If you’ve seen my Instagram lately, you probably spied these cute little his and hers frittatas. I finally found a use for this teeny tiny cast iron skillet!

orlando.farmers.marketWe’ve been brunching in a lot lately, which is a huge switch from Texas life. While I’ll admit that I do enjoy the whole dress up in your best and pay $25 for a breakfast that should probably only cost $10, we’ve kind of realized that Orlando is a little lacking in the blow-your-mind brunch arena. In Texas, brunch was an all day event. People would not go out on a Saturday night just so they could booze it up during an extended Sunday session. Here it’s just not that big of a deal. I can make a meal at home that’s just as tasty, only costs about $3 per person, not wait until I’m starving and ready to gnaw my arm off and not feel bad about indulging a little later at the Lake Eola Farmer’s Market.

Farmer’s Market top picks: For a meal- anything from Over Rice is my first choice. If they’re not around that day I go for a bahn mi or taco bowl from The Alligator Pear. I always snag a fresh coconut water OR the mojito from the Cuban place, then sample on some goodies from All Dried Up Snacks, inevitably spending all the cash I have left on their Pizza Without a Crust chips or caramel and peanut apple chips.
