Happy Birthday Canada!

Ahoy!

Being Newfies we celebrated Canada’s birthday with our favourite red-themed food: lobsters. With Canada Day falling in the middle of the week we decided to have a few drinks in the backyard and take it easy. Along with our lobster we had steak, Newfie mustard salad, and Kentucky macaroni salad, finishing off with Uncle Mike’s peanut butter squares! Check out our version of a backyard kitchen party here:
