THIS is some of the things THAT happened today. This lovely lady is Stephanie and she is one of my co-workers who hails from our neighbors to the north: CANADA! In her honor and her homeland we had a celebration for Canada Day. (We will take any excuse to celebrate..especially if food is involved) Some of the food was eerily familiar..like Moose Sticks. I don't know, but with mustard and coney sauce it sure looked and tasted like a hotdog to me. Plus the package said hotdog and it was made in New York...Yep, takes alot to pull one over on this brainieack.
Stephanie made this lovely poster to educate us about her country.
Food native to Canada. No one brought syrup, bacon and for most of the workers who were very disappointed....beer.
A half eaten Canadian cream stick..NO, it wasn't eaten by me!
Someone made friendship bread because we all know Canadians are the friendlies people on the planet! Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian blogger friends!
This also happened today. I told you I was interviewed for our local newspaper's cooking column.."Cook of the Week"..well these pics are the result..and that's just sort of scary! I worry that the recipes won't turn out as good for the readers and then I'll have angry, hungry people knocking at my door..wait, I don't think they put my address in..or did they? I better go back and read it!
And to end the "this and that" post: This came yesterday: I won a Vera Bradley bag from Vicki at 2 bags full..(check out her blog from my sidebar since I'm an idiot and couldn't get the link to happen..it's really a fun blog!) That was the best surprise! Thanks again Vicki!
