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/)

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
