A Time of Plenty

Apples of Every Variety

A trip to the Atwater Market in preparation for Thanksgiving dinner was a treat. The air was crisp and the colours popped. And, as always, I bought too much - but it will get used.

October Harvest

On the menu - almost everything is local
Turkey - raised in Quebec
stuffing (my grandmother's recipe)
new potatoes, broccoli, salad - all locally grown
Apple cake - with Quebec apples
Strawberries - still local

It feels good to be able to serve mainly local food. Only too soon our growing season will be over and we will be shipping in fresh produce. In the meantime - a time to feast!


  1. You'll be preparing a feast. Yum yum to the apple cake!

  2. You must have had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The plenty of apples reminded me of the fresh crunch of the first bite of an apple in season.

  3. Apples have been scarce down here - hope you can share! ;)
