Well, things are really seeming like they are slowing down a little now.
Andy has been doing some flame weeding, transplanting over-wintering Walla Walla onions, cleaning up greenhouses and cooking a few more meals at home.
One of the things we do this time of year is to slice into some of the big pumpkins or squash and bake them. Then we freeze the baked squash in two cup batches to be used later in soup or desserts.
I posted a couple of recipes we use a lot during the winter. Winter Squash Bars and Potatoe Pancakes (Latkes). Our whole family loves Latkes (the one-year-old, the six-year-old and their parents!).
We will be at the Abbotsford Farm and Country Market this Saturday, Nov.20th and then again on Dec. 4th and 18th. Hope to see some of you there.
We are looking forward to getting some more curry powder from Ace Curries to go. See http://www.acecurriestogo.com/ They roast and grind their own spices in North Vancouver and will be at the Abbotsford market on Saturday (Nov.20). Very tasty stuff.
We were outside last time we were at the Abbotsford Farmer’s Market and got to making a great plan with some other vendors for a bonfire. If we had put the plan into action, we would have had roast potatoes and carrots, sausages and baked apples. Yum! Usually you’ll find us inside the United Church during the Abbotsford winter markets.
