Riley Goes to Saskatchewan Day 9 – Saturday June 10, 2017 Regina

I didn’t have a great morning as I don’t always sleep in when I’ve been up late drinking (more so now than when I was young) and the condo we stayed in was super bright. Then, shortly after 8, the in-laws called to inform us they would be there shortly for breakfast. We went to …

Riley Goes to Saskatchewan Day 8 – Friday June 9, 2017 Moose Jaw and Regina

On this morning we made a ridiculously heavy biscuits and gravy breakfast that we made once before this year (albeit with a few minor alterations). It’s great stuff, but it’s very, very heavy.

Riley Goes to Saskatchewan Day 7 – Thursday June 8, 2017 Manitoba again

This morning we woke up and ate our Riding Mountain National Park cinnamon buns. They were quite good but not as good as the ones from Saskatoon. Today we were supposed to go for a boat ride. So we got in the car and headed back to Manitoba to Lake of the Prairies.

Riley Goes to Saskatchewan Day 6 – Wednesday June 7, 2017 Manitoba

This morning we made pancakes and had a leisurely breakfast. That would prove to be a mistake.

Riley Goes to Saskatchewan Day 4 – Monday June 5, 2017 Yorkton and Melville

This morning we had the Kuchen (Kowach?) that we bought at the Farmer’s Market, which was pretty great. Then we went for a walk down to the end of the road, and then back to the other end of the road. I was not expecting all the trees as my idea of the farming part …

Riley Goes to Saskatchewan Day 3 – Sunday June 4, 2017 Saskatoon to Yorkton

This morning we woke up early again and went to the Park Cafe Diner in the formerly bad part of downtown. It was a solid diner breakfast and I got to try a kind of bacon I’ve never had before: schinkenspeck.

Riley Goes to Saskatchewan Day 2 – Saturday June 3, 2017 Saskatoon

We woke up pretty damn early on account of the time change and headed over to the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market probably not much longer after it opened. We wandered around, looked at the vendors, and had some snacks. We had not very good (too dense) scones and an absolutely amazing croissant. It was so good …

Riley Goes to Saskatchewan Day 1 – June 2, 2017 in Saskatoon

On Friday June 1, I went to Saskatchewan for the third time in my life. Why I went is sort of a long story. The short version of that story is that I was supposed to be in Europe for most of May but had to cancel my trip. Saskatchewan became the alternative because my …
