This week on SASTV: Ratatouille! (aka how to deal with all the zucchini & eggplant people keep giving you)

August 29, 2020

When one of our team members handed Sue-Ann a sack filled with eggplant, zucchini and tomatoes from his garden, she knew that Ratatouille was in her future.      This classic Provencal vegetable stew is the perfect distillation of late summer flavours and can be served so many ways.

Ingredients 1 1/2 pounds venison 1/2 pound bacon ends or regular bacon, chopped roughly Salt (smoked salt if you have it) Freshly ground black pepper...

One of life's toughest days. 

The dreaded day .... Brix is cuddling with Dad now ... and I assume Dad is already continuing to train Brix how to sit up on his hind legs which used to be their morning ritual.

Brix quickly succumbed to a large tumour on his scapula...
