As most of us know, finding good gluten-free and keto recipes can be hard and time-consuming to get right. That's why Antlers and Oak Diner have teamed up with Jen Ireland from Jens Simply Delicious to offer great gluten-free and keto-friendly treats in their grab and go cooler! The grab and go cooler features pre-packaged items that are perfect for a quick lunch, supper, or snack! Now there is something in the cooler for any diet! This was the first week they were available, some of the new products in the grab and go cooler were caramel pecan brownies, cheesecake cups, and cheese bagels.
I reached out to Jen Ireland to ask her some questions about these new products!
What are some of your favorite recipes you have made?
" I am really enjoying the no-bake gluten-free and keto cheesecake cups. I look forward to trying ones with natural berry flavors. I really enjoy homemade cooking/baking, anything from pasta to stuffed chicken breast, anything I can bbq, and delicious sides to go with it all. The list really never ends for your favorites when you love what you do.
What are some new products we will be seeing in the grab-and-go cooler soon?
"We plan on doing so much as we head forward into this new adventure but you will also be seeing other menu items, not just gluten-free and keto-friendly so stay tuned"
How was your first week of sales?
"It went really well! There was a lot of interest from people who are gluten-free and keto. They said they cant wait to see what else we come up with. The brownies and bagels were a sell-out, plus great feedback on the cheesecake cups!"
Although this year and their grad ceremony are not traditional, our Grads will still be celebrating with their families in a “households only” event. However, you can help them celebrate by attending their parade - Wednesday, June 23 at approximately 4:00. Listen for the fire truck siren. It will be a little longer this year as they must be in groups of 5 or less and the route has changed so spectators can distance according to our current regulations.
This map will be available in the events tab on the website if you ever need to view it.
Minary Bakery is offering grad cupcakes this year! Make sure to pre-order. The color of icing can change if you want, they are $7.50 for a 6 pack.
Vandalism in the Park
Unfortunately, Souris Park had some vandalism on Friday night. Benches were turned over, the recycling bin by the tower was moved, and trash was left around the park. Let's hope that this was the last time!

Chicken Chef made this post on the fundraiser they are hosting!
One of Canada's most important properties needs your help!! The Hillcrest Museum located in Souris is currently fundraising for major repairs to a roof that can no longer be patched together.
A generous Local Artist has donated a painting to the cause that will be available for viewing in our restaurant. We are holding a sealed bid auction for the painting and will be donating 100% of the proceeds to the Hillcrest Museum. Ballot style entry - in-store only, no purchases necessary.
We also have a donation box (museum-owned) located on our front counter if you prefer to donate directly. Thank you for your consideration.
Come in and check out the "Glamourous Peacock". Bids will close July 11 8:00 pm, and the highest bidder will be contacted
