March 2018 NewsletterNewsletter | March 03, 2018 | Nik Manojlovich
Is it just us, or did February zip by in the blink of an eye?
Between Valentine’s Day, Super Bowl Sunday and our jam-packed production and events calendar, we barely had time to enjoy the frigid temperatures and all the snow. NOT! One thing’s for sure – like you, we’re ready for spring!
With the days getting longer, we’re starting to get excited about the warmer weather and the many things we have planned for March and beyond.
On to this, our MARCH 2018 NEWSLETTER!
SMOOTH OPERATOR GIVEAWAY
Make sure to visit our website on Monday, March 12 when we announce the details of our next contest giveaway. We’re partnering with one of our favourite retailers, and one lucky winner will receive a kitchen appliance that we love using… a VITAMIX blender! The contest will run from March 12 to April 12, so remember to check out our website for your chance to become a SMOOTH OPERATOR.
ST. LAWRENCE MARKET
Carol and I will be back at St. Lawrence Market on Saturday, March 24 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. offering refreshing samples of our favourite smoothie recipes. We’ll be in the south kitchen of the Farmer’s Market, located in the white tent out back of the large building (Esplanade and Lower Jarvis). Please drop by and say hi before you head off to purchase the city’s finest ingredients for the upcoming Easter weekend.
COMPLETE EASTER MENU
Speaking of Easter, here are some recipes perfect for this special occasion.
If you’re doing a sit-down meal, we suggest starting with our flavourful CREAM OF ASPARAGUS SOUP. After that, why not make something truly memorable like NANNY’S BAKED HAM or our crowd favourite, ROASTED LEG OF LAMB.
And what better way to end this glorious meal than with our LEMON MERINGUE PIE? Here’s hoping you have a memorable holiday get-together.
We’re always open to your suggestions for upcoming posts. Feel free to DROP US A NOTE with what you’d like to see from us, or forward us a favourites recipe you think our readers will enjoy as much as you do. We’re all about sharing good stuff with our friends!
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Here are links to last month’s most popular posts. No surprise our TUNA CASSEROLE is such a hit – I mean, what’s not to like about classic comfort food? Looking for vegetarian options? Why not try our VEGETARIAN STUFFED PEPPERS or our stellar FENNEL, RADICCHIO, CITRUS AND POMEGRANATE SALAD. If you haven’t tried these recipes yet, now’s your chance.
March will be a month filled with great food and drink offerings including our fresh tasting PASTA PRIMAVERA WITH PEAS AND ASPARAGUS. We’ll share two must-make sweet treats sure to hit the spot: a SERBIAN FRIENDSHIP CAKE and our festive LEMON CURD JELLY ROLL. Lastly, say cheese, because we’ll be sharing some fabulous ideas about how to create a cheese tasting station for your next party, courtesy of our friends at THE CHEESE TABLE. All this, and so much more, coming your way in March.
Here’s an idea. Make a mug of homemade CHAI SPICED LATTE then, settle in and join us for our next Facebook LIVE on Friday, April 13 at noon EDT. We’ll be drawing the winning name for our SMOOTH OPERATOR GIVEAWAY. We’ll also offer an update on more great things happening at Weekend at the Cottage. Please join us!

Come on spring!
