DELICIOUS DISH RECIPE

6-INGREDIENT

SPAGHETTI & MEATBALLS SERVING SIZE: Makes 12 NOTE: If I don’t have buttermilk, I mix the milk and lemon juice and let stand for 5 minutes, and voila... buttermilk!

Adding pesto to the turkey adds a quick and easy punch of flavour. You can use regular pesto or I use store bought no-cheese, no-nut pesto from my favourite local pasta shop. Try to get the “fresh” pesto from the refrigerated section rather than the pesto in the jar on the shelf, it is much better! This dinner comes together in well under 1-hour. Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS F O R THE T U R K E Y B A L L S

S T EP 01

• • • • •

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, pesto, salt and pepper. Add the turkey and mix well. Prepare a parchment-lined tray. Roll the mixture into 1" balls. You should have about 25-30 balls.

1 lb ground turkey* 2/3 cup bread crumbs 1/2 cup store bought pesto or homemade 1 tsp kosher salt Plenty of freshly ground pepper

• 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil F O R THE SA U CE

• 2 large cloves garlic, minced • 1 (28 ounce) can of San Marzano tomatoes, crushed with your hands • 1 tsp kosher salt • Plenty of freshly ground pepper • 1/2 tsp sugar • • • •

12 oz spaghetti noodles** 6 basil leaves, shredded, optional Grated parmesan reggiano, optional Red chili flakes, optional

* Don’t use white meat turkey. Use the regular ground turkey. ** 12oz or 340gm is 3/4 of a bag of pasta. I don’t use the whole bag because the ratio of meatballs to pasta is perfect and 12oz serves 4 perfectly!

DIRECTIONS

S T EP 02

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil. Brown the meatballs all over for about 8-10 minutes, transfer to a clean surface (I use a plate). S T EP 03

Add the garlic to the same pan, cook for 30 seconds, add the tomatoes, crush the larger pieces, add the salt, pepper and sugar and let bubble over medium high heat for 5-8 minutes. Add the turkey balls back into the pan, cover, turn heat to low and cook for another 5-10 minutes. S T EP 04

In the meantime, bring a large pot of water to boil, add 1tbsp salt, and boil the noodles according to package direction, keeping them al-dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water and then drain the noodles, put the pasta back into the pasta pot and add the sauce to the pasta. Add the pasta water a small amount at a time if needed to finish cooking the pasta or to thin the sauce (you may not need it).

EASTER FAIR

Colourful Easter Eggs were hidden throughout the shops in Port Credit’s East Village on Saturday, April 15th. It was a soggy start to the Fair, but by early afternoon, the sun came out along with all the children and their families. The children filled their baskets with eggs and traded them in for a goody bag. There were many children’s activities and inflatable rides as well as face painting and food trucks and of course an appearance by the Easter Bunny. 02

PROFILE

WITH SANDRA PITTS WHO ARE YOU? NAME: Sandra Pitts BIRTHPLACE: Toronto NICKNAME: Sandy

WHAT BRINGS YOU THE GREATEST JOY OR SATISFACTION? The greatest joy in life has and always will be my four children: Justin, Brandon, and twins Mallory and Taylor.

RESIDE: Streetsville CAREER: Event Planner bookstore in Streetsville - Once Upon A Time

IF YOU COULD POSSESS ONE SUPER-HUMAN POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

FAMILY PETS: My best friend and dog - Marley

I wish I could be in several places at once.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING RIGHT NOW?

WHAT DOES THE WORD COMMUNITY MEAN TO YOU?

I am currently the coordinator of one of Ontario’s Top 100 Festivals. The Streetsville Founders’ Bread and Honey Festival is Ontario’s longest and largest running festival in all of Ontario, only second to the CNE. This year we are proud to be celebrating its 45th year in June, along with Canada’s 150th.

When I think of community, I think of The Streetsville Founders’ Bread and Honey Festival. It’s where everyone can come together for a weekend and celebrate our history, cultural and community spirit, all while giving back to the community.

