Life is Short

It is with a heavy heart & hollow feeling that I'm writing this today. I was just informed that a cousin, only 2 years older than me, married to an amazing woman who struggles with MS, with a very young daughter, has suddenly died.

Life can & will be snatched away with no cannot plan for death, especially the untimely one.

Do what you love. Life is too short to spend it any other way.

Inaugural Post

Today was the last Saskatoon Farmer's Market before Halloween - many of the vendors (& children) were decked out in costume, lots of themed items were available. For my booth, I added some mango puree to the Dal Makhani I made to give it the appropriate orange-hue, and I also had some black & orange spiral cream cheese cookies (this is the cookie recipe we made this week in my after-school cooking series) and put my pita crisps in Halloween cello bags.

I have a Cinderalla pumpkin in my store now, which I purchased from the Market. These go from a pale orange to a deep red, at which point, they are apparently ready to eat (yes, raw, drizzled with honey I'm told.....eaten as you would eat a watermelon). I'll let you know how it is!
