Some of you might be planning a get together this long weekend. Perhaps you are wondering what to serve your friends or what to bring to a potluck. This salad is wonderfully delicious and is a perfect side dish to any meal. The tangy lemon dressing mixed with oregano and olives brings out the Mediterranean flavours.
I modified this recipe slightly from Fine Cooking Magazine’s All-Time Favourites (Dec 2013) to fit the ingredients we had at home. For example, instead of using Lamb Shank, I used lamb roast, and the result was fantastic. It is easy to make and the balance of flavours makes it grand!
Fall is one of my favourite seasons – the weather is getting cooler, and the produce choices are ramping up. Amazing, tasty products are either hitting their peak in your garden or can easily be found in local farmer’s markets. Just visit the Almonte or Carleton Place farmers’ markets to be convinced.
It’s the time of year when you can easily find apples, pears, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and winter squash, to name just a few. They’re the perfect excuse to get cooking on cool nights!
What better way to warm a crisp autumn day than with soups, pot pies, roasts, and casseroles. Here are some recipes, easy to make, and that your friends and family would love. Enjoy!
Thai Green Curry Paste Chicken
It is cold out there in Almonte! What better way to warm up then to cook a hot spicyish meal. That is exactly what we did last night!
We had chicken, we had deSiam’s Thai Green Curry Paste, we had coconut milk and we had vegetables. We were all set to cook a delicious and easy to make meal!
