Found this




Sorry I missed most of yesterdays posts, we were out furniture shopping all day Saturday! Our son just bought a house..... 


I think you could add one more Canadian food invention which is another favorite of mine - Peameal bacon which I think first appeared in Toronto in the late 1800s. It is pickled pork loin coated with coarse yellow corn meal and is delicious thin sliced and fried for breakfast or sandwiches, thick sliced and grilled, or roasted whole. 


Jeez, I need to get back to Canada! Chelsea buns, eccles cakes, rich teas, Peek Freans!!!

Good morning, 


I do a Nanaimo Bar that has more of an "icing" filling. I'm with those that think it's too sweet. It's 1/2 cup butter (I use margarine), 4 tbsp. instant vanilla pudding mix, 4 tbsp milk, and 4 cups of icing (powdered) sugar. Cream the first ingredients together then add the icing sugar. This is for a 9x13 pan. 


Also, for the topping I use semi-sweet chocolate chips and it works great. I live in the US (Married an American) but am B.C. born. I take Nanaimo Bar to family gatherings and it's eaten, a lot, and many requests to take some home. 


My mom, at 93, is still making butter tarts. Her filling includes currents. I freeze mine to last and the DH loves eating them frozen.
