A Proper Autumn Weekend

We had proper chilly fall weather this weekend, and we celebrated with some very autumnal activities!

Saturday was a rainy day, so we spent it baking and cooking. I made chocolate zucchini muffins (recipe in an upcoming post!) and Chris made homemade pasta with a hearty meat sauce.

Sunday was cold, but dry, so we trekked out to Jasper to go apple picking at Kilmarnock Orchards in the morning. From there, we went into Merrickville and snatched up some great finds from the $2 bin at the vintage record store, followed by lunch by the fire at a local pub.

We’re starting to get a lot of squash and assorted root vegetables in our CSA, so we made a warm, spicy squash soup for dinner (recipe for that will be in an upcoming post as well). We had it with some fresh crusty bread, and it was the perfect end to a proper fall weekend!

I hope everyone’s enjoying the best season of the year!
