Our Canadian meal was Salmon in a Maple Syrup Marinade, Poutine, Butter Tarts with homemade brown sugar pie crust and Classic Canadian Caesar cocktails. We love grilled salmon and the maple marinade made it even more delicious. Poutine is French fries topped with cheese curds and gravy. How could that not be yummy. The butter tarts were also delicious so the meal was success.
The Caesar required the most effort and had a lot of ingredients. The drink mix was Worcestershire sauce, BBQ sauce, pickle juice, soy sauce, tabasco sauce, horseradish, onion powder and Montreal steak seasoning. The Montreal Steak Seasoning was made up of paprika, crushed black peppercorn, kosher salt, garlic powder, onion powder, ground coriander, dill weed and crushed red pepper flakes. This concoction was mixed with Clamato and vodka. And finally, the Caesar rim was sea salt, celery salt, black pepper, garlic power, onion powder, chili powder and cayenne pepper.
Canada is known for it’s beautiful scenery, ice hockey, maple syrup, extreme politeness, cold winters and moose. It is the second largest country in the world. Haskell Free Library & Opera House is interesting in that it crosses over the international border between Vermont and Canada. A line on the floor indicates the US and Canada sides. People have to exit out the same door they came in or go to customs. The Hudson Bay sits on a gravitational anomaly that makes the gravity there less than the rest of the world. Canada has the worlds largest 3rd order lake island. It is an island in a lake, on an island in a lake on an island.
Rob and I went to Niagara Falls, Canada for our 5th anniversary and my family stayed in cabins at French River Lodge when I was a kid. French River is beautiful! I would like to visit Alberta to see Moraine Lake, Lake Louise and Peyto Lake. They all look gorgeous. I would also like to see and the Northern Lights. Natural Habitat Adventures has a 6 night tour package that sounds amazing. Trip highlights are, “View the northern lights from our glass Aurora Pod®, heated Aurora Domes, a cabin in the boreal forest, and a tepee warmed by a campfire”. They provide, “cold-weather gear including a parka, fleece neck buff, fleece jacket, waterproof pants, mittens and Arctic boots for use during your trip”.
