It was my pleasure to have an opportunity to spend a day with Eric Hulse from Eric Hulse Wellness and his fiance Austin! We visited the Local Farmer’s Market here in Saratoga Springs NY, climbed trees, picked out fresh produce, had some wine, and cooked up a storm together. What a blast!

We picked out a bounty of amazing produce including different varieties of cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, basil, turnips, and garlic scapes. We picked up some homemade sauerkraut from a local farmer, and some swiss chard. We found some local pastured sausage.

Then we came back to my place, poured some wine and started cooking…

Here we are doing some serious chopping!

I worked on the roasted vegetables while Eric made the cucumber, tomato, and avocado salad…with fresh basil, sea salt, and cracked pepper.

We also roasted some camera shy veggies on a cookie sheet in coconut oil: carrots, garlic scapes and turnips…we added some dill seasoning!

 

 

What do I want you to take from this?

Break out of your shell.

Visit your local farms and farmer’s markets!

Open your heart.

Buy local produce, get together with friends, and bond over cooking.

Cooking is pleasurable!

Don’t follow a recipe-create from your heart.

You are capable of more than you think.

Be inspiring.

 

What did I take from this? 

I made two amazing new friends…who enjoy bonfires as much as I do. What more could I ask for? Thank you Eric and Austin for an awesome day!
