Monday: Poutine and Caesars

Today Hannah met us for lunch at Suave for some poutine - a popular dish in Canada consisting of french fries and cheese curds covered in gravy.

After Hannah finished work that afternoon, we went grocery shopping and did some errands/housekeeping.  Hannah picked up the mail from the post office (no mail boxes in Hudson -- everyone's got a box with key at the post office) and Herm watered the plants!

That night Hannah made us Caesars, which are like a Bloody Marys but using Clamato juice instead.  Clamato is a mix of tomato juice and clam broth.  Caesars generally contain vodka, Clamato, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and celery salt -- with a celery stalk sticking out.  We forgot to buy celery at the grocery store, but the drinks were surprisingly delicious. (I had doubted the clam broth...)

We somehow got roped into playing Monopoly (Canadian version, obviously), which Hannah and I are clearly not fans of:

The boys were the ones excited to play, so it was ironic that Hannah and I owned them.

We made fajitas for dinner, then played a bit more Monopoly until it was time for bed.
