Gary Strike sent me this memory and I thought we should jog everyone’s memories– especially for Canada’s 150th. Anniversary.
“A number of years ago I was driving Lyle Dillabough up to my cottage. Before we left I asked Lyle to write a song called Proud Canadians. Lyle agreed and began the whole thought process and started to piece it together. By the time we got to my cottage, which was an hour and a half drive, he had half the song written. Lyle is such a great music composer that at 9:00 pm. he had the song completed. 
Within a week we had the song recorded and  the song got plenty of media coverage on CJOH, The New RO and other station. To our surprise the song was featured on the news on Canada Day. I just realized that the song is a very good depiction for our 150th. Anniversary.”- Gary Strike
 
As a footnote Valerie and Gary are planning on going to “the Hill” on Canada Day and create a Canadian Unity Signature Flag which is a special Commemorative 150th. Anniversary Flag. I agree with Gary and this is a “blast from the past” Lanark County memory

POUTINE
Ingredients
1 quart vegetable oil for frying
1 (10.25 ounce) can beef gravy
5 medium potatoes, cut into fries
2 cups cheese curds
Directions
Heat oil in a deep fryer or deep heavy skillet to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). While the oil is heating, you can begin to warm your gravy.
Place the fries into the hot oil, and cook until light brown, about 5 minutes. Make the fries in batches if necessary to allow them room to move a little in the oil. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
Place the fries on a serving platter, and sprinkle the cheese over them. Ladle gravy over the fries and cheese, and serve immediately.
VARIATIONS
Add cut up cooked chicken or hamburger.
Use shredded mozzarella cheese in place of cheese curds.
Italian Poutine: Substitute marinara for gravy.
BBQ Poutine: Substitute a light BBQ sauce for gravy.