HIGHLIGHT YOUR CAREER (STANDOUTS/HURDLES) I was so proud and honoured to receive the Queen Elizabeth Jubilee Award and The Timothy Street Award for all of my community involvement. The Mississauga Readers’ Choice Award for “Best Book Store. In the year 2000, “Once Upon a Time” actually took first place over Chapters. We would have story time every week for the children. Loved that store! I am a proud member of the Streetsville Legion and 100 Mississisauga Women Who Care. A few accomplishments outside of my family are working on the Santa Claus Parade for over 10 years. There was nothing better than watching the smiles on the children’s faces as Santa came through on his sleigh. The Streetsville Canada Day, one of our largest events, which I just recently retired after 16 years. Probably the one event I am most proud of was our Streetsville 150th celebration, which brought thousands of people together to celebrate our Bicentennial year. This year I am sure that our 45th Bread and Honey Anniversary, along with us celebrating Canada’s 150th will be as great as our Streetsville Anniversary. The Redevelopment of VJCC and the Streetsville Arena was a must for me to help out since my 4 children, coached by their father, all played hockey at this arena over the years. The reenactment of the War of 1812, Spookatcular, Ceildhi, Tim Hortons Camp, Caring and Sharing, and lastly the Eden Food Bank Ladies night, where over 150 ladies including the Mayor came together in Streetsville to raise funds for the food bank.

WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU AND WHY? My husband Reg inspires me everyday as he is the most unselfish and hardworking person I know. Reg was a Homicide Detective with the Metro Toronto Police for 33 years. In his 32nd year, he was asked and went over to Kandahar, Afghanistan to help support the troops along with training the Afghanistan Police. He has now retired and joined the United Nations and continues to go to Afghanistan and other countries to help fight our crime and drug issues.

WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH? The way my children perceive me!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME AND WHY?

Twas the Bite Before Xmas with Mayor Bonnie Crombie, Dan & Sandy.

WHAT IS ONE THING THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE WOULD KNOW ABOUT YOU? Over the years at many of the events, it was really me who was Clifford the Big Red Dog, Timothy Street, our Bread and Honey Mascot and the Witch at Spooktacular. Should I be embarrassed to say that I have even been Barney, the pink dinosaur? Somebody had to wear the costume!

My kids would say that I can’t have a favourite movie. If I ever finally sit down to watch something, I usually fall asleep. I did actually manage to sit through Forrest Gump a few times and I still feel that I can’t help admire how his character accomplished so much in life and overcame so many obstacles. My favourite part was when he started to run and just kept going for years!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE VACATION SPOT? I have had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places, however nothing compares to my cottage in Prince Edward Island. Our beach is a piece of heaven!

WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN?

IF THE WHOLE COMMUNITY WERE LISTENING, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THEM?

Everything happens for a reason.

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

Dear The Wine Ladies,

ASK

My husband and I were given a bottle of Sauternes, as a housewarming gift, which we were told, would remind us of our icewines. Apparently it is quite a special and pricey wine. We don’t particularly favor sweet wines, but my mother-in-law is mad for them. So I thought it might be a great treat for Mother’s Day. I’m just wondering if they’re made the same way as icewine? - Kristy

THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Kristy,

Indeed, a great treat, Sauternes is the “king” of all sweet wines! Sauternes can only come from France and be produced in the Grave district south of Bordeaux. Icewines are not restricted as to where they can be made although Canada is widely considered the authority on this luscious wine - the “Nectar of the Gods” as it is commonly referred to. Both are sweet, complex and delectable! Both Sauternes and our icewines must adhere to a strict set of regulations as to how they are made, although the rules and methodology of production for the two are entirely different.

What defines Sauternes is “noble rot”. The uniqueness of Sauternes is due to the mesoclimate it enjoys which encourages a very special fungus called botrytis cinerea, otherwise known as “noble rot” to attack the grapes. It is this fungus that causes the grapes to shrivel and rot, and allows a wonderful concentration of tartaric acid and sugar to develop in the grapes resulting in a wine of great complexity. Layer upon layer of rich flavours, honey, mango, flowers, brioche and so on. Ever lasting and age worthy beyond decades, this is Sauternes.

22

• COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA

There is one similarity between our ice wines and Sauternes, outside of being dessert wines, they are both very expensive to produce, and certain conditions must be met or occur before the wines can be made. For our ice wines one of the regulations is that the grapes cannot be picked until the temperature reaches a minimum of -8� Celsius. For Sauternes, it is not about the temperature but rather about this unique fungus that must infect the grapes. Both situations are risky. In Canada, the birds and deer feast on the grapes while winemakers patiently await the freeze, limiting the yield. In Sauternes, the viticulturists must await the infection of noble rot, and occasionally it just doesn’t happen, or it can come very late limiting the yield even more. So patience is a virtue in Sauternes, as it is in Canada! thewineladies.com

