Muffin Tin Monday: Eating The Late Summer Harvest

Welcome to Muffin Tin Monday!

A trip to our local farmer's market this weekend yielded some delicious late summer fruits and vegetables. We we able to get some late harvest strawberries (I love living in California!), some pluots (they're delicious!), crisp gala apples, and zucchini.

Rounding off this Muffin Tin Meal is are some whole wheat mini turkey apple-shaped sandwiches and leaf shaped cheddar cheese.

I was worried that the farmer's market strawberries would go bad before we could eat them all, so I froze some to use in smoothies for later this winter.

For tips on how to freeze strawberries, here is a great post by Simple Bites with 4 different methods for freezing strawberries.
