This photo is a collection of some of the special treats that we’ve brought home from Canada. If I had all these things readily available to me I probably wouldn’t choose to eat them very often but since we have access to them only when we’re in Canada we stock up. Years ago we would come home with huge bags full of chips but once we got them home they would sit in the cupboard going stale. Finally we realized that vacation food should stay on vacation. Do you have special vacation food?
We treat vacation as our chance to truly “pig-out”. Our activities revolve around the next meal or snack and we visit the same restaurants multiple times because we know it’s going to be an entire year before we get to have that food again. It’s nice to take a few things home to share with friends and to enjoy some treats a little after vacation is over.
I’m glad to be home and not eating at restaurants anymore. While it is fun for a while it gets old pretty quickly. This weekend I’m planning on cooking up some food inspired by our visit to Canada. Stay tuned.
