to compliment it. I can say things work out better when I semi have a plan on what I want to make AS well I’m really trying to not spend more than $20 at the market each week UNLESS if I have to.
We only had two new recipes this week since it was July 4th.
I’ve been wanting to make my own empanada for a minute and I finally did. Naturally this was guided by a recipe by Harmonious Homestead except I didn’t put garlic in the dough and my filling was different. NOW I was worried how it would turn out for my dough was sticky BUT the girls liked them. When I make them again I will make try to figure out the dough issue.. maybe I didn’t let it sit long enough — I’m definitely not the baker but getting better at it.
I tried this Pink Lemonade recipe I saw in All You — it used watermelon to give it flavor. I personally did not like it BUT the girls did. I didn’t boil enough water for I was thinking about halving it but didn’t for the watermelon. I will retry it since the girls liked it so at that point I will post the recipe (have to make sure it turns out right).
