Local food

Time for a break from all that sewing and quilting, and time to talk about food!
After a dark and rainy start to the day (which did not stop my neighbour and myself from our morning hour-long walk in the woods) the afternoon was golden and glorious. I picked some Gravenstein apples from a generous neighbour, and made deep dish apple pie. I went down to the Arts Centre to pick up my art pieces from the end of the last art show of the summer. It has been a magical summer of art for me.
Then JM and I finally took the canoe out for the first time this summer. With a high tide and calm water we had a magical paddle out over Denman Point and back.
Once back at home we opened a bottle of Grey Monk Pinot Gris (my absolute favourite white wine), I put some Italian sausages in the oven, and made zucchini fritters and tomato salad with feta cheese and my own basil. We finished with the apple pie and ice cream. Sigh . . .
