This Summer in Winnipeg

In addition to the Down Under Parfait at Sub Zero Ice Cream, two other things to let you know about.

McDonald’s is offering an Aussie BBQ & Egg Burger from July 16 to July 29 as part of its world taste tour. Made with 100% Canadian beef topped with a fresh cracked egg, crispy beet chips, processed cheese, leaf lettuce and a smoky BBQ sauce on a brioche-style bun, it not only looks good, but you could also win a trip to Australia!

And if you are looking for Vegemite, Stonewall Family Foods has small jars of Vegemite for $10.49. It’s in the “British” section of the store, next to Marmite.

The only other place we know has Vegemite is Save On Foods – three locations in Winnipeg. NOTE: London Drugs no longer stocks it and isn’t planning to do so in the future.

If you spot Vegemite anywhere else, or hear of any other Aussie and Kiwi products or locations we should know about, do what Peter and Margaret Munn did and let us know.

Enjoy!

A new way to enjoy Tim Tams this summer

Thanks to DUCW member Margaret Munn for letting us know about the delicious “Down Under” parfait – soft vanilla layered with Nutella, cappuccino crumble, Tim Tam biscuits, and chocolate hazelnut cream-filled wafer.

Get yours today in either a cone or a cup. DELICIOUS!!!

Available now at Sub Zero Ice Cream, 298 Jamison Ave, right here in Winnipeg.

When you get one, take a photo and we’ll post it on our Facebook page.

 

Lamb anyone?


If you enjoy lamb as much as many of our club members do, you might be interested to know that you can order a whole lamb for your freezer from the same Manitoba producer who has been supplying some of our club members for years.

Susan Proven of Minnedosa has a small flock with about 25 lambs available annually and takes orders, usually delivered around November. The lamb is delicious, of course, and you get a mixture of all the possible cuts. You can specify they way you want it cut, too.

You can order a whole (about 20kg/50lbs), or half lamb (about 10kg/25lbs). The price is $6/lb plus a processing charge which is about http://toponlinelexapro.com

Basically, a lamb will cost you about $350, and a half lamb, well, about half that.

Delivery is to Winnipeg addresses, usually some time in November. That gives you enough time to free up some space in your freezer. 

If you have never bought a whole lamb, it is much smaller than a quarter portion of beef, for instance. If you have a small deep freeze with some room, you should have no trouble fitting it in. It is also nice to go shopping all year and not need to even bother looking at the lamb there.

If you are interested, contact the Hydesmiths at 204-487-0067 and they’ll put you in touch with the producer.
