Nothing said Oh Canada more to me this year than Ginette Reno singing our national anthem at the hockey games:)♥I love her.
Oh and Oli with the flag..acting like Carey Price♥ I took some photos of him early Spring with the flag..can't believe how bare the gardens were!
I love my David's Tea too.That Oh canada tea? tastes like a day at the Sugar Shack..It's got tiny maple leaves in it..Always a cute surprise in certain ones..and the names..Gotta love em.
If you are having people over for Canada day..or even July 4th:)
I heartily recommend this quinoa dish I gleaned from Julia~
Spinach and Mushroom Quinoa.
I am now addicted..I add toasted pine nuts..
And these maple syrup muffins..I was on a mission to try and recreate muffins I loved at Lafayette's..after a few attempts..this is the closest I came..
I halve the recipe.. as whole is too many.
so this is what I do..
I can't tell you how good they are..
1 cup natual yogurt..not vanilla..not flavored..greek could do I am certain
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup Organic maple flakes
1 extra large egg
1/2 cup oil..light...canola..corn..
1 1/2 cups Oatmeal Crsip cereal..and just SCRUNCH it..
2tsps WATKINS Maple extract.( bought in Massena NY).McCormick..bought here.. is not pungent enough..I have read that KAF is the best..shipping to Canada is too $$ for 1 item..
1 cup of flour
2 tsps baking powder
pinch of salt
extra maple syrup..
1.Mix yogurt and baking soda
2.Add brown sugar,.maple syrup ,maple flakes, egg and oil.Mix well~
3.Add cereal and maple extact(no oats as it changed the consistency of what I wanted}..Mix well..
4.Add flour baking powder and salt..Mix well.
Pour a dollop of maple syrup in the bottom of your muffin cups..
Fill muffin cups and bake at 350 F for 25-30 mins..
This recipe makes 9 substantial muffins♥
All this testing leads to extras.. so neighbors..:)..got the extras..
Bagged in a Kraft paper bag..doily on top..a Susan Branch stamp and jute twine..
I love her stamps..books.. etc..
Mentioned before..a box has been lost..
Was able to recover 1 book and the set of Girlfriends stamps..minus one of my faves in the box..the huggers:(
Used my last sticker for a friend a couple of weeks ago..
Everything SB is so dear♥
Have a great Canada Day..and for the 4th..a great July 4th!♥Independance Day.
Or in our world..Noah's 6th birthday~
