Happy Canada Day to all my lovely Canadian friends and family!
It's homesick day to me...
But tonight we're celebrating with homemade poutine! Well, it's not really homemade... I guess assembled is more like it. For those of you non-Canadians out there, poutine is a Canadian delicacy that simply must be tried to be appreciated: French fries topped with gravy and cheese curds. Excuse me while I wipe away the drool.
Of course, there is nowhere in Kansas (that I know of!) to procure this delicious treat, so we recreate the meal of our Canadian wedding night but purchasing a giant order of Five Guys fries, topping it with a jar of Heinz homestyle turkey gravy, and muenster cheese (no cheese curds to be had around here either!). Pop in the microwave for a minute or two and enjoy this heart-stopping (um, literally!) treat. Trust me, you must try it before you judge!
On another note, I've just added this delicious treat to the etsy shop:
Red line agate, sterling silver, and punctuated by a mint green bead of aventurine.
Now don your toque and go celebrate this glorious day!
