One Step Closer!

Every year we try to find ways to make working in our small kitchen more efficient. This year has been no exception as we remove, rearrange, and add shelving. Everything has been scrubbed to a shine and I am so happy to be able to say the store is now ready!

We are working on our menu, followed by a stock run, then it's on to prep!

We're very exited to get our 8th season underway!

Easter Weekend - Life Happened

So the plan this past weekend was to post an enthusiastic, excited announcement of our Easter weekend opening. We had a month long schedule worked out with a countdown to opening day. Once again, life is what happened while we were busy making other plans.

Bill and I try our best to keep our personal lives separate from the business, however, the fact is, our personal lives do impact our business at times and can create unavoidable closures or in this case delays.

Two weeks ago Bill became quite ill and within a few days was knocked off his feet. A few days later I became quite ill (of course I blame Bill). A few days later Bill started to feel better, and a few days after that I didn't. As a matter of fact I became quite ill and just yesterday completed a round of antibiotics. We're not sure what the virus was, it started off feeling like a really bad cold, but it packed a nasty punch and I'm still not clear of it. To make matters worse, an unrelated health issue that I began dealing with a couple of years ago has returned and it's creating its own chaos.

Long story short; we won't be opened for Easter weekend this year.

We are anxious to get our doors open and get our 2016 season underway, but we have to be healthy and we have some work ahead of us to get ready.

We are so sorry. We hate to disappoint. I'm hoping to post an opening day very soon.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Best wishes.

Walking on Thin Ice


It has been snowing here today. We have a cold snap on the way and so we decided to get out and enjoy the weather before we have to hunker down for a few days.

We stopped at a rock face to admire the ice. (Visible from Gelert road on the rail trail.) When we walked past it a few days ago it was melting and what you see is the result. Nature's art is always the best there is. It's absolutley stunning!

Anyhoo, we were also playing with Mojo, throwing sticks from an old beaver ...dam. Fun right?
It was until we learned a valuable lesson; you can't see what's underneath all that freshly fallen snow. Bill stepped off the side of the trail to retreive a stick and what he thought was solid ground was actually thin ice and he broke through up to his knees. He was soaked and we had a bit of a walk home.

There have been a lot of warnings this winter about thin ice. There is a lot of open water out there and it's not safe.

Please, please be careful, especially with all this fresh fallen snow because you just don't know know what's underneath. Bill's fine. He was fortunate, it was a puddle (a deep puddle), but if puddles aren't frozen, lakes certainly aren't.

Be smart. Be safe.

Have a wonderful day!

'Kayso, last night Bill went in to work on his latest painting and I was all like; "Hm? What to do?" And it just so happened I was in the kitchen... alone... talking to myself. Not good.

So I turned on some tunes, turned on the oven and got to baking and yes, this is a tease because these are going on the menu!

What are they? Well, you'll just have to visit us this spring or summer to find out.

Nomnomnom nomnom nomnom!

Sorry, my mouth was full. Have a great day!
