In an earlier posting, I had mentioned my craving for poutine... the Canadian contribution to cardiac-clogging cuisine. Well, today I satisfied those cravings. For lunch today, I mixed fries, cheese curds and gravy and made my own poutine. For a first attempt, I must say it came out quite well. I loved it. The rest of the family were - shall we say - slightly less enthusiastic. Too bad for them. One thing I can say: although plain poutine is delicious by itself, topping it off with bacon bits will cause you to face Ottawa and bow down in reverence to our northern neighbo(u)rs. Yum!
