OMG! I’ve been so busy eating my way through the Stampede season that I JUST realized – Christmas time is 5 months from now. I need to get a move on things if I’m going to get everything done in time. I’ll post details later on…as we don’t want to spoil the surprise in case any of my friends and family who are getting my foodie treats are reading this 🙂
Time is ticking to source out ingredients, hit the farmers markets and cross my fingers that I’ll be able to find jars (unlike last year when I ran all over town to find the half pint size).
Places I’ve eaten at during Stampede include Home Tasting Room
, and of course, countless BBQ lunches, pancake breakfasts…and the stampede grounds for those irresistible mini donuts. Service has been great so far at most places….but I’ve been reminded why I don’t ever go to Ceili’s by choice.
