It’s March, and here, at last, is our first sign of spring. My witch-hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) is in bloom. It’s such a contrast to the snow; so cheerful and bright. Other things to celebrate this month are, Tim Horton’s Roll up the Rim contest, maple syrup, and the vernal equinox. There will be Maple Syrup Festivals running throughout Ontario and Quebec this month as the sap starts rising in the Maple trees. We have a Festival up at a local museum, Bradley House Museum, which is about two miles away. Maple taffy, Maple pancakes, Maple fudge, Maple everything, yum!
Becky and I went to the condo yesterday. Everything is grey with dust. It’s going to take weeks for it all to settle, I’m sure. The bathroom has been painted, and it looks like they are ready to start tiling the floor. After running some errands, we came back to the house and I baked my first ever cheesecake.
I was inspired by a wonderful dinner I had at a friend’s house last weekend. She had baked a cheesecake and covered it with sour cream and blueberries. It was so good, that I decided to have a go myself. I couldn’t believe how easy it was. Throw everything in the blender, pour it into the pie crust and bake. I must say, it was worth it just for the aroma that filled the kitchen. Can’t wait to try it!
Hope your weekend was as good as ours.
