Nothing is more Canadian than beer and Barbecue! Canadians really know how to appreciate a cold beer paired with some delicious BBQ because let’s face it; since we only have 4 months of summer, we know how to make the most of what we have.
Everyone knows all of the stereotypes associated with Canadians including: we’re all very polite, talk like we’re from Newfoundland and live in igloos. Of all these stereotypes, there is one commercial that I always think got it right on, and this video really does make me proud to be Canadian! You have to know the one I’m talking about, Molson Canadian’s I AM CANADIAN commercial. If you have not seen it, I suggest you watch it.
This weekend, make sure to cook with local Canadian pork and beer! I have attached a recipe to get you started. Please, remember this weekend to say it loud and proud, I AM CANADIAN!… Thank you.
