Flavourful Saskatoon, April 27, 2015


Saskatoon Farmers’ Market, May 2 
The Saskatoon Farmers’ Market heads back outdoors on Saturday, May 2.

Top of the Hops, May 21-23
Top of the Hops is back at Prairieland Park, May 21-23.

Ouzopalooza, May 22 
Transport yourself to a Greek taverna at the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation’s fundraising dinner, Ouzopalooza, on May 22.

Vegan Pho
The Odd Couple Restaurant is now serving Vegan Vietnamese Rice Noodle Soup (a.k.a. Vegan pho). I really appreciate all the vegetarian/vegan items on their menu.

Saskatoon Seed Library
A Saskatoon Seed Library – what an awesome idea! Why not join and start growing and saving seeds to ensure greater local food security?

Tomatoes and Milkweed 
Monarch butterflies can’t survive without milkweed. Blazing Star Wildflower Seed Company will be setting up at the Street Stall Saturday Market adjacent to the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market on May 2 with heirloom tomatoes and peppers as well as wildflowers. They hope to have Dwarf Milkweed for sale in June.


Good Meals 
I had an excellent pecan burger and soup at The Woods Alehouse a couple of weeks ago. The servings are very generous and the burger was loaded with caramelized onions, spinach and avocado.

I can also highly recommend the vegetarian sandwich and soup at Calories on Broadway. The house hummus is organic and there was lots of fresh, crunchy lettuce, red pepper and cucumber. Their wild rice bread is a long-time favourite of mine.

Nosh Eatery & Tap is a great place for Sunday brunch from 10:30 to 2 every week.


Picnic in Provence 
Picnic in Provence by Elizabeth Bard is a delightful read from start to finish. Sunshine, fresh figs and strawberries, markets and an ice cream store – delicious!

Moving into the Fast Lane 
Wanderlust and Words will be taking a short sabbatical as I’m getting a bright-new, shiny-new hip (matching pair!) on April 28. #Can’tCatchMeNow #FullSpeedAhead
