Today marks the sesquicentennial anniversary of Canada, aka Canada Day or Canada’s 150th birthday! There are many festivities occurring all over the country, including parades, fireworks and festivals, but I’m sure there are many throwing their own personal celebrations too!
Whether it be a BBQ or picnic (crossing my fingers the weather pans out) or just hanging out, it’s going to be a memorable occasion for many Canadians! If you plan to throw a party (or need an idea for a potluck), here are some Canadian food ideas and themes:
- Host a red and white themed party with goodies like red velvet cake, pasta (there are even ones in the shape of maple leafs!) and crab salad
- Have a Canadian wine and cheese gathering
- Maple themed dishes – baked goods, glazed meats, chocolates, etc.
- For the dessert lovers, butter tarts, Nanaimo bars, red and white jello, Timbits, ice wine
- Macaroni and cheese
- Canadian beer
- Ketchup chips
- Bacon! bacon! bacon!
For anyone looking for celebrations around Ontario, here’s a grand list of celebrations happening all over the province.
Happy Canada Day!
