For Mom's actual birthday, we had supper and cake with the family, but on the Saturday after her birthday, the four of us went for a drive toward Saskatoon to a few cool places. We had to stop near Rosetown for me to get some pictures of a beautiful Flax field.
We arrived at Solar Garden's south of Saskatoon just in time for lunch. We took a little walk around the grounds and I was in heaven. Everyone knows how much I love succulents and there were thousands at this place as well as hundreds of gorgeous arrangements.
And these two cutie black labs.
Inside the restaurant part is filled with a really cool mix of many styles of antiques.
We ordered lunch and a couple drinks and waited quite a while, but it was totally worth it. Poutine made with deliciously cooked chunks of potatoes.
I got the gazpacho and goat cheese and roasted beet salad. the best of both that I have ever had.
Everybody else got these delicious homemade pizzas with really neat flavors. Mom's was a Big Mac pizza!
After we were totally stuffed. we went out to the Olive Oil and vinegar Tasting room for more unneeded food, but I'm a sucker for olive oil and vinegars. I found a few great ones to bring home.
We found what is probably the most difficult mini golf course I have ever played. It also had this view beside it which made it better. Jesse destroyed all of us as well.
Next up was the Berry Barn which I haven't been to in years. It is one of the most famous places in the Saskatoon area because of it's beautiful location right on the river and it's delicious food.
I got the Berried Treasure, a crisp made with Saskatoons, Blueberries and Raspeberries that was unbelievable. Jim got the Saskatoon Berry Pie which you can never go wrong with.
Another gorgeous Canola field.
We made a quick pitstop at Dakota Dunes Casino to use our free plays and get some Tim Hortons. Yes there is a Tim's right inside the casino now!
Our last stop on the way home was White Bear for some wings that I have raved about many times on this blog!
We had such a great family day with some delicious food and fun times on our little tour. Happy birthday Mom!
