[Recreation - Out & About] Orange Region Farmers Market

Hi lovelies! Hope you have a beautiful Saturday.. as beautiful as the City of Orange. :P

I have just came back from the Orange Region Farmers Market which is held every SECOND SATURDAY of each month. I forgot how much fun to be spending Saturday morning (started from 8 am to 1pm) looking at fresh local produce, discovering new products, and basically uncovering the “hidden gems” in Orange region.

   

Grilled Cheese Chip Butty (Sandwich)

Here are some brief facts about Chip Butty extracted from Wikipedia (and it’s not the name of my pet!):-

“The word butty is a contraction of “bread and butter” that came from northern England, perhaps Yorkshire or Liverpool.”

“Originally considered a working-class meal and was served in pubs.”

“Usually a meal is served with a round of bread so diners can assemble their own Chip Butty with leftover chips.”

To celebrate National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, I’ve decided to go all out! I was thinking all day about how to make a grilled cheese sandwich more glorious than it already is.  Then I remembered Chip Butty.

There are many ways you can incorporate high fibre cereal in your diet. One of the common ways is via reduced, low or no fat milk and wholegrain, high fibre and wholewheat cereal in the morning (unless you are like my beloved who actually snacks on this throughout the day).

However, if you don’t have the habit of (or don’t like) eating milk and cereal, there is an indirect approach of incorporating cereal in baked goods and savoury food. Admittedly, it is my preferred way because I don’t really wake up early enough to have breakfast (especially during the work days) and I only see milk and cereal as breakfast food. Hence contrary to my beloved, it’s not something I can eat past breakfast.

   

Easter Sat & Sun + Two Cheeses Sweet Potato Hash Brown

On weekends and days when we (my beloved and I) don’t have to work, part of our dating routine is to get takeaway coffee from our favourite cafe , Factory Espresso,  and take a leisurely stroll around town while finishing up our coffee.
