EAT: It's the end of the season, and that means harvest time! As the days get cooler and we welcome September, I'm excited for winter soups and squash bakes. This Coconut Curry Butternut Squash Soup sounds just about right.
CAMP: I went camping a few weekends ago at Thomas Raddall Provincial Park in Port Joli, NS. If you're looking for a quiet campground with lots of gorgeous beach walks nearby, this is the ticket. They've got lots of large sites available if you have a trailer, and if you're into tenting like me, you'll find their walk-in sites to be perfect mix of woodsy and convenience. While you're there, be sure to check out Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct, hike the beach, watch the seals, feel alive.
MAKE: If you've been to the Lunenburg Farmers' Market lately, you'll know that Pleasant Hill Farm's ginger is back! That's right, ginger grown (in a greenhouse) in Nova Scotia. I took home a lovely ginger root last week and I'm dreaming about all the things I could make with it, including this Candied Ginger from Scratch.
ART: With the weather cooling down, rug hooking is on my mind. While perusing the internet for ideas I found Jonathan Josefsson's abstract rugs and fell in love. Primarily a graffiti artist, Josefsson creates fun, colourful pieces.
MAKE: When it comes to knitting I can easily say I hate it. It is the one fibre art that I always steer clear from. However, seeing this tutorial for high waisted knitted shorts makes me want to pick up my dusty needles and give knitting another go. These shorts are perfect for fall.
EAT: I love baked tomatoes. This recipe for rice-stuffed tomatoes looks so scrumptious.
