I keep reminding myself that I have tons of things that I want to post and then time keeps slipping away! Thus, now I'm playing a little bit of catch up!
Last weekend I escaped Oakville/Toronto for a mini getaway to Kemptville, ON to visit my darling friend, JP! (I'm searching for a photo of us but I think it's on my external hard drive... stay tuned - I WILL find it!) JP and I have been friends for about 10 years now and we met while our younger brother's played baseball together.
**UPDATE** I found the photo!

What was originally just going to be a weekend of us hanging out really turned into quite the 'foodie' weekend. JP is very lucky to live within a very short walking distance of two Farmer's Markets. One is a community project where local farmers all contribute produce and the proceeds go to charity! Saturday morning we headed out to visit this market while on the grand tour of Kemptville and the man who runs this stand was so nice! Not only was he full of information about all of the produce but I even left with a free veggie to try. I don't know if you've ever seen a kohlrabi, but it's definitely a bit of an intimidating thing at first glance.

Beyond visiting and touring Kemptville, I was also spoiled and got to check out Merrickville too! Merrickville has some lovely lochs that I was really hoping to see in full action but unfortunately we only caught the end of some loch-esque movement. Regardless, I was a happy camper:
|Yay, that is one happy gal!|
And on that note, this gal is off to bed! I hope you all have an amazing week filled with delicious food!
