8/5/15 Farmers Market-Crock Pot Ribs and Peach Cake

8/5/15 Fort Bragg Farmers Market + Crock Pot Ribs+Peach Cakes

We just went to the Fort Bragg Farmers Market. I really love going and seeing what each farmer brings to the market, even if we only spend very little buying 1-2 things. Today I bought 2 loaves of bread from the Fort Bragg bakery. Their bread is local made and really good. I bought their Caspar Country sourdough and a mini sourdough torpedo loaf. I bought the torpedo loaf 2 weeks ago and we all liked it.

Here are some pictures of the loaves I bought.

I love seeing all the veggies that are locally grown and flowers and such. I took a whole bunch of great HD photos with my husbands old phone. And I cannot wait to share them all. I love markets and I love supporting our local farmers. I took some pictures, of veggies I loved to see. Of stands I thought were beautiful and even some other things, I was ‘walk by’ taking photos so they do not all show the stands sign, although I tried to include it in some.

Here are my farmers market shots from today.

This morning I put our last package of meat, a huge short rib cut, into the crock pot on high. I kept turning it until it was cooked. They cooked so well in the crock pot, that by the time we got home from the farmers market, it was falling off of the bones. I was able to scoop out all the meat and broil it in the cast iron for a few to get a char and all the bones were extracted easily.

Here are some pictures of the meat in the crock pot to the cast iron to setting it out with the bread that I got from the market.

We also bought a box of rice o’ roni on request from my husband, since the box pasta was un-edible, he wanted a name brand, I don’t blame him. We have been out of our normal carbs for a while. I made the rice and set it out with the meat and bread. It looked like a dinner that was a first week of food dinner, not the last week of food dinner. I am saving the other larger loaf for breakfast for the boys in the morning.

I only have 5 more days till we get food stamps again, so I love it when I stretch out the meat till the next allotment. I will try and make the breakfast sausage I have last the next few days and the rib leftovers will stretch too. I am sure that we will enjoy the market bread for a few days, so it was nice to save some leftover EBT food stamp market chips for this week. I changed in 15$ worth of food stamps about 2 weeks ago and saved 7$ for today.

Before we went to bed I had another baking experiment. I made some peach cake. With the experience I had earlier in the day, I thought I could make a pretty decent cake in the same way as scones, but with slightly different ingredients. Earlier today I made a really awesome batch of cherry scones for breakfast, but I wanted dessert after dinner.

I assessed the ingredients in the cupboard. I had a can of peaches, some whole wheat pastry flour, some waffle mix, baking powder and brown sugar. I thought in the right amounts that would equal some pretty decent peach cakes, the waffle mix making up for not using white flour and sugar would help a lot I thought. And they turned out really good.

Another thing I had to use and I used in the wet part of the mix was some sour cream. The wet mix was sour cream, peaches, vanilla extract, brown sugar, and an egg. They turned out really good and I will include some pictures of them next. Its what I am eating right now, before bed. Not too sweet because its only brown sugar, and yummy with peaches in every bite.
