    All the other chickens are doing it... I JUST WANTED TO FIT IN AND BE COOL, OKAY?! :sad:

    Just kidding.

    Where my Canadian chickens at? I figured that a provincial breakdown would be too much since there seems to be so few of us. Come sit on down and pull up a plate of maple bacon lobster poutine if you're Canadian/have visited Canada/plan on visiting Canada/etc. :)

    tehe. I was debating doing this too. I think an Ontario group might be just little ol' me though.

    Maple bacon lobster poutine sounds like heaven in a fried potato piece.

    I feel the need to point out that I have had lobster poutine before. It was AM-AH-ZING!!! Instead of gravy though (which I agree wouldn't make much sense) it was hallondaise sauce. I don't think it really counts as a poutine to be quite honest, but it was sooo good. I paired with a Keiths.

    I'd be there with you! Honestly, I think it would mostly be Ontario Canadians, so I almost made an Ontario thread, but then I felt bad for chickens from other provinces because I feel like a lot of them would feel lonely. :p

    Doesn't it, though?! I'm not 100% about the maple, but lobster and bacon sounded good... Maple was just to make it super duper Canadian. :p

    SO JELLY! Sounds delicious.

    J and I intend on doing a culinary road trip to Montreal -- hopefully in October -- and we intend to go to Garde Manger for one of our meals. They apparently have this amaze-balls lobster poutine -- gravy and all, but it might be a seafood based gravy. I'm not sure.

    BC chicken here! When I was in Montreal, I mentioned that I like Costco's poutine and the looks I got... I shut my trap about poutine after that!

    I haven't lived in Canada since 2008, and have only been for a few weeks over the last three years. I want to go back!! Although I am a hostage of the American government right now and cannot leave the country until the first part of my green card application has been processed. Which will be about January. A few weeks ago at work I was having a good laugh because there was a Labrador Retriever in a run next to a Newfoundland. No one else understood why it was humorous. I also write all my paperwork with Canadian spellings. Someone finally noticed I used "colour" and I've been doing it for a year.

    Once J is done with his fellowships/residency stuff I really want to move back to Ontario. He of course wants to move to Minnesota to be back with his family. I try to tell him I won't have children until we are back in Canada with health careā€¦

    I would eat lobster poutine with hollandaise, I don't like gravy. Congealed meat drippingsā€¦ *shudders*

    My brother lives in Montreal so I am up there fairly often. That is the poutine place I prefer. It is open 24/7. You read that right. :eek:

    Um, tell me where you got this.

    And no, you're not the only Ontario chicken. Though, I used to be. [emoji48]

    Hello from Alberta! I was also thinking about making the Canada thread, even though we are a large country (no, I don't know your cousin in Toronto).

    Hmmm what to say. I live in the bitterly cold in the winter Prairies, but the fall/summer weather has returned this week! Yes!

    Yes! One of a small handful of non-Canadians that haven't turned their nose up in disgust at the concept of poutine!

    Over the years, I have bestowed the holy wisdom of poutine to at least a dozen, if not more, Americans and British alike, and have been met with looks of pure revulsion.

    When a poutine food truck opened in Arizona, I was all over that. Fries with gravy?! It is so so so so good. What's not to like?!

    Fries and gravy -- fine. What people couldn't seem to get past was the cheese! Apparently that was some sort of blasphemous travesty.

    THE CHEESE IS THE BEST PART.

    The gravy is the best part!

    But the cheese is glorious.

    The last experience I had with poutine was not a good one - St. Pat's and I barfed it all up. Still love it though.
