Canada Day Treats

Sue and I thought we would make some special treats for Canada Day this year to help celebrate Canada's 150th. We went with a distinctly red and white theme with a little poutine thrown in's poutine. We don't really need to explain, do we?
If you'd like to see more of our Canada Day creations simply click on the "Holidays" bar at the top of the page for links to more recipes perfect for celebrating Canada. 
We will share a few photos here and link up the individual blog posts below the different photographs. If you have any questions about what we are sharing then, please, feel free to comment below. 

Our Watermelon Strawberry and Feta Salad (Link HERE) is not only perfect for Canada Day but any day all summer long. It is crisp, refreshing, sweet, and tangy and can be whipped up in about 5 minutes. 

Another Watermelon and Strawberry combination that works sooooooo well for Canada Day - our Watermelon, Strawberry, and Cherry Adult Slushie. A little vodka, a little tequila, a whole ton of tastiness. (Recipe HERE)

If you want something to impress your guests for Canada Day then look no further. This super simple red and white appetizer comes together with 5 ingredients and about 10 minutes. Our Creamy Stuffed Peppers (Recipe HERE) should definitely be on your list of "must make" for your next get together. 

I love these red chicken drumettes Sue created for our Canada Day celebration. Not only are they totally cool because of how bright red they are - they taste amazing!! A combination of BBQ and Asian flavors with a sweet and sour dipping sauce make our Canada Day Drumettes (See recipe HERE) the perfect meaty appetizer for your family and guests. 

Cherries are always plentiful around our place this time of year. We decided to make some smooth and creamy Cherry Ice Cream (click HERE for recipe). The color may be a little more pink than red BUT it still works as a fabulous dessert for Canada's birthday. 

And lastly, we can't forget about the poutine!
We figured out a way to save those leftover fries from being wasted. We turned them into Waffle Poutine! That's right.... Waffle. Poutine. (Click HERE for link to recipe.)
If you've never had poutine (really? are there people out there who still haven't had poutine?) then you can start with this easy peasy "recipe" - there's only like 3 ingredients!! 

How are you celebrating Canada's 150th?  What are your favorite Canadian dishes?
