Next Saturday is July 1st, and it will be Canada’s 150th birthday. To get us in the celebration mood, I’ve selected Canadian-themed recipes and ingredients for this week’s menu.
The pork chops and baked beans have maple syrup – a favourite Canadian ingredient. We’ll have peameal bacon with the beans too.
Wild rice is another tasty food from Canada, and we don’t have that too often. Salmon and other cold-water fish are popular here, and Keith loves grilled scallops, so they’re on the menu too.
We usually have Tourtière on Christmas Eve, but we could have it this week too. We’ll buy one at the grocery store, because it will be too hot to make one.
We’ll round out the week with an easy dinner of Swiss Chalet – it’s a Canadian tradition, and will give us a break from cooking!
