Happy Sunday you all!
It comes to another happy Sunday for me and I hope everyone is feeling the same.
Sunday is the day when I look forward to:
- posting something good on my blog
- saying “HI!” to all of you here
- spending my morning with friends and a someone special.
- having a cup of coffee
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and summer. It is such a great summer here in Chicago, not too hot at all. We had a few days of 95 degrees, but other than that is super nice and cool.
One thing I think about in the summer time is Green City Market. It is farmers that provide a marketplace for purchasing fresh locally grown healthy foods to all members of the community. There are so many fresh fruits; some of them are my favorite and some of them I have never heard before, such as Ground Cherry and Bubblegum Plum.
Ground Cherry is the fruit that grows inside a paper (husk/ looks like tomatillos from the outside, but smaller). They are tart-sweet berries good for pies, preserves, jams, also as a topper for a breakfast bowl (granola, oatmeal, or smoothie bowl) to give the sweetness and providing some balance to the bowl.
Bubblegum plum, also referred to as Toka plum, is one that I absolutely liked from the first bite. It is sweet and a little tart from the skin then you get the aftertaste of bubble gum flavor.
I brought some goodies home such as mushrooms, and in my mind I note that I will make something good out of these fresh organic mushrooms. You will never go wrong with mushrooms as they are so versatile; you can throw them in a stir-fry, a fried rice, soup, salad or a pasta. Since I have some leftover mascarpone in my fridge the answer is easy to go for pasta.
This recipe I adapted from Jamie Oliver With this recipe, you can whip up a delicious dinner meal in no time. I love the creaminess of the sauce of which the mascarpone cheese helps by also adding some thickness. The spinach and mushroom add in a fresh and healthy feeling when you have that thick of a sauce with your dinner.
I hope you all enjoying your Sunday,

"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. That's the burden.Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us" Bones
