A Happy New Year!

With the holidays now behind us we are all settling back into our everyday lives. Children are back at school and we’re back at work and ultimately time for meals will be short. It’s time to break out the slow cooker and warming stews, chili, curries and roasts can be waiting for you when you get home.

You can use everyone’s fallback of beef either stew or roast (Blade, Crossrib or Brisket), chicken, pork stew, chops, tenderloin or loin roast. Then there is fabulous Ontario lamb shanks; perfect for slow cooking.

Or if you prefer you can try one of our pies. Tortiere was a great hit over Christmas and we will cut back on those, but we will make some if requested. Over the next few weeks we’ll be making some beef and chicken pot pies so look out for those.

We will also be adding to our range of pasties, there will still be the traditional beef, soon to be joined by “pork & apple” and a curried chicken flavours. These will be great as a quick lunch either warm or cold.

Comin Up

After the success of the Locavore event just before Christmas, we are once again taking to the road. On Jan 21st we will be attending the Living Locally Fair in Russell at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, 1211 South Russell Road.

We’ll be including some tips and recipes from week to week, these will also be added to the website . This weeks easy tip – Season your meat before cooking. Just a little salt and pepper about 20 minutes before you cook will provide you great results.
