Fresh peaches and crispy, crunchy topping with vanilla ice cream was the finishing act for tonight’s retro bbq steak dinner. 
Thanks @bakerboy_to for poaching and peeling the fruit, not an easy task.

When one is at a cottage food is the ultimate priority so trust me when I say that smoked salmon sandwiched between crunchy chips of your choice is a remarkable late afternoon snack before a g and t. It’s the cottage version of smoked salmon on crispy rosti potatoes. I guess you could serve it with dips ... #cottagelife #cottagefood

Cookies cookies cookies, so many cookies. @ethanlourose your chocolate chip ones look delicious. Good thing they were still too hot to eat when we came home last night.

Ginger cookie ice cream sandwich made by @bakerboy_to after a delicious dinner was just the right ending to a perfect evening.

How nice it was seeing Ruth Klaussen with her wonderful @monfortedairy cheeses. We had her goat feta in a tomato and arugula salad and it was so good that I think we will have it again tonight.

If you ever had Ovaltine as a kid you will appreciate the iced latte version @ellas.uncle. It is a throwback in a refreshing kind of way.

The heat wave continues as our local farmers and artisans pack up their vans and head to @soraurenmarket this afternoon. These beautiful soaps are handmade by an organic farmer and smell wonderful.
I can also tell you that the field tomatoes grown by Clover Roads Organic Farm are delicious and they too will be there with all the other growers, 3-7.

Take it easy, slow down the pace and enjoy the long weekend. It’s an August thing.

Very glad we stopped by to wish @thedepanneur a happy 7th anniversary. Len, I am honoured to be part of the Dep’s dna. You’ve done incredible things since the doors first opened and I look forward to seeing what’s next. Enjoy your well deserved time off. 
@corryoo so good seeing you!
