So I must say I am incredibly proud of how well we did at using all of our produce from the last delivery. Last year we struggled to use everything but we started this season with a new plan. That plan is to plan! Last bin we made a list of what was in it … Continue reading CSA October 29
I think I somehow convinced myself there was more time between the end of the summer season and the start of the fall one. Clearly there was not as much time as I thought as the season started tonight and I am in shock! Michelle from Fair Meadow Farm has provided us with a wonderful bounty to enjoy.
So that’s a total fail! I totally missed last weeks list and am super late posting this one! I apologise if you were looking for clarification on items in your bin! In other news, our Healthy Connections family grew again as Shaun and Michelle welcomed their little baby into their family last week! All are … Continue reading CSA October 4
We used to be faithful meal planners but fell off the bandwagon since our baby was born….almost 9 months ago….BUT I am happy to report we have gotten back into it and it has made all the difference! Life is so much less stressful when we plan our dinners and lunches. We try to plan to have leftovers from dinners to provide a protein for the 4 of us in our family plus the two children I have in my home daycare for lunch the next day. It’s hard at times – especially when we’re extra hungry at dinner but the good news is by planning ahead we can adjust and make it work.
As I type this post my hands are covered in beet juice. I am stained from cutting up one GIANT beet for our dinner tonight.
Fall CSA season is fast approaching! I can hardly believe it but at the same time I cannot wait! I love the fall CSA for all the squashes we get. I absolutely love squash – roast or as a soup it just makes me so happy!! Once again this fall we are partnering with Michelle … Continue reading Fall CSA!
As I said in a previous post, we were excited about having a full kitchen in our cottage while we were on vacation. This allowed us in many ways to eat as we normally would have just on PEI. We were there with my immediate family and so we had decided to do dinners together but other meals would be fend for yourselves. We eat very different than my family does (as with most of the world) with our decision to go paleo. People often ask what they can cook for us because they’re baffled mostly by the lack of grain/gluten. Our answer is always meat and potatoes and we’re good.

Well I’d say we had an eventful trip to the farm this morning! Now normally Tom or Shaun would go to the farm and pick up all the awesome produce. Today was a different story. Shaun was unable to go so the plan was for Tom to go. He was feeling under the weather and so he asked if I would go. Of course I said yes because I love going to the farm and because I am an amazing wife. Continue reading “CSA September 6”
Another beautiful day today in London. We hope everyone received their produce without anything suffer too badly from the heat. We packed those bins as fast as possible to avoid being in the heat longer than necessary. Even our 8 month old got in on the bin packing party. Poor little man is teething and didn’t want to be put down. So I had him in a carrier on my back helping Tom out. He enjoyed the hard work. Continue reading “CSA August 30”
The harvest sure was plentiful this week. Bins were packed full of amazing produce this week! My personal favourite is the delicious raspberries! They are so good! They are not making it to see another day in our house! Too good!!
