Happy Canada day!

Yes it is that special day when the weather is probably about the same here and in Nova Scotia!!

Today was a day at work like any other (actually it was a very weird and stressful day at work, but I can't talk about it) with a pretty ordinary ride at either end. But we have a Canadian staying with us for a few weeks, so we decided to celebrate with ... hot dogs!
Forgive the soft light but it is totally dark here at 7pm, it is winter after all. I made potato salad, the proper kind with Miracle whip, peas, paprika... but best surprise ever, BoaB made fresh biscuits, and sugared up some strawberries and whipped cream for strawberry shortcake!

I nearly forgot to take a picture before I completely devoured it. Kerin (our distinguished guest) supplied rye and gingerale. Very authentic repast je pense. Bonne fete Canada!

Happy belated Canada Day! Though when I was in uni, the Canadians celebrated in mid-October. Is that a different holiday?

PS - love the new blog look!

Turkey day (thanksgiving) is in October. Canadians can't wait til November like Americans because by then winter has come and we don't feel very thankful anymore.

Here's a song to celebrate Canada Day

Mae! How very naughty, yet somehow appropriate ; )
