* Delicious 'Cow Pies'

One thing you learn quickly as a farm girl is cow pies in the field. Not all "cow" pies should be avoided at all costs. There are, however, exceptions to the rule -- special Saskatoon 'cow pies'.

It all started with an abundance of Saskatoon berry bushes growing in my yard. Mix in a dash of Neil Richards who was munching on a slice of pie and said "You should sell these the market to raise money for the cow. They're good." I replied, "it's not worth it for what you can charge." At this point Neil raised the stakes and won the hand -- he said he'd pay $12 or $14 for one. I said sold - he could have a pie for the cow $12. Craig Harkema said he'd take one too. Jane Lamothe and Doug MacDonald also took a pie and my friend Marie Green.

4 "cow" pies = $48 towards Clarabelle

Notice: No cows were harmed in the making of these pies in any way.
