Guess What I Ate Last Night?

And it was delish!!! Harvey's Poutine. Not bad if that is your closest source. Damn good. American amigos wondering what it is? Go here. And if you EVER have a chance to try it, just do it! I never realized how many truly Canadian dishes are really my favourites. I just couldn't carry on without buttertarts (make them once every couple of months), peameal bacon (case in the freezer right now), Nanaimo bars, and gave the kids Pogos the other night as a treat for dinner. If I moved to the states or anywhere else for that matter, I would be gastronomically challenged. So would insurance cover shipping Canadian grub to me for health reasons?

Absolutely impossible to live without them! I feel sorry for the rest of the world who has to go without!

Wow...Poutine sounds ummm...interesting. LOL Then again, we have some strange food her in the states, too.

Only place I found poutine (in B.C.) was at Burger King. Kids were not brave enough to try it but I'm trying to convince the family that we should take a road trip to Totonto next summer.

It should be covered. Think you could get some sort of Canadian Culture grant for it LOL? I'm vegetarian but once in a while, I must have poutine, with the made from dead cow gravy. What can I say, I'm a flexible vegetarian at times!

And don't forget good tea! When I travel to the US, I always bring some tea with me because all I ever find in US stores is Lipton. Talk about a homesick Canuck, I also bring Hortons gorund coffee with me. I'm going on a cruise over Christmas and I know they'll feed me good, but no way do I leave the country without tea & Hortons!

And what about Smarties? Highly superior to M&M's if you ask me. My son has taken to poutine in a big way in the high school caf. It even beats out pizza and that's saying something. Oh, and what about Beaver Tails? yum. Monika's right about the tea.
