Farmers Market

Yes! I am a huge fan of the farmers market.  I love the friendly venders.  The smell of fresh baked bread,yum!! Over time I have found a couple of farmers I favor over others.  I am a huge fan of the local bakery Ibis, and love the pasta stand Pappardelle's.  Today it was lightly raining and way colder than I dressed for so I tried to make my run fast.  One of the farmers I like had great big boxes of sweet potatoes for $17.    So if you are planing to come over for dinner I hope you like your yams.  The other farmer I like, had the largest spaghetti squash I have ever seen. I bought two, I weighed one it was 7 lbs.  These yellow beauties were $5 each.  I also bought some smaller ones for $1 each.  What a deal they are 1.99 a lb on sale at the local grocery.  I was feeling pretty good when the smell of delicious bread crossed my nose. The reason I came to the farmers market in the cold and rain.  They make a bread that I turn into my families favorite french toast.  I bought two loafs one for entertaining tonight. On my way out I had to grab  some speciality pasta.  My food adventure now complete.  If you have not been to your local farmers market, it's time to check it out.  You will find super fresh food. Help the local economy and maybe make some new friends.    Here are websites for my two local venders that are online.  Now you can have a taste of my market.  Share your favorite venders below.

Spicy Ketchup

Ok this is so easy it's almost silly to post.  However people always shocked at how much they like my spicy Ketchup.  So really it is two ingredients and it changes every so often my reasoning is that the hot sauce I use must have a funny name.   The current hot sauce I am using is Bayou Pecker Power, my sister in law purchased for me in Louisiana.  We love sauces and rubs with funny names. If you are having trouble finding a sauce with a great name, I have your solution.  Tijuana Flats has great names for their sauces.  I gave them out as party favors at a mexican party everyone had to announce the name of their sauce.  Lots of laughs.

Now that you have your funny named sauce, Mix it with equal parts of ketchup and stir.  Thats it.  You are ready.  Hope you like it Hot!! Happy Eating.

extra note; I am not coloring your allergy because this recipe is all about what brand you are using.

#30DaysofDinner

Are you looking for a reason to get your family to the table? Need a challenge for some motivation? Dream dinners has just the inspiration you are looking for.  They are having a 30 dinner challenge this month.  I have pledged 3 to 4 days a week.  Normally we have more meals than that together when we are not in a sport season. I love spending time together and sharing food.  My kids are at an age now, that they are happy to try new foods and talk about which preparation is their favorite.  However we are currently in Volleyball.  In the past I have cooked and taken dinner to my kids for a casual picnic.  However this year we are lucky enough to be part of a team that has team dinners on game night.  Keep watching soon it will be my turn for team dinner. I will be posting pictures of my meals, so make sure your follow my social networks so you catch them all.  If you want to join in on the fun.  All of dream dinners instructions are below. 
Happy Eating!
Here’s how it works:
  1. Decide on the number of meals you’d like to share with your family each week during September. Whether you plan on pledging to share 30 homemade meals this month or are looking forward to a family dinner three times a week, you’ll be reaping the benefits of family meals all month long. Share your pledge with friends and family on social media or by posting your goal at Dream Dinners this week during your session.
  2. Share original photos of your family’s meals on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Meals do not have to be Dream Dinners to enter the contest (although we’d love it if you shared those as well) or even homemade for that matter. A special family dinner at a favorite restaurant or a quick meal at the soccer field all count.
  3. Use #30DaysofDinner to enter the contest. On Facebook, post the photo onDream Dinners Facebook and the Dream Dinners-Overland Park page. On Twitter and Instagram, tag @DreamDinners. We’ll be giving away a $200 Dream Dinners gift card each week during September so the more photos you share, the more chances you’ll have of winning!
We’ll be announcing winners each week on Facebook so make sure to like our page! Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest to get meal-planning advice, recipe ideas and more all month long.A reason to get the family back to the table. Dream dinners has a fun contest going on to help motivate you. I am pledging 3 to 4 nights a week. When we are not in a sports season we are able to do more. However with sports I find it hard to get us all together. Often times I cook dinner and take it to the kids at school. However this year we are on a great volleyball team that does team dinners on game night. Keep watching my team dinner night is coming up. I love eating with my family. The older my kids get the more they are willing to try new foods. Now broccoli is a favorite at our house. So follow all my social networks to see pics of all the great food I will be posting the month. And join in the fun.  Below is all the info from dream dinners to join the challage. 

The 30 Day Dinner Challenge gives you the opportunity to focus on spending time as a family around the dinner table during this busy season and no ice bucket is needed. :)

Kansas City Star Article

Check out junkfoodkids in the kansas city star.  It was a very fun afternoon.  We really enjoyed being interviewed by the Newspaper.  It was so nice of them to think of us and they featured one of my recipes.

Cuban Steaks


1 lb. Hormone and antibiotic free thin cut steaks 
1/4 organic sweet onion
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp organic lemon juice
Salt grinder 
pepper grinder

Directions: Your steaks should be cut breakfast steak thickness. I like to have them cut a rump roast for my steaks. I have the butcher cut my steaks so they come out even and saves me time. Take each steak and sprinkle with salt and pepper then pound with a meat tenderizer. Turn steak over and repeat.  Complete this process with each steak. 
Heat olive oil in a skillet until hot,  place steaks one at a time in the skillet and brown both sides.  When this is complete remove steaks and place on a plate together.  Add thin sliced onions to skillet and sauté when they are almost cooked through add lemon juice sauté one more minute and pour liquid and onions over steaks and serve.  This dish goes great with Aunt Gladys' Black Beans.
