His mom is one of the greatest cooks around and has always been like a second mom to me. I spent so many days and evenings next door drinking tea, learning about life, crying over boys, wishing I had less zits and more boobs. It is funny how a recipe can make you think of someone. Every time I make fatiahs I think of just how much time I spent next door. The late night trips across the lawn with a bowl of cereal looking for milk. The whole family means the world to me and sometimes life gets in the way and months pass between phone calls and visits but they are the kind of friends that are more like family and all you need to do is pick up the phone or drop in for tea and it is like no time has passed at all.
Here is the recipe for fatiahs. It is nothing like the original but I try and my kids love to help. They are so great in lunches or for weekend hockey trips, in the microwave, with ketchup, yummy.
You need a package of frozen bread dough from the CO-OP say " hi" to Stitchy!
Cut the dough into twelve equal pieces.
Roll the dough on a floured countertop . The kids love this. Place the meat mixture into the center of the dough. Just a tablespoon or so. Pinch the circle so part of the triangle comes together. You are aiming for an acute triangle ( just joking) Make it a cute triangle.

We were sitting around the kitchen table eating supper when Pat casually mentioned that his team the Penguins were going to be playing at the Bronco game. Kelsey paused and beamed with a smile but waited for us to say we were just joking. When he realized we were serious he shouted out, " We are so going to kick their butts!" I explained to him that they were not actually playing the Bronco team but another team of five year olds between the first and second periods.
What is the best thing to do after a great game of hockey?? Come home and cuddle. These two were so cute having a sleepover after the big game. This picture is going to come out some day in a wedding slideshow I can just feel it.
In the middle of all of the excitement at the Bronco game I was also going back and forth to the curling rink to watch the Scotties Tournament of Hearts. I was proudly telling everyone that the McIvor girls were my neighbors in Davidson. The two rinks had to curl eachother in the semi-finals for a place in the final game. Rene's rink ended up placing second which made us all so proud! Her sisters and mom and Dad were there to cheer her on. They had all their little ones at the rink all week which made me feel so much better that I am not the only that brings my kids along with me. They were all so cute and well behaved.
