Happy Canada Day!

Today is Canada Day.  It was so nice to have an extra day off work.  We went to the Mackenzie King Estate (for non-Canadians, he is a former Prime Minister) in Gatineau Quebec.  We listened to the Sons of Scotland bagpipe band, Evie loves bagpipes, she said it is her favourite instrument.  God help us if she wants to learn bagpiping.

Last night we made “Canada Day Strawberry Yogurt Ice Pops” to use up the rest of our strawberries.  It is really easy. Take 1lb strawberries, washed and hulled.  Puree with ¼ cup powdered sugar and 2tsp lemon juice.  In ice pop molds alternate layers of strawberry puree with vanilla yogurt.
