My husband’s friend’s new wife just officially because a Canadian Perminant resident and so the girls are throwing her a Canadian themed bday party. I’m supposed to bring some “canadian” food (vegetarian) and I’d also like to find a certain poem about being Canadian but I can’t remeber what it’s called… it includes something about how we can give directions using both meters and miles or km and feet or something…. and that’s really all I remember haha! Sorry! but I’ll know it when I read it again.
Does anyone have any suggestions for Canadian vegetarian friendly food or Canadian themed poems?
@AllieBee12: Hmm the most obvious one would be poutine. Also anything that has maple syrup in it (I love those little maple leaf shaped candies!) Amother treat I love are Nanaimo bars and those are from Nanaimo BC.
@sugarpea: Haha Nanaimo bars are pretty much my favourite food ever.
A few other ideas would be anything from Tim Hortons (can’t get much more canadian than that), maybe a box of Tim bits. My FI is saying that supposedly dill pickle chips are canadian. I didn’t know that and I’m not sure if he’s right. I’m not a big fan of them but he loves them.
Oh! And beaver tails. I know you can’t bring those to a party but SO YUMMY and definitely Canadian
@medbride: Sadly no… this was a poem that a friend showed me in a book. It was more “genuine” if that makes sense… like it didn’t make fun or bash Americans it was just so “yes, yes taht explains us alright”
