Olympic Celebration

Some of our fun friends came over for dinner last night. They happen to be Canadians. And the other fun friends who came thought it would be fun to bring a Canadian dessert in honor of said friends (and the Olympics, of course). This friend is a trained pastry chef, so I knew it would be a winner. If any of you are looking for a fun Canadian treat to munch while you watch the Olympics, try Nanaimo Bars! Yum, yum! Warning: the recipe does sound a bit involved--you may feel like a pastry chef as you make them!
And since we ate them after a heaping serving of vegetable & lentil curry over brown rice, I really didn't feel too bad about enjoying these little beauties!

I was already planning to make those this weekend as an Olympic treat! When I did a search for Canadian food, this was the only thing that caught our eye. It's a little hard to find saskatoon berries or moose around here, or I would have made a recipe with those ingredients, for sure.

Thanks for the post, Monette :) We had a fun night, and I'm glad you all liked the dessert so much!

I am so glad to hear that you are hanging out with Liz and Nate- they are way awesome. I haven't kept in touch with them but think about them from time to time.
