I have mixed feelings about doing this and although I have lived here in the States for 12 years, Canada is my home and will always be my home. I was born Canadian and will die Canadian, but now I will also be American. Making my decision to become American had many pros and cons and probably if I stated single, I wouldn't get my American Citizenship.... I pay taxes here and many people I meet think me as American until I say the word about, buried, semi and possibly a few more words that we say different. But I can tell you it is not because I say "Eh". I am not an "eh" girl and it is not part of my vocabulary. I does make me laugh that people think that "eh" is a Canadian word as when I lived in central Wisconsin, I heard it more often there then I did when I was in Saskatchewan.
As I sit wondering what I should do for my final All Canadian - Canada Day, I think about what food is Canadian. The first thing that comes to mind at least to me is butter tarts. Butter tarts are probably one of my favorite foods and is something we always made Christmas Eve for our evening get together. YUM! my mouth is watering.

Along with the chocolate bars, there are the potato chips.... ketchup chips, dill pickled chips, and salt and vinegar chips. Although they are found here in the states, they still taste better when I am at home...
Home... Canada... The Maple Leaf forever. I will be making something that is truly Canadian for Canada Day and I hope to post it on Canada Day.
