I am seriously obsessed with this place. It is called Szalay's and i think i have been about 5 different times in the last 2 weeks. All of their produce is beyond delicious and the atmosphere is just so fun. It is basically a big barn that feels like an open air grocery store. It is surrounded by corn fields and walking trails and in the front of the barn there are huge outdoor swings made so that entire families can sit on them while they enjoy the ice cream, frozen lemonade and grilled corn that they make right out front.
In the fall, there is a corn "maze" that kids can run through before they get their pumpkins at the pumpkin patch and i am pretty sure they do hey rides from here too.
It is so idyllic. I really do think that this might be my favorite place in all of Ohio.
So anyways, here is a small sampling of what i have been putting on the menu for Baby O'B.
delicious, juicy, non grainy, unbelievably good peaches!!! i would say i eat 1-2 of these a days.
strawberries! Most of the time I eat them plain, but sometimes i get them all dressed up like this with heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar. It is beyond good and so easy. If you wanted to make this for guests just put the strawberries in a martini glass to add a little jooj. This really is the perfect light summer dessert and it works well with raspberries too (my dad's favorite)
Holy GOD this salad is also my favorite!! Caprese salad with basil cut from my own garden. Even if it didn't taste as delicious as it does, i would still love it just for the simple fact that i feel like a freaking Martha Stewart rockstar every time I incorporate a home grown ingredient into something i am eating. Salt, pepper, olive oil, good balsamic, basil, fresh mozzarella and Farmy delish tomatoes = perfection.
and these cherries...I don't even like cherries but seriously (again) i love these ones! They are pricey at $6/lb, but so worth it.
So what has all of this (plus a baby) done to my physique? Ummmmmmmm, let me show you.
