Who knew cheese curds, gravy and french fries would be the best thing ever. Poutine is an indulgence that every person should enjoy when visiting Canada. Above is an example of some poutine, however, I had some of the best at Fritz in Vancouver.
I plan on making some when I return to the States.
As this is the first time I have actually had time to sit down let me first say, Canada Customs is not bad. (I think it took us 20 minutes). The Vancouver Airport is filled to the brim with this style of artwork, friendly people, and the smell of gravy. (more on gravy later)
Day two in Canada and I see A Canada goose. Not to be confused with the Canadian Goose who has a passport.
Hey there, (the one follower I have)
I will be traveling to Canada tomorrow and will hopefully getting a face full of the Canadian Culture.
Maybe I will learn something.
Maybe I won’t.
Maybe I will eat at Tim Hortons
Some suggested I eat putin?
Either way, I’ll try to update as I go. Now all I have to do is wake up at 430am and fly to Vancouver. Yay airports.
One of the first things I have heard about Canada has been this thing call the “double double” at Tim Hortons. Apparently, Tim Hortons is a fast-food chain dedicated to breakfast. While similar to the Dunkin Donuts model, this style of breakfast fast food is more widely praised, (or so I have discovered…)
When searching the Tim Hortons website, I could only find inklings of the infamous “double-double” menu item. The one solid piece of information of the “double-double” was this weird “Match made at Tim Hortons” piece that indicated a marriage happening over the Timmies.
"Almost four years ago now, in Calgary, I met my match at Tim Hortons! My husband and I were both in a lineup for lunch at Timmies, he during a break at work and me because I was craving a double double and had driven into Calgary from where I was living at the time. He was waiting for his everything bagel and I ended up with my order before him. We struck up a conversation and by the end of lunch had exchanged phone numbers and email addresses. Now it’s four years later and we’re married and have a baby daughter and thank fate or our mutual love for Tim Hortons for bringing us together! At our wedding, it was somewhat of a theme that we were a match made in Tim Hortons, and as a gag gift our relatives bought us Timbits and made us open them in front of our entire reception. Thanks, Timmies, for bringing us together!!”
The only thing I gather from this web-adventure is that 1) Tim Hortons website is poorly worded (look who is calling the kettle, black) and 2) I might be able to find the love of my life if I order a “double double.”
Long story short, the double double is a coffee and donut combo. (Thanks Google Images)
