Oh So Canadian


Happy Saturday! I just returned from my annual “Sugaring Off” trip to the “Sugar Shack” or “Cabane à sucre” in French. If I’ve lost you, Sugaring Off is basically an excursion to the country side to enjoy a Québécois inspired meal, which involves lots and lots of maple syrup! The meal includes a variety of unique dishes including pickles, picked onions, pea soup, boiled peeled potatoes,ham, mini hotdogs with maple syrup, scrambled eggs and “sugar pie” for dessert; made with you guessed it, maple syrup. It’s truly unlike any other meal I eat all year. There are also farm animals to see and my absolute favourite part, “la tire”. La tire is basically boiled maple syrup that is poured onto the snow and cools into a taffy like candy that you roll onto a Popsicle stick to enjoy. Overall, the day was well spent with family and friends and I’m already looking forward to going again next year.
