At the time, I didn't really have an answer besides the obvious one which is my family and friends and our tubby little fur ball Wembley - who I have missed terribly every single day. Hi mum, hi dad!
Just before we left and since we've been gone we've had several friends announce engagements and pregnancies and knowing that we are likely going to miss some of these weddings and the births or these beautiful babies is a hard pill to swallow. Thank god for Skype, which makes it all a little easier.
Now that I've been here almost two months, I've realized that I am starting to miss things and not suprisingly they all happen to be food!
So in no particular order, these are the things I would be eating if I were in Canada right now...
The french canadian in me is dying for a heaping helping of fries topped with cheese curds and smothered in delicious gravy. If anyone wants to send me a can of St. Hubert's poutine gravy sauce I will be forever indebted!

SWISS CHALET QUARTER CHICKEN DINNER FESTIVE SPECIAL
A quintessential Canadian meal if ever there was one. You can't ship a meal over here but you can help a girl out by sending her a packet of the chalet dipping sauce mix....send it along with the poutine gravy and you'll be a superstar in my books!

A GOOD BURRITO
We were spoiled in Toronto with a ton of yummy places to go for for delicious burritos. England has a burrito chain called Bar Burrito, and while it satisfied a craving, it had nothing on my two favorites back in Toronto - Big Fat Burrito in Kensington and Quesada on King Street. I don't think a burrito would ship very well so if you're in Toronto please go and eat one and think of me!
