From a military base in the Ottawa region, Jacqueline DeBruin writes:
We will be having a group of neighbours over for our bbq; we live on a military base, so we have a lot of new neighbours every summer and thought this would be a great way to get to know each other.We’re keeping it simple and kid-friendly; burgers, hot dogs, assorted salads, and I expect a fair amount of beer (that part’s not so kid-friendly, I’ll admit!).My husband and I are from Alberta, so we always make sure we get Canadian beef. We buy buns baked at the local Independent Grocer (Bissonnette), and the salad ingredients and condiments like tomatoes, lettuce, and onions, come from the Farm Boy up the street; they get the freshest local produce, often picked the same day it’s sold. Delicious!
