Whoa, this was awesome! I’ve been on a use-leftover-pumpkin-wherever-I-can kick and tossed it into another food just the other night. Remember Popovers, also known as Yorkshire Puddings? Well in a quick thrown-together meal (yes, there was no meal plan this week because we’re trying to deal with all the leftovers from last week!) I grabbed a … Continue reading

Leftover Sweet Potato or Pumpkin Puree? Make Sweet Potato Pumpkin Swirl Bread!
I have always loved pumpkin bread. I’m talking about the classic “bread” that is loaded in sugar and oil and wonderful pumpkin flavor that is delicious, but in my opinion more of a cake than a bread. So in the last year I’ve been working on translating that flavor into a “real” bread, with yeast … Continue reading

Cabbage Mushroom Toasts: An Easy Meal that is Local All Year!
Around Kitchener and Waterloo cabbage and mushroom can be found locally grown all year. In the winter it is cabbage that was grown in the fall and has been stored. The rest of the year it’s totally way fresh. Either way, cabbage is a wonderful vegetable with many uses. We ate this as a … Continue reading
Butternut and Caramelized Onion Pizza
I’ll try to keep this post short because I’m about to go for a walk. We are enjoying (Canadian) Thanksgiving today with my wife’s family. It’s a lovely fall day here in the Ottawa Valley on the Eastern side of Ontario. My Young Assistant is making a puzzle with his uncle, Madame is reading, … Continue reading
Polenta with Sofrito and Fried Eggs
We were very late with our meal plan this week, waiting until Monday to do it, and I have been revising the plan as the week went has gone on (which is part of why I never posted the thing). We were supposed to eat frozen lasagna for dinner last night but I forgot to thaw … Continue reading
Southern Ontario Menu Plan for September 2-8
Meal-planning is an important part of our week. It allows us to be more prepared and relaxed with regards to our nightly meals and reduces stress. It also makes eating locally much easier because we take the time to figure out what seasonal foods are available and how we can use them. If you live … Continue reading
The Pleaple have Spoken: Plum, Peach, and Apple Salsa
After returning to town we didn’t have time to hit up all of our favorite sources for fresh local foods, but we did find Ontario peaches and plums at the grocery store (they seemed to be from the Niagara region) and they were delicious! As it were, I was craving salsa (this is pretty much … Continue reading
Cardamom Apricot Pizza
As I’ve already stated, I’m pretty much obsessed with pizza. Maybe my favorite thing about pizza is the freedom to put whatever you want on a piece of dough and still be able to call it pizza. The discovery (well, for me it was a discovery, for others it was pretty old news) that fruit … Continue reading
Summer Pizzas Featuring Zucchini, Tomatoes and Basil. Correction – Lots of Basil.
Pizza is my favorite food. It’s my favorite food to make from scratch. It’s my favorite to go out for. Frozen pizza is even my favorite store-bought food (and one of the only ones I’m willing to eat)! Since pizza varies so much depending on where it’s from—homemade, pizzeria, grocery store, etc.—I don’t mind eating … Continue reading
