On Saturday it was my son’s 23rd Birthday in Brantford Ontario. We celebrated by having a Canadian Steak BBQ with PEI baking Potatoes, Ceasar Salad, cucumber and tomato salad purchased at a road side stand, and birthday cake. We also saluted Canada at 6 with Pelee Island Wine and Labatt’s beer.
A great time was had by all.

This menu was just plain fun. A few of us gathered on my deck and at 6 we stopped the grilling and toasted all of those who participated across the land and we toasted Canada.
