As far as I know - some of my family - came from the "harsh", "wind-swept", "track-less", "fridgid", expanses of Canada!
So there!

Sorry, "creeper"!
If we're going to be up there it's for work - no touring!
We'll be doing siding, windows, doors.
We don't know exactly when and if this is going to happen -
we just got a window job down here.
However, we have had some people, invite us up there - you know -
up in the "frozen", "wind-swept", "trackless", "fridgid", wastelands of
Canada!

Wait a minute!?!!
I'm in the "frozen", wind-swept", "trackless", "fridgid", wastelands of
Chicago!
What?!?
(I think I misspoke!)
Sorry!!

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


I just found out this past weekend that one of my ancestors came from Canada. On my mom's side of the family. I think they're all from Ireland originally.

I wonder if he ordered his french fries with gravy on them.

Hey I thought it was vinegar on fries that you guys thought was weird and not lumpy gelatinous gravy. Ever tried poutine? Me neither ..sounds sickening

What exactly is American cheese? I've heard of it, but it is not sold here under that name. We have real cheddar cheese blocks and process cheese slices that you would put in a grilled cheese sandwich. Which category does American cheese fit into?

American cheese fits into the processed cheese category -
(not the best cheese!)
It's the processed cheese slices.
However, they do have "real" American cheese - in blocks -
not bad.

Gravy on French Fries?
Sacre-Bleu! - Mon Dieu! - "OMG"!

Try blue-cheese dressing!!
Try ketchup mixed with "mayo"!

Try anything your taste-buds can come up with!

So its just labeled " Real" American cheese and not cheddar like the rest of the world calls it?

Blue cheese..no thanks, it gets in my mouth. The only stinky cheese I'm eating is reggiano parmesean

Vinegar on fries? No thanks. My daughter would LOVE it though. She likes salt & vinegar chips. I tried the poutine on fries when I was up in Canada. But it was at either a McDonald's or A&W, so it was kind of salty. Maybe it would be good at a real restaurant though.

American cheese is the orange stuff that is individually wrapped in plastic. Kids like it and yes, it's good for grilled cheese sandwiches. We used to take cheese sandwiches to school for lunch (when there was no lunch meat in the fridge).

Do you have Velveeta in Canada? I can't believe how expensive it is here.

Mix ketchup, mayo and thousand island dressing to get the "special sauce" that McDonald's puts on their Big Mac burgers.

Awright, I just got to ask, what in the world is poutine? I'm so far behind that I just found out the name of some Chinese food I like called Kimchi, that stuff is goooOOoood. I don't like the American cheese that is individually wrapped I like it in a chunk but already sliced. Now the government cheese I have seen folks get years back was some kinda good. I never figured out how they got that cheese though.

Yes we have Velveeta. Its the only process cheese I will buy. I generally prefer real food though

Poutine at Mcdonalds? Were you in Quebec. I've never seen it there. Thats another place we don't frequent. My kids have to be forced to eat there. Nobody likes it. We go to Subway a lot or Pita Pit.

Jim: Poutine is melted cheese and gravy over fries
Barb: No vinegar on fries??? Can't eat them without. What about fish and chips and the heavier malt vinegar?

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


Its Annie's BD today. At that age you are still supposed to bring in treats for the class at lunch. So I ordered a tray of pull-a-parts from the bakery. Greatest thing. Cupcakes 12choc and 12 vanilla with a layer of icing on top so it looks like a cake except no messing with plates and slicing.

After my swim this morning I thought I'd have just enough time to get to the bakery and back to the school for lunch.
I always forget something. This morning it was my brush only I didn't realize it until my hair was wrapped in a towel for 10 minutes

Me = Medusa I just told everybody they let me out on Wednesdays

If it was at McDonald's, it would have been in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta or BC. It could have been A&W though.

I love fish & chips. But no vinegar on the fries and no malt vinegar. Confession: I've never tried either. So I will give it a try. I know my daughter is going to love it.

Where's Mike? I hope his computer isn't giving him problems again.

Winter came back to Michigan. We had a few snowflakes falling yesterday.
