City Mouse On A Country Drive

fall-activity-list-update1

I love driving through the country in the fall time. It is one of the things I miss now that I am living in the city. All the trees with their leaves changing colour is absolutely beautiful. On our way to visit a farm we had to drive through the country to get there. It was a clear day and we got to enjoy the scenery as we were driving by.

Our destination was Springridge Farm. We go there every fall to look through there little shop and pick up some apple cider. Our visit was wonderful as always, we even purchased a few gifts. Two more items off theĀ Fall Fun activity list.

A Weekend for PreparationsĀ 

This weekend I went on an adventure with my Lobster to Springridge Farm. One of my favourite times to visit is during Autumn when the apples and pumpkins are out and the leaves are changing. 

  
  

  
After a delicious lunch we picked out a batch of apples and a bottle of apple cider. It was now time to head home to start preparations for Thanksgiving. I am making a pumpkin pie and homemade perogies for our feast next weekend. 

   
 I have a wheat intolerance so I decided to make a batch of perogies using spelt flour. I love experimenting in the kitchen and trying new things with a recipe. The dough worked out great so we cooked a couple to try and they tasted just as delicious as the original recipe. I am so glad the recipe worked as perogies are one of my favourite dishes. I also whipped up a few batches using the original recipe for those family members that are not as adventurous when it comes to trying new foods.
