There is nothing better than this great lazy lunch or hearty dinner. The hearty earthiness of the vegetables, slow-cooked to perfection with the mouth-watering beef and herbs, makes for a good, all-round winter meal.

The first time I experienced this meal, the snow was falling outside, the wind was howling, yet inside I was devouring the food that was presented. I was warm and comfy cozy.

Coming from across the pond, Turkey is mostly eaten in and or around the Christmas time. Why? It’s a great meal. This year I have had deep fried turkey on several occasions and OMG it’s awesome every time. A bird that is large enough to feed a family for several meals is definitely something not to be sneezed at.

Domestic abuse is not a “women’s issue.”

Deck the Halls… Joy to the World… Silent Night… As we rush around doing our shopping and getting ready for Christmas, we hear Christmas carols and dream of family get-togethers, chestnuts roasting in an open fire, shortbread cookies and all the wonderful sights and smells of Christmas. But do we set ourselves up for failure? Do we have unreasonable expectations of providing an idyllic experience over the holidays?

Recently, as part of Canada150 celebrations, Canada played host to the Invictus Games in Toronto. The Invictus Games provided an opportunity for us to celebrate our veterans and also our serving members from Canada and other nations for their courage and their determination not to be defined by their injuries. As I watched the opening ceremonies, some of the events and the closing ceremonies, I was struck by the strong emotions displayed both by spectators and participants in this event. I was also moved by the efforts of Prince Harry, who initiated this event as a way for injured veterans to demonstrate how they still have what it takes to compete at this level. First established by Prince Harry in 2014, the Invictus Games in Toronto included 550 ill and injured serving members and veterans and 1,100 family and friend spectators from 17 participating nations.
