Typically, I would be posting my ingredients earlier in the day (circa 4pm) to give everyone a chance to go out and buy the same ingredients as me and follow along! But, since this is my first Farmer’s Market Thursday, we’re going to go about this a bit differently.

Today, I chose the Hoboken Uptown Farmer’s Market on Hudson Street between 12th and 13th Streets. Man, am I glad I did! I walked around the two blocks, talked to the wonderful farmers, and made up a dish in my head. To be honest, it wasn’t that hard. As an Italian by roots, give me basil, garlic, and tomatoes and I can make just about anything. This time, I bought some “farm to table” Italian chicken sausage that looked delicious. Altogether, two servings of pasta cost me about $16. Yes, that’s $16 – the most expensive part? The $11 chicken sausage. I got two giant bushels of basil for $1.00! In the grocery store near me, that would have been $5.95 for a small portion of basil…. flabbergasted, absolutely.

So, here I present you the recipe for my Garlic Zucchini Spaghetti with Italian Chicken Sausage, Tomatoes, Basil and Roasted Potatoes, made with the ingredients from the farmer’s market PLUS Parmesan cheese that I had in my fridge (but feel free to leave it out, especially if you’re trying to stay fit!) Other than that, this recipe is 100% thanks to the Hoboken Uptown Farmer’s Market (see them on www.hobokenfarmersmarket.com/)

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it
