It’s fowl supper season! I’m a bit slow off the hop on this, as the season has been upon us for some time already – but I’m here to tell you that it’s not too late to get in on some fowl supper goodness. Last night, for example, I had the pleasure of enjoying Sedley’s supper, and it was a good one; featuring mashed potatoes, carrots, turnip (a must!), stuffing, coleslaw, turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce. Sedley gets bonus points for having cabbage rolls, which is not something on offer at all fowl/fall suppers. There was also an array of pies to choose from including apple, pumpkin, Saskatoon berry, and rhubarb. I’m pretty sure I also spied raisin, but it was just a little too far out of reach, so I got what I thought was Saskatoon berry but turned out to be cherry. Don’t mind if I do!
If you’ve never been to one of these suppers, you really owe it yourself to take one in. It combines two of my favourite things: community engagement and good eatin’, and proceeds go towards the communities in question.
I was at Strasbourg’s two weeks ago, which I wrote about in glowing terms the first time I tasted the pleasures their supper had to offer, last year. Once again, they did not disappoint. Many fowl supper aficionados will tell you that Strasbourg puts on a supper to beat the band.
Feeling left out? Well don’t! There are many more suppers to enjoy in the coming weeks, all within reasonable driving distance from Regina, including Milestone (October 27), Wolsley (also October 27), and Craven (November 3) where the fine folks there are putting on a pit beef supper. I’m intrigued!
So get out there! And don’t forget to wear your stretchy pants!
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine.

Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
