You’ve heard of poutine and maple syrup, but what about Nanaimo bars, ketchup chips or beaver tails? (Relax, it’s just a dessert!) There are tons of dishes, brands and products beyond the obvious that are just as—if not more so—quintessentially Canadian as those well known staples. In honour of Canada Day, here is a list of 34 uniquely (for the most part) Canadian foods you should know. Sounds pretty delicious, eh?
Canadian Red, White & Bacon Skewers (And a Watermelon Beaver)
This is probably the most simple Canada Day appetizer you will ever make. You can have this made in no time at all and it certainly makes a big impact on the table. Plus...it has bacon. Win...win...baby! Sue and I decided to also share our watermelon carving of a beaver. It is surprising simple to do. You can find a how-to video for step-by-step instructions here - Canadian Living. If you want something healthy and REALLY cool to impress your kids, you should totally make this beaver…
We've cheated with some pre-cut leaves to make this leaf bunting, but you can get the kids to cut out their own (using our templates, or perhaps tracing round some leaves that they collect from outdoors) for a fun Autumn craft and pretty display!

Canada Day Cupcakes with FREE Printable Flag Template.
Since my sweet hubby will have to celebrate Canada Day here in the States, I decided to have some festivities this coming Sunday to put a smile on his face :) We will be having my family over for lunch anyway so I figured, "Can't go wrong with cupcakes!" I have so many ideas in mind: red velvet to cream stuffed or swirly red and white icing ideas...but I also have a budget and limited time. And the husband doesn't have a broad taste palet so I decided to go with simple chocolate chips…
