Apple pie, Canadian?
American? Huh!
Don't forget that apples were artificially imported from the UK to the Americas.
Apple pie is British to the core!

These, however, are not, but they're very good!

Nah! Everyone knows that the French only eat roast boar!


(Actually, I like French cooking - but don't tell anyone)

You have mandarins in the winter-time in Canada, too? Same here - they were always a Christmas treat when I was young.

Here are some fabulous fruits:

That looks like a Minecraft watermelon^^

Growing up in Southern California in the midst of orange groves, it was a long time before I understood why people would buy mail-order boxes of them around Xmas.

Mincemeat Pie
I love this, and sometimes, living in the boondocks, it can be challenging to find the stuff. One year, I was looking for it in a major supermarket, and none of the employees even knew what it was. I finally found it at the little corner store in San Martin. A couple of years ago, someone brought me a jar from England. OMG, that was delicious.

Pancakes with cherries & cream!
There's a cafe in Brighton which does fifty versions of 'pancakes and ...' - amazing.

I've never understood why they call it 'mincemeat', Alice, but definitely an item!

This is probably my favourite mixture - except for the raspberries, they are all found growing wild (though the strawberries tend to be a bit smaller than the cultivated ones).

I use a lot of those for my morning smoothies^^^.....I always wondered to why they call it "mincemeat"....we have a pie made of actual minced meat,beef or pork,
or combination of both,usually made during the holidays,we call them simply meat pie.





Tomato pizza,served cold summer treat.

Ah, pizza! My favorite is the Margherita...fresh mozzarella, tomatoes & basil. Isn't it gorgeous?



Mincemeat from Wikipedia: English recipes from the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries describe a mixture of meat and fruit used as a pie filling. These early recipes included vinegars and wines, but by the 18th century, distilled spirits, frequently brandy, were being used instead. The use of spices like clove, nutmeg, mace and cinnamon was common in late medieval and renaissance meat dishes. The increase of sweetness from added sugars, and those produced from fermentation, made mincemeat less a savoury dinner course and helped to direct its use toward desserts.

(I came very close to posting some dates yesterday. When I worked the fairs, the first one of the season was/is the Indio Date Festival. It was always one of my favorites due the fact that the dates are at their freshest, and there are so many stands selling them and offering free samples that I could have my fill without having to buy.)