05

In 2009, in partnership with our Music Therapist and Mentor College Music Program, an intergenerational program was formed called Memories to Music. This new one-of-a-kind initiative involved senior level high school music students and those living within our community who are within the early stages of dementia. The program takes place in the second semester of school and includes an education session on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Students are paired with a member from an Alzheimer Society Peel Day Program, and will meet for several sessions to learn about their senior partner’s life story through a series of interviews and activities facilitated by our Music Therapist. The students are then given a few weeks to compose an original piece of music that represents their senior partner and which encapsulates their life memories shared through their meetings together. In the early spring a concert is held where the students are able to perform the songs they have written to their senior partner, their family and friends, and to the Mississauga community. It is a celebration of life, love, community and hard work. The songs recorded by the students and presented to their senior partners as a gift and lasting legacy. Not only does this program educate students in the community about Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias, but it also allows for the cultivating of meaningful relationships between the two generations. Families and friends have been amazed to see the connection formed between the students and their senior partners, and the stories and memoires that were recalled and shared during their meeting times. Memories to Music has proven that music is a universal language that has been found to touch the deepest parts of our memories, unlock different emotions, and connect us to each other through the power rhythm and song.

BOOK REVIEW

SPEECHLESS: INSPIRED BY LIFE

S

BY PETA-GAYE NASH

the pressure to be the best and succeed at everything results in behaviour that appears mean, masking hurt and insecurity. Mook-Sang came to Canada from Guyana in the early seventies when she was fourteen. Experiencing culture shock and being on the outside helped her to develop characters that are three dimensional and who see the world in different ways. She never thought of herself as a writer but when she read bedtime stories to her sons, she fell in love with reading all over again. Children’s books grab her and she laughs as she says she’s stuck at age twelve, “that age where you are discovering yourself but there’s still so much to figure out and learn who people are and why they do what they do.”

peechless, Jennifer Mook-Sang’s debut novel for young adults aged 9-12, is one of those witty, can’t-put-down books of juvenile fiction that resonates with anyone who’s ever been to school. Although it’s for young adults, I enjoyed Speechless as much as any good work of fiction and even tested it on my reluctant eight year old reader. Speechless passed with flying colours. It’s not surprising then, that Speechless was shortlisted for several awards including the CBC Best Books of the Year 2015 and Best Books for Kids and Teens, Canadian Children’s Book Centre 2016 to name two of the many. Who can resist the journey of Joe Alton Miles, known as Jelly, when he decides to enter a speech competition to win the coveted prize of a tablet and all its accessories? It’s not that Jelly is good at public speaking. He’s terrified of being on stage but Jennifer Mook-Sang is in the enviable position of being a full time he wants that tablet more than anything. Also standing in his way is writer. Once a stay-at-home-mom of two boys who are no longer at the smart, popular Victoria who has won all previous speech prizes home, her job is to sit and write. Writing groups are a great source and thinks she deserves to win. When Jelly keeps his speech topic a of inspiration, especially those that critique and spur her on. She has secret (he has no idea what to talk about), Victoria gets competitive an illustrated children’s book coming out in the fall and is working in a mean, bullying kind of way. Jelly grows over time as he learns on another character from Speechless who gets her own book. It’s Community 1 17-04-22 11:23character: PM Page 1 not Victoria, but that may one day be a possibility. what he Captured is capablead-May2017_Layout of and we get a glimpse into Victoria’s

Students and staff are busy with their academic endeavours as well as extra-curricular activities. Teachers, as always, are supporting students to ensure they are successful in their course work. That’s one of the amazing characteristics of Gradyon... it’s caring environment.

SPOR TS The school’s spring sports are up and running and have started competitions. The soccer, badminton, archery, baseball, ball hockey and track/field teams are exhibiting determination and excellence at practices, games and meets. Students and staff are excited about the season. GO HAWKS GO!

R OBOTI C S Through the hard work and determination of the Robotics students, mentors and teaching staff, the team (once again) qualified for The World First Robotics Competition in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The team demonstrated their knowledge and understanding, of robotics, at the event. The school community is very proud of the team’s accomplishments this year.

THEATR E The first week in May saw Theatre Graydon put on another outstanding musical. This year’s production of Aladdin was flawless. The countless hours and effort put in by students and staff were beyond belief. They are to be commended on a job well done. For many of the performers, this will be their last year working on productions at Graydon. They have either decided to move onto another school (due to its closure in June, 2018) or are graduating. We wish all those, choosing other pathways, the best in their theatrical pursuits.

