Skate & Share Food Drive Update
Thanks to everyone who contributed to our 4th Skate & Share food drive on December 8th,2012.The event was held at the Meadowvale 4 rinks arena, and the hot chocolate, coffee and timbits were in plentiful supply. The ratio of raffle prizes to attendees was about one to one and ranged from prizes for boys and girls to the moms and dads, including a new iPod and three iPod Shuffles.
Thanks go to Danijela, Jelena and Sandra for their behind the scenes work, and of course to all who attended -your generous food donations (which we matched) allowed us to deliver an SUV load of food to the Compass Community Outreach Centre -a similar amount to last year.
Old-Fashioned Crusty Bread in a Cast-Iron Pot
This recipe needs 12-18 hours to rise before baking and is much easier than you’d think. Prepare it the evening and bake it in the morning! You will need a large bowl and a cast iron pot (dutch oven) with a lid.
Ingredients 3 cups unbleached white flour 1 3/4 tsp salt 1/2 tsp yeast 1 1/2 cups waterIn a large bowl, whisk all of the dry ingredients together. Add the water. Mix well manually using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are well incorporated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit on the counter (do not refrigerate) for 12-18 hours. The dough will rise and fill the bowl.
When its time to bake, preheat oven to 450F. Then place your empty cast iron pot with lid on into the oven to preheat for 30 minutes.
While the pot is heating, empty the dough onto a heavily floured surface. Shape it into a round shape. Cover with the plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Using oven mitts, remove the pot from oven, remove lid. Remove oven mitts, flour your hands a bit and pick up the dough ball and place in the hot pot. Using mitts, replace the lid and put the pot back into the oven. Bake for 30 min. Then remove the lid and bake 15 more min. Then let cool and enjoy!

Doctor’s Corner Comic Relief “Dad, where did I come from?” asked a 10-year-old boy. The father was shocked that a boy would be asking a question like that at his young age. He was hoping to wait a few more years before he would have to explain the facts of life, but he figured it was better a few years early than a few days too late, so, for the next two hours he explained everything to his son. When he got finished, he asked his son what prompted his question to which he replied, “I was talking to the new kid across the street and he said he came from Manitoba, so I was just wondering…”
