Ever since I can remember I've heard the comment that there is "no difference" between Canadians and Americans. I respectfully beg to differ as there is a difference on so many levels! We have unique Canadian culture consisting of Canadianisms, a Canadian perspective on world events, Canadian cuisine as well as products and foods only available in Canada. This blog is dedicated to celebrating all things Canadian from "my perspective" as a Canadian. Please enjoy your visit and be sure to visit often.

Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We're different people from you and we're different people because of you. Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is effected by every twitch and grunt. It should not therefore be expected that this kind of nation, this Canada, should project itself as a mirror image of the United States.

Food Day Canada

We are real foodies here so would like to share with you that July 31, 2010 is the 8th annual cost-to-coast Food Day in Canada.   This event is a national celebration of restauranteurs, suppliers, grower, farmers and foodies who enjoy Canada's unique culinary diversity and creativity.  We will be celebrating with all Canadian foods that day but then we eat mainly Canadian foods most days.  Dinner will be grilled Canadian beef (ribeye steaks) served with local Canadian sweet corn and new potatoes served on the dock enjoying our view of the Great Lakes waterways.  We may have a campfire after dinner as well.  It will be a grand day filled with great Canadian foods!  You can be sure butter tarts will make an appearance for us to enjoy while the kids are filling themselves with fresh, local watermelon.
