Monday

One fine weekend in September

 What a glorious weekend!
We're back in the Montreal area and it is just gorgeous here. This is most definitely my favourite time of year.

On Friday night we finally had the chance to eat at Montreal's Garde-Manger (it only took a month-in-advance reservation)... well, it was worth the wait! The lobster poutine was everything I'd hoped it would be : )

 On Saturday we headed out to the country for my family's annual salsa-making day. A day we all get together to turn my parent's garden harvest into deliciously spicy canned salsa. We've been doing this for 10 years now.... it has become quite the event!
 
Somehow it always seems to end with the men having a chilli pepper eating contest.
While the rest of us enjoy all the splendour of autumn in the country...


I hope you had a lovely weekend too : )
