This months Recipe Redux theme is a ‘Vacation-Inspired Theme’, encouraging members to create a recipe with an ingredient that they’ve seen on their summer travels.
I’ve taken a few small trips this summer, however nowhere too far. The furthest was a long-weekend trip to Boston. However the most memorable trips I’ve taken this summer were around my own backyard, in Ontario. Exploring places in cottage country to cool neighbourhoods in Toronto, to Prince Edward County wineries – Ontario has so many hidden gems.
Busy weekends sometimes call for a frantic Sunday trip to Farm Boy! I definitely have my mandatory list of Sunday activities, which upon completion, make me feel ready to take on the week.
In addition to sharing this delicious, nutrient-packed jam, I have other exciting news to share…
I’m now a homeowner!!
I’ve left a few guessing what the secret ingredient is in the recipe.
Maybe I’m a bad dietitian, but I just can’t do the spiralized zucchini noodle thing INSTEAD of pasta. I like zucchini on it’s own, but I can’t do with it replacing all the tasty carbohydrates in my diet. Without some carbohydrates I’m afraid I would be left feeling deprived.
The warmer weather seems to be bringing more heat to my schedule – things are getting busy around here! I’ve somehow managed to clog up most of my weekday evenings this with soccer two days a week, teaching at our community college one evening, seeing private practice clients one evening a week and of course…the Bachelor on Monday nights with my girlfriends!
