It appears that in the Texas hospital where the two nurses caught Ebola had given no training to anyone to deal with this and from pictures it turns out that the nurses necks were uncovered!! I hope hospitals will be given training ASAP because you just never know who is going to land on your doorstep.
Passing our regular gas bar on the way to bowling we saw the price was $1.12 per litre. That’s the lowest we’ve seen in a very long time. However, in the headlines they are saying falling gas prices are hurting Alberta. Much of their gas is sold to the States anyway, although I heard a report the other day that the States were now producing as much gas as the middle east.
Having a Hallowe’en party? How about this for your table? By the way, I am going to be sharing this on my local radio station next Tuesday.
Black Widow Goat Cheese Log
- SERVINGS: 12 servings
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 very large shallots, thinly sliced (2 cups)
- 10 ounces fresh goat cheese, softened
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 6 ounces Greek feta cheese, at room temperature
- Black sesame seeds, for garnish
- 1 piquillo pepper, for garnish
- 6-inch painted twigs, for spider legs
- Crackers, flat breads and bread sticks
- In a medium skillet, melt the butter. Add the shallots and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes. Scrape the shallots into a food processor and let cool. Add the goat cheese, cream cheese and feta and puree until smooth. Scrape the cheese into a bowl and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.
- Shape one third of the cheese mixture into a ball and roll in black sesame seeds to coat; shape the remaining two-thirds into a larger ball and coat with black sesame seeds. On a serving board, press the balls together to form the head and body of a spider. Cut the piquillo pepper into 2 small triangles and place them on the body in an hourglass shape. Serve with crackers, flat breads or bread sticks.
Have a great day’'
