This is a dish we’ve had before, lamb cooked in a puree of spinach, tomatoes, and ginger. Very tasty!
And the best thing about this dish, acutally one of the best things about the Silk Route, is that each dish can be spiced specifically to your liking. So, if you prefer a little spice or maybe not so much spice, just tell your server and you’ll receive your order to your taste!
Book your table today at the Silk Route, 613-962-4531!
While the morning crew were jammin’ in Jamaica, myself and John Spitters were filling in. You may recall, in fact I know you do, that John took on the duties of reporting the Weird & Wacky news. To wrap up the week he had a golf poem, to remind us all that Spring is right around the corner.
I know you remember because I’ve been bombarded with requests for this peom. Thanks to John for getting it to us… enjoy!
Today was Silk Route Day! Evey Wednesday the Silk Route in downtown Belleville brings over a fabulous item off their menu.
This week it was one of their signature dishes, the Garlic Chicken… which doesn’t taste at all like garlic. It has more of a sweet taste to it… in fact it looks like sweet and sour chicken balls served with rice. What it really is, is chicken patted with flour and sauteed in fresh garlic, coriander, and black pepper. A perfect dish for lunch!!!
Give the Silk Route a try, visit them in the Clarion Inn and Suites in downtown Belleville!
This Sunday is International Women’s Day!!!
This years theme is celebrating those who, paid or unpaid, ‘care’ for those around them… “Sharing The Caring, For the Future”.
Elise Hineman, from the Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte and District, stopped in this afternoon to talk about celebrations going on right in our own back yard.
Everyone is invited to join in Sunday (March 8th) at the Bridge Street United Church beginning at 2:30 for activities, refreshments, and guest speaker Mimi Kashira.
Mimi will be sharing her incredible story of, after earning her law degree, fled the Congo with her two children in 1999 when her husband was killed during the Rwandan genocide. She is now a Canadian citizen, working on behalf of sexually abused Congolese women victims of rebel soldiers.
There is no cost for this event, though offerings are being accepted.
A recent poll of Canadian women from ten Canadian cities asked them about their lives and how satisifed they were.
The results… for overall satisfaction, the women in Toronto felt the best followed by Vancouver
and Ottawa. At the low end were Hamilton, Calgary and last… Winnipeg.
