July 1, 2008 It’s Canada Day! I’ve got me Canadian beer… …and some butter tarts (from the farm where we went strawberry picking; I like mine with either pecans or raisins)… Everything I need to celebrate Canada’s 141st birthday! I love this country. 6 Responses to “happy birthday canada!” Misty the Kneedler July 1, 2008 Butter tarts are almost exactly like the pecan pie that is so popular in the southern portion of the US – especially in the Carolinas and Georgia, where my family originated. Even though I have lived in California for over 45 years pecan pie is still a major element in any holiday dinner I make. I can’t think of anything better to eat in celebration of a special day – enjoy! Reply holly July 1, 2008 Happy Canada Day!
