I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last blogged. September was a whirlwind of back-to-school activities with a healthy dose of work added to the mix. Over the next couple of months, I’m going to be consumed with a big culinary project, so the blog will focus on food adventures with links to recipes, food ideas and showcasing healthy brands that I love. So here’s what I’ve been up to.Last weekend, I was seduced by ripe Ontario plum tomatoes. I almost bought a bushel. With much restraint I went for a small basket that magically seem to multiply when I got home. With its wide array of fall harvest produce that all scream “buy me!”, the Canal Road Farmers’ Market is conveniently located off Highway 400. You can easily hop on and off if you’re heading up north for Thanksgiving this weekend. So what did I do with those luscious tomatoes?
I slow roasted them a la David Lebovitz. I also cooked up a double batch of tomato sauce (recipe to be revealed as part of my culinary project).Want to read more about buying/storing tomatoes? Check out these great tips form my friends at EatRight Ontario and Foodland Ontario.
