“And in the end, a packet of St Hubert dehydrated gravy, Kraft slices, and McDonald’s fries, because that’s all you can get in Cowtown.”
Ugh. Say it isn’t so.
I have a recent addition to my extended family through marriage of a young man from the Land of the Maple Leaf...the Great White North, if you will. Shortly after meeting him a while ago, the conversation turned to poutine.
(DISCLAIMER: I have never had poutine; although I am certain that, based on what I have heard here, I would love it and am anxious to try it. While I am no Anthony Bordain, I pride myself in enjoying many cuisines, including Hawai’ian, Cajun, Vietnamese, and of course general menus of Asian, Italian and Mexican origin...and of course the good ol’ American Cheeseburger.)
I only know about poutine from what all you fine folks here have told me, and my subsequent Internet searches.)
Me: So what’s all this fuss I hear about Poutine?
Lauren: (his new wife—from Toledo, Ohio—and the niece of my wife) Poutine? What that?
Me: It’s supposed to be yummy. (I then describe it to her.)
Jason: It’s okay.
Me: *eyebrows raised* That’s it? Just okay?
Me: *Stares in disbelief*
Jason: I mean, I liked it and all. I’d...just rather have French fries...from, like, McDonald’s, or something.
Me: *making excited gestures with my hands* Let me see your passport. Are you really from Canada? Born and raised?
Jason: Yup. I just don’t see the big deal we Canucks make about it.
Me: *jaw drops* Really.
