On Monday’s Morning News, Melissa goes one-on-one with Colin James and learns how to make homemade mayonnaise with Dan Clapson while Jessica discovered fashionable footwear that will keep your feet dry.

Colin James at the Jazz Festival

I had a chance to meet Saskatchewan’s own Colin James during the Jazz Festival. He is a very talented man with over 25 years of experience in the music industry and credits growing up in Regina for a lot of his success.

We had a chance to talk about his music career and being inducted in the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame to how many guitars he has.

This wasn’t the first time I got to chat with Colin. About a year ago I happen to interview him while I was living in Kingston however that time I was wearing a zombie costume (don’t ask haha).

Needless to say, this time he wasn’t as frighten and thrown off.

Stay fashionable with wet weather footwear

I am loving the style of shoes for this summer- both men and women’s! It’s refreshing to see such bright bold colours in men’s footwear this season.

What’s big right now is the laser design and cut out on women’s shoes, so even if a shoe isn’t light and strappy for summer, there will be designs cut out on the sides to keep it cool!

We also touched on rain gear for… let’s face it the weeks of rain we’ve been getting… there’s lots to choose from aside from the classic rain boot!

Easy to make homemade mayonnaise

This week for Food for Thought we met up with food writer Dan Clapson and learned how to make his Spice of the Prairies burger. My favourite part of that burger has to be the blueberry aioli. I would have never of thought to use blueberry in a burger.

However the slight sweetness really worked well.

On top of that we also learned how to make mayonnaise from scratch which was a lot easier that I thought it would be. All it took was a few simple ingredients that most of us have in our kitchens already.

And an added bonus, at least for me, was I got to learn how to crack an egg with one hand (kinda).
