Scallops and Mushroom Polenta

January 31, 2012 by


I first had this dish at Erik Erickson’s restaurant on the pier at Ventura, California. I went home and recreated it as near as I could. It’s a deceptively easy elegant meal to make after a Kings win. You may also use regular polenta, just cook it and place in a cake pan. Let cool and slice […]

Ice hockey sticks are approximately 59.1 inches (150cm) to 78.7 inches (200cm) long. The blade is slightly curved in one direction, either way, to aid in retaining or lifting the puck of the playing surface. The goaltender has a slightly modified stick.

Game Preview – Kings vs Senators

January 23, 2012 by


It was hard finding pictures between the Kings and Senators since the last time we played each other was back in November of 2010! This is our first and last time we will meet this season. No one expected Ottawa to be where they are in the NHL with 60 pts to our 56 pts. […]

The Year We Mowed the Ice

January 18, 2012 by


March, 1959. Chateauguay, Quebec. My husband put up some boards in the back yard and made an ice rink for the kids, ages 4 and 5. He hosed down the whole area and waited for the frost to freeze it over. They loved it and used it every day to skate. Then we had a […]

Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells for the Game!

January 18, 2012 by


When you watch as much hockey as my hubbypat and I do, we cannot eat greasy game food all the time. First off, we would be over 300 pounds each because we watch hockey every night! So the challenge is finding healthy balanced foods that we can cook and not miss any of the action […]
