I was blessed with two boys who were never picky eaters until recently. Out of nowhere, my four-year-old insists on pasta or macaroni for every meal. He still lets me pair it with some veggies on the side but I felt much better giving him pasta knowing that the noodles and sauce were responsibly sourced. It was our first time trying Anna’s organic strained tomato puree that is authentically Italian, paired with their Paese Mio fusilli noodles and if I didn’t know any better I would have thought it was made special from Nona. It’s safe to say with a little parmesan on top it was a big hit with the boys.
Another one of our All-time favourites is of course The Garlic Box. Since the weather has started warming up, we have been taking full advantage of the BBQ. One staple in our house is The Garlic box steak splash. They are a Local Grower located in Hensall, Ontario who Grow and specialize in all things Garlic. The steak splash was awarded Best new product in Canada and is sure to impress any guests you may have.

The kids and I are excited watching our seeds grow, dreaming of all our garden will be in the summer however, our 3-inch tomato plants aren’t going to be doing us any favours any time soon.

Although our gatherings may be smaller, perhaps our only engagement is those within our walls, it is still so important to feel confident in what we’re putting in our bodies and to know where it came from. Make time for little things like adding small herb clippings to the top of your dish to give it that gourmet look or lighting a small tea light with dinner. Those little touches make it all the more special.
