Another month gone. Luckily, September still brings lovely weather and with an abundance of leftover fresh produce, not all is lost! I’m still seeing corn and zucchini in my near future, that’s for sure.

Salted Dulce de Leche Latte

I’m currently writing to you from out east. All I did in August was work, weekends included, so that I could take this week off and spend time camping in Tadoussac and then in Gaspésie Park. I’ve never been whale watching before, so Paul and I decided September would be a great month to hit the open road and relax on the Saint Lawrence River. We plan on hiking and sleeping in and relaxing like pros. My brain pleasure centres are tingling just thinking about it.

And with my badass summer playlist anything is possible.

We managed to enjoy the month during the time we did have off though! I went to the Osheaga music festival to see some of my favorite music artists on August long weekend and on August 2nd Paul and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary! To celebrate, Paul made homemade spinach and ricotta ravioli and an espresso chocolate mousse and I got busy making Pimm’s cup cocktails. I’m so happy I married a guy who likes to celebrate everything with a delicious meal. He’s my favorite.

We also ran a lot, despite the heat, to train for the Lachine Canal Half Marathon here in Montreal. It was Paul’s first half marathon and he did so well!! Way better than my first half marathon and with a knee injury to boot.

Another great reason to run? So many calories burned and so many calories get to be consumed that day. My favorite recipe that I made in August is definitely my French vanilla ice cream. A simple pleasure and so wonderfully creamy.

I also made a few recipes from other bloggers, that I suggest. Check out:
Sweet maple yogurt cake with rhubarb compote from Verbalized
Peach pie from A Couple Cooks
Avocado Tabbouleh from Cookie and Kate

Spinach Artichoke Pesto Pizza from Two Peas and Their Pod

Salted Dulce de Leche Latte

And this recipe? Total latte perfection with salted caramel to boot. You don’t NEED an espresso maker to make this at home (you can make perfectly good frothed milk on the stovetop), but an espresso maker makes life easier. An alternative method would be to make strong coffee with a French press, fill your cup half way full with coffee and then top it up with the salted dulce de leche steamed milk. No matter how you enjoy this, I promise you’ll be happy!

Happy September! xoxo
