Those in the know always stop for gas when they drive by Hanley, Saskatchewan, because you get a free loaf of homemade bread just for filling up. This is the fourth in a series of recipes to make with day-old Hanley bread.

1½ cups rhubarb cut in small pieces
½ cup lingonberries (low bush cranberries)
½ cup sugar
3 eggs
1 cup half-and-half cream
1 tbsp orange juice or orange liquor
½ tsp cinnamon
4 cups bread cut in ½–1 in. pieces

Toss together the rhubarb, lingonberries (fresh or frozen) and sugar. In another bowl, whip together the eggs, half-and-half cream, orange juice and cinnamon. Stir the fruit into the egg mixture, then stir in the bread to coat well. Pour the bread mixture into a baking dish. Bake at 375F for 40 minutes.

Hi Amy Jo!

Good on ya for your adventure into "eating local!"
I know you live a long way from here. But, FYI, I am onsending a notice of an event at our place this fall which might interest you.

Dear Friends,

On Sat. Sept. 1 - '07, (Labour Day weekend) we are planning an event on our acreage northwest of Roblin to celebrate local food & locally-made products. Tentatively called "Earth Day Too," we hope to have several food producers in the area like yourselves, (organic or non) set up tables and sell your wares.
Plans also call for displays, handouts, leaflets, videos and short films with the themes being the environment, sustainability, globalization, family farms, organics, fair trade, etc.
For the kids, I'll have free colouring books or pumpkins. For the adults, free ball caps.
Vendors will need to bring their own tables. In case of bad weather, a limited amount of protection is available (i.e. a large awning) for vendor tables on a first come-first serve basis
Kindly confirm your attendance via return email or 'phone (204) 937-3055 no later than July 5th.

Many thanks,
Larry & Rowena Powell
