Tuesday is coming fast - Time to order!
What a lovely weekend. We had a lovely weekend at home, went canoeing, spent time with friends, had fun at Canada Day Celebrations and even got a swim in!
I wish it didn't have to end.

Somehow when I'm eating in season I find that I've eaten enough strawberries by the time strawberry season ends. We'll still have some this week, but that will be about it for another year. It doesn't hurt that the cherries, raspberries and blueberries are not far behind. It seems a bit late to share my favourite strawberry recipe of the year, but I will anyway. Before I do, I welcome you to share your favourite recipes for cherries, raspberries and blueberries (not necessarily all together, but it couldn't be a bad thing). Or any other local, in season item for that matter! I'm hoping to put a recipe 'blog' together so that recipes are easier to share. I'd love to hear your ideas on what you want to see.

Local Strawberry Daiquiris
Late last Friday night I was hulling 2 flats of strawberries, spreading them on cookie sheets in the freezer and grumbling about it. I tried to think of something that I'd like to make with strawberries. Fresh Strawberry pie? ( Nope. Too much work. Then I thought about Strawberry Daiquiris! I don't think I had ever had a strawberry daiquiri made with fresh berries before. Google helped me find and, well, it was really good - better than any mix I've had! It went really well with popcorn and a few friends.

Things to order this week:

  • Cherries!
  • Chocolate from Anna Tolazzi - Last week until the end of September!
  • Order all the tortillas, chips, tacos, tamales and pasta you want this week!
  • Get some Empanadas and dips from Casa Salsa for a complete meal.
  • This is the week to stock up on cheese from Gordon's Goat Dairy.
  • Honey - Great in iced tea!
  • Fish (in the 'other' section) - we have some wild caught fist from Manitoulin Island. It's not 100 mile, but we think it's worth offering to you.
  • Sparkling cider - so refreshing chilled on a hot day
  • Pickling cucumbers in 3L baskets (I feel a recipe for counter top pickles coming on)
  • Golden Guernsey Milk - My kids like it!
  • Salad greens, Asian greens, Fennel and Kohlrabi
  • 100 mile organic spelt bread from Golden Hearth - It's our only 100% local bread!
  • A bag of scones or croissants to go with your tasty bread
  • Yogurt to make a tasty fresh fruit parfait
Enjoy this short week,
Maryrose and Rachael
