There’s nothing like a tasty, home-cooked meal over the holidays.
And to make sure it’s also quick and easy, the Queenston Residents’ Association is accepting pre-orders for its annual sale of tourtieres, made from scratch by members.
The tourtieres are ready to be picked up at the Christmas bake and decor sale, held at the Queenston Library, Saturday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
There will be coffee and muffins ready to enjoy, Christmas decorations, and lots of baked goods at the event.
About 20 QRA volunteers have made the pastry, prepared and cooked the meat, and this weekend, filled 168 pie crusts.
About half are already spoken for, and they will sell out before the day of the Christmas sale, says organizer Marilyn Armstrong.
Although the group has traditionally made and sold chicken casseroles, the dwindling number of volunteers was a deciding factor in eliminating them this year.
Tourtieres are $20 each. Orders can be emailed to Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 905-262-0268.
