雖然還有好多食記/遊記還沒刊登,不過孕婦難得頂著大太陽以及中暑的風險跑出室外參加活動,所以就先讓我插播這一篇吧!

話說,我們都知道7/4是美國國慶日。但應該比較少人知道加拿大的國慶日是7/1。而這天在台灣的加拿大人都會舉辦一場大型活動慶祝。往年好像參加過一兩次。除了有喝不完的啤酒(要付錢的),還有吃不完的美食!少不了的也有音樂,當然,也有加拿大籍的帥哥美女一飽眼福!

There are still a lot of articles pending, but I feel obliged to post this one first.

We all know that July 4th is the American Independence Day. But a lot of us don't know that July 1st is Canada Day! The Canadian expats in Taiwan held an event celebrating their day this past weekend. I'd been to one of these before. It seemed to be an event filled with food, booze, and music... of course cute boys and girls to look at as well.

天仙一直覺得跟加拿大的朋友比較投緣。雖然我的學位是在英國取得的,當然對英國愛是無庸置疑的。不過從小時候開始就認識許多加拿大人。就連去英國念書交到的好姊妹也是加拿大籍的。因此幾年前曾經參加過一次他們的慶祝活動。記得當年的活動似乎比較偏向年輕人為主題。不過今年走的卻是全家大小都可以參與的活動了!

I've always seemed to get along quite well with Canadians more. There is no doubt about my love for anything English, but it just so happens that I have more Canadian friends! My best friend in the UK was Canadian! So, years ago, I attended one of these celebrations before. The trend seemed seemed to have changed, though. Whereas previously, it was just an excuse for young people to get drunk, this year, the event was actually designed so that your entire family would have something they'd enjoy doing!

首先我們到了舞台區欣賞了一段表演,接著就到處晃晃。有些攤位只要完成一些小小的任務就有贈品。其實那些贈品很微不足道,不過值得一提的是天仙最愛的冰淇淋店竟然要來台灣了!(後來才發現天母店原來已經偷跑半年多了!)

We sat down on the grass for a show or two, then walked around. Some of the stalls had some simple games. If you participated, you get a free something. Most of these free somethings are so tiny they aren't really worth mentioning. But the one thing worth mentioning is that Dairy Queen will be in Taiwan! (Or so I thought at the time! Apparently a location had already been opened in Tienmu for more than six months!)

晃了一圈之後發現天啊!每一攤的食物都是我想吃的!雖然孕婦的食量是不可輕忽的,不過吃太撐也不好吧!只能挑個幾樣解解饞囉!

After walking around, I realised that I wanted to try all the food there! Although it is not wise to underestimate the appetite of a pregnant lady, still, it was not a good idea to devour too much food. So we had to be careful with our choices.

這裡充滿了刁嘴的加拿大人,想必隨便點都會有他們家鄉的味道吧!仔細看看掌廚的幾乎真的都是外國人。台灣人在這裡真的只能當助手而已~

The place was full of picky Canadians! We could easily assume that all the food here would taste somewhat authentic. If you look at all the people in charge of the cooking, indeed, all Canadians.

第一道挑戰的是nachos!雖然這道自己做並不難(dorritos撒上乳酪絲然後放進微波爐加熱)不過一看就知道跟自己隨便亂做的不一樣!裏頭還有加肉的!雖然這樣一份不便宜,不過來都來了,就別想那麼多了!盡情享受吧!

So, in the end, our first choice was nachos. Yeah, I know this can be easily rendered at home, but look! It's got jalapeños and meat! I couldn't possibly render taht at home! Mind you, it was a little pricy, but we're out having fun! So let's not dwell on that.

canadaday03

不過天仙最想吃的還是這道魁北克的名菜 - poutine!原本想說吃完nachos晃一圈再回來,沒想到回來之後竟然大排長龍!嚇死人了!不過這份poutine真的有排隊的價值!真的太好吃了!

The one thing I really wanted to have was the poutine! We thought we'd walk around and digest the nachos a bit before we get our poutine, but when we came back, there was a long line waiting! But oh, it was so worth it!

乳酪絲夾在剛炸好的薯條以及熱騰騰的gravy中間,兩邊的熱度剛好融化變成會「牽絲」的乳酪絲!好吃極了啊!

