Sugar Shack

3.21.2010

We celebrated my mom's birthday yesterday having brunch at the Sugar Shack. Scrambled eggs, pea soup, potatoes, ham, pancakes, sugar pie and of course "oreilles de crisse", a traditional Quebec dish that consists of deep fried smoked pork jowls. I'm not a big fan as I find it way too salty. I did eat everything else though :) And you can't leave the sugar shack without having maple taffy on a stick. YUMMY!!! Boiling maple sap which then becomes maple syrup is poured over clean snow. It then thickens and you twist it on a popsicle stick ready to be eaten. I look forward to this time of year just to eat this.
It was a great day to spend the first day of Spring.

The ceiling of the sugar shack was adorned with leaves, branches and lights.

NEVER heard of a sweet that required snow! We get snow here all the time--someone needs to bring that idea over to America :)
