Happy fall, Good-bye Summer! : Fall cooking

fallcookingfrontEven though I’m sad to see summer go away, I’m looking forward to fall. I love autumn in Toronto with its mild temperatures and colorful leaves. But most of all, I love the bounty of harvest Ontario offers for me as an immigrant to the new world.

The gourds, squash, and pumpkins fascinate me. They look funny and they taste so good. With so many local ingredients available, I try out new recipes every year and dust off my old favorites.

He also points out that, as the days get shorter in the winter months, motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians
increase. “The most dangerous times for pedestrians is during the autumn and winter months”, said Woozageer. “From 2006 to 2010, 40% of serious injuries and 42% of fatalities to pedestrians occurred between October and January.”

After picking it is canning time : Apple sauce

By Kari Svenneby

Canning is a great way to preserve our harvest and it also is a fun activity to do together as family. In our family we get together washing, peeling and preparing for canning. It is not just for grown ups children can be great little helpers. An added bonus is canned goods look great as a display in your kitchen and is also a great hostess or Christmas gift.

Happy Fall ! Fall activity guide

It is that time again, shorter days and less sunlight.  For me, fall is Canada’s number one season.  If you ever think about visiting Toronto make sure you visit in the fall.  Fall in Toronto is warm days and gorgeous nights with beautiful fall foliage and harvest bounty for the farmers markets.

Find Monarch butterflies

Every year something magical happens in Toronto. Each year, thousands of beautiful Monarch butterflies congregate at the shoreline before embarking on a 3,500-kilometre fall migration to Mexico.

Today we decided to follow Monarch butterflies on our bike ride by the shoreline.
