  • Supper last night! Local mixed greens and local mixed sprouts from @easthillfarmer, local blueberries from @davisonorchards, my own pickled (local) red onions, local feta cheese, pumpkin seeds, local green onions, local tomatoes, and imitation crab. The rest of the produce tagged local was from various vendors at @vernon_farmers_market. Dressing was sweet onion and peppercorn from @davisonorchards who makes it onsite. Seriously delicious taste!

  • We had this scrumptious dessert last night that I made based on  @themealsmaven recipe from my #YCFSbook. Since I didn't have any Saskatoons I used delicious tart cherries instead that I picked from Peter's Orchards. The delicious blueberries were from @davisonorchards. I also used GF flour and some almond meal instead of regular flour and chopped walnuts. Did I say scrumptious?? Perfect treat fresh from the oven.
