St. Joseph’s TORONTO WEST

Halloween

FEST supportstjoes.ca/events/twhf2019

On Sunday, November 3rd, hundreds of west-end families attended St. Joseph’s Toronto West Halloween Fest, presented by Scotiabank. It was cold and rainy outside, but that didn’t stop everyone from having fun indoors at CF Sherway Gardens. Citytv’s Shem was a SPOOKtacular host and it was great to see so many come together for the spirited parade, lively performances by Sonshine & Broccoli, the Swansea School of Dance, and activities like Animal Pose Yoga, Spooky Storytime, arts and crafts and so much more. This was only possible thanks to the generous sponsors: Lead Sponsor Scotiabank, our Venue Sponsor CF Sherway Gardens, Media Sponsor Citytv, the Children’s Dental Centre, and the many CF Sherway Retailers who were part of the trick-or-treat trail. Proceeds from the event will support better west-end emergency care at St. Joe’s, where they have more than 100,000 visits to the Emergency Department annually, including 16,000 from children. If you missed your chance to support this great cause, please give online at www.supportstjoes.ca/ events/twhf2019

AGO EXHIBIT:

EARLY RUBENS October 12, 2019 – January 5, 2020 ago.ca/exhibitions/early-rubens

The AGO is thrilled to showcase Peter Paul Rubens (1577– 1640) in a new exhibition featuring the North American debut of some of his most ambitious works. Rubens is one of the most revered painters in Western art – widely recognized for his riveting, dynamic and even cinematic style, known as the Baroque. The exhibition highlights works the Flemish master produced between 1609 and 1621 – a crucial time that was the artist’s most innovative and inspired. This period was significant for the evolution of Rubens’s style and for the revitalization of Antwerp, Belgium – his hometown and a city once celebrated as the “gem of Belgium.” His return to Antwerp in 1608, after studying in Italy for eight years, coincided with a period of relative peace for the war-torn city. His invaluable connections with the city’s elites fuelled his meteoric rise to fame. He launched a renowned studio that established his distinctive style and made him a driving force behind the city’s renewal. One of the most famous and valuable paintings in the AGO Collection, The Massacre of the Innocents underscores Rubens’s achievement as a painter and provides powerful insight into the mindset of the citizens of Antwerp in 1610, giving expression to their collective trauma instigated by religious warfare. Visitors will see this work in a new way and discover the incredibly important place it holds in Rubens’s development.

This clean and healthy dessert is so delicious and one that you can feel great about eating. So good, that in fact, it would make perfect breakfast.

Directions STEP 1. Preheat oven to 375˚F. STEP 2. Hollow out the apples, but don't use an apple corer—it will slice all the way through the apple, which is not what we're after. You want to remove the core and seeds while keeping the bottom of the apple intact so you have a nice little vessel in the middle to fill with the crisp. STEP 3. Start by using a paring knife to carefully slice around the top core of the apple, making sure not to go all the way through to the bottom. Then pull out what you cut and use a spoon to scoop out the rest. Make sure that all seeds are out. I find that the sharp edges of a 1/2 tsp measuring spoon are ideal for scooping out the core but any small sharp spoon or even a melon baller will do. STEP 4. Place the apples in a roasting dish that holds them snugly.

Ingredients 8 Gala or Fuji Apples (they hold their shape best) 1 cup Water

FOR THE TOPPING 1 cup/100 grams Rolled Oats (I like large flake or old fashioned) 1/2 cup/45 grams Almond Flour 1/4 cup/30 grams Chopped Pecans, Almonds or Walnuts 1/4 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut 2 tbsp Maple Syrup

STEP 5. Mix all the Topping ingredients together (by hand). Spoon the topping evenly into each apple to overflowing. Pour the water into the bottom of the pan. Cover pan with foil. STEP 6. Cover the roasting dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes, uncover and bake for another 25 minutes or until the apples are soft, shrunken and the crisp is browned. STEP 7. In the meantime, make the Tahini Drizzle by mixing all the ingredients together with a whisk. STEP 8. Serve warm with the Tahini Drizzle drizzled over the top.

1 tsp Vanilla 2 tbsp Softened Coconut Oil

FOR THE SWEET TAHINI DRIZZLE 2-3 tbsp Tahini 1 tbsp Date Molasses (silan) 2 tbsp Water 1-2 tsp Lemon Juice

CLEAN EATING NOTES:

Oats have been used in herbal medicine, as a way to calm the nervous system. They are a great healthy comfort food – that has been shown to relax and calm anxiety. They are also a great source of fibre and plant based protein. Oats are naturally gluten free, and are a great way to get a boost of feel good B vitamins (the precursor to serotonin).