GR AYD O N’S 6 0 TH RE U N I O N A very special celebration is happening this month... Graydon’s 60th Reunion.

SECONDARY SCHOOL DAY OF PIN K To stand up to bullying and recognize the importance of equality and acceptance at school, many of the PCSS clubs found interactive ways to promote a better school life. Wellness Warriors put up a large poster encouraging students to write positive messages, or just sign their name, pledging their support to the anti-bullying movement. The Equity and Inclusivity club made a display in the front hall of the school, as well as put up posters throughout the school. On April 10th, the official day of pink, PCSS students showed their support by wearing pink.

STEAM WEEK This month our Sci-Tech council arranged for a series of presentations to be shown over the course of one week. Each presentation focused on a different potential work field. Science and technology, business, and arts. A bat specialist, and you tube known drummer, were two of the engaging and informative presenters.

TH E IN SIDE R ID E Students and teachers alike had the incredible opportunity to take part in The Inside Ride, a fundraising event devoted to raising money to support those affected by cancer. Teams of six dressed up and rode a stationary bike for ten minutes each. PCSS was able to raise over $12,000! Thank you to everybody who made a donation.


MUS IC The senior jazz combo performed at Starbucks sharing their talent with Port Credit locals. Coffee and music - great combo. A huge congratulations to our Concert, Philharmonic, and Chamber Strings ensembles who performed so beautifully this morning/ afternoon at the Ontario Strings Association Festival at York University. They impressed the adjudicators as well as the festival organizers and we couldn’t have been more proud! Another huge congratulations to our Chamber Strings ensemble who received two Platinum 1st-Place Awards at the Kiwanis Music Festival this morning with marks of 93 and 94. Emily and Angela Bosenius performed the Vivaldi Concerto for Two Violins in A Minor in one category, supported by our wonderful ensemble, and the ensemble performed the First Movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1; Dvorak’s Finale from Sonatina Opus 100; and, Marche Slav by Tchaikovsky. The Chamber Strings ensemble received an invitation to perform next month at The Nationals, as part of MusicFest Canada, as a result of their performance. We couldn’t afford to go last year due to distance, but are excited to be participating this year as it’s a bit closer to home! Peel Skills We took the top two places in Graphic Design at the Peel Technological Skills Competition yesterday! Maya Lota won the silver medal and Pernia Jamshed the gold. Pernia (our yearbook editor) now goes on to the Ontario finals in May. Mr. Mason’s student Katrina Kidd also took gold, in Photography, and will also go to the Ontario finals. Mr Tempelmann’ student Mohammad Abdul-Latif took bronze in Mechanical CAD.

SPOR TS Spring sports have officially begun! Our Varsity Boys Lacrosse team had their first tournament and they all played with great sportsmanship and determination. The Senior Boys Badminton team won 3 gold medals at their tournament. Varsity Girls Soccer and Rugby teams both began their season with a win. Congratulations girls! Senior Badminton, great news that James and Katy won first place in mixed doubles and now play at the ROPSSAA Championships. It turns out our #1 Girls Doubles team also made it to the Championships on April 19, with a second place finish.

CLARKSON

and Clarkson is back, more determined than ever! From hair cutting to evening pie-ing teachers (some will even be put in a dunk tank), there are many crazy activities planned for this exciting charity event. This year many personal goals have been set, especially for one high school student. ABDUR-RAZAKH MOHAMED, a grade 12 student at Clarkson Secondary School, set off on an exciting journey, as he and his friends are hoping to raise thousands of dollars for Camp Oochigeas by running for the Sporting life 10k fundraiser. “I’m running this marathon because I want more kids to be able to experience the life changing experience that Ooch has given me,” Abdur explains. “Not only do we raise money for the kids, but we also train hard and run in their honour.” These past couple of years have been a huge success for the charity week event as more than $40,000 is raised in a school of just over 800 students. “It is my hope that this fundraiser contributes greatly to Clarkson’s charity week known as Cancer Drive,” says Abdur. “More than anything, this shows our partnership and dedication for Ooch.” The Clarkson community is thrilled to see staff, students and community members once again partner up for this cause. After all, they do it for the kids!

SECONDARY SCHOOL by: Vyjayanthi Janakiraman It is that time of year again, where the sun is out, and wallets are too. Cancer Drive 2017 has just officially kicked off for this year
