A day to celebrate

Well, yes. Today's my mother's birthday. I just spoke to her for almost an hour. I'm happy to report that she spent a great evening at her brother's (my youngest uncle) yesterday and had a terrific dinner: a light salad, shrimps, Canadian filet mignon (those of you who have eaten Canadian beef know it's the best by far), vegetable and rice, plus an ice cream cake. Couldn't get any better for me.

Anyway, Mom: Again, happy, happy birthday and all of our best wishes to go along with a fantastic woman. We'll be there on your next birthday. And that's a promise!

I love you!

CS - It's true that Canadian beef is THE BEST!!! I had Brazilian and Argentinian women in my German conversation class, and one day the teacher asked them which country had better beef (thinking that she'd start a debate). The ladies said they didn't know for sure, but they did know that the best beef came from Canada.
There you have it!

Candian beef?

Is it moose or beaver?

CanadianSwiss said...

Ahhh, TBF... Coming from the master of the Weber grill, a Brasilian and Argentinian, the truth has been spoken. You know what? I could imagine you writing an entry about that theme.

Fab- I think you lost an "a" somewhere

WE live very close to a butcher who with credit to P's cooking as well has produced the most incredible meals. And yes it's
Canadian for sure!

By the way, I've got this kitten here who won't let me type because he insists on being held in a specific chair at the computer. And If I don't hold him, he just bites me... Too odd, just love no rubs for him today... LOL

Glad your mom had a great bday!

While I am sure Canadian beef is great, I wonder if it can truly stack up against a good old American Midwest Omaha, Nebraska steak?

Just kidding, I am sure it is great.

Aww, that's so nice. Happy Birthday to your mom from another fan of Canadian beef. :-)

Awww. Happy, happy birthday, though belated, to your mom.

I had no idea Canadian beef is the best. Too bad no one told me because I would have tried it last week, just to make sure :) I went for seafood every chance I got! Cedar-plank salmon was out of this world.

The Big Finn said...

TMS - I've had both. I think Canadian beef is better!

CanadianSwiss said...

Wow! It's time I start commenting back!

ET: Just don't let Kitty get his claws on one of P.'s beef dinners ;-)

TMS: I'm sure it can stack up to it ;-)

Christina: Looks like we can already start up a Canadian beef fan club. I'll pass on the good wishes :-)

Ginnie: Thank you. There's always a next time for the beef, but I know that the seafood is great, too.
