If you want all the details on how to make this Canadian dish just click on the above link. This dish should be avoided if you are watching your intake of fat or calories but if you want something so totally delicious just go for it. Believe me it is so delicious. It began in Quebec, Canada but is spreading to other parts of Canada and also can be found in a few eastern states. Let me know what you think if you are eating it for the first time or second or third or fourth........

Old wagon..........

Hi everyone,
As some of you know by now I am from The Eastern Townships a small town of about 19,000 Magog, Quebec. My husband and I lived there for about 30 years. It will always hold so many precious memories for us. It has some of the best scenery in the world, beautiful lakes and mountains. We have many great friends there and we love to go back for visits. We have two very special friends Brenda and Richard that always want us to stay with them and we always do. They are the best of people who live in a big log home near the lake. Lily is their black standard poodle, I swear she knows our car when we pull in the driveway and she is at the car door immediatley when our car rolls to a stop. My hubby and I always put a lot of miles on our car when we are there driving around looking at all the scenery and visiting old friends and of course all the relatives.
Here is one photo of an old wagon already for autumn. It was taken by a fellow Townshipper I hope she doesn't mind sharing with you all.

The next photo is of Jay Peak in the background and St. Benoit du Lac it is a benedictine abbey that was built in 1912, yes it is 100 years old this year. I took this photo, hope you like it.This time of year we always went there to pick apples. They also have a local delicacy called curd cheese. On our last visit we brought back 80.00 worth for family and friends. So yummy, we make it in to poutine. Do you all know what that is??? Also in the photo is Lake Memphremagog, the northern end of the lake is in Magog, Quebec and the southern tip is in Newport, Vermont. To my family this will always be our first home, but southern Ontario is our new home now.

Happy autumn everyone, I will be back with some stitching photos soon I promise......................
