Metro's Annual Harvest From Home Program & Giveaway

So last week I was delivered a basket of dry goods, a recipe card and a $50 Metro Gift Card to check out Metro’s Harvest from Home program. It’s a program that proudly supports our local farmers (more than 100 farms) in Ontario, a sure-fire way to bring us our freshest produce!

Truthfully, before I received this opportunity to check out Metro, I had no idea they had such a program in place. So once again I’m highly impressed that the store puts so much in to sponsoring our local growers and communities, in short, our economy.

So the girls and I went to Metro, picked out a nice spaghetti squash, some other veggies and tofu, followed the recipe card and (the best part) got to spend some girl time making a wholesome healthy dinner to share together.

The meal itself was pretty easy to make, a lot easier than I thought it would be. The last time I cooked with spaghetti squash, I didn't have too good of an experience, but I'm glad I tried it again, because it wasn't bad. The meal turned out great and the flavors of all the ingredients worked perfect together!
