Nothing makes me appreciate Canada more than when I’ve been away from it.
Last summer,I was in Portland during Canada Day. Earlier this week, I was in France. I’m happy to be back in Canada and ready to celebrate Canada Day!
Here are some Canadian things that I’m going to do this weekend.
I’m going to hang out with my Solar Mountie ($25) in a sunny spot. He cheerfully waves and stand on duty for you. He’s also official Mountie gear, and 10% of the purchase goes towards Youth at Risk programs across Canada.. www.kikkerland.com
When I have a quiet moment, I’m probably going to cook something yummy from the Sobo Cookbook! Maybe polenta fries or a crispy snapper sandwich. This book is filled with Canadian recipes from Vancouver Island. The Sobo Cookbook at Random House
Finally, I’ll head up to Ajax to check out fireworks and have some delicious food truck eats at the free Abbey’s Kitchen Canada Day event at Ajax Downs.
What will you do? Happy Canada’s Day!
