What’s cooking?  Looking forward to this week’s daily home-made dinners, which are so nice to warm up with the cold winter weather we are having.  Did you know that all our delicious meals are prepared in our kitchen by our skilled team members, and all menus are reviewed by our corporate dietician to ensure we provide nutritious meals that include all Canadian Food Guidelines?  Below is a sample of a few choices of dinners that our residents have options to choose from that always include main entrée, starch option & 2 veggies.

This week we look forward to: Turkey Kiev Meatballs served with jasmine rice and sweet snap peas & savory carrots, Lemon Thyme Chicken with potato wedges au gratin, & sautéed Red Peppers & seasoned spinach, Honey Garlic Chicken served with creamy mashed potatoes & minted peas & seasoned diced turnip, and Butter Garlic Baked Salmon.

Has anyone else’s gardening skills improved during quarantine like mine have?

I planted myself on the couch at the beginning of March and I’ve grown significantly since!
