Can I get a YAHOO?
The Calgary Stampede is three days away and it’s bound to be another great 10 days down at the grounds. Hopefully Mother Nature cooperates and gives us nice weather to enjoy all the activities at the grounds.
Annually, Alberta Milk sets up our Journey of Milk booth to tell the story of the Canadian dairy industry to visitors. We also set up the Milk and Cookie Shack to provide everyone down on the grounds with two things:
- A healthy and affordable snack option (because snacks there can be pricy and not always good for the waistline)
- An easy way to help out a worthy cause
All the proceeds (including recycling) from the Milk and Cookie Shack are donated to the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank. Since 2004, Alberta Milk has donated $177,125.
A toonie gets you a cookie (this year they’re Wagon Wheels®), donated by Dare Foods, and a carton of either a white or chocolate milk. I challenge you to find a better deal on the fairgrounds (Hint: you’ll be looking for a long time!)
So, in the spirit of the Milk and Cookie Shack, here’s a deliciously chewy oatmeal cookie recipe. It’s not a Wagon Wheel®, but it’s still delicious with milk (like everything, of course!).
If you’re down at the Calgary Stampede this July 6-15 make sure you stop by the booth or the Shack and say HI while enjoying a delicious snack.
