Every year my family and I say, let’s go apple picking and every year we are just too busy to get out and do this fun activity. Well this year we managed to do it!

We decided to head out with another family that we have been around on and off throughout this whole pandemic. This way my daughter had a friend to be with and it made it more enjoyable.

Was I nervous about going with a full fledged pandemic going on? heck yes. Would safety protocols be put in place? Would people social distance? Mask wearing? I had a million questions. Being an outdoor activity I knew we could easily social distance and still have fun.

We decided to head out to Quinn Farm. My main concern was how many people would be in attendance. You had to pre-order your tickets online and only a limited amount of people would be allowed. When we pulled into the parking lot I saw all the cars and thought ” whoa lots of people”. I was pleasantly surprised that it was the RIGHT amount of people. Pre-pandemic the place would have have been so packed with families that anywhere you went , it was wall to wall people. Well that was not the case on this day. Sure there were lots of people, but being in such a large environment everyone was spread out and respecting social distancing . We were so impressed as it was the perfect amount of people. Everyone was wearing masks around the snack area, store and the barn of animals. You also had to wear your mask on the tractor ride which everyone was respecting.

Out in the fields you could take your mask off. The space was large enough that you were never in contact with anyone. It was so nice to be outside on such a beautiful day without a mask creating special memories with your loved ones.

The tractor rides were sprayed before people got on which I was very impressed with. Hand sanitizer stations were set up everywhere. In the snack area, before sitting at a picnic table, you had to spray your table and wipe it. The products and towels were provided for you as well as a sink area with soap and water to wash your hand properly before eating. I was really impressed with all the measures put in place and felt very safe.

All in all it was a fantastic day and we will cherish these memories with family and friends. I highly recommend getting out there and doing this family fun activity. The kids will have a blast. Mommy Approved !!

Plaza Pointe Claire is pleased to be joining forces with West Island Mommies. As some of you probably know, the Plaza has teamed up with West Island Mommies on several charity events over the years. Together they have raised money for organizations such as, Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation, West Island Community Shares and On Rock Community Services.

Now, they have decided to team up again and highlight some of your favourite Plaza Pointe Claire shops. You can find almost everything you need for the entire family at the Plaza. It’s one stop shopping at its best. Each week one of the Plaza’s shops will be showcased in West Island Mommies Business of Week feature starting September 14th.

Are you sick of the same old supper dishes like we were? Well that’s what where we were at a few weeks ago until we were introduced to évoilà5 . What’s évoilà5 ?

“évoilà5 is a unique concept that provides five balanced ready to cook nutritionist approved meals per week. No more long grocery lists, no more digging for recipes and no more lack of ideas… évoilà5 takes care of everything! Thanks to our ingenious meal bags, cooking dinner has never been easier or more fun. Spend more time with your family and start enjoying fresh meals made daily!”

Every week, we tend to have the same old dinner dishes. Lucky for me I have a fussy 12yr old who tends to not want to try anything new. When my husband and I decided to pick up a week’s worth of food from evoila5, we looked at the menu ahead of time. It included many meats we already ate but with a twist. I knew we would love the process of having all the ingredients at our fingertips.

I picked up our 5 bags of meals and anxiously could not wait to try out these delicious meals.

My 12 yr old daughter was excited to help with the cooking process. All 3 of us were in the kitchen together preparing our meal that night. It was lots of fun working together to get our meal ready.

With each meal we receive a recipe card explaining how to prepare the meal. The explanations are easy to follow and the whole family can be involved in the prep of your meal. All the ingredients are fresh and super delicious.

It was so wonderful to have all our meals planned out for the week with the ingredients at our finger tips. What I LOVE most about évoilà5 is that it’s not a Subscription. You are not forced to sign up every week. You can sign up as you wish. You get a weekly email with the menu for the following week and then you can place your order and pick up on the Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. In our busy lives, it’s so great to have healthy meals at your fingertips. There is no thinking about what you will have for dinner that night, it’s right there in your fridge and it only takes 30minutes.

They offer different sizes of meals depending on the size of your family.

2 to 3 portions- 94$ (all included)

4 to 5 portions- 135$ (all included)

More than ever we need to support our local businesses. This is a local grown company that has been in business for over 6 years. There are multiple locations all over Quebec with one in our own backyard in Pointe Claire. The process is easy. Order online or call it in, arrange for pick up, pick up your week’s worth of meals and enjoy!
