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?

Well… POUTINE! 😛 You can find vegetarian gravy recipes and its oh so very canadian! Also, maybe do pancake sticks with maple syrup?

@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.

If you can bring dessert, make some Nanaimo Bars! Yum!

Maybe you’re thinking of the speech from the “I am Canadian” Molson ads?

@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

@MissPoutine: Ha! I love that your name is Poutine too!
@NickysGirl14: @WannaBeeMrsB: I think one of the other girls is bring nanaimo bars, so that’s covered
@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”

It’s probably just a spin-off and not originally Canadian, but Beaver Tails are delicious 😀

You could bring mix for caesar cocktails. The drink was created in Calgary.

Bring something ethnic- we’re CANADA- we’re multi cultural!

When it comes to “Canadian” cuisine a lot depends on WHERE in the country you are…
Here is the Wikipedia Link that will get you started on some great ideas:
