SNAKSHOT

"Chicken puzzle" ... What came first, the chicken or the egg? A good question and one that is readily conjured by the image shown above.

But when I took this photograph that wasn't exactly what I had on my mind. I was getting ready to open a bottle of wine to have with dinner. Roasted organic chicken, locally raised and grain fed, is a cut above your everyday hen. My friend Eric gets his whole fresh chickens from a local butcher set up at the Jean-Talon Market. And then he prepares his birds using a simple yet elegant Jacques Pépin recipe. The results easily demand one of your better Rhône reds or a good Pinot Noir.

Puzzle solved.

Thanks Joe,

I just got my camera back from the shop (Future Shop) after a lengthy repair so I am very encouraged by your comment to pick up where I left off.

As luck would have it tonight is roast chicken night -- the first bird of 2007! I'm bringing along Pastiche and giving it a try -- Grenache and Pinot apparentally, among others.

Thanks a lot for writing.

Never had the Pastiche - let me know how it goes.

The Internet has brought the world of shopping to the fingertips of just about everyone. Long gone are the days of driving from shop to shop, wasting precious time and petrol just to find that one particular item you've been searching for in the size you need. In this case, we're referring to shoes.

Since ages, chocolate is loved by all people due to its special taste. Many experts have noted that chocolates are unhealthy and continuous eating often results in tooth decay. Some medical experts have stated that chocolates contain sugar substances and thus add calories to the body and increase the sugar levels in the blood. But, it has been recently found that chocolates are good for our health as they have a lot of advantages. Chocolates contain antioxidants. Therefore they kill the free radicals and obstruct the oxidization of lipids into our body. The antioxidants are a concentrated form of flavonoids.
