The Bridge Is Back!

posted by My Saskatoon    |   October 15, 2015 13:15

City Council held a special meeting early September to discuss the two new bridges being built in YXE.  A $252.6 million project, one of Saskatoon's newest bridge addition will be the replacement of the iconic Victoria Bridge.

The closing of the bridge five years ago had quite the reaction from Saskatoon residents. A popular route from the Broadway area to the city core, many people were sad to see it slightly demolished and closed down.

However, talks of the new traffic bridge has been in recent news and it has created a buzz in the city once again. Residents continuously ask the city council "What will the new bridge look like?" With the idea of remaining flexible in the design to save money, they say the outcome will be "sympathetic" to the original 1907 bridge.

The bridge is suspected to be competed by October 2018 giving the Broadways residents and surrounding area something to look forward to.

Saskatoon Asian Restaurant

posted by My Saskatoon    |   October 6, 2015 12:15
With new ownership in September 2014, Saskatoon Asian Restaurant provides quick service in a welcoming environment. Located on 2nd Avenue, it is the perfect spot for a short lunch break downtown or business meeting. 
We sat down with owner Kit Vong to chat about the way the restaurant has changed under new ownership. Here are a few questions that we had asked but make sure to read the entire Feature Business Article to learn more about Saskatoon Asian Restaurant and more photos of the space and delicious food!

 


 

 

 

How has Saskatoon Asian Restaurant changed since you took over?

Since we took ownership six months ago, I would say that the biggest change would be speed of service. The cooks haven’t changed, so the food has stayed the same, but people who are in a hurry can now get a meal here on a half hour lunch break. We serve a lot of business people in the downtown core of Saskatoon, so it is nice for those who have limited time to be able to come up here and have lunch really quickly. Our goal is to provide prompt service, but in a laid back atmosphere where people can have a business meeting and linger as long as they’d like, without having to worry about getting their meal in time if they need to leave. 

Do you serve dinner as well?

We are open until 9:00 in the evening, offering both dinner service and takeout. We deliver anywhere in Saskatoon as well, for those people who don’t want to leave the house! We have a lot of regulars who work or live downtown and like to walk over for their favourite lunch or dinner dish.

What would you say the most popular dishes are?
People love our vermicelli noodle bowls for lunch, and our sate noodle soups are really good. My personal favourite would be the sate chicken rice noodle soup. And I ate basil chicken every day for a while!

It's Halloween At Twisted Goods

posted by My Saskatoon    |   October 5, 2015 09:47

Things have gotten a little bit spookier at Twisted Goods this week! They have brought Halloween to the stores with some haunted housewares and spooky decor. 

 

                             

 

Here is what Lindsey, Virtual Merchandiser, has to say about it:

"Some of my top choices for Twisted Goods Halloween decor this year has got to be our multi-sized tin Jack-o-Lanters and our wide variety of adorable mugs. The tin Jack-o-Lanters are perfect for adding an element of Halloween to your door step without all the added work of carving a pumpkin. Plus, you can reuse them year after year.  

The mugs this season are too cute to handle. Show a little spirit of Halloween festiveness with an adorable pumpkin or ghost mug! We also have some enticing wearables this Halloween season. Several varieties of masquerade masks, sassy aprons, and even some spooky neck-ties!"

 

                                             

                                               

 

 

 

 

 

Twisted Goods will be handing out Halloween candy on Saturday, October 31st. Head down to the Centre Mall from 3:30-5pm and the Lawson Heights Malls from 4:30-6pm with your children!

Fall Foodie Friday: Reeces Pieces Blondies

posted by My Saskatoon    |   October 2, 2015 09:02

   It is officially October and it only means one thing: Halloween. If you  are attending any festivities this month and need a dessert to bring, then try out the Reeces Pieces Blondie. It has everything that we love;  chocolate, peanut butter and of course, the blondie.

 We all know the infamous White Chocolate Brownie at Moxies, well this is similar but kicked up a notch. Because, who doesn't love Reeces Pieces?  

 This simple and quick recipe will have you wanting seconds and thirds and quite possible never baking brownies again. Brownies are out, Blondies are in!

Photo Source: lilluna.com

 

 

   Reeces Pieces Blondie:     Recipe Source: lilluna.com 

       

   Ingredients:

  • ½ c butter, softened
  • 2 c brown sugar
  • ½ c peanut butter
  • 2 lg eggs
  • 1 TB vanilla
  • 2⅛ c flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ c Reeses Pieces
  • ½ c chocolate chips
 
 
    Instructions:
 
  1. In a large bowl, combine butter and brown sugar. Add the peanut butter and stir to combine. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Stir well.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Stir into the batter.
  3. Pour in the Reeses Pieces and chocolate chips. Gently mix.
  4. Evenly spread batter into a greased 9x13 pan.
  5. Bake at 350 for about 30 min or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool.

 

 

  If you are not a peanut butter fan then add chocolate chips or M&M's to the bowl instead. There are always ways to change up the recipe but given that it is Halloween season, the Reeces Pieces tie in nicely!
