Canada Day is celebrated on July 1st across the country

    • July 1st marks the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada – that’s the technical explanation!
    • Canada Day also means fireworks, parties, parades, barbecues, special events and the year’s biggest national party.

I make an easy, fun Canada Flag Cake from Ontario Strawberries, Jell-o and real whip cream. I top it with sparklers & it is an instant crowd pleaser at the festivities.

  • What else is on the menu?

My Canada Day Menu

The Drink

Spicy Caesar (with horseradish, lime and celery stalks). If you order a Caesar anywhere in the world but Canada, you’ll likely get a salad and not a cocktail. Cheers!

The Snack

Local Ontario five-year-old Cheddar and Dare Breton Crackers

The Salad

Romaine lettuce, mandarin oranges, local strawberries, toasted almonds with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing

The Grill

The homemade hamburger topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions on a ‘kaiser’ bun

The Side

Red skin potato salad made with plain yogurt, lemon juice, dill, cucumber and celery

The Dessert

Maple Butter Tarts or my famous Canada Flag Cake

What are you going to serve at your Canada Day party to toast this wonderful nation?
