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.

Go Play Outside Fortune teller

8 Backyard fun ideas

fortuneteller

In today's post I'm introducing an old favorite childhood toy; the fortuneteller with a twist. Last year I really enjoyed my friend Jen's Kitchen Chronicle's idea I'm bored jar". She suggested a jar with different activities and suggestions in it to get kids up and doing something. With the end of the school year approaching us, I think it would be great to have a tool when that boredom moment hits our kids go give them a little help to get them outside to play. We have tested it this weekend and I can tell you it was a big hit in our house. Making an outdoor fortuneteller is a great activity for kids (Age 7 an up).

Mud pie kitchen

mudkitchen1Believe it or not we do have trends in the #playoutdoors movement, and mud and mud pie kitchens are very popular amongst other bloggers. For some time I have been secretly admiring and thinking about creating our own outdoor play kitchen. My kids love to make dirt soups and mud pies all year round.

Outdoor Play Birthday Party

birtdayparty1This is not a post about the perfect planned party; instead it is about a low key outdoor birthday party.  As some of you might know I always do outdoor birthdays for my kids even in the winter, but this summer I was very excited to plan for the first time an outdoor party in the summer, for my daughter’s 2 year birthday party.
