I woke up today and feel crushed by homesickness. I don’t know if it was the hints of maple syrup in a meal I had out last night (blind taste testing, somehow I picked out maple syrup!), the fact that I have been gone almost a year now or the fact that Subway Sandwiches doesn’t have their signature ‘sub sauce’ here (just kidding, but that does really bother me). My other half thought it would be a good idea for me to write about something Canadian – which I mulled over the decided was either the best idea or worst idea… Great because I think it is important to highlight amazing Canadian products, things and designers, bad because well it makes me sort of sad. Let’s hope its therapeutic!
Enough with the whining and Debbie Downer chit chat and more home talk!
How better to start then with a funky map of Canada? Spotted here. I laughed when I found this link because it reads “Englishmuffin_Canada” – don’t know why I find that so funny but I do. Oh gosh, I miss English muffins with Canadian peanut butter.
