Supporters of the Royal Family everywhere are excited to watch the pageantry surrounding Prince Harry marrying sweetheart Meghan Markle. Gatherings across the globe are celebrating their happiness and wishing them well.
Victoria Day weekend is often celebrated by many with friends and family, albeit on a smaller scale than on display in England today. Are you having an elegant garden party, complete with lemonade and sweets? Or perhaps a picnic in the park is more your style. Whatever you choose, have a wonderful long weekend!
We will be closed on Monday May 21st to celebrate with friends and family as well.
Victoria Day Weekend has long been viewed as the kickoff to summer weekends, whether they are spent camping or cottaging, at the trailer or beach, or simply on fun-filled road trips. Are you ready? Do you have a supply of goodies? Lemonades for the heat of the day? Hot chocolates for around the campfire? Candies for a snack? Spices, rubs, marinades, seasonings and dips for the bbq or picnics?
Enjoy the downtime this weekend!
Fans of the royal family have been eagerly anticipating Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle on Saturday May 19th. Are you going to be among those who get up early to watch the festivities as they happen live? Are you prepared with your English teas to sip on as day breaks on this side of the pond?
In preparation for the first long weekend in the year which kicks off camping, cottage, trailer and hopefully beach season, today we showcase some of the ways to punch up bbq time. Fancy mustards, burger seasonings… even seasoning for sweet potato fries are some different options. Or there are hot sauces, ketchups and chutneys to play with, along with a stuffer burger press to create something extra special.
Happy National Chocolate Chip Day! What a great day to start thinking about snacks for the upcoming Victoria Day Weekend. The kickoff weekend to summer for many people has us entertaining thoughts of warmer weather, yet nights spent around the campfire.
Two treats in keeping with the theme of the day – mint chocolate chip fudge and chocolate chip biscotti – would both make delicious treats to be shared by a group, or savoured solo. Start planning!
