Our last week in Branson was a blast! We made sure to hit up all the local attractions before we headed out west. Branson is known for their live shows and we were lucky enough to check out a few of them including The Price is Right LIVE.
Harper could care less about winning a new car, she was all about the pretty model’s sparkly dresses :)
Branson also has a fun theme park called Silver Dollar City. They have everything from rides, to live entertainment to crafty souvenirs. It’s a great place to run around and enjoy yourself for the day (even when it’s 102 degrees!).
Finally, no trip to Branson would be complete without a ride on the ducks. And I’m not talking about the ones that go “quack”. I’m talking about the amphibious vehicles that were made famous during WWII. This is Harper’s second time this summer riding a duck. First as a viking during our trip to Ireland…
Being a tourist is fun!
And of course we spent lots and lots of time with family. Including, Harper’s new BFF, her Great Uncle John…
Harper and I are sure going to miss Branson, but are looking forward to another visit real soon :)
But enough about me, let’s talk veggies.
Last week we had a total of 13 link ups. And to be frank, it’s summer produce at it’s best. One of my favorite summer veggies is sweet corn. And when you throw fresh kernels into a fresh batch of batter and deep fry it, the result is pure bliss. (Speaking of deep frying, did you check out these crispy fried shallots? The Angels are definitely singing for this one…). Or you could toss it with some zucchini, leeks and a handful cheese and you got yourself an awesome summer pizza. Oh, the possibilities :) A big thanks to everyone who participated. I just can’t get enough or your CSA goodness.
And because I am feeling extra sweet today (and in need of a sugar fix), here are some of my favorite CSA inspired desserts (in alphabetical order…). Enjoy!
Your turn: What are some of your favorite ways to incorporate your CSA fruits and veggies into simple and sinful desserts? Looking forward to drooling over your ideas.
