Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Due to Covid, we are back in a lockdown here again, with many businesses closed or with reduced hours and/or customers. I know the Assiniboine Park Zoo is closed, but was delighted to find out that Fort Whyte Alive is open. The hours are the same, but they were in the process of setting up… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Looking out my Window

It isn’t very warm out here this morning (2C), but when the sun shines it doesn’t feel too bad. I have my window wide open and leaned out to take a few photos this morning. I took my camera to the window this morning because I heard Canada Geese and saw 2 of them that… Continue reading Looking out my Window

Now I’ve Got It

It is amazing the difference that fresh flour can make to a loaf of bread. I might see if I can find some brown or whole wheat flour to mix up my own mixture again. I did like the combination of the 2 and starting over with a new mixture should be good. I used… Continue reading Now I’ve Got It

Sour Dough Bread Experience

Since my last post, I have made my first 2 loaves of bread from my sour dough starter. The first loaf did not rise much at all and turned out to be very a very heavy bread. I did eat a couple of slices, but have to admit that it wasn’t great. Most of the… Continue reading Sour Dough Bread Experience

Keeping Safe

Covid-19 is not the first pandemic that has threatened this world – but it is the current one. There was no internet for the other big ones though, and this has been a method of spreading the information (both true and untrue information) quickly for this pandemic. So – how are you doing? I have… Continue reading Keeping Safe

Crockpot Garlic Sausage & Veggies

Every once in awhile I make something to eat that I like, so I share it with you.  As usual, I changed this a fair amount from the original one I found that was called Grilled Sausage & Vegetables in Foil Packet.  You can find the original recipe here, but searching the same name, I… Continue reading Crockpot Garlic Sausage & Veggies

I think I’ve Got it Right Now

I’ve made a couple of variations of the meat pie made using the crescent dinner rolls as the crust, but I tried something a little bit different today. The meat part can be whatever you like, but my favourite is ground beef, mushrooms, fresh spinach and cream of mushroom soup.  I don’t measure anything.  … Continue reading I think I’ve Got it Right Now

Italian Crescent Casserole

Every once in awhile a recipe appeals to me and I decide to give it a try.  If you have seen any of my food blogs before, you will know that I seldom follow it completely though.  🙂 This one – found at Pillsbury is no exception.  I like to use recipes as a general… Continue reading Italian Crescent Casserole

Milk Tart (Melktert)

Milk Tart or Melktert is an African dessert.  In Afrikans, it is called Melktert, but since I am not African, I will just call it by the English name of Milk Tart.  As you might guess, milk is the primary ingredient in this yummy pie.  🙂 I had never heard of Milk Tart before going… Continue reading Milk Tart (Melktert)

Pumpkin Pie

I finally decided to use up the rest of the can of pumpkin and make myself a pumpkin pie yesterday.  I took the easy way and used a pre-made graham wafer crust instead of making a pie crust, and followed the recipe on the evaporated milk can. I don’t think I’ve ever actually made a… Continue reading Pumpkin Pie
