WIAW Summer Staples

Well, we are up and moving this morning, and waiting for Tropical Storm/hurricane Isaac to blow our way:/ This is our first hurricane season in Louisiana, and it is starting out strong! Thank you to those who came over yesterday and read up on "Turn The Page Tuesday!" We hope you link up with us next week!! It's Wednesday which means its time to link up with Jenn over at Peas and Crayons! This is the last week of the "Summer Staples", so I am glad I am able to link up!:) 
Like I said last week, my biggest summer staples are fruits and veggies!! My family has about 3 servings of fruits and 2 servings of veggies a day..sometimes more! So needless to say, I love Farmer's Market Time! My husband loves what I come home with, yet he gets the "eye-rolling" going when I ask to stop. In his defense, we have a few different stands in our town, so it usually isn't just one stop;)
We picked up these cherries at Whole Foods this past weekend! If you haven't gotten any this summer, hurry up and grab some! They are to die for!! They aren't so fun cutting up for the boys, but they are a big hit;)
I am in LOVE with these tiny tomatoes! These are perfect for a snack, even for babies! I have given them whole to Eli, and that in itself is awesome!;) I also used them for a Taco Bar!

This is always a staple, no matter what time of year. But, when we are heading out and need a quick lunch, the boys and I dig in. You would think I was dangling meat from a tiger when I pull out a Chobani;) They both crowd around....

This has been a summer lunch staple for sure!!! YUM. Very filling and so delicious. You can buy the couscous at Costco, and since we don't have one, I have my mom bring some when she comes!

***************************************************************
On a funnier note, I wish you could see my boys right now...they are totally breaking it down to Disney Channel "rap":) Yep, I'd say we are ready for Wednesday!;) Praying for all of those in the path of this nasty hurricane! Stay safe!
Tomorrow is new recipe day and a picture update on my sweet boys!!:)

Happy Wednesday to you!

I love farmer's markets as well. It is such a love that when we pick places for vacation I scope out the markets there (you never know what you are going to find).

Hope you have a lovely day :)

Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment! It is so appreciated:)

I am with you, Farmer's markets are a BIG bonus!!:) There is nothing better than getting some home grown produce that you can get back home!

Have a wonderful day!:)
