A Message from Maryrose:

Harvest season is such a wonderful time. There is so much produce to pick from and I don't want to miss out on any of it. We still have many vegetables available in BULK for preserving or freezing. In fact I just added half bushels of bell peppers from Edward & Selema Martin.

In addition to that we now have their colourful mums available. I can't wait to start decorating for fall. The straw bales and Indian corn will look great too. I love the cool crisp weather that comes with this time of year. Soups, stews and chili are beginning to make their way back into the menu rotation these days.

One of my favourite soups to make is out of the Simply in Season cookbook. It is in the spring section of the book but I like to make it all winter long. It is a sausage and greens soup. It's quick and easy soup to make. Here is an adaptation of the recipe.

Traditional Foods is has three specials this week.
They are holding over their special on smoked pork chops until the end of September. Smoked loin chops hardly need any cooking time, another quick meal solution. Get a 5 pound box for $35.
They are also offering a 5 lb and a 10 lb pork box. The 5lb box contains spare ribs and smoked ham steak for $26. The 10lb box has spare ribs, a boneless ham roast and smoked loin chops for $52.

We were lucky enough to receive a delivery of grass fed organic ground beef from Vibrant Farms this week. It could not have come at a better time as we just found out that Traditional Foods will not have ground beef in stock until near the end of October. .

The Nutty Bakers is back on the offering list. They are all staffed up at their new shop and ready to provide their great savoury pies and sweet treats.

Don't forget that this is the week to stock up on items from McKechnie, J&D Peters and Barrie's Asparagus. We'll put another order in on October 5th so they are always fresh!

More local goodness:
  • Sacred Basil, makes a healing stress relieving tea - Transpire Organics Farm
  • Mini Red Peppers, (1 inch round) red stuffing peppers - great appetizers - Garden Party
  • Tomatoes a plenty - We are nearing the end of tomato season.
  • Naked Seed Pumpkins, These seeds have a very thin see through husk they are my favourite roasted seeds. Lester & Irene grew these especially for us this year.
  • Torta - triple crème camembert - Monforte
  • Tofu is still available
  • There is still some ice cream left. The jury is still out as to if we will have it available throughout the winter.

There are some local events you may be interested in throughout the next week or so:

International Plowing Match - in Roseville, September 18 - 22nd - A "tented city" covering 100 acres will become home to some 600 exhibitors and vendors for 5 days.There will be attractions for everyone ... knowledge and education to be gained by today's decision makers, tomorrows leaders and those who are enjoying their leisure time.

Every Little Bit Helps - Thursday September 20th - An evening for the community to help raise some money for our neighbours who lost a lot due to the fire on King St. in Waterloo on Thursday August 23rd. Featuring local musicians, Shawn Kellerman, Saigon Hookers, Buns and Stagg, Daddy Long Legs and more to be announced.

Monforte is hosting The Hootenanny 2012 - Sunday September 30th - It's classic Pot-Luck.
Bring a dish for 10 people, your own plate, cutlery and glass. If you want to sit down rather than two-step bring a chair or stool. They will put up tents and Chef Mark Cutrara of Cowbell has offered to do some cooking. The Hoot is at Monforte's property on 49 Griffith Road in Stratford
