For all of us Canadians not living at home, I recently came across a website from which you can order all your favourite delicacies. mmhmm.
It is canadianfavourites.com
They have all kinds of junk food, montreal bagels, and even flour and canned salmon. I found it in Canadian Geographic magazine. Now I don't have to bug family and friends so much.
Paprikat - where is home for you? If you're in Vancouver there would be lots of Tim Hortons. You are so right about the coffee. I just love it. The perogies, I hear ya! I love the chedder and potato ones. My Ukrainian grandmother used to boil them (I know some fry them) and then toss them with fired onions, bit s of bacon, and then sour cream. They are great with a dill white sauce to. Sauerkraut ones are tasty too. No such thing as a skinny Ukrainian!!!

I guess it's a good sign when you think of all the options in the world, I'd still choose nursing. I do give a lot, but I get a lot too from my patients. Never a dull moment in our co-ed rooms!!That is very rewarding.
I was on sky train a couple of times. Would have felt like a misplaced russian if it wasn't for my sister taking the lead.The lit up zone 'maps' look greek to me. She lives in North Van - works VGH. With our new snow fall to night, I wish vernon had a handy transit system.
Our hospital serves what they call a layered perogy casserole. Todays lunch actually. Uses lasagna noodles, layer of mashed potatoes and cheese, noodles, cottage cheese, noodles, fried onions. It's actually not to bad, but don't tell baba I said that.
