...And we're back up and running lovelies!
As I mentioned in the previous post, moving across the country has taken a toll on me over the past 3 weeks. But things are settling down and shit's getting back to a new normal. Phew! Starting this/next week I'll have time to comment on your posts again too! And you know what that means... features will be back next week! If you're new here, you can see what that means below.
Speaking of moving, look what lives down the street from me:
... oh no wait. You can't. Because apparently it's gotten quite cold at night here and everything in their front yard (such beautiful peppers, and squash [I wanted to steal their blossoms to make these - but I didn't], kale, beets, eggplant, and who knows what else!) has either been picked or died in the last 3 days. For reals. Now that I'm not serving for a living, I'm rarely out past 8pm = no idea what the weather is doing. Balls. I'll hopefully have some farmer's market finds for you next week. That's the plan!
And to think I was worried no one would be interested in happy food in Ontario - silly girl. I have yet to find a Moss Street Market equivalent but it's certainly on the agenda.
....Do any of my Toronto readers (assuming I have any) know where a girl can get happy cheese, meat, eggs, honey, vegetables, and other food stuffs in the same place?
