Tonight's White House state dinner

On the menu for tonight's White House state dinner for Prime Minister Trudeau: poutine. Really.

Heavens no! It is a real, well really, great thing! Almost fitting as a religious symbol.

Well, then I'll have to give it a try.

People always make fun of Haggis but, after trying it, I found it was actually quite tasty. (I do draw the line at Black Pudding, however ...)

Same for me. I think the sheep's stomach puts people off, but you don't actually eat that part, even if the haggis is so authentic that it is actually prepared with that casing. I still haven't tried poutine... and apparently it wasn't actually on the state dinner menu, either.

So where does a California boy find cheese curds? It's a long way to Wisconsin!

Someone who seemed reliable, told me cheese curds are unaged mozzarella bits.
