A few years ago, my husband and I set off for a weekend of camping in Meadow Lake, but my car had transmission trouble outside the Battlefords and we had to turn back. So, finally, my first visit to Meadow Lake!
I was invited to read from Prairie Feast at two events on one day. First, the afternoon in North Battleford for a book event at the public library. It was great to have the kids from Bready School in the audience asking all the right questions.
In Meadow Lake, the library organized a dessert evening at the seniors' centre, including a display of local-produced foods. Every dessert was made with a locally grown item, such as zucchini chocolate cake, baklava (dripping in honey) and pumpkin pie. I picked up a squeeze bottle of honey from the Parkland Honey Farm and a sack of potatoes. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful welcome!
