I frequently wear an Ontario handmade and dyed headband when I'm cooking which has the phrase, "Stay mindful" imprinted on it. It's a reminder to stay in the moment and live life day-to-day, celebrating what is as it happens. I think about that phrase as the flour sticks to my forehead, dough pastes itself to my cuticles, two timers beep simultaneously, croissants all of a sudden speed up proofing, the dishwasher finishes a cycle, I remember that I forgot paper bags on the counter at home, I curse out loud because I ran out of baking powder, and a Dandy Warhol's song begins playing on the radio.
I can't help but live in the moment or else something will burn. And sometimes it does.
I don't know where September went.
But I do know this weekend I will be selling my wares at Howe Family Farm Market.
If you're looking for creamy pumpkin pies prepared with warming spices, real cream, Howe's very own pie pumpkins, and handmade flaky pastry - the corner of highway #45 (John Wise Line) and Rogers Side Road is where I'll be.
9-inch pumpkin ($10), apple crumble ($15), & pecan pies ($15) will be available.
Open Saturday, October 12 from 9-6 and Sunday, October 13 from 11-?? or until I'm sold out!
Eating. Drinking. Sharing.
