…”Blast of winter set to hit BC”…”Struggle to teach students ’21st century skills’ when classroom technology isn’t up to speed”…”

Well, it is the 10th of November so I guess it’s not surprising that weather warnings to fetch out the toques, scarves and gloves shouldn’t be surprising!

Our prolonged period of mild weather is “finito” today with a blast of cold from a polar vortex that will send freezing temperatures southbound.

Bundle up, stay warm and even Vancouver can expect low temperatures below freezing for the next few days, while day time highs will hover below 5C.

Brrrr….

Apparently teachers face many challenges trying to teach kids these days the arts of creativity, collaboration, critical-thinking and communication in our ‘connected world’ with school budget constraints limiting many students to their own (if they’re so lucky) devices…

Cheers to teachers, resources & more available technology!…

Of late, we need no reminders that Remembrance Day is “a serious time when we really have the chance to consider what our freedom means–and to be grateful to the people who protect our country both past and present. Although food has never been a large part of the day, cooking meals associated with the times, the places or the people you are remembering makes a thoughtful tribute.”

Cheers to remembering shepherd’s pie!!!…

Aaaah yes, comfort foods!…

Vegetables are interesting but lack a sense of purpose when unaccompanied by a good cut of meat. ~Fran Lebowitz

This is every cook’s opinion –
no savory dish without an onion,
but lest your kissing should be spoiled
your onions must be fully boiled.
~Jonathan Swift

There is nothing better on a cold wintry day than a properly made pot pie. ~Craig Claiborne

Cheers to a fine November Monday that has you sittin’ comfortable!
