Ready for rain

Anyone else ready for that first rainstorm of the season? I know my mountian biking buddies are!

How’s everybody doing with the new hours at the Morro Bay farmers market? It’s been a bit challenging from my end to adjust but adjust I shall! I hope it’s taking some stress off the farmers trying to make it to the downtown SLO market in time.

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria:

1. Moonstone Chili (I named it that cause I think the beans I use (black beans, adzuki beans and beluga lentils) look like the rocks of moonstone beach)).

2. Creamy Broccoli (cause it’s been a while and it sounded real good! )

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

Thanks to the newbees!

Huuuuuge thank yous to Nate and Janeane for filling in at the soup last week! They will be on for one more week and then Brian returns from New Zeland!

The countdown for fall begins now but I’m squeezing in every summer soup I possibly can before the season ends.

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro bay and Friday in cambria:

1. Coconut curried lentil (that’s the one with the raisins)

2. Minestrone gnocchi

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

Evening surf

Sorry for the late post today, I was out surfing with my buddy, John. The seasonal change is definitely apparent in the ocean, cooler water, more wildlife (some wildlife that I’d rather not think about) and beautiful, glassy evenings. Fall in the water is just gorgeous.

Brian continues his trip to New Zeland this week so I’ll have a couple subs working the booth. You will meet Nate in Baywood and Jenene in Morro Bay and Cambria. Thanks again for your patience as they learn the ropes.

… and SOME people get to go to New Zeland

Hey guys!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are looking forward to labor day! Hopefully everyone is settling back into the school schedules (except Cal Poly, of course).

Farmers market trips in the Fall is one of my earliest childhood memories (the Baywood market to be specific) my mom would pick me up from Sunnyside elementary and we’d stroll through the market and I’d beg her not to make stir fry 😂😂 (I was a macaroni and cheese kid). It’s fun to see all the kidlets experiencing the market and I’m always so impressed when they will try my soup!

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro bay and Friday in cambria

1. Adzuki Bean and Barley (adzuki beans are little red beans, packed with nutrition, that taste like a kidney bean and feel like a lentil)

2. Heirloom Tomato Bisque

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars! Also, the lovely and talented soup assistant, Brian, will be on vacation for 12 days starting this Friday. Nate will be filling in on labor day but I’ll be flying solo the rest of the time so I apologize in advance if you have to wait a few extra minutes. Ill have bubbles available should the need arise.

Aaalllllso, I wanted to tell you that I had a dream on Friday night that I drowned in corn kernels. See you all soon.

All the fun

I had to take a moment this weekend to sit and be thankful for all the awesome activities the central coast provides. What a blessed life! The fun never stops and there is truely a grey area between work and fun and I just can’t tell you how thankful I am for all of YOU!!

Also, have you purchased a farmers market watermelon this year yet?! They are too good to be true.

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro bay and Friday in cambria

1. “Mike’s” Vegetable Barley (read about Mike at the end of this post)

2. Black Bean Hominy (with Jorge Tomatoes ohhhhhhyeahhhh)

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

About Mike: Mike and his wife, Betsey have been soup customers for years and one day, a few summers ago, Mike said that “vegetable barley” was a rather boring name for a soup so I asked him to suggest an alternative and, yep, you guessed it “Mike’s” Vegetable Barley was born.

Fogust

A happy central coast fogust to you guys! I am a happy happy girl in all this fog we’ve been having on the coast! It’s been fun meeting visitors who are traveling west to escape the inland heat, the markets have been filled with new faces! I love hearing about where travelers are coming from and where they are headed and it’s always an honor to be a little blip on their vacation.

The abundance continues at the markets with grapes, watermelons and corn all in full swing. The stone fruit is winding down over the next couple weeks so stock up while you still can!
