I love the outdoors, don’t you? The smell of the air when it rains, the coolness of a breeze on a hot sunny day. The warmth of the sun on your flesh when you lie down and let the world go by. How amazing it is, this world of ours.

Now we are moving into another vibrant time, when the trees and shrubs close ranks to offer a cascade of earthy colours, and we cheerily look on as the changed colour patterns gradually settle into the landscape around us.

Don’t you just love spring? I know we Manitobans love the winter, hardened to it by our way of life, but spring is something quite apart. The melting of the snow, the garden coming to life, the birds greeting us in the morning with their melodious outpourings.

Spring surely is a time of new beginnings. Venturing into the greenhouse and starting seeds – that’s my way of knowing spring really is here. The smell of the soil always brings on my smile: happy pheromones. Continue reading Springtime brings super sandwiches with friends

There are many variances of pulled pork, from smoked to barbecued to slow cooked, all typically using the harder pieces of the pig to cook. You could cook anywhere from a whole pig down to a shoulder. This recipe calls for the shoulder. Continue reading Pulled pork gets a slow cook
