No, I didn't Go to Canada


Maple Cream Cookies from Canada

I wish I were the one who went to Canada, but no, unfortunately not. One of the students of the language school I work for gave these to me as a souvenir yesterday.
Yum! :D
It must be beautiful in Canada now... with maple leaves turning colors...

I live in Canada ^^V. And yes, autumn is very pretty here. I'll take a picture of the valley that I walk across every morning to school on Monday... it's absolutely breath-catching! I don't know if I can post a picture in the comments section though ^^". I'll try!

Obachan,
I have cravings for those maple cookies sometimes...mmmmmm yum! Yes, the autumn is very beautiful here in Vancouver, BC. Even my dog loves to play in those pretty coloured leaves!

hello Obachan.
Unfortunately Vancouver is raining and bit nasty.. Those cookies remind me of the maple syrup farm I visted in my middle school. It was amazing experience for sure. I still remember taste of hot syrup poured over fresh snow to make real mample candy. yummm~. warm and not sweet but almost like chestnut....

Hi Obachan! How are you? Wow these cookies look pretty! Is there a filling in between? By the way, how are your pumpkin cookies doing?

Hi, I found your blog when I was searching for Japanese recipes.

Those look like the cookies I sent with my son, who is currently at Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies. I am from Richmond, BC, Canada so I also gave my son smoked salmon to give as a gift.

I spent 3 hours last night reading your wonderful blog. I tried to leave a comment on one of your entries from 2005 re:raw eggs on rice. But I don't think it got through.

I LOVE your blog!!

Hi guys!
Thanks for leaving comments and sorry I didn't respond earlier. Something unusual happened... I got sick. I'm not sure if I caught a cold or I was sick of having to take a test. Last sunday, I needed to take an (expensive) English test. At the end of the test, I was already feeling heavy all over with pain in the joints. Then my fever went up real quick that night to almost 40 C (104 F?). It was a pure luck that I didn't have to work at the bento shop Monday morning. But from Tuesday on, I had to pack bento from 9am to 2pm, take a shower, go shopping for the Halloween event scheduled on this Sat., then straight to work at the language school. Yeah, skipping lunch every day. My fever is still around 37 C and I had no chance to experiment on the pumpkin cookies...I'll be baking them tomorrow night, pretty much based on the original recipe.
Anyway, let's hope that I can survive tomorrow and Saturday, AND have a real rest on this coming Sunday ALL DAY!

It was very pretty when my wife and I went last month. You should try to go sometime. Not now, though. The exchange rate is horrible.
