This weekend is Father’s Day and by the looks of all the yellow on my weather app, it looks like one that is going to be spent on the patio! Hooray for sunshine!! My dad loves spending time on the deck with the grill going, so I rounded up some of my favourites that will even be easy enough for me to do, while dad relaxes for a change.
If you are a Mushroom Lover like I am, chances are you eat as many mushrooms as you can! Growing up, my mom’s cooking was full of mushrooms and her favourite was always the Portabella. Mine was white button. White’s just seemed so easy- they were perfect on pizza and was always a favourite of mine on a veggie platter. Every person I know has that one go-to mushroom variety and until I began my time here at Mushrooms Canada, I wasn’t even fully aware of all of my choices! Here’s a brief breakdown of the 7 different varieties that our local Farmers grow in Canada.
Yesterday was the 6th Annual Foodland Ontario Celebration of Local Food at Queen’s Park, Toronto. It truly was a farmer’s market of Ontario commodities and a celebration of the wonderful foods Ontario has to offer. It was such an excellent opportunity to Share the Good, especially with our Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Ted McMeekin, who stopped by the Mushrooms Canada booth!
One sure-fire way to make your mom smile this Mother’s Day is to take cooking off of her to-do list. Take her to her favourite place with her favourite people or better-yet, pamper her at home with your latest, greatest creations and really WOW her. The day of cooking for mom doesn’t have to stop at Breakfast in Bed, but boy should it start there!