The cheese melted from the heat of the freshly fried fries and gravy! It was simply delicious! 

canadaday09

接著,老公說sausage dog都沒人排隊,去買個來吃吃看吧!反正孕婦的胃已經是無底洞了,當然okay!至於芥末為什麼會擠成這樣?那是因為天仙不愛芥末,但老公想要搭芥末。所以就事先交代老公,如果要芥末就只能淋一半~ XD

Once we devoured the poutine, the other half suggested that we might as well get a sausage dog. So we did. I couldn't see the bottom of my tummy anyway! And as for why the mustard looks like that? Well, since we were splitting the sausage dog, and I didn't want any mustard, the other half had to squeeze his mustard on only half the dog!

光泉在這裡也有擺攤(感覺超不搭的)。無奈孕婦也只能喝這個。只是大概因為是真的很不搭,銷路很不好,所以拿了兩瓶又送了兩瓶。這兩瓶我們決定帶回家去啦!

A soy milk stall was there as well, but judging from the fact that it was more of a 'booze' event, no one was really interested in the soy milk. So after we had already gotten two of these, they gave us another two! So we took these home!

既然都已經吃了垃圾食物就垃圾到底吧!反正這些東西我懷孕之後就幾乎都沒碰過!放縱一下(孕婦保持開心比較重要啊)!

Since beer was out of the question for me, at least I could have some ROOT beer, right!? I don't have these junk food very often, and since I was in such a jolly mood, let's not kill the fun. 

canadaday12

最後,囂張的老公還是決定要當著酒鬼孕婦面前喝上一瓶啤酒。真是可惡透頂啊!

And finally, the other half had a lot of guts to have his beer right in front of me! 


天仙念:  這天唯一的敗筆就是天仙沒有啤酒可以喝啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊!!!

  • 蝦蝦:

    沒有我想像中的好吃
    還是poutine最好吃了 :D
    關於那則新聞我是沒看過
    不過我想只要自己做好國民外交

  • 孕婦就是最怕,身邊的人一直吃好料,
    結果自己都吃不到。
  • Ivy:

  • Jasminelady
  • 哈,怨念好深~
    只能說,媽媽辛苦啦~
    產後哺乳還有很多東西要忌口
    這一段路還有得走 XD
  • Jasminelady:
    沒錯!
    這條路還很漫長
    不過這樣的犧牲是值得的~ ^_^

  • 謝蘿莉
  • 這種活動我也好想參加呦!
    聽天仙的形容就覺得很有趣 >///<
    不過妳說的那個天母的冰淇淋是不是倒了不會掉的那個XD
  • 謝蘿莉:
    其實真的滿好玩的
    那天熱歸熱,不過還算可以接受
    冰淇淋的確是你說的那個!
    今天打算來貼文~ (很瘋狂地跑了一趟天母就為了這個冰淇淋~XD)

  • ♥Miss 卡蒂兒♥
  • 感覺好棒喔~~被天仙一介紹,感覺好像到了國外假日市集ㄝ...
    沒想到在台灣也有這樣的活動~~大堆!!
  • Miss 卡蒂兒:
    也是有外國友人宣傳才會知道的
    其實當初很猶豫要不要去
    挺個大肚子怕走累得沒地方休息
    不過去了才看到
    還滿多孕婦也有去的 XD

  • 小凉
  • 小凉推4^^

    假日來這邊逛 很不賴呢
    那牽絲的薯條太誘人了!
  • 小涼:
    真的很不錯
    我覺得前些年在海灘辦
    人潮控管很難
    這地方不大不小剛剛好
    所以感覺格外熱鬧~

  • KE
  • 每一樣食物看起來都滿邪惡的
    想不到台北竟然有這種活動
    熱狗芥末醬塗一半真的好有趣
    孕婦還是要乖乖喝豆漿比較好XD
  • 老K:
    是啊!其實雖然很不搭
    但好在有豆漿
    我才能靠他止渴啊
    我真的不喜歡芥末 >"<

  • 小珊珊
  • 推6~
    哈哈哈~這樣"霞"孕婦真的很過分喔.......(瞇眼)
    客家主題文化館也有這樣的活動阿~挺有意思滴!
    是說,那牽絲的薯條.......熱量太高喔...孕婦不宜(吐舌)
  • 小珊珊:
    熱量其實還好
    若要講到營養的話
    應該是nachos更不該吃吧 XD
    不過沒關係啦
    不是常吃,偶爾吃吃會開心的話
    比禁口還重要~ :D

    厚~那薯條,誰能抗拒的了呢!XD
  • claire:
    要吃道地的異國口味
    真得等這種活動準沒錯啊
    poutine真的超好吃
    跟現有的愛爾蘭薯條連鎖店差很多(那間其實我不愛)
