A Foodies Dream

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Hello friends, today I am sharing with you Christopher Lake’s very own, the deliriously delicious Yellow Fender Coffee House and Eatery!

This wonderful bistro is a little gem and if you are coming to this neck of the woods, I highly recommend you stop here for some tasty nourishment.

It is owned and operated by a mother Connie Freedy, who is also a Red Seal chef, and her daughter Heidi O’ Brodovich. Together they lovingly prepare fresh food made from local and Saskatchewan ingredients. The restaurant it’s self is warm and inviting, with the smell of fresh baked artisan bread and gourmet coffee brewing, it’s instantly relaxing. Their creations are extensive from hearty soups, to fruit smoothies, to lentil walnut burgers and don’t worry meat lovers they also have local bison and their house burgers. You always feel good after eating there as they use the best quality ingredients.

They also specialize in small event catering, so if you are planning an upcoming event, give them a shout at 982-4240 and let them work with you to develop the perfect menu!

Green Weddings and Celebrations

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Hello…I hope your day is moving along splendidly.¬† I just came across this great website called Give Tree Gifts, which I am so pleased to share with you. This Saskatchewan business offers a whole range of green gift ideas, but what strikes a cord with me is the tree seedling gifts. There are so many special occasions that would benefit from such a thoughtful gift, from party favors to Earth-day celebrations. The one I fancy, is the use of tree seedlings as wedding favors for couples wanting a more eco-friendly day…I love it! Such a beautiful way to start their lives together. Their wedding favors don’t just end up in the garbage but they provide benefit to the earth and all the people who encounter it for years to come.

” As you grow and build your lives together, so the tree grows. Each tree ring represents another year of growth and strength, not unlike your wedding rings. They symbolize love and eternity and are an outward sign of an inward and spiritual bond.”

Couples are also able to have a carbon neutral wedding done in partnership with The Carbon Farmer. So neat I wish I’d heard of this when I got married!
