The Holiday Wishlist

Our hybrid holiday continues with treats and tunes and traditions from both our fair nations.

Though, sourcing my Americano snackage is always a struggle.

While it’s not impossible to get import goods — the Mexican deli runs a good trade in Reeces and flavoured popcorn, and the fancy department store stocks bourbon and poptarts in their Foods of the World boutique — to get them for  decent price is like infiltrating Fort Knox.

The new “American Candy Shop” on the high street (yes, that is its real name) sells a box of Lucky Charms for about $14, a Tootsie Pop for more than $1.  It’s highway robbery I tell you.

So we are asking Santa for some holiday staples to keep the festive season bright

The Bean Christmas [Food] List

Maple Syrup


Red Hots

Graham Crackers

Taco Sauce

Peanut Butter Chips

Flourescent wreath cookies, fireside s’mores, and Boxing Day pancakes, here we come!

[Did you spot the rogue item? Quesedillas may not be firm Christmas favourites, but they are perfect for quick, warming lunches after snowy treks. Trust me.]

Here’s hoping Santa brings your favourite treats to the party this winter.

    Great list….great ideas….since you all have moved your apartment where would those of generous heart and brimming beneficence send such items gastronomique?
