Re: Favorite videos

Just realized I spelt it wrong - should be "tourtiere". It's basically a meat pie, made from a mixture of minced beef and pork. Here's a link to a recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/20752/fren ... tourtiere/

Re: Favorite videos

Oh my, that takes me back. My French Canadian uncle who had the most beautiful baritone used to sing this every Christmas Eve at the family gathering at my grandparents. He sang it in French, of course. "Minuit Chretien". Still brings tears to my eyes. BTW, my British grandmother used to m...

Re: Netflix Stranger Things

Tons of good things on Netflix, but lots of dross as well. Good idea is to always check the rating of a program on IMDB before you find you've wasted an hour of your life you'll never get back. (Speaking from personal experience.)

You've just reminded me that we've watched the first one and have forgotten to watch the rest. Time for a binge watch!

Re: Did Everyone have a good Thanksgiving?

JKEerie, sound like you've bought a beautiful stove! Did you know that Samsung is the top rated range at the moment? I noticed that both JKEerie and Draclvr have stoves that feature steam cleaning. The 2 year old stove I just replaced (I know, sheer extravagance) had steam cleaning which I hated. I ...

Re: booyah?

I thought it was just an expression too, but if it's a chicken and veg stew I've been making it for years! You'll have to ask your friend for the receipt, mbday.

Carl Sagan Day

According to Google, it's Carl Sagan Day and Zen Pencils, a strip on GoComics, published this one back in February 2014. The artwork is fantastic, especially the panel with all famous people through the ages. Most definitely worth a minute or two of your time. BTW, mes sentiments exactement! http://...

Re: The Recipe Exchange.

This sounds good and definitely worth a try. I've put lemon pepper on my grocery list. Re pounding the breast thin, I invested in a meat hammer a couple of years ago and am amazed how versatile it is. It's especially good for crushing garlic too.

Re: The Recipe Exchange.

I made a beef goulash for supper tonight. The meat turned out moist and tender and tasty. Unfortunately only after pouring meat and gravy over the noodles, did I realize the pasta was severely undercooked. At this point, not a lot could be done but struggle through. Won't make that mistake again! (B...

Re: Happy Halloween

We had about 15 trick or treaters around, which was huge numbers more than we've had before. Luckily I got some mini chocolate bars in to hand out! One tiny little Chinese Cinderella, only 22 months old - just so cute you could eat her. BTW, have you ever tried eating a plate of spaghetti and answer...

Re: Home Upset Home

I was amazed to see that same firm does window cleaners too. I'm not in the market for a vacuum but I'm working on himself for the window cleaner!
