The cooler evenings of fall may make you feel like curling up with some warm satisfying food. The days are shorter and this may make you feel like you have even less time to prepare balanced, home-cooked meals. The blog team at Williams and McDaniel wants to help you prepare dinner easily. We can’t show help you in the kitchen, but we can help with this list of easy-to-make, one-pot dinners to cozy up to in Elora.

 

Pizza Casserole

Before you order another pricey pizza delivered to your Elora apartment, consider this Pizza Casserole. It’s all the delicious pizza toppings that you love, combined with egg noodles, in one pot. The recipe calls for pepperoni, ground beef and green pepper, but you can substitute whatever your favourites are. This is one easy dinner that is easy to get your whole family to eat.

 

Spicy Coconut Chicken Casserole

Put an exotic twist on chicken casserole with a little Thai red curry paste and light coconut milk in this one-pot Spicy Coconut Chicken Casserole. You can add some extra veggies to this recipe in addition to the red bell peppers and green beans. Some zucchini, carrots and/or baby bok choy would be great choices.

 

Butternut Squash Baked Risotto

This Butternut Squash Baked Risotto is a  meatless marvel of rich, creamy and satisfying risotto without all the work. Butternut squash is a hearty part of the fall harvest and lends a layer of seasonal flavour to savour. You can save time by cutting up the squash earlier in the week and storing it in the fridge, in a sealed container.

 

Spicy Eggs and Potatoes

Any time of the day is a good time for eggs. These Spicy Eggs and Potatoes make for a satisfying meal, no matter where the hands on the clock are. Pan fried potatoes, nutrient-dense kale, creamy goat cheese and eggs. Dinner is ready.

 

The Williams and McDaniel blog team hopes these one-pot dinners will make the cool evenings of fall a little cozier and a little easier.

Living in Elora means that you are never far from some of the most awe-inspiring natural beauty in all of the Grand River Valley. The Elora Gorge features many scenic lookouts from its 22 metre high cliffs, great fishing, hiking, camping and more. Get to know the gorge, in this week’s post from the Williams and McDaniel blog team.

 

Hiking

Some of the most breathtaking scenic hiking trails in the province can be enjoyed at the Elora Gorge. There are 3 kilometres of walking trails with spectacular views of the 22 metre deep gorge. For your safety, only hike on marked trails. The trails are shown in the park brochure. The park is only a 5 or 6 minute drive from the Executive Suites at 145 Kertland Street, Elora.

 

Fishing

Some of the best brown trout fishing in all of North America can be found in the stretch of the Grand River that flows through the Elora Gorge. Why not try your luck this summer? Most anglers wade into the river, which can be slippery, so wading cleats are recommended. Make sure you follow provincial fishing regulations.

 

Tubing

An exciting way to see the gorge in all it’s glory is to ride an inner tube down the river! Look up at the steep cliffs and natural beauty all around you as you flow with the current. Be sure to check the tubing conditions before you leave.

 

Camping

If you’re looking to leave the comfort of your Elora home and spend the night in the great outdoors, the Elora Gorge is the place to do it. There are 150 campsites serviced with water and electrical and another 230 unserviced sites, if you’re looking to rough it. There is no alcohol permitted in the park or campsites. You can book your site online. The entrance to the park is located at 7400 Wellington County Road 21, only a 5 minute drive from Sandstone Apartments (120 -122 David Street East, Elora).
People travel for hours to get a glimpse of the Elora Gorge, but living at your Williams and McDaniel rental property in Elora means this sought after destination is practically in your backyard.

The final night of the Elora Festival wraps up with Nine Lessons and Carols of Summer, a fun summery twist on the Christmas tradition.

 

Though the festival is centred around musical performances, there are other events happening during the 16-day span. These include a book sale, a 35th anniversary quilt fundraiser and the Elora Festival Kids Camp.

apartments for rent in Elora, green living, healthy living, dining, Elora Apartments, Apartments Elora, Apartments for Rent in Elora, Elora apartment rentals, Apartments in Elora, Apartment rentals in Elora, Elora Apartments for RentIn recent years, the concept of “Meatless Monday” has started to gain traction with the general population. This trend is all about sustainable, healthy eating by cutting out meat products at least once a week. Some look at this as a healthy way to keep a clean diet and others look at it as an environmentally friendly action that reduces greenhouse gas emissions. No matter what the reason, it is clear that Meatless Monday will be around for some time. Today, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together an explanation of Meatless Monday and a guide to help residents of the Sandstone Apartments and Executive Suites in Elora get involved with this trend in a safe and healthy manner.

 

While we may not be aware, the foods we eat have a large impact on the environment. According to Earthsave Canada, “animal agriculture is responsible for 18 to 25 percent of global warming emissions worldwide.” Over 70 percent of deforestation in the Amazon is a result of cattle ranches and feed production, making the livestock sector one of the largest sources of water pollution worldwide. Producing animal protein requires the use of more resources for a smaller yield, whereas plant proteins require fewer resources and yield more results.

 

Diets low in meat, eggs and dairy and higher in vegetables and fruits, according to the World Health Organization and Food and Agriculture Organization (WHO/FAO), have been associated with a lower risk of Type 2 Diabetes, various types of cancer, Heart Disease and Osteoporosis. The Elora Farmers’ Market, which is a five-minute drive and 25-minute walk from the Elora apartments, is the place to visit for fresh, local produce. Simply going meatless one day a week can make an incredible difference a big difference to your health.

 

If you’re worried that cutting meat will also cut the protein from your diet, worry not. Protein can be obtained from beans, whole grains, nuts and vegetables, which boast all those healthy benefits listed above. Meatless Monday’s Straight Talk on Protein article outlines a short list of protein sources you can enjoy on Meatless Monday. It is also worth noting that as a global average; only 30 percent of protein is derived from animal sources. All of these healthy options are available at Dar’s Country Market located at 6458 Wellington Road 7. The store is a six-minute drive and 48-minute walk from the Sandstone Apartments and a five-minute drive and 24-minute walk from the Executive Suites.

 

Get started on your Meatless Monday cooking by visiting Pinterest for arrays of meal recipes that you won’t believe are meatless. Skinny Ms’ Skinny Lasagna Rolls and Two Peas and Their Pod’s Crispy Black Bean Quinoa Burritos and Avocado Mac and Cheese are some delicious options to start with.

 

Other great Meatless Monday recipe resources are Post Punk Kitchen, Meat-free Mondays UK, RecipeZaar.com, VegWeb.com and PCRM.org. Grab the last-minute ingredients for your Meatless Monday at Foodland located at 3646 Lobsinger Line in St. Clements. The store is a 31-minute drive from the Sandstone Apartments and a 33-minute drive from the Executive Suites. Make a change this Monday by going meatless for your health and the environment.
