Meatless Mondays at Tavernetta

Now that spring has made an appearance, we can finally eat and drink on the backyard patio at Tavernetta. We're looking forward to eating fresh veggie dishes like the bagna cauda on Meatless Mondays.

Boxes of Cookie Dough Balls from Family Dough

You can get boxes of cookie dough balls at Family Dough at CrossIron Mills and Southcentre Mall. Life is good. They'd also make a great treat for Mother's Day.
