Poutine

Mary, poutine is cheese fries covered in gravy. Yum, yum. We get them whenever we're camping in Quebec.

No, Morgan...

I've never eaten poutine. But I already admitted I knew nothing about any of that stuff on Rick's lists. :hap2 (Thanks, Tod, for telling me what poutine is.)

Yep, that's a Yankee

Boy, Rick, you sure know how to ask those Texas questions. Those are the questions we have on our Texas immigration forms. You can't become a true Texan 'til you answer 'no' to every one of the questions! <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3da1ac1837d9dsm_cowboy.gif/>

Mary

I have never eaten Okra - knowingly! :)


*Okra (also known as gumbo), is a tall-growing, warm-season, annual vegetable from the same family as hollyhock, rose of Sharon and hibiscus. The immature pods are used for soups, canning and stews or as a fried or boiled vegetable. The hibiscus like flowers and upright plant (3 to 6 feet or more in height) have ornamental value for backyard gardens.

(re:same family as hollyhock, rose of Sharon and hibiscus???)

and who wants to know what those are? What ever happened to carrots peas and potatoes? (POTATOES!) :wak

Canadian???

I got a disturbing number of the Canadian ones...

Maybe it's something being exuded by the Boler. :jester

As far as fries with gravy...
Took me a while to warm up to them - but they're one of the things I really miss about the Great White North.

What do I miss the least? --> ICBC :bh
