Last Days of Summer

Autumn looms, and we welcome the respite from heat and humidity.  Just as in Montana, though, it is a bittersweet time of year - the harvest rush, fitting in the last few outdoor activities while it still feels like summer, and resuming the more demanding pace that school, work and life demand after a leisurely summer.

Much of September has been occupied with food, which we have happily found in our backyard, down the street, across town, and out in la campagne (the countryside).  For more late summer fun, read these posts about Cap Rouge, the Cirque de Soleil, and the Centre-de-Québec.

Keep scrolling for photo highlights of recent menus- bon appetit!

This is such a beautiful post Bethann! I love the looks of the breakfast sandwich! Looks like you've been busy this harvest. I got to try a pat-a-pan squash this summer. Yum! The market is so so beautiful! I miss having a garden with nasturtiums. Have you tried making capers with nasturtium pods??
