Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons by far, but autumn is ok too (mainly because it’s a season that is not winter). The temperatures are cooler, the leaves begin to change and we reap the fruits of nature. Picking rhubarb and apples, digging up garden produce, baking breads and muffins, cooking stews and chili, and drinking warm afternoon teas are just some of my favorite things. Oh and wearing SweetLegs.
Mmm how I love delicious, raw, local honey from the Sherwood Park Farmer’s Market on warm rhubarb banana bread. I didn’t measure anything for this recipe, but threw a bunch of ingredients into a bowl and it turned out amazing. All the ingredients are whole foods and there was NO refined sugars added (that’s what honey is for!).
My neighbour has two apple trees that are heavy with fruit. My three year old and I went over yesterday and picked A LOT of apples, but there are still so many more. Thankfully, my neighbour wants me to take ALL of them so I’ll be baking, canning, juicing like CRAAAAAZEEEEE!
Because of all this delicious food nature has provided for us, and because we still have plenty in our fridge, pantry and freezer, I only spend $36 on groceries this week (which included beef, chicken, some produce and kidney beans!).
Happy Labour Day long weekend everyone! Hope you’re enjoying your last “hurray” before the kids go back to school!
