We are thinking of driving to Edmonton this coming weekend. Are we going to see friends, well we will see friends but they are not the reason we are going. Do we want to go to Edmonton Mall, yeh we will go there, but it is not the reason we are going, although shopping in a huge mall will be a nice change from the tiny big mall Saskatoon has.
The main reason why I want to go is so I can buy Araby bread! Like my son calls. There are no Arabic store in Saskatoon. Superstore does carry some Arabic items, along with some pita bread, but a Greek bakery in Calgary makes them, and they suck!! It is hard to make them into a sandwich because they betfatfato (break apart). Lately all of us only want to eat araby bread, my son wants his peanut butter, cheese, hummus sandwiches all made with pita.
Since it will be spring break and my husband has a day off. Well make it into a four-day weekend, and we might even drive to Jasper!!! So that will be fun, I know once I mention jasper my husband will be sold on the idea!
Edmonton is a five-hour drive from Saskatoon. But hey spring is here (well not today, it is snowing and a –9 feels like –18 degrees, what the hell?!!!!!) this will be our first mini vacation this year, and next month when the weather gets nicer we’ll drive to Vancouver a good 12-15hour drive through the mountains, our dream trip!
So yeh the main reason for this weekend getaway is to get araby bread, but it will be fun tooJ
