Restaurant at Lake Winnipeg – what kind of service do you expect, what type of food and what range of choices?

Restaurant at Lake Winnipeg - what kind of service do you expect, what type of food and what range of choices? There are many people that have cottages along Lake Winnipeg. Lately it has been obvious that there has been a generation change which is actually still ongoing. Cottage owners tend to be younger families and younger owners. Obviously this younger generation has different expectations than their parents and grand parents. That also includes eating out and just food in general. This is why we are creating this poll

Thanksgiving Dinner at Lake Winnipeg

There are many ways to celebrate and express thanks at Thanksgiving. Even in difficult times, there are always things for which to be grateful. Many Resaurants are closed, because of the bad economy. But on Traverse Bay Corner, the Idle Thyme Restaurant didn't. It is still open. (Thanks Cheryl) So you can go there for your Thanksgiving Dinner.

Listeriosis, another food scare in Canada this summer

First it was tomatoes from the States with salmonella, then salmonella in Cilantro now its listeriosis in meat products! This last food scare is the worst yet. Quite a few people have actually died from food poisoning and the resulting infection. The problem seems to originate from a Maple Leaf processing plant in Toronto.

Salmonella in Cilantro, Coriander recall

My next problem was Cilantro. Now what the heck might that be. I had to check it up. Cilantro is actually the name of the plant that produces the Coriander seeds. I like using freshly crushed dried Coriander for Lamb Provencial, together with fresh rosemary, thyme and garlic in a red wine marinade. Does that mean I have to leave out the coriander seeds, or is just the green part of the plant infected? (which I have never used anyway)

Summer Winds Festival in Victoria Beach

One of the goals of the concert was to raise funds to repair the recent vandalism. Some of the profit was to go towards the upgrade of the baseball park and skateboard pad and the purchase of sport’s equipment. It featured childrens activities food stands and a skate-board park. - and of course: Dr. Rage & The Uppercuts.

Soring food prices. Contaminated Tomatoes

Well if it is any consolation, they aren't sure it's the tomatoes! It could be chillies, hot peppers, jalapenos or something else too. So don't worry about buying those red solanaceous herbs or Paradise Apples as the Germans used to call tomatoes. The peppers you are putting into your salad could be just as contagious!

berry picking

Strawberry time is here! So is row rage!

There is even a new phenomenom called 'row rage' that has pickers protecting their rows against others trying to sneek-pick berries from rows other than the ones they were assigned to. So far there haven't been any real phyisikal fights, but apparently it got pretty close a few times.
