Five on Friday

1.  From the kitchen this week it was all about zucchini!  Zucchini Chocolate Bundt Cake, Zucchini Bran Muffins, and Savoury Zucchini Squares.  Still to come - Vegetarian Lasagne with - you guessed it! - zucchini.  I'll share recipes next week.

2.  There are currently 4 - 20 lb. boxes of tomatoes stashed in the basement, waiting to ripen.  I still want to make another batch of salsa and one of tomato sauce.  It seems like the garden - and the work! - just goes on and on this year.

3.  We haven't had a real killing frost yet and it's the middle of October!  Amazing and so wonderful!

4.  The big blue Alberta sky and lingering coloured leaves continue to be absolutely gorgeous!

5.  Only 3 more sleeps until a certain grandson and his mama arrive in Alberta for a visit!!!


  1. I can't believe it's still so warm out there. I'm not sure what to pack. Any ideas? We're also getting very excited. I don't think Samuel quite gets it, but he's eager to see Grampa Bob and Gramma Crystal for sure.

  2. oh man, and i thought we had lots of tomatoes! :)

    hope you are enjoying mel and samuel.
