Canadian food

I was just eating my cockles and bacon when I realised I hadn't shown you any foodie pictures yet. All the food we ate in Canada, almost without exception, was very good. Let's look at some breakfasts today.

At Abigail's in Victoria, they offered a gourmet 3-course breakfast.

After a choice of croissant or cinnamon and raisin swirl, followed by fruit salad, we had to choose from homemade granola (the healthy option) or vegetable egg tower with tomatoes jam, provolone cheese, lamb and rosemary sausage and pesto potatoes or banana and raspberry crepe with whipped cream.

Husband chose the vegetable egg tower with everything.

I had the crepe.At Monroe's Diner in Clearwater Valley, Husband and Son-in-law had the Canadian breakfast.
Daughter had the pumpkin pie.
I had the waffles, strawberries and cream. (Can you spot a theme running through my breakfasts?)

Gosh, this is interesting to see a "foreigner's" impression of what is Canadian food. Some of us have been discussing this lately - what exactly IS Canadian food? I think I'd love everything you had, but couldn't ever have that much every day! Did you gain any weight? lol

Jay said...

Uh .... you like to eat desserts for breakfast! LOL!

I'd have gone for the bacon and the sausages and then I'd have asked them if they had any of those crispy fried potatoes to go with them!

Dragonstar said...

Yes, fruit is always a healthy option - isn't it? I adore raspberries!

Liz said...

Well done, morning glory! Quite right.

My pleasure, deb acle.

I ate a box of choc fingers last night, cherrypie ...

You should eat breakfast, hippy mama, it sets you up for the day!

We have to get our five portions of fruit a day, don't we,robyn?

THank you, magiceye.

Except maybe a choc hip cookie or a muffin, kiwi! (Typing mistake there but I think it's quite apt!)

Did I gain any weight, leslie? Oh yes!

Crispy fried potatoes, jay, yummy!

WE need our daily dose, dragonstar!
