Hockey Night in Canada!

Canadians everywhere and of all ages had one thing in common today:  to support our Canadian Junior Hockey players as they go for Gold at the Junior World Hockey Championship.

I couldn’t wait to get home today and catch the game.

 Canada vs. Russia

It was an exciting game to watch… Canada came into the 3rd period with a 3-0 lead … unfortunately the boys in red and white failed to hold on and the Russians took the win…..boohoo….a major upset.  There’s always next year boys!

Spinach Salad with Maple Balsamic Dressing


Sweet yet Tangy – my boyfriend even approved Smile

To assemble, layer on a bed of baby spinach

Seasoned turkey/chicken breast slices

1/2 diced apple (Ambrosia, Gala) – skin on

handful of walnuts

crumbled goat cheese

Drizzle with Maple Balsamic Reduction

To make reduction

In a saucepan over medium heat, boil 2 cups of Balsamic Vinegar with 1 cup pure maple syrup.  Continue to simmer until reduced by about 1/2 – it will become thicker when cool.  Keeps well in fridge for many weeks, if you can make it last that long.  Try it over strawberries and some non-fat frozen yogurt.  You will not be disappointed!

Have a great night guys
