Bruce and Louise from St. Catharines, ON Write~Hey Joey!

Is Spring ever going to get here? We’ve been getting extreme
weather in the Niagara Peninsula, much the same as Cape Ann.

You can tell
Sista Felicia that her receipt last week of the Peppercorn Flank Roast was
Splendid! Very tender, extremely tasty and a big hit at our Sunday supper, even
though I had to bundle up when facing the BBQ.

The Pork Chops are next
on the winter-time cook list!

All the best,

Bruce & Louise –
St. Catharines, ON

I put a twist on my Pasta Gorgonzola recipe  tonight … I received a huge wedge of Stilton Gorgonzola as a gift for my New Years Year celebtration last week, from our dear family friend Toby Pett … AKA  “The One and only all around great guy Toby Pett and GMG co-podcast host.” We have enjoyed snacking on it with cured olives, roasted red peppers and assorted crackers all week. I had only a small piece saved to make Pasta Gorgonzola  for my daughter Amanda before her return to school, her favorite and a recipe featured on page 208 in my cookbook “Gifts of Gold.” Tonight I decided to  served it over a bed of baby spinach and few toasted pecans… It was simply Delicious!
