it's the halifax crafters winter market this weekend at the olympic centre. i actually just got home - it was open from 5-9 tonight & will be open from 10-5 tomorrow & sunday. for those of you who don't know where the olympic centre is, the entrance is on hunter street & the building is on the corner of windsor & cunard. it's free admission, there's great tunes & it's the best holiday market around, it's definitely worth a visit. my table is located upstairs, right at the top of the stairs up from laughing whale coffee.
leslie will be running the show for me at the seaport tomorrow (i'm skipping the seaport on sunday). there are a ton of frozen meals at the moment. this week i made a batch of mediterranean vegetable ragu which is a vegetarian & gluten free option. there's roasted red peppers, zucchini, red onion, kalamata olives, swiss chard, feta, parm & goat cheese in a super flavourful marinara sauce. it's served with a side of quinoa dressed lightly with olive oil, garlic & basil.
