Though we had a bit of a reprieve today, the weather in Winnipeg has definitely taken a turn towards fall. Last week, I really wanted something summer-worthy. Something to remind me of simple dinners at home when it was too hot to really cook. Or dinners out at the campground using produce bought at the little vegetable stands along the highway. Can you tell I'm a bit homesick?

|Boiled sweet corn on the cob, blackened red snapper (recipe here), hashbrowns, and pan-fried beet greens with garlic.|
As much as I love having Hubs here, sometimes you just need to feel close to your other loved ones. Can I be blamed for doing it through food? As it turned out, my mom made a very similar dinner the same night that we had this. Great minds, I tell ya.
Wishing she could get truly amazing (read: Ontario) tomatoes all year round,
