(Andy, I don't actually like maple syrup on bacon, I was just being goofy. I DO however prefer back bacon to the regular stuff)
Alix, the next time I visit Canada, I'm going to order poutine. Something I have to try before I die.

Also would like to try an authentic tourtiere.

Every time I have been out to eat up in Canada and order fries they have offered gravy. No one has specified what type, what's in it or anything else about it.

I usually almost always say no, but I don't mind eating local.

I was up in Toronto on business for Y2K. The company was nice enough to send Kathleen along with me She insisted I speak with my coworker to make sure we had something Canadian while we were there.

When I asked him what would be a good Canadian meal he responded "bacon". I asked if there was anything else and he said "no, just bacon".

Sounds like your co-worker needs to expand his culinary horizons.

I just want to know what the right way to pronounce "poutine" is. Is it "poo-teen"?

Are you telling me you don't eat fries with gravy down south? I personally found it a bit weird to see folks eating fries with mayo, but hey, who am I to argue?

Poutine is VERY tasty, but it might just be your last meal if you have a cholesterol problem to start with!

Usually ketchup on the fries. My father likes mayo on them. I can't do mayo.

Seriously? Gravy on fries is Canadian? I could swear I've had it when I've been in the US.

My diet (eating habits) have changed so much over the years, it's difficult to pinpoint. I've gone from eating starches with little meat and veg in my early years to eating veg with a little meat and starch today. Along the way I had my carnivorous years, which I still revert to on occasion. I think I'm a born carnivore. That said, I still eat the favorites from my youth and new ideas from today with the emphasis on more veg, less meat and starch. I buy organic and local as much as possible. I don't allow any artificial sweeteners, etc.

Next week, I will be making my own catsup and chili sauce, to rid my cupboards of another couple of canned items. Next is homemade corned beef. My goal is to completely do without can and jar openers.
