Saturday (yes, l have been a wee bit tardy in my posts), some friends and l went on a little trip to St. Jacobs, Ontario. It is a Mennonite community about an hour and a half to the north west of Toronto.
The weatherman said it was Freezing Fog, but it sure was pretty.
Our destination was the farmers market, Main St. for a wee bit of shopping (yes, l actually sucked it up and went shopping - OK, l went browsing while they shopped) and then off to a little Mennonite restaurants called Anna Mae's for a lunch of Broasted Chicken.
A cold way to travel this time of year.
The farmers market - beautiful flower bouquets for only $20.
At the farmers market l bought bagels & homemade fudge. I sure wish we had such a great market closer to home. In the summer the market is expanded outside and triple the size with all the local farmers selling their produce.
Main St. was quite busy and I have to admit, it had some really cool shops. They were very quaint and very pretty compared to Walmart.
Shop on Main St.
Snowman is cute, but l would prefer "Let it warm up" written on it.
Lunch was delicious (sorry, no pictures). The broasted chicken was so moist and tender. It's cooked in a pressure cooker, with a table spoon of oil, and it comes out like southern fried chicken. The chicken is raised local, organically. The prices were cheap under $7.00 for two pieces with two sides.
We finished it off with homemade carrot cake. Yumm.
It was so good we bought a slab to take home from their bakery section.
