A Tomato Filled Weekend

August 19th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Food Mood|

August 19, 2017 - It is a busy weekend, filled with tomatoes! I picked up 60lbs of tomatoes, a couple dozen corn on the cob, onions, 10lbs of chicken backs & necks, and a variety of carrots, celery, fennel bulbs, basil, red peppers, green peppers, jalapeño peppers, onions, and other fresh vegetables. But the tomatoes [...]

Mango Salsa (220/365)

August 8, 2015 - Passing through our neighbourhood produce market I noted some nicely ripe and fragrant mangos on sale. Seemed like a good reason to can a few jars of peppery mango salsa to brighten up a dinner during the not so sunny days in the future months. Another tasty addition to the pantry [...]

March 13, 2015 - I just love Indian curry. I love to colour, the taste, the odour.... it just exudes warmth. Indian food certainly wasn't something I grew up with. My sole exposure to curry powder growing up was a recipe my Mom used to make, she called it Celestial Chicken and it was simple [...]

35-52-2014: Taste Summer

August 31st, 2014|52 Weeks 2014, Food Mood|

August 31, 2014 - I don't know why, but when September is looming only hours away, I always start to think of the season as fall, even though there are still three weeks of summer left. The nights are cooler, meaning sleeps are better. But the days are shorter too. Mornings aren't as bright, and [...]
