Another Native Hoosier

Hi, my name is Ellen and I live on the west side of Indianapolis, not far from Clermont, which is not far from Avon. I'm a widow of 20 years with a grown son, one grown granddaughter who has three little ones, and my son also has a 12-year-old daughter. I live just one mile from my son and his younger girl, so I get to practice my cooking and baking techniques on them quite often. I am so happy for this chance to share some of the wonderful recipes handed down in my Hoosier family.

Munster Farmer's Market

Yesterday morning I went to the Munster Farmer's Market in Centennial Park and stocked up on fresh new haven peaches, some gypsy peppers, bell peppers, huge onions, real nice and big tomatoes, and even got some home-made doggie treats for my ol' boy Caesar. (A lady was there who bakes her own dog treats...apparently she does a real good job because Caesar loved them more than any other treat I've ever given him!)

Anyway, with some of the local Indiana produce I got, I made an awesome fruit salad, and I want to share, so here you go!:

Hello Fellow Hoosiers

Hi! My name is Julia, everyone calls me Judy. Saw this group and joined. Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. I live in Greenwood, Indiana. About 15 miles south of downtown Indy. I'm married, the Hubs and I are both retired. I love to cook, bake and try new recipes. Glad to see others from Indy.
