Plan B delivered this week: our delivery included three kinds of squash, potatoes, kale, spinach, lettuce and tons of apples. They’re fantastic fresh but we’re having friends over for brunch tomorrow so I made a batch of whole wheat apple muffins from Smitten Kitchen. They’re really good, and I love that they have chunks of apple instead of grated apple (easier to prep and more apple flavour in the muffins). She claims they keep well for several days so I hope that’s true – even with guests, 16 muffins is a lot!

We’re also going to try this puffed German apple pancake, and serve both with a cherry sauce from cherries I froze in the summer.

And speaking of local breakfasts, I had a great brunch at Calico Cafe this morning – butternut squash and pecan waffles with an apple compote and maple syrup. If you haven’t made your way there yet, I highly recommend it – this is the second great meal I’ve had there.

I finally made it this morning to the (relatively) new farmers’ market at the gorgeous new Wychwood Barns complex at Christie and St. Clair. I’m in love – not only is the space amazing, but I bought lots of yummy food until I ran out of money. (Although everyone I saw took credit cards.)


My take? Two kinds of cheese (goat and sheep),


a loaf of olive bread, locally made seed crackers,


local organic pasta,


local organic salad mix and flour and a dozen eggs. And a sweet potato cupcake (“Golden Brownie”) and cup of coffee for breakfast.
