I'm so glad you could stop by. This is my personal blog of daily life and my journey through life. You will find a strong emphasis on family and friends as well as finding my ancestors through genealogy. Unlike my other blogs this blog is more of a catch-all so any topic is fair game.

Blog Your Blessing Sunday - Good Quality Food

Blog Your Blessings Sunday

Even as newlyweds back when our finances were stretched well beyond ever possibly being able to splurge on anything, the one thing we refused to do was skimp on food.   Good quality food has always been one aspect of life that we as a couple have focused on.  Food really is much more than physical nourishment! 

We have the very good fortune of living in beautiful Ontario, Canada where good food is plentiful.  Farm stands and orchards are within easy access so we aren't forced to have to buy produce in the grocery stores unless desired or out of season.  We buy our beef and pork directly from farmers we have known for years.  Our honey and maple syrup come directly from the beekeepers and sugar bush.  We eat a lot of locally caught fish mainly perch, pickerel and bass.  In fact, it would not be difficult for us to eat foods grown within the magic 100 mile radius of home.  There are salt mines, several cheese factories, grain mills, a multitude of wineries, mushroom farms, microbreweries, distillery, and just coming in under the 100 mile mark at 98.5 miles a sugar plant for processing sugar beets grown in Ontario.  Aside of a few seasonings like cinnamon, some nuts, rices, some fruits, teas and coffees we could easily eat within a 100 mile radius of our home.  What an absolutely amazing thing that is to be able to say!  It boggles the mind to think of how very lucky we are to be surrounded by and have easy access to such high quality, locally grown and produced foods.
