Creamy Egg Topped Linguine

Creamy Egg-Topped LinguineServes 4
-¼ pound pancetta, cut into ½-inch cubes
-1 medium leek, cleaned, trimmed, halved, and cut crosswise into ½-inch slices
-½ cup heavy cream
-½ cup grated Parmesan
-½ pound linguine
-salt and freshly ground pepper
-4 large eggs
Place pancetta in a skillet and sauté over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring often, until fat is rendered and pancetta is crisp, about 2-3 minutes. Set pancetta onto a paper towel lined plate. Discard fat from pan, reserving 2 tablespoons for cooking.
Add 1 tablespoon fat and leeks to pan; cook until leeks begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add pancetta, cream, and cheese to pan. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions. Drain pasta and add ¾ cup of the pasta cooking liquid to the sauce. Bring to a simmer, stirring, until sauce is thickened and coats the back of a spoon, about 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the pasta to the cream sauce and stir to coat.
Heat a skillet with reserved fat over medium heat. Fry an egg for each plate of pasta.

It is too hot to cook so I get recipes and save them for Autumn.

ReInstate Bryce Casavant

 Saved Baby bears, Lost his job

Conservation Officer Bryce Casavant has been suspended without pay pending a performance investigation after he refused to put down two bear cubs this weekend.
These baby bears, a brother and sister, were orphaned after their mother had to be destroyed after she had, at least twice, broken into a freezer of salmon and deer meat inside a mobile home on Hardy Bay Road, "through no fault of the owner." “Although it is unlikely the mother was in town due to the fire, it is hard to know,” said Casavant.
On July 5, Casavant and members of the Port Hardy Fire Department literally pulled out all stops to rescue the babies who had come back to the property and were up a tree calling for their mother.
“They (firefighters) had their high-angle rescue specialist scale the tree and rappel down on top of the bears to lower them to me. I then tranquilized them by hand,” said Casavant.
The babies were estimated to be about eight weeks and weigh 20 to 25 pounds, are healthy and still nursing.
