  1. Igor brand gorgonzola is being recalled in Ontario and Quebec due to possible listeria contamination. https://recalls-rappels.canada.ca/en/alert-recall/igor-brand-gorgonzola-mild-ripened-blue-veined-cheese-recalled-due-listeria?utm_source=gc-notify&utm_medium=email&utm_content=en&utm_campaign=hc-sc-rsa-22-23&
  2. They're pretty much always to be found at Sobeys and Superstore, but often they're in the frozen section. I buy them occasionally when I think of it.
  3. I spend a lot of my working day digging information out of badly-constructed websites. If you scroll to the very bottom of the home page you'll see a link for the site map. Site maps are your friend. There's also a "Contact Us" link there, but I passed over that in silence when I posted the above. Another useful play, especially when there's no site map, is to Google the thing you're looking for, and then specify the site in question. So in this case it might be contact us site:lepicerie.com or contact information site:lepicerie.com Instead of specifying "site" you can use "inurl" the same way - ie contact us inurl:lepicerie.com - but I usually go with "site" just because it's one fewer character to type and it keeps you among the most-used letters on the keyboard. When you do this stuff all day, those little details add up.

  5. We all have these days, right? ...right?

    Duck: The Topic

    I had genuinely expected that to be the culmination of the story.

    Duck: The Topic

    Huh. My local No Frills (the discount arm of Loblaw's, our largest grocery chain) has ducks for $3CDN/lb, up from $2/lb back in the spring. They're costlier at the main supermarkets, mind you.
  8. My GF is keen to do this now that we're on an acreage. May or may not happen, of course, but I'll keep an eye on this thread.
  9. Figured it out in less than a week. Not that it isn't obvious...
  10. "The Glue That Holds This Place Together" has a nice ring to it, but doesn't reduce well to a keyword search.
  11. Where the "Food Funnies" and "Companions" threads overlap...
  12. More or less my reaction, as well. Oddly, my earworm when I woke up this morning was the Beatles' "Piggies" (I can't imagine what I might have been dreaming about), specifically the line about them using forks and knives to eat their bacon. Finding this on my timeline a few minutes afterwards seemed utterly apropos.

    Duck egg ideas...

    ... an eggsistential dilemma...
  14. Not so much, no. I like being on the coast. Truthfully it was not the winters there that I minded, it was the summers. Not a fan of hot-and-dry (not a fan of hot, period, but getting desiccated as a side benefit just seemed a bit much).
  15. A few of ours have will have their date with destiny in another week or so, and that'll be my reward for doing the skinning and cleaning.
  16. Clearly you haven't watched Rowan Atkinson as Blackadder (he refers to his sidekick, Baldric, as his dogsbody). Definition is here: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/dogsbody Good luck to you on your enterprise. You're just about smack between my ex's maternal family (Fort St. John) and paternal family (Edmonton).
  17. My GF's mom used to slow-roast hers overnight, stuffed, at a very low temperature (250F, I think?) and then leave it on the counter from mid-morning until the big meal in mid-late afternoon. Then it would sit out all evening for random passers-by to nibble at. My poor sweetie thought she was cursed, because she would invariably be sick over the holidays. Then a few years back she found herself in a new relationship with a former chef/food safety trainer, and it hasn't happened since. Go figure.
