St. Phillips Farmers Market Sat/Sun November 22/23

Carrot Cake, Organic Apple Pie w/Spelt Crust, Pecan and Pumpkin Tarts
This is the last weekend before Thanksgiving, so we are busy!  We will be at St. Phillips this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday.  As last weekend, we will have Pumpkin Lentil Soup w/Corn Muffins.

You can still place a last-minute order for Thanksgiving; there are a few baking "slots" left....

Many people have ordered the Cranberry Pear Upside Down Cake - it has been very popular.  A 10-inch cake is $25.00, and is 8 large servings, or 10 medium servings.

Chocolate Pumpkin Uncheesecake is also popular, as is Tofu Pumpkin Pie.  There is no added fat in either dessert...

I will also have containers of Mushroom Onion Gravy that is gluten-free, vegan, w/o added fat and DELICIOUS over anything else.  You can always get a container for your fridge to "dress up" your veggies, or anything else you can think of.  One couple said they put it over their vegan "meat"balls.

Complete menu:
 
Banana Walnut Bread - 10 oz. loaves

6 oz. Muffins:  Blueberry Blue Corn (we get blue corn from NM and I mill it into blue corn meal.  DEFINITELY not GMO!)  I also add some mesquite flour from our mesquite beans.

Green Valley farmers market Wed Nov 12th

We really had a good time at the Green Valley farmers market last Wednesday, and we shall be there again this Wednesday -- with Chocolate Pumpkin Uncheesecake!

The pumpkin "body"  is perfectly spiced with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, sweetened with apple-peach-pear syrup and a little maple syrup.  No added fat but the silken tofu gives a plant protein content.  The crust is organic oat flour, organic cocoa powder, cinnamon and maple syrup, for a gluten-free crust that has no added fat.  The chocolate mousse on top is made of silken tofu, dark chocolate, and sweetened to perfection with maple syrup.  A delicious, heart-healthy dessert that is neither fattening, nor too "heavy" - and easy to digest!

There will be the usual assortment of 3 flavors of muffins, apricot date bars, 3 kinds of cookies, 2 kinds of brownies, pumpkin pecan bread, pear cranberry upside down cake, pumpkin tarts, pecan tarts.  Savory:  sprouted organic millet lentil sandwiches, tuno sandwiches, gluten-free pasta pesto, caponata.

Hope to see you there if Green Valley's your 'hood!
