It’s almost officially summer (and it finally actually feels like it) which means we are hitting up the Green City Farmers Market on a regular basis. Who doesn’t love farm fresh fruits and veggies? With little Zelda’s ever expanding palate we’ve been getting a little more adventurous with what we allow her to try (we’ve recently found out she’s obsessed with these). So her first step into uncharted vegetable territory was Pico de Gallo with Star Chips. It was a winner!
She also loved helping mama cut out the stars from the tortillas. Cookie cutters are totally her thing! We’ve been buying all our cutters in sets because they work in the kitchen and as toys for Zelda. It’s the simple things in life, right?! We threw our Pico de Gall in our favorite little bowls from Target accompanied by gorgeous every day plates from Crate and Barrel. Blush pink is slowing taking over our kitchen and we can’t resist an adorable little print!
