THE SEASIDE FARMER’S MARKET

A DAY TRIP TO THE FARMER’S MARKET + CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICH

AND GREEK SIDE SALAD RECIPES


Today was farmer’s market day in a small beach community nearby called Seaside.  They have everything from local honey and fresh produce to handmade soaps and jewelry.  I love going to the farmer’s market when I get the chance and today I was on the hunt for feta but not just any feta, Greek marinated feta!

Here are a few shots from our outing…

After the market, we stopped by Central Square Records to say hello to friends and check out the new merchandise.  I ended up with “The Skeleton Dance” record, an old Disney favorite around Halloween and Jamie got one of their tie-dye t-shirts.

By the time we got home we were starved!  I managed to whip up some quick chicken salad sandwiches and a side of Greek salad with the feta we got.

The Chicken Salad recipe below is super simple and easy to throw together.  It’s definitely a staple in our household during the summer.  The Greek salad dressing was a tip I got from the owner’s of the Greek gyro stand at the Farmer’s Market.  I would have loved to have added some kalamata olives to it but unfortunately, we were all out.  The chips you see pictured are the “Heritage Blend” by Terra brand.  They offer tons of tasty vegetable chip options, if you haven’t tried them yet, you should pick some up the next time you’re at the grocery store.  (My favorite is the salty plantain.)

Ingredients
  1. CHICKEN SALAD
  2. 2-4 CHICKEN BREASTS, BOILED AND SHREDDED
  3. 2-3 SCALLIONS, DICED
  4. 2-3 CELERY STICKS, DICED
  5. 1/2 CUP MAYONNAISE
  6. SALT + PEPPER TO TASTE
  7. LETTUCE
  8. FRENCH HAMBURGER BUN, OR SLICED BREAD
  9. SLICED PROVOLONE CHEESE
  10. GREEK SALAD
  11. ROMAINE LETTUCE, CHOPPED
  12. 1 TOMATO, DICED
  13. 1/4 CUP RED ONION, DICED
  14. GREEK MARINATED FETA OR CRUMBLED FETA
  15. LEMON JUICE
  16. OLIVE OIL
  17. OREGANO
  18. SALT + PEPPER
Instructions
  1. CHICKEN SALAD
  2. MIX ALL INGREDIENTS IN A BOWL. ADD MORE MAYONNAISE IF NEEDED. I LIKE TO START OFF ADDING A LITTLE AT A TIME TO GET TO THE PERFECT CONSISTENCY. TOAST BREAD AND ADD A LITTLE MAYONNAISE ON EACH SIDE. TOP WITH LETTUCE AND PROVOLONE CHEESE. TOP WITH CHICKEN SALAD.
  3. GREEK SALAD
  4. ADD MARINATED FETA, TOMATOES, AND ONION TO ROMAINE LETTUCE. DRIZZLE WITH OLIVE OIL AND LEMON JUICE. ADD SALT, PEPPER, AND OREGANO TO TASTE.
Notes
  1. IF YOU HAVE A KITCHEN AID MIXER, THROW THE BOILED CHICKEN BREASTS IN WITH A BEATER PADDLE FOR ABOUT A MINUTE OR TWO ON MEDIUM SPEED. THE CHICKEN WILL BEGIN TO SHRED (NO MORE WAITING FOR IT TO COOL). WATCH CLOSELY AS YOU ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE IT CAN QUICKLY BEAT YOUR CHICKEN INTO A PULP!

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Just a smudge.... Have you ever used sage/smudge sticks to clear out negative energy? I know it sounds crazy but I absolutely swear by this method!!! Sometimes you just need a smudge, ya know?! P.S. you can now shop my looks and decor via @liketoknow.it

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!

  • ✨Happy NYE!!!✨This year was tough, not gonna lie! We got our new white lab Luna in the beginning and Hurricane Michael in the end and there were many other events in between. Let’s just say that I’m ready for the new year and I look forward to new memories! With all that being said I am also very thankful for this past year because it took me out of my comfort zone and made me realize what’s important and how to prioritize my life! I’m also very thankful for all of you for following me, commenting, liking, and supporting me. I hope y’all have a most memorable night filled with friends and family and stay safe!! See you next year! ❤️😉🎉 #forever21xme #freepeople #happynye #happynewyear2019 #cheers
  • Cheers to the weekend! 🥂Currently contemplating whether I should take down our Christmas decor or leave it up til New Year’s Day. What are your thoughts on this? I need some advice 🙃
