brought to you by Janes Family Foods.
We hope you are enjoying a great long weekend wherever you are in Canada today. We're keeping it short and sweet today but we do have a few things to share.
The ladies from Feast - An Edible Road Trip are really underway with their cross Canada road trip exploring Canadian food. Last week, Dana and Lindsay rolled into Edmonton and Calgary. While they were in Calgary, they co-hosted the first FBC/Feast tweetup along with our lovely FBC host, Vincci Tsui at Cafe Gravity. It sounds like everyone had a great time!
We're pretty excited to announce that the next FBC/Feast tweetup will be happening in in Saskatoon on August 12th at the Rook and Raven. If you're in that part of the world, come on out and meet Lindsay and Dana and our FBC co-host Andrea MacLeod for a fun evening of mingling and nibbles! You can register (it's free!) on Eventbrite!

Julie from Pass the Ketchup is hosting a giveaway on her blog until August 11th. The prize package includes a Babycakes Mini Cupcake Maker, Tim Hortons or Starbucks gift card and a pack of green paper straws. Contest is open now until August 11th. If you're interested, head on over!
