I wanted to let you know that I have started a new blog called Sweet Nothings.
On this site I am going to post stories from my life, pictures from projects I am working on, things I like, and who knows what else.
I just put up my first post, where I talk about why I wanted to create a personal blog, and I review Sally Hansen Dry & Go Drops. I hope you’ll check it out.
And don’t worry, Prairie Sweet isn’t going anywhere! In fact, I will be updating this site soon to let you know about two upcoming events in Winnipeg where I will be selling shortbread. Stay tuned!
Prairie Sweet is celebrating its first Christmas with an end of year sale!
For the month of December, the price for small and large boxes of shortbread will be reduced by 60%:
Small Box (6 cookies):
Reg: $5.00 Sale: $3.00
Large Box (14 cookies):
Reg: $10.00 Sale: $6:00
To sweeten this holiday deal, delivery in Winnipeg is free!
This sale is on only while supplies last! Get your orders in as soon as possible to make sure you get this limited offer.
Wishing you a holiday season filled with good times, good food, and good friends!
Needless to say, things have been pretty crazy for me over the past couple of months. Moving back to Winnipeg, jumping into four farmers’ markets, and caring for a parent who is ill has been more challenging than I anticipated; it seems like I am always running from one place to another.
In order to keep some sanity, I have begun taking a day off here and there. And by “day off” I mean no computers, no cell phone, no obligations.
My favourite way to spend a day off is at one of Manitoba’s beautiful provincial parks. I recently spent some time wandering the Spirt Sands trails in Spruce Woods provincial park. Spirit Sands is considered to be Manitoba’s desert because of its large wind-patterned sand dunes and cacti. Though part of the trail is desert-like, the path leading towards the Devils Punch Bowl is rich with a variety of plant life.

Not sure what kind of plant this is, but it is lovely!
this past weekend I spent some time in the Whiteshell Provincial Park visiting Falcon Lake and West Hawk Lake. I even went out to Kenora, Ontario for the day just to walk around and do some window-shopping – it was nice to be back on Ontario soil just for the day!

Cutest tablecloth ever!
Now that the weekend is over I’m back to work! As you may have noticed, I updated my “Events” tab with two new upcoming events!
This year I will be participating in ManyFest from September 6th – 8th, and the Harvest Moon Festival from September 13th – 18th. I will be updating the pages as I have more information on the events. Stay tuned!
I also updated my 2013 Farmers’ Market
page as I am now attending the Wellness Institute market on Tuesdays starting August 13th, 2013. I hope you can make it out to one of the markets, and that you are making the most of summer while it’s here!
Starting July 18th I will be joining the Downtown Winnipeg Biz Farmers’ Market on a weekly basis!
It is located right behind the Hydro building downtown at the corner of Edmonton Street and Graham Street. The market will run every Thursday until September 5th, from 11:30-5:30.
Check out the Downtown Winnipeg Biz website for a full list of the vendors that will be coming to the market.
You can also take a look at the 2013 Farmers’ Markets tab on my website for all of the details about this market, and to find out what other markets I attend.
Opening day at the Wolseley Farmers’ Market was great!! The weather was lovely and there was a great turn-out! Thanks to all of my friends and family who were able to make it out for opening day!
I was thrilled with the response to the shortbread – everyone said they loved it! I even sold out of the Lemon and Rose Water flavours. This afternoon I’m going to whip up a few batches for the Wolseley market tomorrow.
Here are some pictures from yesterday for those of you who couldn’t make it out!
