Coming to Canada, from America, but of course...

W hen I was down in the States at my sister's house a few months ago she told me about this new reality show, 9 by Design, that she was hooked on. We then proceeded to sit on the couch all weekend and had a 9 by Design marathon while her husband cooked us yummy meals. Then I came back to Canada and was sad. I missed 9 by Design and I tried to remind myself that I had Sarah Richardson, Samantha Pynn, Suzanne Dimma and lots of other Canadian secret talent, but it just wasn't the same. Fortunately for me, 9 by Design has arrived! It premiers August 31st on W at 9pm and I get to enjoy it from the beginning all over again.

Dusk at Sydenham

We ate, we drank, and Oskar fished. It was a beautiful weekend in the country.

A pleasant surprise

While on our wine trail through Prince Edward County I had a hankering for a snack. That's when amid private residences we spotted what looked like a shop. It was not just a shop. It was cheese shop!! What goes better with wine then cheese, more specifically Fifth Town Artisan Cheese! It was amazing. We sampled almost every cheese in the shop and walked away our favourites (the washed-rind Cape Vessey and fresh cheese County Maple Bagel Chevre), along with some lavender honey goat ice cream. Yes it's as wonderful as it sounds.
If you do happen to be out visiting the wineries in PEC I highly recommend Norman Hardie's Winery. He is a master wine maker and his Chardonnay Cuvee L 2008 blew my mind!
