A Time of Plenty
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.
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!
