Yumma Dooma Do!

Hey guys, guess what?

No, seriously…guess!

?????

WE’RE ALLLLLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!!

I actually didn’t know anything about this possible “doomsday” until this morning when I was on Twitter. What? Isn’t it completely normal to stay up-to-date on current events via social media networks?? Hmm…

Well, just in case this WAS my last day on Earth, I made sure to conserve my energy…you know, to fight off the looters! If anyone is staking claim to the peanut butter aisle, it’s gonna be ME!

Today, I met my friend Jen downtown for the first day of the Clarksville Downtown Market (kind of a blend between a farmer’s market and a craft fair). They will have the market open every Saturday until sometime in September and after seeing it today, I’m pretty sure that I’ll be making an appearance each week!

Even though we got to the market a little late, we were still able to grab up a few goodies:

Two dozen fresh local eggs for $4

Why do I suddenly feel the urge to make more French toast?

1 pound of collard greens for a buck fifty!

Aren’t these the cutest?!

And I also got a jar of raw honey butter but my camera seems to have gotten hungry!

Just picture a small Mason jar with creamy buttery goodness!

Got it? Ok, moving on…

After finishing up at the market, we decided to take a little trip on base to look at some furniture (Jen’s hubby is in the military and she always takes me on post to get the tax-free goodies!). The bad news…still no luck on a desk, but I may have found a pretty affordable alternative to my bedroom set! Still thinking about it.

While we were there, Jen suggested that we go to the Commissary (the HUGE grocery store on post). She told me that she KNEW I would love it there…

She knows me too well! 😉

I got waaaaaay too much stuff to ramble on and on about on here so I’ll just show you some of my proudest purchases!

And a new to me snack! They’re like crunchy little rice sticks!

And I also found some of these:

Which helped complete my dinner for tonight!

I knew as soon as I saw the picture Beth posted on Twitter earlier this week that her Maple Apple Tempeh Burgers would be on the menu this weekend. I was all set to have them last night, but somebody got a little carried away “cleaning the food processor” while making hummus balls and ruined her appetite for dinner!

They were worth the wait!

Maple syrup, fresh grated apple, sweet red onion, and earthy sage

I swear to you this tasted JUST like Thanksgiving Day dressing! And the yogurt sauce on top made of Greek yogurt, dijon mustard, and maple syrup? Oh my gosh, I could lick that stuff off a stick!

I ended up making 4 patties out of this and served them up with some yucca fries seasoned with some smoked crack paprika.

Allie had it right when she renamed this “yumma” fries! They’re like potatoes but heavier and with a bit more oomph and lots of yum!

The best part about this meal?

LEFTOVERS!

Have you ever tried yucca?
Honestly, they only LOOK intimidating! It was such a cinch to make these!

Tell the truth, did you think today might be the end of the world?
Since I didn’t really know about it until TODAY, I can’t really say it affected me any, but I’m still on the fence on what to think about come December 21…although part of me says it won’t happen because we’ll be expecting it!
