This ones for Rick. Rick is on a pre Christmas diet and his only joy in life is looking at pictures of yummy food.
This was my first attempt at a Tourtiere, lamb, salt pork ribs, turnip, parsnip, carrots and spices.
There are so many ways to make this Quebec delicacy it can become confusing. I took several cooking suggestions and blended them into my own concoction.
If truth be known it is really just a deep dish meat pie, and lets not forget we have a jihad out against Robin Hood products until they reintroduce the Flaky Pastry range.
We attended the annual Christmas concert at the school last evening, it was very well attended as usual.
One thing that stood out, the number of vehicles outside, in many past years it would be all ski doos. The lack of snow is becoming bothersome for many.
I get the feeling that a few people will be testing the ice [on ski doo] today or tomorrow, folks with experience and knowledge of ice.
Unlike last year the ice should have ample time to set nice and thicken and stabilize, there is no snow forecast for the next seven days and temps into the -20's are on the cards.
After feasting your eyes on the picture above get out and go for a walk.
