Extending Summer

We are half-way through summer but that doesn’t mean it is almost over! There is still plenty of time for outdoor activities and backyard barbecues. And, great news is that August also happens to be Willow Park Village’s 40th Anniversary! Lucky for you, I can tell you all about the best places to visit during the Willow Park’s birthday month.

First off, Cobs Bread. Yum. Who doesn’t love Cobs? This August, they are launching a brand-new item – The Apple Berry Danish. I can’t wait to give this a try. The Apple Berry Danish includes all of my favourite fruits; apples, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries! With fresh berries it is the perfect way to extend the summer.

In case you are wondering, it is definitely not too late to host a barbecue. We still have an entire month! Luckily, Meez Fast Home Cuisine has you covered! My favourite for a classic barbecue is their Blackened Spice Rub Chicken and endless election of chicken wings!

Another option for the perfect backyard barbecue is North Sea Fish Market! They get fresh fish and filet them in house every day! It is my number one choice for a fresh catch, and they have the best salmon. On a hot summer’s day, fish is a great alternative to burgers (especially if you have been eating burgers all summer like my family!).

Knowing that Willow Park Village is turning 40 in August, it is the perfect excuse for cupcakes from Crave! This month, Crave Cupcakes has a brand-new flavour called the Chocolate Dip. Their famous chocolate cake is topped with swirled vanilla buttercream and dipped in more chocolate. If that doesn’t sound good, I don’t know what does!

I hope you all have a great August! Remember to stop by Willow Park Village’s birthday pop-up shop August 18th to celebrate their 40th birthday!

Until next time,

XO Willow
