If any of you are stuck somewhere foreign, or far away from your friends I suggest you take a look around. Its fall, and my favorite season! No matter where you are (in Ontario) the colours of fall are blooming: Orange, red, yellow, even the browns are beautiful. I took photos today and I will be soon uploading! I have no doubt that people most likely thought I was a wierdo, but when you have no friends, what does it matter?
Speaking of fall, I am attempting to be conscious of eating seasonally, due to strong influence from the book I am currently reading, "Vegetable, Animal, Miracle", therefore today I bought apples, onions, brussel sprouts, carrots, peppers, and squash...which are all so yummy and in season! I went to the market, where I normally go for the produce, so that is definately another plus! Anyone have a good recipe for squash though? I have this Japanese Pumpkin recipe, that I am just going to impose onto squash and hope for the best, but if anyone has good ones, let me know! Last week I bought squash and made soup and this yummy cake (adapted from VegNews' recipe in their Sept. 2008 ed.), I love the squash and pumpkin action! Well, tomorrow is cooking day, so I will figure something out!
Other then colours and vegetables, I went to this cute place on Bank St. "Nuts about Life" and bought dried strawberries...has anyone tried these?! They are soo good, superior to most candies!
