I'm getting a kick out of this thread. Biev, I just got back from visiting my folks in Florida. Dad's family is Quebecoise in origin. One thing I bring him from here in the midwest is cheese curds. I realized after a bit he was sort of tucking them away in the fridge to keep them to himself (his dad was a dairy man in Ham Nord). They're very common here, but almost unheard of in Florida.

Fun thread - I usually don't care for chains for anything other than a quick bite to eat. Of all the ones mentioned I prefer Outback (the pork chops are all I ever order - yum!), Macaroni Grill - although I see some people are saying they have gone bad fast - I have not been in over two years so now I am leary. I also like Pappadeux and Krispy Kreme and Cheesecake Factory.

I did not see anyone mention PF Changs or Sal Carvo. I would have to say those are my favorite chains.

Actually the Zuppa Tuscana is Olive Gardens Kale enhanced soup. The Pasta Fagioli soup is the one with meat in it. The kitchen staff at some Olive Gardens also have nick named it "Italian Chili".

Ham Nord is a very nice little community in the Eastern Townships. I don't know Ham Nord that well, except that Danielle Laberge has a company out in that area call 'Armoire aux herbs' that makes natural tinctures and that type of thing.

Small world.
