Farmers Market Basket of Fruit & Veg

I have the best sister in the entire world! Whenever her and her boyfriend go to the farmers markets up north they always bring me fresh fruit and veg. My SiSi as I call her is also a serious Tomato Snob, with the diploma from The Culinary Institute of Ontario to prove it. This photo is the last package I received from her. How thoughtful is this beautiful basket of carrots, parsnips, beets, shallots, pears and apples. Obviously I put all these goodies to excellent use. 
Heres a thought, next time you get invited to dinner at a foodies house bring them a basket of fresh local fruit and veg.  Everyone always brings a bottle of wine  as the host/ hostess gift - not that there's anything wrong with that, but a basket like this would really stand out. 


  1. You have a very thoughtful SiSi! How nice to have fresh veggies and fruits delivered straight to your door.

  2. Toronto is blessed with a "Green Belt" that contains a fantastic variety of seasonal produce that most other megacities are rightly envious of. We should take advantage of it and support our farmers! Where can I get a SiSi?

  3. Like I said - she's the best in the whole wide world. xo SiSi


Thanks for your two cents. I love change!
