Fresh local food from the province of Saskatchewan

The First Thanksgiving...
...in my new house! It was a potluck, so I can't say it was entirely local fare. And since one family member is gluten-free, rice does apprear on the table in various forms.
The locally-produced items on this menu include a big fat chicken, coleslaw, carrot sticks, grape tomatoes, cheddar cheese and a jar of cranberry jelly. (Thanks for the jelly, Judith!) Who knows... that squeeze tube of senf from Germany could well have Saskatchewan mustard in it, too.
Since I married a fellow from Wisconsin, we celebrate two Thanksgivings. I'm already planning the next one, which I'm quite sure will include a Saskatchewan cherry pie.
"Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens" celebrates the colourful people and recipes that populated our province. It follows my first book "Prairie Feast: A Writer's Journey Home for Dinner." Saskatchewan tastes great -- I wrote the book on it!!
